THE COWTOWN RANGE STORY
LET US TELL YOU A TALE
If you’re game to get some desert dust on your boots and get a whiff of what’s left of the Old West, then come to Cowtown. This storied facility was originally built in 1973 by Hollywood stuntman, Ron Nix, as a movie studio and general entertainment and shooting facility. More than 200 movies and television episodes have been made at Cowtown, including Knight Rider 2010, Billy Jack, and Dead Man (starring Johnny Depp).
Some of the country’s best shooters have called Cowtown home over the years. It’s the venue of choice for western shooting clubs, competitions, and festivals, as well as Cowboy Action shooters in the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS).
The precision shooting curriculum, other specialized training and unique facility are also valued by elite special operations units and law enforcement.
Cowtown Range is owned, managed and operated exclusively by retired and active U.S. military service members and law enforcement professionals.
No static point and shoot here. Get experience with night shooting, high-angle shooting, vehicle-based shooting, movement to contact training, and more.
Off grid, but still accessible. Our isolated, hilly, high desert terrain is just 30 minutes from downtown Scottsdale and Phoenix, but closely resembles Afghanistan.
PRIVATE & EXCLUSIVE
Our members-only facility is open to civilian shooters, government agencies, commercial training companies, security companies, R&D firms, and firearms manufacturers.
THE BEST COURSES
Group and individual training courses for all levels. Have fun and be safe improving your skills and learning new ones with our expert instructors.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Best place in the Phoenix area to shoot, no matter what kind of shooter you are.
I have been a member for two years and couldn’t be happier with the facility, R/Os and other members I have been lucky enough to run into there. Wednesday night steel is a blast. I bring a bunch of friends out every chance we get.
Cowtown has a great & versatile variety of ranges, offering an opportunity to pick up & hone skills in a safe outdoor setting. Highly recommended!
