Trae and Julie created this range with Instructors in mind. We have been there and know what it is like to find a range to be able to really teach the good stuff at, and to try to make a successful business instructing.
Our goal is to provide a safe place for everyone to learn about firearms, shooting, and safety. We want everyone to have a positive experience, so we can help the 2A community and gun industry grow.
We want to be able to keep our rates affordable, so you can also have affordable rates.
Have any questions or need to submit paperwork?
Any for profit business or private enterprise that wishes to use the range facilities for organized firearm training activities whether it is receiving compensation from the trainees or not, must get approval from the Owners of Ares Training Facility (ATF) and meet the following conditions:
We don’t mind helping promote you and your classes. You can tag Ares on social media posts to reach a larger audience, and we will try to repost it. Send us the class information and links and we can add it to our calendar and website.
With our new Instructor Memberships and Self-Service Portal, instructors can reserve pocket berms online or with an app. You will be required to pay at the time of reserving. If you cancel 24 hours before, you will receive a credit on your account. This is subject to change.
The range is open Wednesday to Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm, and Sunday 10 am to 3 pm. These are the hours the range can be hot and shooting is allowed.
We are always closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and the first Sunday of every month.
Instructors can arrive 45 minutes prior to opening to set up for a class.
Range staff appreciates if you clean up quickly, because they like to leave as close to closing as possible.
We do not have low-light or night shooting hours.
