Welcome to Sportsman Shooting Center! Our two-hour program is designed for groups of one to four shooters, and you can book your visit to our facility in one of two ways: as a private experience for yourself or a group of your friends, or as an individual shooter in a mixed group. All of our packages include: 30 minutes of time in our electronically-scored 100 yard shooting tunnel to zero your rifle and optic, 45 minutes of instruction in our SimTarget laser simulator to refine your shooting technique, and 45 minutes of range time in our exclusive cinema projection range.
Our private package allows an individual (or group of up to four people) the opportunity to enjoy our training and range package in a private setting. To book a private session, purchase all four slots in any time period showing private group availability. We can tailor the program for private groups to match your desires and experience level. We can also easily accommodate private groups of more than four shooters – just call so we can schedule the appropriate amount of range time.
If you do not choose to purchase all four slots in a scheduled rotation, book as an individual. We will add other individual shooters until we have a total of four shooters in each training group.
*For the Private Experience you purchase all four spaces in a time slot. You can use this yourself, or bring up to three other friends along with no additional range fees.
**Individuals reserve a single spot in a mixed group of (up to four) shooters per class.
What to expect at Sportsman Shooting Center:
Please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled starting time. This time will be used to complete forms, introduce you to your instructor, inspect the ammunition you bring (or give you the chance to purchase additional ammunition at our retail store), set you up with a rental rifle if you need one, and provide you with a safety brief. Please secure any rifles carried into SSC in a case, and make 100% certain that it remains unloaded until your instructor tells you to load.
The first part of the program is our zeroing range. This 100 yard range is located in an underground tunnel beneath our facility. You will have the opportunity to shoot on this range to zero your rifle and optics. Instead of retrieving paper targets, scoring is handled electronically and you will see your shots displayed on a flat screen monitor next to your shooting position! We have an elevator installed to ensure that this range is fully accessible to shooters who cannot navigate the stairs.
The second stop is our SimTarget laser simulator. We have a separate training room set up just for this simulator. You will use a replica rifle fitted with an eye safe infrared laser, and shoot a variety of computer generated targets. The system’s playback feature lets your instructor show you how your barrel tracked on the target, where your shot hit, as well as the ideal aiming point. You will come away from this step a better shooter!
Following the simulator, you will move to the USA’s first live-fire hunting Cinema projection range. You will have the chance to shoot a variety of digital moving images of actual game animals. To make the experience any more realistic, we would have to bring in mosquitos! This action takes place on a 25 yard range that accommodates up to four shooters. The images are projected on a 12 x 30 foot screen. Automated sensors show you where your shots hit the target. The instructor runs the scenario, and the hunters take turns shooting.
You will need to bring 60 rounds of ammunition for your rifle, or purchase ammunition in our store prior to starting your program. We carry Norma ammunition in most hunting calibers, as well as less expensive range ammunition in standard hunting calibers. Call ahead to make sure we have what you will need.
Following the end of the program, please feel free to relax in our comfortable lounge equipped with a coffee/soft drink bar, and watch your favorite hunting shows or the action on our ranges on our widescreen television monitors. We also have a well stocked work area so you can clean your rifle before you head home.
