The website for the range is not live yet, http://www.fortcarson.isportsman.net, and I can't find anything that says it is open in a quick google search but I will keep looking. Perhaps if it is open I will try and swing by this weekend.

I currently belong to Whistling Pines, and Ben Lomond (which is 50 miles from my house).

I also go to Dragonman's sometimes, or to the National Forest near Woodland Park ... off of Rampart Range road.

Right now, I'm waiting for the hysteria to end (if it ever does). I like to keep in practice with my Ruger 9mm P95. But not willing to give up any more ammo.

Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex is supposed to open on 1-23-13. They are supposed to have their own office too. Will update on that day after I find out if they are really open.

I saw that on the news, and got an email from DOW.

Thanks for keeping us updated!

They have a website. Also I called and talked to the facility manager. Onn the 23rd, there will be a ribbon shooting invitation only from 11:00am till 1:00pm. At 1:30pm they will open for public with free shooting from 1:30pm-4:00pm that day. Manager sounds very friendly and willing to help others.
Hope to see you there,
Roger

Default 9mm ammo at the WalMart in Fountain

I was in the Walmart in Fountain this morning. --- Monday, 2/4/13

They had about 20 or 30 boxes of Federal 9mm 115 grain ammo.

I could only buy 3 boxes.

Thought someone might like to know. The lady said they'd been there for days.

Default The New Range. Nice.

I went to the new range outside of Fort Carson's gate 20.

It was really nice for a gun range, and not at all crowded on a Tuesday morning.
