The Nolatac Training center is a private range located on the grounds of Nola Motorsports Racetrack.  You will need to sign a waiver at the front gate. Just tell them you are here for a firearms training course.

Go straight through the security gate then turn left at the traffic circle. Continue straight back, even after the road turns to gravel. The range is right past the shooting tower, on the other side of the shipping containers, that is on your right-hand side.

There is a cafe on site if you prefer not to bring a lunch.
