Facility Rules

The BVSA Shooting Range is at the end of a scenic drive towards the end of Deertrail Dr. It includes a pistol range, a rifle range, and a trap range.  The pistol & rifle ranges have a covered & fenced shooting area and targets at various distances.  The rifle range has 10 stalls available as well as convenient bench rest & seating.

Reservations are made at the Whiting Center at least 24 hours prior to visit. Prior to using the range, all shooters must complete a short quiz, sign the release of liability form & all other acknowledgement forms at the Whiting Center prior to their appointment at the range. Prior to being authorized to shoot, all firearms & ammunition will be inspected by Range Staff. 

Hours are subject to change based on weather and range may be closed in the event of a “fire weather watch” or “red flag warning.”

Summer Closure Announcement - June 16, 2021:

Due to severe drought conditions, the BVS Gun Range will be CLOSED for fire season, beginning IMMEDIATELY. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, the Tehachapi area and 95% of Kern County are rated at “D4 exceptional drought”, which is the most severe drought category. Daily temps at the Gun Range are regularly reaching 100+ degrees, with low humidity and breezy conditions. Other reasons compound the need to close the range, but the main issue is extreme fire danger. The BVS Gun Range will re-open in the fall months when we start to see precipitation again, and when the daily temps begin to drop. We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope you have a safe summer!
