A camouflage design decorates the exterior of these rooms, and inside the long, darkened space ends in a giant screen, where a projector displays different scenarios.

These virtual firearms look like their real counterparts, aside from the long chords that feed into the simulator.
Four years after he first stepped onto a skeet field, Terry Hetrick joined the All American Team and All State Team at age 17.
