Las Vegas Range Info Needed

I got an email from the folks who are setting up this years' Blog World and New Media Expo in Las Vegas 15-17 Oct. (http://blogworldexpo.com):

One of the things I am trying to do is set up some charity events to support charities chosen for this year: Soldiers' Angels, Remind.org, and Fisher House. This is something new that I've implemented since taking on the job. More to the point, one of the charity events (and it may be the only one) is a charity shoot at/during the Expo. The original plans for this have suffered a bit of a setback.

So, I would very much appreciate it if you or some others who live out that way could recommend a range (or two) near Las Vegas. The current plan is to hold a raffle at the event, and take 3-5 people out shooting with Team Blackfive, and a few other milbloggers, on Saturday. If someone can walk the talk, we will take some or all of the winners out in an armored scout car. The winners will get some class time before leaving, and personalized instruction at the event, one or more of Team Blackfive having been SF weapons instructors.

I hate to impose on you, but could really use the help in locating a good and friendly range, pref. one with reasonable rates (or that might be willing to join in, sponsorships being low at this point).

I saw in the news that a brand new shooting facility is going in in Clark County near Las Vegas, but it won't be available until next year. For this year's event they need to find something for a little shooting. They'd like to have at least 100 yards, and more would be better. Closer target stands would probably be needed too. The Pyramid range (Washoe County Public Shooting Facility) in Reno would be perfect, except it's in Reno, not Las Vegas.

If you have any ideas and information on Las Vegas ranges, please leave a comment and help these folks out!

The Boulder City range is about 20 minutes from the strip and offers the amenities requested.
