The City of Carlsbad Shooting Range and Action Sports Recreation Area is a six hundred forty five (645) acre paradise not just for the shooting enthusiast but also hosts go-kart, radio controlled model airplanes racing competitions. Included at the shooting range are four (4) skeet, a pistol, small/large bore rifle, silhouette, muzzleloader, and archery ranges. Down the road is the Yucca Flats Raceway, a competition go-kart track, that includes cross-wind runways for the RC airplanes.

Several groups utilize the recreation area throughout the year holding monthly matches, providing Youth Hunter Education and Youth Hunter Education Challenge programs, and area and regional competitions. These groups along with the New Mexico National Guard include:
