Whiskey 5 – 37 PSR Gun Club

Monday, November 7th, 2016

SSD’s Whiskey 5 is a recurring feature that asks industry organizations, “Who, What, Where, When, and Why?” It’s a column intended to give you a more in-depth look at those manufacturers, trainers and individuals that make this industry unique. Today we’ll be taking a look at the 37 PSR Gun Club, which we originally talked about back in 2012.

Who

The 37 PSR Gun Club is a shooting range and training facility run by Retired Special Forces NCO Frankie McRae. McRae also operates Raidon Tactics, a fundamentals-to-Special-Operations training organization which holds most of its open-enrollment courses at 37PSR.

What

37 PSR Gun Club is a full service low restriction outdoor shooting range and training facility featuring covered firing lines with handgun, rifle and shotgun shooting positions, tactical training, competition bays, and a 360-degree ballistic rated shoot house. 37 PSR also houses a gun shop with full gunsmithing services. 37 PSR is open to shooters of all skill levels from beginners to special operations troops, and offers families everything from a Woman’s Only Shooting program to a Youth Shooting Program and Family Steel Challenge Matches. 37 PSR’s staff and firearms instructors have many years experience in either Special Forces or the US Special Operations Command.

When

McRae bought the facility in 2009, when it was barely recognizable as a range. Using his own and an investor’s funds, he recreated the facility from the ground up and opened it for training later that same year.

Where

37 PSR Gun Club is based in Bunnlevel, North Carolina, between Fayetteville and Lillington, just off HWY 210, 45 minutes from the Fairgrounds in Raleigh and 15 minutes from Fort Bragg.

Why

Initially planned as a DoD-specific training site, 37 PSR evolved into a civilian-friendly range offering everything from firearms fundamentals classes for children to advanced skills courses for special operators.

McRae realized the Fort Bragg area, home to numerous highly-trained troops and their families, lacked a low-restriction range where those troops and families could actually train rather than just shoot (no more than two rounds at a time, no drawing from the holster, no movement, nothing but sterile, square range noisemaking). 37 PSR Gun Club filled a dire need for a real place to train, from cradle to adulthood, without the mind-numbing restrictions of the typical shooting range. Despite detours from the original plan, and a near-catastrophic “hoarding instead of shooting” lull after Sandy Hook, 37 PSR continues to build its client base and expand both its facility and services offered.

Green Beret Pro Am Shoot 2012

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

The Green Beret Foundation provides, fittingly enough, unconventional resources to facilitate the special needs of wounded, ill and injured Green Berets and imparts unique support to the Special Forces community in order to strengthen readiness and uphold Green Beret traditions and values.

You or your company can help the Green Beret Foundation in its endeavor to assist our nation’s finest by sponsoring a shooter for the 2nd Annual Green Beret Pro-Am Shooting Match sponsored by Raidon Tactics Inc. and hosted by 37 PSR Gun Club.

The Green Beret Pro-Am is being held on 12 November 2012 from 10am til 5pm. There will be five shooting stages, each testing the shooting abilities of each team member. The teams will consist of a wounded Green Beret and a sponsored competitor. You or your company can support a team or be a competitor yourself. The minimum donation to participate as a Competitor is $500 with 100% of your donation going directly to the GBF. There will be no overhead taken out of any donation funds. All sponsors that are not able to participate can still assist the GBF by donating prizes or other goods and services in support of this event. Last year the event raised $13,000 and they want to increase the amount this year to at least $20,000.
