Large-scale indoor live-fire shooting range coming to Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) – Ground has been broken on a massive indoor shooting range that will cater to all levels of shooting sports enthusiasts in Central Texas.

“The concept for The Range is unlike any shooting and firearms retail experience in the Austin market and exceeds the standards currently in place at other competitive luxury facilities,” said Scott Dunaway, spokesman for The Range at Austin. “We will embrace customer service through training assistance, supervision of live-shooting ranges, equipment demos and sales, food and beverage offerings and private event space.”

Customers will have the opportunity to rent and demo firearms offered in the store under the supervision of trained instructors and range masters, enhancing the buying experience and creating a safe environment for understanding the proper use of certain firearms.

Safety is a top concern; the shooting environment will be constructed using the latest technology in sound abatement, ballistic glass and lead filtering systems.

The Range at Austin should be open in summer of 2016.
