The Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex (CMSC) is a joint project between the U.S. Army, El Paso County, the El Paso County Sheriff, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service. The 400-acre site sits on Army land near Interstate 25 just off mile marker 132. The entrance is located just outside Fort Carson’s Gate 20 security perimeter. Shooters using the range will not have to enter Fort Carson to use the range.

The Range Complex includes 120 shooting positions across seven ranges. One range is designated as a Law Enforcement Range and will be available to the public only on weekends. One range is a combination rifle and pistol range. Two ranges are designated specifically for rifles and allow for firing points between 100 and 600 yards. Two ranges are designed specifically for pistols and allow for firing points up to 50 yards. One range is designated as an instructional range.

The second phase of the project will include the construction of two skeet and trap ranges in the near term with an additional three ranges planned in the future as well as a club house. The club house will include a retail store, classrooms and offices. Completion of the project will occur during third phase with the addition of a restaurant.
