ProTEQ Firearms Academy


We started excavation on the Combat Arts Range (C.A.R.) in late 2011.  It was initially used for CAS match events, but soon evolved to a Performance Center Concept where Classes were taught and abilities honed in Defensive Skills.   7 berm excavations are cut into a Shaded Hillside along a Level walking path at the valleys North edge.   These berms provide variable scenario capabilities that can be modified to fit complex training scenarios.  A 48 car parking lot is located 50 yards to the East, another parking lot is being added to the West.    Reinforced Rail Road Ties line the sides of several berms.  In 2017 a wide array of steel reactive targets were purchased.
