Can’t make the Tea Party, Senator Reid will be here.

Rifle, Pistol, Target Shooting and Archery Open Full-Time

Clark County commissioners and Congressional representatives will celebrate the grand opening ceremony for the Clark County Shooting Park on Saturday, March 27 at 10:30 a.m.

County Commission Chairman Rory Reid, Commissioner Tom Collins, in whose district the park is located, U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, U.S. Senator John Ensign, Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, Congresswoman Dina Titus, Congressman Dean Heller, State Sen. John Lee and Wayne LaPierre, CEO & Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association Board of Directors will officially open the park located at 11357 N. Decatur Blvd. The park is funded with grants from the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act, which uses money from the sale of public lands to pay for parks, trails and natural areas within the county.

The facility, located in the far Northwest, is the result of citizen requests for a safe public facility for gun owners to practice safe shooting. The 148-acre first phase is now open Wednesdays through Sundays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and features 24 combination trap and skeet fields with a pro shop and cafeteria; an archery range and building with a 30-seat classroom and restrooms; a public rifle and pistol range with a pro shop and convenience store; and a hunter education center with a 90-seat classroom with archery, rifle, pistol and shotgun ranges and a simulated hunting course. The site also has a shotgun center with 80 spaces for recreational vehicles. A separate host area will house safety officers on-site.

The facility partially opened on weekends in December and recently opened its doors full-time, drawing recreational and competitive shooters from around the County and throughout the U.S.
