NSSF Star Rating System replaces the 5 Star Rating System
According to NSSF staff, the new Star Rating System has replaced the 5 Star Range rating system it uses through an extensive evaluation and inspection process to determine whether indoor shooting ranges meet safety and operational standards the U.S. public deserves and has come to expect. The criteria has been changed to raise the bar for indoor shooting range facilities. The implications are that all ranges that had the designation previously will have to re-apply for a rating that can be or 5 something less than 5 (no longer just 5 Stars, or nothing). Many formerly 5 Star rated indoor shooting ranges will either lose their status or be forced to make changes to earn it again. In a fast changing and competitive space like the indoor gun range business, we see the change as being beneficial to the industry both inward from an operational perspective and the non-shooting / new shooter populations as well.
