Rifle Range is an area in Air Itam, Penang. It is served by the Rifle Range Road, which joins Boundary Road to form a loop, connected at each end to the Air Itam Main Road.

Rifle Range is synonymous with the Rifle Range Flats, the earliest urban renewal project in George Town. Often condemned as an urban slum, the flats have since undergone several rounds of improvements. Nonetheless they are still very much a working-class neighbourhood.

Rifle Range, or Padang Tembak, got its name because it was once an open space used as a shooting range by the police and the military. The namesake shooting range located next to the Batu Gantong Cemetery made way for the low-cost flats in the early 1970s.
