  • My recent visit to AIM in Blakely GA

    I taught my first class utilizing the facilities at American International Marksmanship Academy in Blakely, GA. I am amazed at the facility there, and what it is soon going to be. Currently, it encompasses approximately 2500 acres.

    Here's a list of what they either have already, are currently building, or have planned. This is by no means a comprehensive list covering everything!

    200, 300, 600 and 1000yd Known Distance ranges with pulled target butts, similar to KD ranges used to qual in the military, or shoot matches like at Camp Perry

    2400yd Unknown Distance Range

    Range specially designed for Snipers to practice angle shots, e.g., uphill and downhill, out to 1000 yards

    15 pistol ranges, including turning targets, steel and "runners"

    Trap, skeet & sporting clays

    Shoot houses

    "Breaching" house for demolitions and such

    Combat town

    40 acre driving course

    Drop zone

    Aerial platform shooting range

    An airfield so that units such as the Rangers can practice airfield seizures/denials. For those of y'all that don't know, airfield denials involves uses upwards of a total of 400lbs of explosives to blow big holes in the runways so that the enemy can no longer use them.

    An airplane fuselage/cabin for use with Simunitions

    40 student and 100 student classrooms

    Bunkhouses, cabins and squad bays

    Pro shops with gunsmiths on hand

    Chow hall

    They bought the local municipal airport and have that attached to the property.

    I met a bunch of guys down there, and they were all outstanding; friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I'd like to give a big shout out to my main contact down there, Marc Masoner. Marc is a former Ranger and a heckuva guy.

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

      You really have to see it to know how well designed and built the place is.

                Here is a pic from the firing line of the 2400yd Unknown Distance Range, which is not done yet. We were able to get 1000yds out of it, but it will be ready to go the full distance very soon.

                        Nice looking real estate.
                        Too bad it wasn't there when I was working nearby at Ft. Rucker a couple years ago.
