The Robert Strickland Shooting Range, which opened in 1970, was named for former Volusia County Commissioner Robert Strickland, who served on the Volusia County Commission from 1964 to 1972 and was chair in 1969 and 1971.
The 10-acre parcel at 1180 Indian Lake Road was donated by Consolidated Tomoka Land Company.
The Shooting Range includes a state-of-the-art baffling and berm system to ensure shooter safety and avoid stray bullets.
Backstops are man-made earth embankment providing a primary impact area for bullets being fired at targets and keeping them from leaving the range.
Shooting distances are set at 7-yard, 15-yard, 25-yard, 50-yard and 100-yard target positions.
The rifle shooting stations have a variable height swing-out seat that enables a person to shoot from the left or the right. All the shooting positions have been made wider to offer safer and more comfortable shooting.
Fans have been generously spaced to keep shooters cool and help keep the air clean.
A control tower for range communications is located at the center point of the firing line. It is constructed high enough from the ground surface to allow observation of all firing points. This also allows the range master ample room to supervise and determine whether all procedures are correctly and safely maintained. The tower is equipped with a public address system to insure that all commands to the shooters from the range master can be heard.
The Miller Building at Robert Strickland Shooting Range houses a meeting/education room. The Volusia County Council approved naming the building after Jerry Miller in honor of his contribution to the shooting sports.
Sessions for training by agencies such as law enforcement, security and special qualification classes may be scheduled for the morning hours. All classes must be authorized and approved by the Parks, Recreation & Culture Administrative Office. The use of the Miller Building to hold meetings or conduct training classes must be authorized by the range master and / or Parks, Recreation & Culture Administrative Office.
