- Rifle & Pistol Range
Rifle & Pistol Range (Range 15)
Do you enjoy shooting but have a hard time finding a relaxing, safe and legal place to let a few fly? Check out Range 15, a safe and fun place to spend time perfecting your marksmanship, teach a youngster the finer points of the sport or just spend an afternoon plinking away.
Pistol shooters can take advantage of our 10- and 20-yard berms, while rifle shooters can shoot at targets all the way out to 300 yards. All shooters are invited to try action targets, which are avialable upon request starting at 100 yards.
Along with the shooting line, there's an onsite shop, where you can pick up cleaning supplies, ammunition or a soda and chips.
Gun caliber restriction: Magnum rifle calibers are no longer authorized/allowed on Range 15.
The cost is $10 for DOD ID cardholders and $13 for non-DOD ID cardholders.

Washington state laws regarding the transfer of firearms have significantly changed.
The JBLM Outdoor Recreation Program is a federally licensed dealer but can no longer directly process NICS checks for handguns and semiautomatic assault rifles. Instead, ODR will submit NICS check requests to the county in which patrons reside. With this new law, you should expect a response on or about 10 days from the date your request is received (if your transaction is placed on a 30-day hold, your response will be delayed to on or about the 30th day). Further, the above additional background checks are now required on transfers of semiautomatic assault rifles, frames and receivers. Additionally, for transfers on semiautomatic rifles, proof of a safety course is now required.
All privately owned weapons must be registered on base before bringing them onto the installation. Please visit DES's weapons registration page to complete registration prior to visiting the ranges.
