Celebrate the 4th, our nation's independence day, with a day of fun at the Family Shooting Center - Denver's closest outdoor shooting range in Cherry Creek State Park, offering Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun and archery ranges for public use.  We offer rentals and instruction in all firearms.

On the 4th, the Family Shooting Center will offer a brand new crisp $2 bill rebate for all adult/military/law enforcement paid range fees or the purchase of 3 rounds of trap (one bill per customer).  The back of the bill pictures when it all started in Philadelphia with the signing of the Declaration by the Second Continental Congress.

Our Top Dog food vendor will be offering a special on Rocky Mountain Oysters.  Deep fried with Greg's special sauce, this dish is a culinary delight!

Come on out and enjoy a day at the range.  Entry to the range is best from the West entrance at the Union, Dayton, and Dam road intersection.  Use the West entrance as the State usually closes entry to the Park when the swim beach parking lot is full.  For more details, call the range office at 303-680-5401.

July 1, 2013 Impact of new Colorado Restrictive Gun Laws

The Family Shooting Center at Cherry Creek State Park wants you to know that the new firearms laws going into effect on July 1 do not impact our range operations.  You may bring any of your firearms to the range to shoot, following our normal range rules.  As well, you may rent any of our rifles, pistols and shotguns as you have always been able to do.  The Family Shooting Center is proud to stand with the County Sheriffs of Colorado in their battle for your Constitutional rights. 

Visit Sheriffs’ Lawsuit page for further information.

54 Colorado County Sheriffs vs Governor John Hickenlooper

The Family Shooting Center at Cherry Creek State Park is proud to announce that we stand with the County Sheriffs of Colorado in their legal actions against Governor John Hickenlooper.  The Family Shooting Center is a named Plaintiff in the Sheriffs' complaint filed in United States District Court on May 17th.  Together, 24 business entities, individuals and 54 Colorado County Sheriffs are standing firm in the defense of the United States Constitution and against the outrageous abuse of power and poor judgment demonstrated by State Legislators and the office of the Governor in the last legislative session.
