We are projecting a completion date on the new firing range, for Friday March 4, 2011. From that point, we will have the State of Tennessee Department of Safety to come in and inspect the site to certify it and approve it for Handgun Safety Training. I am hoping to have a class scheduled for late March.
We will schedule a basic pistol class for sometime after next Friday, in Morristown at the Village Gunshop and Gunsmith.
We are excited about the new pistol range we are in the process of developing. The next closest range is thirty miles to the Northwest and forty-five miles to the Southeast. As soon as we get a break in the weather we will go to work improving the berm backdrop. In the mean time, we will begin offering the NRA First Steps and Basic Pistol Classes. In addition, we will be offering basic tactical and advanced tactical training for those who desire to enhance their handgun skills. We will also be offering a tactical shotgun training course.
All of our instructors are now NRA Certified Instructors in Basic Pistol Instruction. With this certification we are now able to offer Concealed Carry Permit Classes in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We are committed to providing the highest quality instruction to our clients with the pledge to provide training that will make the student a more confident and competent shooter. Stay tuned for further developments
Well we have made it through January and we are still in business. That is the Good News. In January, we suffered what we thought was a setback when a moratorium was placed on the use of the firing range in New Tazewell. With that moratorium, all handgun carry instructors were no longer able to use the firing range that had been previously used. Not being one to sit down and die without a fight, we began to search for another range site, that would give us bigger and better opportunities for future growth and the ability to offer more to our clients.
We Found the Perfect Site for our New Firing Range
We are currently in the process of setting up the new firing range and plan to be up and running between the end of February and the middle of March, 2011. This will probably be the best time to start back up anyway, due to the harshness of the weather we have experienced recently.
