Range provides new training facility for local law enforcement
Neel-Schaffer provided civil site design services for the construction of a small arms firing range that is now used by the City of Columbus police department, Lowndes County, Airmen at nearby Columbus Air Force Base, and other local law enforcement departments for weapons qualifications and training.
The range includes a 14-lane, 25-yard outdoors pistol range that has a covered area for shooters. The range features multiple shooting locations and distances, is pneumatic target ready, has LED flash lighting (for night time and war simulation practice), and includes a bullet collection backstop.
It also includes an open-air 100-yard rifle range for ground combat practice and general public rifle sighting. The entire facility is fenced in with wind screen mesh for security and includes a 12- to 20-foot berm for safety and bullet entrapment.
PryorMorrow Architects also designed a state-of-the art training facility that includes an indoor instruction watch room, training rooms, restrooms, breakrooms, and office/administrative space.
