Founded during World War 2 in an effort to better train fighter pilots and aerial gunners, The Nellis Rod and Gun Club is located in Area 2 amidst a beautiful desert landscape overlooking the entire Las Vegas valley. The Club has 7 skeet ranges, 5 trap ranges and a patterning board for our shotgun shooters. The Club has three separate pistol ranges and a covered rifle range with targets set out to 1000 yards. The Gun Club also has an archery field and an axe-throwing field. At the clubhouse, we offer both indoor and outdoor seating as well as a covered patio with 10 picnic tables. Commonly used ammunition is available for purchase with no sales tax, and is usually the lowest price in town!
