Opening a world-class shooting facility in Shreveport has been Brad’s dream for almost two decades and Red River Range is the realization of that vision. An Army veteran, Brad served as an infantry soldier and as a Blackhawk helicopter, air assault flight-lead and instructor pilot with two deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Brad returned home to Shreveport in 2011 with his wife Ashlee, and three sons, Joey, Kelly and Nourse. As an avid outdoorsman, hunter and shooter, Brad hopes Red River Range will offer a place for others to learn and grow their love for the shooting sports and outdoors.

Robert J Poindexter Jr is the lead gunsmith at Red River Range. He was born and raised in Shreveport. After graduating form Louisiana Tech University in 2010, he left for Montana to attend Swan Mountain Outfitters wilderness guide school. Wanting to travel and guide abroad, it was fitting that he ended up in New Zealand. While in New Zealand, Robert guided hunting and fly-fishing trips for Southern Lakes Hunting Guides and also managed the hunting and fishing department at H&J’s Outdoor World in Queenstown, NZ. One day, behind the gun counter, he was disassembling a shipment of rifles to be sent to the local gunsmith to have the barrels threaded for suppressors when he decided he would investigate becoming a gunsmith. After some research, Robert decided to apply to the gunsmithing program at Murray State College in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. In May 2017, Robert graduated with degrees Gunsmithing Technology and Custom Gunmaking.
