New indoor shooting ranges are not just another place to shoot. Or at least they shouldn’t be. The purchase of a gun (and firearms accessories) to add to or start a collection of firearms should be informative and experiential. These gun retailers have a responsibility to the community to offer knowledge about the gun safety. My goal is to facilitate the process from conceptualization of the idea, through modeling the business, and handling the real estate and construction, ending with upfit of the various building and operational systems. It is a multifaceted process with several dozen key individuals to open a shooting range on time and on budget. Expertise in the management of the process will prove invaluable!
