Informally referred to as the Gun Club, the Sportsman’s Club on Peterson AFB disbanded due to construction of a housing project on the site just north of Silver Spruce Golf Course parking lot. Anyone interested in area shooting ranges should visit www.ppfc.org/ranges.htm.


The Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex is a joint project between the U.S. Army, El Paso County, the El Paso County Sheriff and the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife. 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. Click here for more information.
