One wouldn’t expect to find one of America’s best police training facilities in a tiny town of 22,000, serving a police department of 40 officers. One also might be surprised to learn this training facility consists of not just a pistol range, but also a 330-yard rifle range, a huge live-fire shoot house, demolitions range, facilities for quick-mounting real doors onto dedicated frames for breaching, a to-spec simulated airliner fuselage, and even space for a helicopter LZ. One might not know that some of the world’s best tactical trainers make frequent use of this amazing facility in this otherwise-unknown town. And one might be shocked — as we were — to discover this police training facility is also open to private civilians.
