Shooting Range

 

a sports facility for shooting at targets with handguns or air guns for practice or competition. A shooting range consists of a gallery with a firing line, a firing zone measuring as long as the shooting distance, targets (usually mechanized), and an ammunition receptacle, as well as auxiliary rooms, service rooms, classrooms, and storage space for guns and cartridges. Depending on the size of the shooting range, shooting is allowed at distances of 10–300 m. The shooting range may be indoors, outdoors, or partially enclosed.

A complex of outdoor shooting ranges is called a sports shooting ground. Shooting stadiums, complexes of indoor and outdoor shooting ranges with specially equipped administration buildings and lodgings, are used for major competitions and championships.

Public recreation areas often have ranges for shooting with air guns and small-bore rifles.
