Bill Rogers, a legend in the shooting community, created the venerable Rogers Range along with his cutting edge reactive shooting school decades ago. This incredible training, once reserved for tip of the spear special operations forces is now available to law enforcement and responsible armed citizens alike.
We are honored to have earned the privilege to be a part of the instructor cadre at Rogers Range Texas, which is but one of the many ranges within the 2300 acre Mission Critical training ranch in Gatesville TX (near Fort Hood in Killeen).
The traditional Rogers training course is four days, beginning on a Thursday morning. Though not as in-depth, a two day abbreviated weekend version is offered as well. The two day course fee is $550 and the four day is $1075.
The Mission Critical training ranch is west of Fort Hood / Killeen TX. It is a privately owned and operated facility which is not open to the public. There are no day shooters, range passes or range members. The address will remain undisclosed until payment for your course is received. Directions to the ranch and the gate access code will be provided prior to your arrival.
The course begins each day with a mandatory pre-live fire briefing at 7:30 a.m.
The range goes hot at 8:00 a.m. We will take a quick lunch break on the range around noon. Training wraps up between 3:00 and 4:00 daily.
Rogers Range training is not an introductory or beginners handgun course.
