Range Action Specialists

NSSF’s Consulting Program for Ranges

The purpose of the Range Action Specialists (RAS) program is to:

  • Assist NSSF members with existing challenges
  • Encourage shooting ranges to become more proactive with Best Management Practices
  • Provide financial support
  • Promote, protect and preserve the shooting range community
  • Provide professional guidance to individuals while in the process of range development


Increased operating costs, new environmental regulations, land encroachment, neighborhood complaints and growing litigation concerns are making it hard for shooting ranges to stay open. Although many ranges approach these challenges on their own, not going it alone is a much easier and effective way. The Range Action Specialists can help you.

Educate Yourself and Become Proactive

Turn to experienced professionals who can educate you with best management practices. This will help protect your range for generations to come. Being proactive is much better than being reactive. We must face the fact: perception is reality once the spotlight shines on you. NSSF wants to turn that light off. However, it needs to be a team effort.

Financial Support

We know the cost of hiring experienced professionals to assess your range needs can be expensive. That is why NSSF is providing financial assistance. Although NSSF will provide financial assistance, shooting ranges need to have a stake in the task.  NSSF will cover the consultants travel expenses and will potentially provide between $1500 to $2500 of financial support to offset the cost of the completed tasks.

Promote, Protect, Preserve

NSSF is on a mission to promote, protect and preserve recreational shooting facilities by providing tools to strengthen ranges. Together, we can change the perception of the shooting-range community by improving range management as a whole.

Professional Guidance

Consulting with successful range owners and other shooting-range consultants will lessen the load. Their experiences will help to steer you in the right direction.
