roject S.A.F.E. - Ole Mill Range Complex

General Info

The Ole Mill Range Complex is conveniently located across from the Griffin UPS sorting facility at 129 North Searcy Avenue (on the corner of Broadway St and North Searcy Avenue), 8/10 of a mile east of Akins Feed and Seed in Griffin, GA.

Ole Mill Range logoThe Ole Mill Range Complex, a 52-Position 10-meter (10 m) airgun range, provides opportunities for young athletes to compete and prepare for national level competition, collegiate scholarships and Olympic aspirations.

Construction of 14 positions for dual use in air rifle and (10 m), 50 foot smallbore as well as the 10 individual (50 m) lanes will bring the facility into only a handful of such facilities in the entire nation. We also have 6 air pistol firing points with target retrieval and carriers.

The 10 m range conforms to International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) specifications for target height and distance, and features individual target lighting that conforms to ISSF specifications for range illumination.

The range facility operates with similar safety rules and procedures as other competition firearms ranges. Airguns are required to be cased and uncased at the firing-line only.
