 At the beginning of 2015, Colorado was in the middle of a contentious battle to undo strict gun regulations passed in 2013. Amidst the political fights, firearms and pistol ranges in the state have continued to do well.

Here are eight Colorado shooting ranges:

1. BlueCore Shooting CenterThis facility in Lakewood, Colorado bills itself as the state's "concealed carry headquarters." Operated by Navy SEAL combat veterans, the business has multiple rifle and pistol ranges, a gun shop, and firearms training.

7. Magnum Shooting CenterThis new business in North Colorado Springs has 24 indoor pistol/rifle lanes, six 100 yard and two 50 yard indoor pistol/rifle lanes, a shooter's lounge, a retail center, and other amenities. 

8. Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex: Opened in 2013, this facility was billed as Colorado's largest public indoor shooting range. It is "a joint project between the U.S. Army, El Paso County, the El Paso County Sheriff and Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service," according to their main website. "The CMSC also received a significant contribution from The National Rifle Association (NRA)." A 400 acre site features 120 shooting positions on seven ranges. Additional phases are planned.
