Test Course – Rifle Zero

Course Information

The Rifle Zero course is intended for every level of shooter experience. Whether you are a seasoned shooter in need of a good spotter, first-time rifle owner, or just having difficulty with a particular grain weight or caliber, our instructor will guide you through the zero so you are ready for that next course or hunt. The time allotted for this course is 1-3 hours held completely at the Tucson Rifle Club on a reserved 100 meter range.

The Three Points Range is located about 25 miles West of downtown Tucson, Arizona on U.S. Route 86 (Ajo Way). The entrance to the range is on the north side of the roadway, about 2.5 miles West of Robles Junction (Three Points) just past Mile Post 148.
