The Royal Range
Nashville, TN. A movie theater cleverly transformed into indoor shooting ranges and classrooms. https://www.royalrangeusa.com/
* (Remember the Royal Range looks closed that early in the morning. Approach the front "wall" on the left side. Make a hard, fast turn right behind that thin front wall and you'll see the actual glass store front. Enter through the reguar front doors.
- 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m. to 4.p.m. on Sunday. Arrive at 8:30 a.m. to get ready.
- $250 for two days.
- $150 for any one day.
- $150 2-Day Discount for U.K., Europeans and Australians. You are flying over. It is expensive enough, so we offer this discount. Use the $125 option to preregister and pay the remaining $25 at the door. Or, just pay $150 at the door. Thanks for coming over! You won't regret it.
- $125 Preregistration. Space will be limited. Reserve your spot, but be advised if you can't come you will lose this because you will be depriving a slot for someone else!

(Please, all MUST be officially with you. ALL MUST be travelers, needing to stay in a hotel. No "sandbagging." If at least 6 do not show? Then, the tuition returns to individual attendance of $250 per person.) Group discount is paid at the door, via headcount at sign in.
- Come early and stay late, and visit Nashville!
- Come early and stay late and shoot pistols and long guns (like the Barrett .50 Cal sniper rifle.) Contact me for any special, customized firearms course you might want for Saturday night. Gun rentals, ammo and special instructors on Saturday night courses will cost extra. They are run by RR's military and police veteran staff.
- Popular resturants and affordable hotels right acress the highway. Look up hotels (like the Avery-Sleep Inn) in Bellevue, TN - (the actual suburb name of Nashville.) There are three hotels right across the highway from the RR. Other Nashville area hotels are minutes away.
- We have some training equipment for you to loan but you must bring all your gear too if you can!
