Tom VanHoose owns and operates Highwood Creek Outfitters, an indoor shooting range in Great Falls, Montana. Formerly an investment adviser, Tom saw an opportunity to open a range in Helena and began construction in October 2018.
With state-of-the-art construction, HCO offers eight lanes, (three rifle and five handgun) for year-round target shooting, as well as a full retail store. The range is very well lit, temperature controlled, and offers hospital grade ventilation for shooting comfort and safety.
The main purpose of this indoor shooting facility is to provide a place for people to improve their marksmanship and the safe handling of firearms. While shooting incidents are rare on ranges, the following range rules and regulations were established to ensure safety and discipline for individuals using the range as well as the safety of the neighboring shooters and the surrounding property and persons.
The facility opened to the public May 2019
