OUR HISTORY

More than 25 years ago, Lisle and Danni Moore opened Target Masters for business in Columbia, Missouri. They began with the goal of providing law enforcement and responsible citizens a safe comfortable environment in which to shoot and train. 

Target Masters has since earned the reputation as one of Mid-Missouri’s best places to buy tactical equipment for home & personal defense. With one of the largest selections of tactical rifles, handguns and personal defense accessories, Target Masters can help you make the choice that’s right for you!

The friendly and experienced staff has decades of tactical experience and can guide you not only with your purchase, but with operating and shooting your new gun in our 25 yard indoor range.  We invite you to come and be a part of the Target Masters’ family.
