Important info about Range 3

Due to the LED lights on the front of these target frames, a qualification process is required before shooting on Range 3. Customers must have one of the following credentials:

  • Have an NRA pistol classification card (Marksman through High Master) -OR-
  • Fire 10 shots at 25 (or 50) yards on paper targets, keeping all 10 shots inside of the scoring rings on standard NRA targets

This qualification will only be required once in order to shoot on Range 3. 

If you hit the frame while shooting on Range 3, you will be given a warning. If you hit the frame a 2nd time, you will be disqualified from shooting on Range 3 for the remainder of the day. Several disqualifications from Range 3 will lead to a renewal of the qualification process.

Range 3 fees are $12.50 per person for 1 hour, or $30 per person for an entire day. 

Range 3 will be opened by reservation only. Please contact the Talladega Marksmanship Park at (256) 474-4408, ext. 460 or 461. 

History of Talladega Marksmanship Park

The CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park provides marksmen with a state-of-the-art facility where they can participate in the complete CMP experience, including firearm safety courses, clinics and a lineup of CMP Games and Match events. Plans were approved in March 2012 by the CMP Board of Directors. 

The centerpiece of the park is a versatile highpower rifle range with 54 covered firing points and all-weather Kongsberg Target Systems electronically-scored targetry at 200, 300, and 600 yards. The versatile target faces, made of a rubberized material, have the ability to be reused thousands of times – meaning no need to paste new faces between relays in the pits. In fact, there will be NO pit duty required at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park, dramatically cutting down the time typically demanded by a single match.

The park also features a 100-yard rifle range and 25 & 50-yard pistol ranges with the same technology, plus an unknown distance rifle range. Monitors on each firing point display shots on the firing line. There is no pit duty or walking to targets to view shots.

Additionally, the park has 15 action pistol bays that can accommodate a variety of competitions. Shotgunners will enjoy a 15-station sporting clays loop, trap field, 5 skeet fields and a 5 stand field. All of these features allow recreational users more productive time at our facility, and reward match competitors with a more efficient and relaxed experience. 

While at CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park, visitors can enroll in classes, purchase firearms accessories, observe range activities via the closed circuit monitors, or just relax in a safe, comfortable environment at our range clubhouse: The crown jewel of the park! The 13,000 square foot clubhouse features a check-in & reception area, two multimedia classrooms, spacious lounge areas and a CMP Pro Shop with firearms, accessories & ammunition sales.
