Located in the heart of Placerville, the Hangtown Range offers a blend of history, expertise, and modern facilities catering to both firearms and archery enthusiasts. Once an abandoned tire store on Broadway, Hangtown Range has transformed into a state-of-the-art concealed carry training facility & indoor archery/firearm range, serving the community with dedication and passion.

Background: The range’s inception can be traced back to the vision of Richard Rood, a dedicated serviceman during the Korean War era. His life journey, from a mechanical contracting company owner in Santa Clara to retiring in Swansboro, eventually led him to establish the Mosquito Creek Outfitters. Recognizing a community need for a space to practice shooting sports, Hangtown Range was born in 2018.
