Range

The shooting range is currently CLOSED for relocation until further notice.

The Orange Beach Police Department shooting range was formerly located at 4500 William Silvers Parkway. The range was available to the public every other Saturday, 9am-12pm, weather permitting, and whether or not any scheduled police training was taking place. The department made every effort to have the range available to the public.  Anytime the range was open, a certified firearms instructor/RSO was on duty.  

The former range was a pistol/handgun range only. The maximum shooting distance was 10 yards.
