The Clark County Shooting Complex, located on the northern outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada, is the largest shooting facility in the United States.[1] The 2,900 acres (1,200 ha) park is being built in stages by Clark County, Nevada.[2] At full build out is anticipated that only 900 acres (360 ha) will be developed with the rest of the site serving as a buffer for the surrounding community. The park is located at the northern end of Decatur Blvd in unincorporated Clark County, just north of the City of Las Vegas boundary.[3]

History[edit]

Planning for the park started in 1984.[2] With construction starting in January 2008.[4] The first phase on 148 acres (60 ha) is being built at a projected cost of $64 million.[2][4][5] The park was dedicated on August 25, 2009 and had a soft opening on December 12, 2009 with limited hours and days of operation. The park fully opened in 2010. The park is normally open Wednesday and Thursdays 8:00Am to 10:00PM, and Friday through Sunday 8:00 AM to 5:00PM
