The LRP now has a shooting shelter!
Final construction was completed on November 17th. The 3200 sq. ft. shelter is enclosed on three sides and also has a fully enclosed office. The shelter provides protection from the sun, wind (and occasional rain).
The LRP shelter provides 8 shooting benches and can also accommodate shooters who wish to fire from a prone position.
The new shelter also houses the LRP range office, where shooters can purchase eye and ear protection and rent shooting resets, bags and spotting scopes. Chronograph service is also available at this office.
The Long Range Precision range is open every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, except when reserved for special events. Please check the Calendar of Events if you are planning on making reservations for the LRP. Remember, reservations on the LRP must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance, but not more than 1 month in advance. Call the range office at (970) 464-1339 to make a reservation.
The LRP is also available for private reservations on non-public days. Private reservations must be made at least 1 week in advance, but not more than 2 months in advance. Call the range office at (970) 464-1339 to make a reservation.
Periodically the LRP may be closed for special events.
The Long Range Precision Range (LRP) provides a series of 35 steel targets ranging from 100 yards all the way out to 2003 yards. Targets at distances over 400 yards have electronic sensors that flash brightly for several seconds when the target is hit, and are easily visible over the entire length of the range, even in bright daylight.
Here is a video of a hit on the 1,000-yard 48″x48″ steel target, showing the flasher system in operation:
This aerial drone video shows a sequence of hits (and misses) on the 1,000-yard target.
The LRP terrain is complex, encompassing canyons and rolling hills, giving rise to sometimes challenging wind conditions. Wind flags are present every 500 yards down the range to aid the shooter in gauging the wind.

Here is a handy sheet to print out with the map and a target table listing the ranges and GPS coordinates of all the targets: LRP Targets & Table

The Long Range Precision Range hosts a variety of competitive events, including the monthly LRP Jackpot Games
To minimize road damage, 4-wheel drive should be used (if equipped) on the access road up to the LRP (UTV’s are available for rent at the range office). The road is fairly steep in places.
Long Ranger Club
To celebrate the long-range and extreme long-range achievements of our shooters we have instituted the Long Ranger Club. Shooters achieving hits on select targets that are witnessed by a CSEC RSO or CSEC staff will be awarded a certificate as follows:
- Gold – 2,000 yards
- Silver – 1,760 yards (one mile)
- Bronze – 1,000 yards
In addition, their achievement will be recorded and listed on the Long Ranger Club page for bragging rights.
