We are located off of Hwy. 89, north of Prescott and Chino Valley, just south of Paulden, at mile marker 335 and Rolling Hills Road. Turn west on Rolling Hills Road and follow the signs to Gunsite. We are located about 3 miles from Hwy. 89.
NOTE: Most GPS systems and map programs (for example, Mapquest) will not give you reliable directions to Gunsite.
Many of our clients fly to Phoenix, Arizona and rent a car. The drive from the airport to Gunsite takes about 2 hours. Those with private aircraft can fly into Prescott (KPRC). Commercial flights from Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix to Prescott are sometimes available.
If you are staying in Chino Valley you should allow about 20 minutes driving time to get to class. If staying in Prescott, allow 35-45 minutes.
Please arrive at the classroom no later than 7:30AM the first day of class for final registration. Classes begin at 8:00AM and generally run to about 4 – 4:30PM. There is a lunch break each day and classes with night shoots will break for dinner prior to the night shoot. Your Rangemaster will explain the schedule for the week and let you know where you need to be each morning and afternoon.
Due to our location driving to town for lunch is impractical. If you wish to bring your own lunch there is a refrigerator in the lunch area for your use. If you wish to order lunches from our caterer a menu will be provided at registration. Lunches cost $8.00 per day. You may pay the caterer for the lunches you have ordered at noon the first day of class (cash or checks).
Water is provided at the classroom and on the ranges and we will provide you with an insulated drinking bottle. Gatorade is provided on the ranges during warmer weather. There are drink machines in the lunch area and you may bring your own drinks and snacks.
Shipping Ammunition or Firearms to Gunsite
Some clients prefer to ship firearms and/or ammunition to the school rather than traveling with them. You may ship firearms directly to us and we can ship them back to your home address after class. We are a federally licensed dealer; you do not have to ship firearms from a dealer to send them here for class. Although firearms may be shipped via U.S. Postal Service, we strongly recommend you ship them through UPS or FedEx. Both UPS and FedEx require handguns to be shipped Next Day Air. Long guns may be shipped by UPS or FedEx Ground. Please mark any firearms or ammunition sent for a class with your name and class date. We will hold them for you. You can pick up these shipments in the Pro Shop the first morning of class
