Mission 160 is a premier outdoor range located only a few minutes from McKinney, Texas, just off Highway 160 in Whitewright. It is convenient to access from almost anywhere in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area.

“We are excited to be bringing the national championship match back to Texas in 2025. Mission 160 is home to a very large, active IDPA club. The range is great and very convenient for everyone traveling in for the match,” IDPA Executive Director Joyce Wilson said.
