Garden City, Kan (WesternKansasNews.Com) -The Garden City Police Department would like to invite the public to the Grand Opening of the Indoor Shooting Range. The event will take place on June 18, 2022, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held at 9:00 a.m. at 2250 S. Old Highway 83.

Construction of the state-of-the-art facility was completed in April 2022 and is one of four projects included in the 2017 sales tax initiative that Finney County taxpayers voted to make possible in the community. The project has been a decade in the making and involved several partnerships, including the Garden City Police Department, the City of Garden City, Garden City Community College, and Sand and Sage Rifle and Pistol Club.


“It’s exciting to deliver the community another completed project from the November 2017 Sales Tax ballot issue approved by Finney County voters,” said City Manager Matt Allen. “There has been a tremendous amount of thought and effort put into the indoor gun range over the last decade, and it has produced a first-class facility in which our officers and community members can take pride.”

The new range provides public access to a safe facility to shoot firearms and for firearms training classes. The new range also delivers versatile tactical training for law enforcement and may also be used by other private and public entities.

“We are excited for the future of firearms training for law enforcement in Southwest
Kansas, and we’re happy to be partnering with such great organizations,” said Captain
Randy Ralston. “This project has been a long time waiting but worth the wait.”
