Directions to the Outdoor Shooting Range

Frontline Defense Firearms Training Center and Range, LLC, 1060 Ernest Turner Rd, Warrenton, NC 27589
Attention Shooters: The gun range is located off of HWY 58 N in Warrenton, NC. Turn right on Ernest Turner Road, go 2.5 miles. When the hard top road surface ends and the gravel road starts go 1 mile more, the range is on the right.


The outdoor shooting range is open to the public on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Members only have full access to the firearm shooting range Monday through Sunday. Please see our calendar for upcoming firearm training classes and competitive shooting matches. Anyone can participate in training classes and competitive shooting matches — you do not have to be a member of the range. Cash only for hourly shooting for Guests and Visitors.

Wake, Durham, Franklin, Nash, Wilson, Johnston, Halifax, North Hampton, Granville, and Vance are just some of the many counties in North Carolina that make up our gun range membership list. We also have members from South Carolina and Virgina.

The 1,000 yd rifle range is open!

Frontline Defense is growing at an amazing rate. The newest addition is our second 1000 yard range and numerous shooting lanes from 300yds to 600yds for long range precision rifle training and our Absolute Zero Sniper Matches. Click here to learn more.

New! 300-yard Rifle Range Open to Public

We’re opening our 300-yard rifle range to the public! Frontline Defense provides all steel targets, no paper targets allowed on the 300-yard rifle range.

We’ve Got You Covered

Our pistol, 100-yard,300-yard and 1,000-yard rifle ranges are covered, so you can shoot rain or shine. The 1,000yd rifle range is for qualified range members only.


We provide all target stands free of charge. You can bring your own targets or purchase them from us. Steel is available on the pistol/rifle range free of charge.


Range Safety

We are a cold range — which means no magazines are allowed in any firearm unless you are on the firing line and firearm remains unloaded unless otherwise instructed. All firearms in transit from your vehicle to and from the firing line must be in a holster or firearms range bag/case. All firearms are to remain unloaded unless you are on the firing line. You may reload your conceal carry firearm after you leave our property. If it is your first time at Frontline Defense Firearms Training Center and Range, you will be given a safety briefing during check-in.

Note — No XM193, XP193, X-TAC, M855, Steel Tip, Armor Piercing or Tracers on steel targets. They travel more than 3,000 fps and dimple the steel plates. Paper targets all ammo allowed.

We welcome shooters of all ages! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Parents/guardians are responsible for ensuring their children observe all range safety policies. Children must have hearing and eye protection while at the range, even if they are not shooting.

We’re Open On Weekends!

The range is OPEN on weekends during competitions and training. We built the 300-yard tactical area specifically for competitive use, so the 25-yard pistol area and the 100-yard range remain open for use to members and the public on weekends unless otherwise posted. So come on out and shoot!
