Liberty University to build on-campus shooting range

LYNCHBURG, VA (WFXB) – Liberty University could become the first college to have an NRA and NCAA certified outdoor shooting range on campus.

The university is looking into plans to build a shooting range on its land in Campbell County, Virginia. The outdoor space would include a pistol range, a rifle range, an instructional area, and a three-gun competition range.

There would also be future plans for an indoor firing range. Liberty’s gun range would be open to the public, but it would be geared towards its students. Officials will decide whether to grant Liberty University the special use permit on January 3rd.
