Shooting ranges provide you with a safe place to shoot your firearm when you follow the rules for shooting a particular firearm safely.
- These ranges are designed to trap and contain rounds properly shot at targets.
- The Missouri Department of Conservation has firearm and archery ranges located around the state, and most are free to use. Numerous commercial and community ranges are available also.
- When planning to shoot at a department range, be aware of the following.
- These ranges are bull’s-eye target ranges built primarily to support hunter sighting-in, hunter proficiency, and traditional sport shooting.
- Due to the design of these ranges, rapid or automatic firing is not allowed.
- Cartridges must be less than a .50-caliber BMG.
- No tracer, incendiary, armor-piercing, exploding, or other high-penetration or fire-producing projectiles may be fired.
