The Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex is a joint project between the U.S. Army, El Paso County, the El Paso County Sheriff and the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife. The 400 acre site sits on Army land near Interstate 25 just off mile marker 132. The entrance is located just outside Fort Carson’s Gate 20 security perimeter. Shooters using the range will not have to enter Fort Carson to use the range.

The Range Complex is a three (3) phase project. During phase one (1), seven (7) shooting ranges are being constructed with more than ninety (90) shooting stations and two (2) additional ranges with thirty (30) firing points extending 50 yards – designed for pistols. Shooters will check/set and retrieve targets. Three (3) ranges will be designated for rifles with distances between 100-600 yards.

The second phase of the project will include the construction of five (5) skeet & trap ranges and a club house. The club house will include a retail store, classrooms and offices. Completion of the project will occur during third phase with the addition of a restaurant.
