Located in Bald Knob Arkansas, Veterans Elite Tactical and Sport Shooting Center is a great location where you can shoot out to 800 yards. The range is owned by two brothers, Michael and Patrick McCarty who are both vets.
I had the opportunity to check the range out today and here is what I found.
-Ranges reach out from 100 to about 810 yards in approximately 100 yard increments.
– I spoke to the guys about how a someone could come from out of town and shoot. They said that for $45.00 you can come out, get a three month membership, qualify, and get a key card so you can come shoot from 9:00 to dark any day of the week. Even if you were only going to shoot for one or two days that is still a good deal for a range with this much distance.
– The range has covered benches, an indoor bathroom, multiple rifle ranges and pistol ranges. What really surprised me was the little pro shop that had more reloading components for precision shooting than the Cabelas or Bass Pro Shops near Dallas Texas. They have a couple hundred shooters, and a good number of them are pretty serious, so they have to keep a good stock of powders and bullets that are usually pretty scarce.
The range is challenging to shoot because of some pretty dense mirage, but with a good spotter you will have no problem engaging the steel at all distances.
Like most ranges with any appreciable distance you need to qualify, but the guys are realistic and practical shooters.
