About Blackstone’s Gun Range

Blackstone Shooting Sports is the largest indoor shooting range in the Carolinas and one of the country’s premier indoor gun ranges.  Blackstone features 27 well-lit, state-of-the-art shooting lanes, including a 9-lane tactical training bay designed for advanced law enforcement and civiliant training.  Each of the lanes at Blackstone is 25 yards long and can handle handguns, shotguns, and rifles up to 300 Winchester Magnum in caliber!

Our programmable target system was designed by Action Target and Mancom, the industry leaders in shooting range equipment.  Just punch in the distance for your target and hit GO!  Our tacical range also features turning targets, a great way to test the abilities of shooters of all skill levels.

All of our lanes are equipped with Action Target’s steel Total Containment Trap, baffling system, and clear-view bulletproof glass shooting stalls. The heated and air-conditioned range features a state-of-the-art ventilation system that provides clean air at a constant 68 degrees. With a slight breeze at your back, our system moves air down-range at a carefully monitored rate of 75 cubic-feet-per-minute in order to minimize lead exposure and to ensure that those at the firing line will always breath fresh, clean air.

Our range is open to members and the public ever day.

I am new and have never even held a gun. Can I go to the range?

Absolutely! Our talented and professional range team can assess your skill level and give support – if you aren’t sure about something, don’t be afraid to ask, that’s what we are here for!

When you visit the range for the first time, just head straight back towards the sign that says “Blackstone Range.” To your left, you will see a bunch of iPads and a TV. Please watch the safety video and complete the waiver. Once you have done that, head over to the range desk and our team will get you everything you need! All you need to bring is a government-issued photo ID and your excitement – we can rent or sell you everything else.

Once you are on the range, you will notice our safety officers out there in the red polo shirts. If you have any questions or concerns, they are there to help.

I don't have any equipment. Do you have ammunition, targets, and other equipment available for purchase? What about rental firearms?

Yes! We have everything you need for a fun, exciting range experience. Ammo, cleaning equipment, target, hearing protection. We also carry over 1,000 firearms and other great accessories in our 6,000 square foot retail store. If you desire anything we don’t carry, please let us know – we will find it for you!

Is there a minimum age to use the range?

Minors are the future of our sport and are more than welcome on the range. Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied and supervised by their parent or legal guardian.

Guests must be at least 18 years old to rent long guns.

Guests must be at least 21 years old to rent handguns.

Guests must be at least 18 years old to purchase long gun ammunition.

Guests must be at least 21 years old to purchase handgun ammunition, with one exception: if a guest is under 21 (and over 18) but brings their own handgun to the range, he or she may purchase handgun ammunition for use on the range. In such a case, all handgun ammunition must be used in its entirety on the range as guest is prohibited by federal law from removing any leftover handgun ammunition from the premises.

Are women welcome on the range?

YES!!! Women are not only warmly welcomed but are the fastest growing segment of our industry. Approximately 25% of shooters nationwide are women and the figure is growing exponentially. At Blackstone, 45% of our shooters are women! Shooting accurately is related to calmness, focus, and precision – which is why women are often times better natural shots than men!

Does your facility support physically handicapped shooters?

Our facility, including the range, was designed for wheelchair accessibility. If you have special needs, please call ahead and we will do our best to accommodate.

Can I bring my own ammunition to the range?

You are welcome to bring your own ammunition to Blackstone at no additional charge. To protect our facility & equipment, we have a few guidelines we ask our guests to follow. Only lead core bullets are permitted on the range. Steel core, incendiary, tracer, exploding or tipped ammo of any kind is prohibited from the facility. To determine whether or not your ammunition is permitted on the range, simply hold a magnet to the side of the bullet – if it does not stick, your ammo is fine for use at Blackstone.

With respect to shotguns, we permit the use of slugs (which we have available for sale) and double-ought or larger buckshot.

Can I use my own ammunition with a rental gun?

For the safety of our guests and our staff, ammunition for any rental firearm must be purchased from Blackstone at the time the firearm is rented.

What types and calibers of firearms are permitted on the range?

Our range is constructed out of AR-500 bulletproof steel and can handle a lot of abuse. You are welcome to shoot handguns of any caliber, shotguns (slugs or buckshot only please), and rifles up to 300 Winchester Magnum (including that AR-15 you have been wanting to shoot)!

Black powder firearms are not permitted on the range.

How long are the lanes?

All 27 of our lanes are 25 yards long. Our high-tech target retrievers make it possible to send your target to very precise distances.

What type of target retrieval system do you use?

Our system was designed by Action Target and Mancom and is the most elite system available on the market. All of our target retrieval systems feature a digital display that can send the targets down-range in precise one-yard increments. The target system on our tactical range is interactive and can run, rush, and turn 360 degrees, forcing you to hone your skills in order to make effective split-second decisions.
