Foothills Firearms Training Center’s Pistol Range provides students, former students, and immediate family a place to hone their self-defense shooting and drawing skills through the use of Action Target® reactive steel targets.

The ability to win in a violent encounter will depend on your preparation, training, and mindset. While training on static targets is good to develop shooting skills only tactical training will develop your fighting skills. Foothills Firearms Training Center encourages their students to develop their fighting skills by giving them free range time and personal instruction in gunfighting techniques.

Our range is open the first Saturday of each month from 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM and every Wednesday afternoon from 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM.  Call/text (864) 630-1883; e-mail, at least the day before coming to the range.

Shooters may furnish their own guns and safety equipment or they may use guns and safety equipment at the range. No guns or ammo are stored at the range so you must call/text or e-mail ahead to arrange gun use: (864) 630-1883 or No guns larger than 45 long Colt will be permitted.

Personal guns and ammo will be checked to make sure they meet reasonable safety standards. Shooters will be required to demonstrate safe gun handling techniques and knowledge of gun safety rules prior to using the range.

Shooters will not bring loaded guns to the range which they intend to use on the range. CWP holders may have their concealed weapons on them but will not use them on the range unless they are unloaded prior to arriving at the range. An ammo point will be available to load magazines and speed loaders.

Guns will only be loaded on the firing line and will be shown “Clear” and holstered/benched before leaving the firing line. All firearms will be benched, cased, or holstered with slide locked to the rear and magazines out when moving about the range. Benched guns will have muzzle pointed down range with the ejection port/open cylinder facing up.

Only strong side holsters will be permitted-no cross draw, SOB, or other types of holsters which permit the muzzle to be pointed anywhere but down range when drawn.

Foothills Firearms Training Center has partnered with Jason Perkins of PSDefense to provide advanced firearms and tactical firearms training at our range.  Students who take the advanced classes also have free use of our Pistol Range.
