The Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex is a joint project between the U.S. Army, El Paso County, the El Paso County Sheriff and Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service. The CMSC also received a significant contribution from The National Rifle Association (NRA). The 400 acre site sits on Army land near Interstate 25 just off mile marker 132. The entrance is located just outside Fort Carson's Gate 20 security perimeter. Shooters using the range will not have to enter Fort Carson to use the range.
The Range Complex is a three (3) phase project.
The Ranges are now complete and open and includes 120 shooting positions across seven (7) ranges.
The second phase of the project will include the construction of five (5) skeet & trap ranges and a club house. The club house will include a retail store, classrooms and offices.
Completion of the project will occur during the third phase with the addition of a restaurant.

This is a photo of the type of target frames which are used at the Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex. They fit into a pair of 'U' brackets permanently fixed into the ground. You can build your own very easily. They are constructed using 1" x 4" lumber planks with a cardboard insert to hold targets. In order to fit into the 'U' brackets, the outside dimension must be exactly 27", outside edge to outside edge. The height can be as tall as you want (the one shown here is 6'6" tall).
The CMSC also sells at reasonable prices, a variety of paper targets, including splater zombie targets. If you prefer you may bring your own paper targets.
Clay pigeon hand throwers are not permitted.
