Originally called The Cochise Gun Club of Tombstone, it was established in 1960 in Tombstone. The shooting range was located down the hill from the Lookout Lodge and consisted of three designated ranges.
In 1992, the club joined the Sierra Vista Rod & Gun Club and the Montezuma Muzzleloaders to build the Sierra Vista Shooting Range at mile marker 334 on Highway 90 . Volunteers loaded the shooting stands and bench rests and moved them to the new range.
The club has 279 members and sponsors these monthly activities - Junior Rifle Shoot, Trap, Skeet, 5-Stand Shotgun, Pig Rifle, and International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association (IHMSA) Pistol. Civilian Battle Rifle Match is held in even months and a Varmint Rifle Match is held in the odd months.
