DEPARTMENTAL RANGE PRACTICE PROGRAM: We offer a service to your Department’s officers so they can have a time and place to practice while improving their firearms skills. We maintain a log sheet of their range visits and activity. We require your officer’s to sign in when they come in. At the end of each month we total up the number of officers at $12.00 per visit. We then send you a copy of the log sheet along with the invoice. For departments that do not perform their annual firearms qualification with us the fee is $20.00 per visit.
We do not furnish ear and eye protection. We rent it or sell it.
NOTE THE FOLLOWING: On February 18th 2008 we qualified a department on their Annual Department Firearms Qualification. Nine officers per relay were on the firing line. We ran a total of twelve relays shooting day fire, night fire, shotgun day fire and shotgun night fire. They were finished in two hours. We have been serving Law Enforcement in this manner since 1995. We have strived to make improvements and maintain the highest level of safety and service, saving you and your department time in man hours and money. Any further questions that you may have are to get your officers scheduled for the range please give us a call or e mail Mike Hinshaw.

COMBAT SHOOTING: Combat shooting or tactical shooting can be performed with moving targets under low light, no light or blue light conditions.
Good guy / bad guy targets can be placed down range, selected to come in or go away from the officer or either selected up stationary position. The officer is instructed to engage moving from target to target (already in motion). A total of ten targets can be ran per relay.
Teaching the officer to utilize cover, identify target, directing fire to moving targets instead of a target standing still while under the stress of blue lights, siren and low light.
DEPARTMENTAL RANGE PROGRAM - MONTHLY BILLING
Take the extra mile to provide more firearms training for your officers.
Handgunners can maintain a training log showing each time the officer visits the range to practice. We invoice the Department every thirty days for this service.
If the officer is involved in a shooting, this log can be used to show the department's effort in providing additional training.
Officers do not have to be supervised by your firearm instructor while on our range. When they come in, they will read and sign our safety rules. This frees up having another officer or instructor tied up with this officer.
PRICING: $12.00 per visit unlimited amount of range time. For departments that do not perform their annual BLET firearms qualification with us the fee is $20.00 per visit.
REQUIREMENTS: Officers have to produce their departmental identification on each visit. Each officer will have to read and sign our safety rules before they can use our range on their visit. Targets, Ammo, Ear and Eye Protection not included by HandGunners.
ABOUT OUR RANGE (SAFETY)
Each shooting station has a wall between each shooter. This wall inside contains a 4'x8' sheet of steel.
The benefit of having walls between each shooter is if they should have an accidental discharge of their weapon, and the muzzle was accidentally pointed toward another officer or instructor, this could prevent serious injury or even death. Outdoor ranges have no protection between shooters.
Exterior walls of the firing range have 41 yards of concrete poured within them. This will contain fired rounds within the range.
Windows located in the wall separating the retail area from the firing range are bullet resistant and will withstand a .44 magnum fired point blank. An additional 1" of safety glass was added to the windows on the retail side. The windows aid in the viewing of the firing line and can give a better overall view of the operation.
A bullet trap is located in the rear of the firing range. It contains the fired rounds.
Ventilation system forces fresh air in from the outside blowing it across the shooters and down the range where it is exhausted in 2 different filtered exhaust ports down range.
Barricades can be placed in each shooting station. (Use under your decision.)
Lighting can be adjusted for night firing, overhead high and low beam head light simulation, and blue lights for night firing.
Tables and doors in shooting booths can be folded up, out, and locked into place. This will enable officers to shoot in the prone and kneeling positions.
Qualification relays are priced at 20 minute time intervals. If a single relay runs over 20 minutes we convert to $25.00 per officer.
SCHEDULING: All law enforcement and armed security agencies must schedule the firearms qualifications at least one week in advance.
