Pistol Range

There has been a fair amount of work done on the  pistol range as of late.  We hope it meets with everyone's approval.  If you haven't tried it out, we encourage you to.  There are targets or target stands for just about every level of "pistolero" skill.  If you have any suggestions for making it any better, please contact Don St. John 575-257-4575 or Larry Wimbrow 575-257-3943.  As the name implies, this portion of the facility is for pistols only, rifles of any type or caliber are expressly prohibited.

Reserving the Range

If you are going to request or reserve the range, notify the President (Don St. John @ 575-937-5176 and Sandman Armory (Tim Prather @575-257-3943) so it can be approved and put on the schedule/calendar.
