The standard has become 25 yards shooting distance but is, by no means, required. As a matter of fact, if a pistol rated (only) range is planned, a 15-yard shooting distance may prove to be the best option. The majority of pistol shooters, or rather the majority of shooting done in an indoor pistol range is at a distance much shorter than 25 yards (or 75 feet). In this case a 15-yard (or 45 feet) shooting distance is more than adequate and the savings of building a shorter range can be used toward equipment upgrades, retail inventory, or technology such as a few digital equipped lanes. If a 25-yard range is desired, the majority tend to be rifle rated in order to accommodate both pistol and rifle calibers.
