Nice facility, I live in Denver and it would be a good place to shoot - but they do not allow 50 BMG on ANY of the ranges (not even the 1,000 yard range), they do not allow full automatics of any caliber, they do not allow suppressors, they do not allow shooting at night or silhouette targets even if you are active duty.
They have way too much of what I do not need in regulations, they are WAY TOO Politically Correct and, in my opinion, are not true supporters of the 2nd Amendment or Shooting Sports.
As such, this facility is worthless to me, I have followed the rules when I have been there but I will not go back: I'd rather shoot in my basement.
Nevertheless, many people are happy to belong there...
Good shooting to all....

Any additional ranges? I live in Denver and normally go to Firing Line for pistols. I know its not the best but it is convenient and normally pretty empty. My issue is I want a better place to shoot rifle. The only place local is Cherry Creek Res. They only offer 50/100 yard targets, and pretty much only sitting firing position. Suggestions?

Great Guns Sporting in Nunn Co is a great range for rifle, pistol , they have 100, 200,300 yrd ranges along with multiple pistol , archery, and shotgun, all have roof and sandbags for rifle. they also have temp,humidity wind and barometric pressure indicators. There is a LGS called Pri-Paird that opened up 5 months ago in Lafayette that hosts a range day once a month at Great Guns, Jason and Travis owners of PP lease out an area and do Tactical shooting ie multiple targets varying distances, shoot from cover etc. Not just standing and shooting at a target. And most of all its SAFE. They meet at the store and then carpool up to GG. Check them out.

Poor Hickenlooper. How's the anti-firearm bastard ever going to get reelected?

Democrats came under heavy criticism Friday for driving Magpul Industries out of Colorado by pushing an aggressive gun-control agenda, a move that could cost the state more than $80 million annually.

Republican state Rep. Lori Saine said she was “saddened to see this completely partisan law, widely considered unenforceable by sheriffs across Colorado, cause Magpul to leave our state.”

“The magazine ban did not garner one Republican vote in the House or Senate, and now as a result of this one-sided, Democrat-sponsored law, more than 200 people will lose their jobs and their ability to provide for their families,” said Ms. Saine in a statement. “[T]his move will cost the state of Colorado over $80 million a year in revenue.”

Officials at Magpul, which makes polymer firearms accessories, announced Thursday that the company will move its corporate headquarters to Texas and its manufacturing facility to Wyoming. Both are now based in Erie, Colo.

The relocation comes as a result of a measure signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper in March that limits ammunition-magazine capacity to 15 rounds. Magpul is among the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against the law. . .

Meanwhile, Hickenlooper is as quiet as a mouse, frightened to death that the issue will cost him the election. His poll numbers, as I reminded him in his Toys for Totalitarians letter, are none too good already.

So far no Democratic lawmakers, including Mr. Hickenlooper, have commented publicly on Magpul’s decision to leave Colorado, although several Democrats have said that job growth is their top priority for 2014.

House Speaker Mark Ferrandino said at a press briefing Friday that he would not support a Republican-led effort to repeal the magazine law, adding he did not want to “rehash the same fights we had last year,” according to the Denver Post.​
Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman noted Friday that the three gun-control bills approved and signed in March were passed by the state legislature with no Republican votes.

“Democrats got what they wished for yesterday when Magpul Industries announced it would be leaving Colorado and taking over 200 jobs with them,” said Mr. Cadman in a statement. “It’s unfortunate that Democrats willingly chased a quality business like Magpul Industries out of Colorado for no reason other than petty politics. It’s even more unfortunate for the over 200 Coloradans who will be losing their jobs and falling behind on their bills as a direct result of irresponsible legislation from Democrats in Denver.”

The issue has already become fodder for this year’s gubernatorial race. Mr. Brophy and former Rep. Tom Tancredo, who are seeking the Republican nomination, blasted Mr. Hickenlooper for pushing Magpul out the door.

“This announcement is a stark reminder of the damage that this governor has done, and continues to do, to Colorado,” said Mr. Tancredo in a statement. “Hickenlooper gladly signed anti-gun legislation, with full knowledge that his actions would alienate and demonize law-abiding citizens, and job-creating businesses such as Magpul.”
