October 1966 provided the scenery for the B.E. Hodgdon Company to break ground for this great shooting facility. The facility would spend the next year in construction and in December 1967 the grand opening occurred. The event was witnessed by many along with pretty stewardesses to perform the ribbon cutting when the facility was christened “The Bullet Hole.” The festivities of the grand opening included real fire demonstrations by Bill Jordan and the Kansas Highway Patrol and special appearances by top firearm industry executives. For the next 13 years The Bullet Hole was operated by the Hodgdon Company until being sold.
In 1981 The Bullet Hole was purchased by the current owner Richard Stovall. His philosophy is to run the company with a family type atmosphere and that philosophy is ever present when someone walks in the door. The Bullet Hole is more that just a shooting range and gun shop, but a friendly, familiar place for all who frequently visit it. The people at The Bullet Hole are always glad to help you and strive to build long-term, personal relationships with all of their customers.
Today little has changed since The Bullet Hole opened its doors to the public nearly 36 years ago. The facility operates 7 days a week and the B.E. Hodgdon Powder Company is still our neighbor. We thank you for visiting our web site and hope to meet you personally.
