Depending on size and setup of range. I would throw out the idea of having a weekly/monthly tactical competition night.
If you are catering to the CCW crowd you will get even more business if they can come in and shoot at an organized event once a month. Plus I have always seen that CCW folks are always willing to spend more money then those who just hunt or shoot on occasion.
We have an indoor range that will setup different course layouts and will run everyone through twice. Add up all points and offer bragging rights as the prize. It costs $10 to shoot for the night, but when you have 20 or 30 people there that are not complaining about having to wait for an open lane, the discounted rate is worth it.
ONE BIG THING!!!!! LET THE CUSTOMERS TAKE THERE BRASS HOME WITH THEM. This seems to be a big thing in a lot of areas. There are many ranges that want to keep the brass. You WILL loose customers if you do this.

Well,the others can recommend stock, but from my experience with Nashville area shops- have a smith who knows his stuff. If they are still working, at least two gun-monkeys in the area should only be trusted with SuperSoaker repairs. Maybe.
