Abilene Gun Club and the Community

Abilene Gun Club is listed on the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau Website. Various competitions at our range draw participants from Dallas, Ft. Worth, Midland, Odessa as well as the surrounding areas, often these visitors contribute to our communities economic growth by spending their dollars in our local businesses including restaurants and motels. The Abilene Gun Club has also served as host site for some of the Reunion Activities of the 12Th Armored Division.

The Abilene Gun Club has existed in its current location for over fifty years. The club was founded in the late 1940's after WWII. During this time we have made our facility available to the Abilene Police Department prior to the construction of their nearby facility. The local prison system uses our facility in order to qualify their officers. Dyess Airforce Base security personnel use various rifle and pistol set ups in order to gain additional practice time and training. The club grounds are also utilized by several concealed handgun instructors and these instructors have qualified in excess of 2000 license holders at our facility.
