Using the Range

A daily rate of $25.00 allows you to stay and shoot as long as you want through the end of the business day. You can also leave and come back at a later time. Annual Range Members and Patriot Gun Club Members have unlimited use of the range with no range fees as part of their membership and half price for their guests.

The range is open to the public during normal business hours. You can come as often as you like and pay the daily fee. You don’t have to purchase a range membership, but that is the most cost effective way to use the range if you plan to come often.

It is difficult to predict what the wait might be at any given time. We have 15 lanes in Mooresville and 20 lanes in Matthews. Browse our retail pro shop, or watch the programming on our video monitors to entertain you while you wait. We plan to implement a reservation system for Members in the near future. Members will always have priority over daily rate shooters.

We don't accept reservations at this time.

We encourage you to bring your friends and provide Annual Members and Patriot Gun Club Members with guest passes to allow you to bring your friends at no charge. Additional shooters may accompany you in the range with payment of the $25.00 daily range fee. There is no charge to watch from our viewing area.

Yes, up to four persons may share a shooting booth/lane. Each person entering the range is required to go through the safety orientation and pay the daily range fee, regardless of whether they plan to shoot. Anyone that will not be shooting is welcome to watch from our viewing area.

Safety is our 1st priority. On their first visit, each shooter is required to view a safety video and complete a brief orientation with a Range Safety Officer. We have numerous reminders posted throughout the facility to remind visitors and shooters of our rules. Our Range Rules are designed to keep everyone safe. Please see a copy of our Range Rules here. A Range Safety Officer will be on duty at all times during normal business hours.

Point Blank Range has been designed from the ground up to be family friendly and we strongly encourage family memberships.

All persons between the ages of 8 and 18 must be accompanied in the range by an adult and a waiver of liability signed by the shooter’s parent or legal guardian.

Our target retrieval system is manufactured by Patriot Range Technologies, and has been used at the NRA Headquarters Range in Fairfax, Virginia, as well as many other commercial, military and law enforcement ranges across the country and around the world. This state-of-the-art target retrieval system allows the shooter to place the target at any distance in one foot increments from 3 to 75 feet. The 360° turning target carrier can turn front to back to on-edge and can be programmed to execute any course of fire that can be conceived. We have pre-programmed several courses of fire used by law enforcement agencies in their training, which challenge the shooter with shoot/no shoot scenarios. The targeting system can be programmed and executed at the shooting booth or from our master control console. The programmable features of the target system are available to annual and Patriot Gun Club Members at no additional charge, and to daily fee shooters for a small additional charge.

Yes, all bays of our range are designed for full downrange use. The ceiling of the entire range has been constructed with engineered concrete panels that will prevent any projectiles from leaving the range. Either bay can be used for tactical training and IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation) and IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) competitions.

Yes, we have leagues. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in a league and what type of league would interest you. Send your inquiries to jpaulo@pointblankrange.com.
