    Tom had to close it because of his health. It is located in county and not city so it would be very easy to open it again. The range equipment inside have been removed and sold years ago. The people that own it do not want to sell it. They only want to lease it and the price they want is ridiculous! I have been trying since Tom put the place up for sale to buy it and it seems to go nowhere with the new owners. I have been scouting land for the last couple years to build a new one from the ground up and design it the way I want it. It will happen eventually. I would like to have 8 indoor 50 meter handgun stalls and 2 100 meter indoor rifle stalls. I would like the land to be shaped kinda like a football field so we can have a covered outdoor area to maybe reach out to 1000 meters for the rifles. I would like to make it a one stop shop with the retail store as well as a on site gunsmith. We will also do machine gun rentals. Nothing will put a smile on someones face like a machine gun :D
