Established in 1996, Great Guns Sporting has seen much growth over the years. What began as a 10-station sporting clays course has blossomed into an all-inclusive shooting complex that is open to the public. Visitors to Great Guns now enjoy an expanded sporting clays course, five trap fields, two skeet fields, a five-stand layout, archery, rifle and pistol ranges as well as pheasant and chukar hunting.
Gunsite Academy has used this facility in the past to run training classes with instructors from Gunsite Academy We have none scheduled at this time.
A membership is a very economical way to enjoy all that Great Guns has to offer. Members get access to Great Guns rifle, pistol and archery ranges as well as receiving reduced rates on clay targets, ammunition and upland hunting. Membership includes all immediate family members under the age of 18 in the household. Memberships cost $15 per month plus a $75 initiation fee.
A Membership Agreement and Range Quiz are both required for membership, and can be printed out, completed and mailed or completed in the office during our business hours. Please include a check, money order or cashier’s check. Payment may also be made over the phone or in person with a MasterCard or Visa.
There are no restaurants or accommodations near the range. I am working on a potential caterer that would be interested in taking orders like what you have at Gunsite…but for now, students should understand that leaving for lunch will not be practical.
Lodging is roughly the same distance to Greeley, Fort Collins, or Cheyenne. Those towns have dozens of hotels and getting lodging should not be a challenge for anyone. Wellington is the closest town, and has 1 hotel. I have listed a few of the options that are at the closest edge of each town.
