Thanks to all at DEFENSIVE CARRY !!!!
After getting feedback from this forum, the NRA, several of the local LE departments and the NASR I am going ahead with plans to build a 50 foot indoor pistol range that will be open to the public.
I have met with my partners and after a grilling by an accountant who acted as Devil's advocate (recommended by our lawyer) came out with a positive report on our business plans.
Now in the land acquisition stage we are choosing between two sites. One has the best possible location and a higher property tax the other is a little more out of the way but low taxes. I tend to feel the LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION cliche is correct and the best way to go.
The range can handle all handgun calibers up to and including .44mag. It can also be used for sub-machinegun training. For EPA and OSHA only jacketed or semi-jacketed ammo will be allowed. Shooters will be able to buy ammo anywhere they want but we will offer it at a price that is very competitive.
Total 100% fresh heated and airconditioned air will be supplied from behind the stations so the shooters are in a lead (and other junk) free enviornment.
We will have 12 stations (one wheelchair accessible) with motorized target systems.
In house classroom will offer classes in many disciplines including the course needed to apply for a pistol permit in NY. The classroom and the range will be made available to LE departments for training.
We plan on offering special coupons to local gun stores for range time with each pistol purchase.
God willing and if all things go well we may be ready in about 5 months.
ANY IDEAS OR FEEDBACK WILL ALWAYS BE WELCOME..
