We were given a tour of Gunsite firearms training facility, just west of Paulden, Arizona, about twenty miles north of Prescott
Gunsite was founded in 1976 by Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper, author, columnist, professor, WW II and Korean War combat veteran. Col. Cooper intended Gunsite to be the vehicle for spreading the Modern Technique of the Pistol, which he created
Gunsites operation covers 2000 acres, with modern facilities, large classrooms, a fully stocked Pro Shop and a full-service gunsmith operation for clients only.
Gunsite has a variety of different ranges purpose-built for our class offerings, including outdoor and indoor simulators, a 400 yard KD rifle range, an unknown distance range, and various steel ranges for specific purposes. Most of the target arrays move, turn, run, pop-up or appear and disappear.
