Vortex Edge Training Center
Our training facility provides a truly world-class destination training center. A 33,000 square foot facility on the Vortex Optics campus, we’re located approximately 30 minutes west of Madison, WI.
It is our mission to create a top-notch training experience for our customers, dealers, law enforcement clients, military personnel, and other friends of Vortex Optics who visit our facility. Here’s what you can expect from Vortex Edge:
100-yard Indoor Range
One of only a few 100-yard indoor ranges in the country, and the only one in the Midwest. The range can accommodate up to seven shooters at once. It’s a fixed-firing position range, though targets can be moved to allow shooters to fire at different distances. The bullet trap is rated to stop up to a .50 BMG.
50-yard indoor range
A “tactical” range, meaning shooters may move anywhere within the room to conduct live-fire training, the 50-yard indoor range is equipped with lateral moving targets, and targets that can be programmed for various exposures, allowing instructors to run timed courses of fire, qualifications, and even scenario-based or decision-making tactical trainings.
The 25-yard “tactical” range will accommodate up to 12 shooters at any given time. With lighting and range controls like the 100 and 50-yard ranges, the 25-yard range will provide a location for both pistol and rifle training.
1000-yard outdoor shooting complex
A short drive away from our main campus and training facility is a 360-acre property where instructors can conduct live-fire, long-range training to distances beyond 1,000 yards.
The 3400 square foot modular tactical house contains over 100 wall, window, and door panels that can be arranged to simulate a variety of environments. Includes catwalks and an integrated video system to provide instructors with the ability to replay team and student movements to evaluate and critique tactics and performance.
Houses a state-of-the-art, VirTra V-300® interactive video simulator to be utilized by both Vortex instructors as well as visiting law enforcement agencies.
Fully equipped with a modern audio / visual system including projectors, speaking podium, microphones, and flat-screen monitors, perfect for in-service trainings, videos, or other classroom presentations.
