If you tried reciting all the services provided at Maxon Shooters Supplies and Indoor Range, you'd likely run out of breath. In addition to the indoor ranges, the staff covers everything from installing scopes via gunsmithing services to storing firearms in a climate-controlled facility. Fifteen training courses are overseen by experienced, NRA- and state-certified instructors, and events such as ladies' nights and seasonal zombie shoots encourage communal environments.
Article 2 Gun Range is an eight-range shop staffed by expert NRA-certified marksmen. They teach courses ranging from the basics of firearm handling to advanced pistol or NRA-qualification lessons. They also host quickshot tournaments, which challenge shooters to blast targets as fast as they can. Additionally, every Tuesday night, the range is the site of a zombie apocalypse, during which shooters purchase and take aim at gray-faced zombie targets filled with fake blood.
A pistol range on one side, a rifle range on the other, and two classrooms in between. Not a single square foot goes to waste inside On Target Range and Tactical Training Center, where instructors teach classes for all skill levels. Just a few doors down from the range, On Target's gunsmiths Nick Stauber and Tom Temen draw on 30 years of experience when cleaning and maintaining firearms.
The sudden roar of gunfire rolls over Richmond Hunting Club's facilities, which sprawl across 850 untamed acres. The club's location nearly adjacent to Chain O' Lakes State Park draws sportspeople of all levels who can spend time shooting skeet, boarding a loyal hunting dog at the onsite kennel, paintballing, or stocking up on ammo at the pro shop. Outdoorsy folks who frequent the club often tie up their mountain goat outside and congregate inside the Bar & Grill, refueling weary trigger fingers with buffalo burgers and pheasant pot pies in a classic hunting-lodge setting.
After the lecture portion of each lesson, instructors and students travel to a nearby range for live-fire instruction.
While many use their own firearms, instructors can also supply a practice firearm such as a .22 during training.
The instructors at Law Weapons & Supply believe knowledge is as vital to responsible firearm handling as attitude and technical knowhow. That's why each of their classes, which range from basic pistol training to women-only classes that focus on self-defense, teaches beginner through advanced shooters with a combination of classroom and live-fire instruction. Beyond the training facilities, Law Weapons & Supply extends to a pro shop with a Full-Service Gun-Smith on the premisses.
