The Pool International Range Complex was originally built in 1983 to meet the needs of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit’s International teams. The range was dedicated on April 8, 1994, in honor of late U.S. Army (Ret.) Lieutenant Colonel Tommy G. Pool. He was a former Olympic Bronze Medal winner who served with the USAMU for more than two decades as a shooter and civilian.
The complex features state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor ranges for training and competition at 10, 50, 100 and 300 meters. The range has been host to numerous local, regional, collegiate, national and international competitions, including the 2010 World Cup USA, the 2012 and 2008 Olympic trials as well as the 2011 NCAA Rifle National Championships hosted by Columbus State University. In addition to a 50-point, 300 meter indoor/outdoor range, Pool Range features 80 indoor/outdoor firing points at 50 meters and an indoor range with 20 points at 50 meters. Other indoor facilities include 63 airgun firing points at 10 meters. The range was outfitted with an electronic scoring system in 2006, and in 2010 new lighting was wired in the indoor portion of the range.
