The Range at Carolina Barrel and Blade is a marriage of cutting edge technology and old fashioned ingenuity. We are a member’s only facility that consists of two 7 yard CQC training lanes and a dedicated virtual/interactive shoot room.
All of our shooting areas utilize vulcanized ballistic rubber and steel bullet traps and baffles. The ballistic rubber and steel system guarantees a 540 degree ballistically secure zone that is impervious to back splatter or ricochet. Our range is arguably the safest place in Carolinas to shoot!
While the design and purpose is for training the armed professional, competitive shooter, and armed citizens, members may and are encouraged to shoot recreationally. Distance can be simulated through use of the virtual shooting system or reduction of target sizes.
Using the virtual system you can train up close CQC situations or simulate a one mile plus shot. As well we have the capability to upload your video and insert threats. Naturally there are restrictions and some video can only be utilized by law enforcement and military personnel.
