DO YOU SHOOT SMART?

At Shoot Smart, the focus is on safe operation of firearms for recreational shooting, personal security, and hunting. Education of the shooter is the best route to safe firearm use. Smart shooters should know how to operate, clean, and store firearms. It should be fun to learn and practice these skills. And it's important to have a nice environment to learn in.

That’s why Shoot Smart has been designed from Day 1 to be a Five Star range — a totally customer-oriented facility. Shoot Smart is a clean, well-lit, welcoming facility. The focus here is on the entertainment and recreation aspects of the shooting sports and on fun and competitive events.

Shoot Smart is a first for the area: a family-oriented shooting range and retail store with a wifi lounge. At Shoot Smart, the entire staff has been trained as NRA certified Range Safety Officers. An RSO is always on duty. Our laser simulator gives shooters the opportunity to practice skills and have fun for a lower rental rate and no ammunition. Shoot Smart is Shoot Friendly.

Shoot Smart is also ready to assist people who have never handled a gun. CHL (Concealed Handgun License) classes, along with CHL preparation and self-defense, are taught by highly qualified instructors. Details at http://shootsmartwomenschlclass.eventbrite.com/

So don’t just shoot — Shoot Smart!

ABOUT THE RANGE
Tired of bouncing targets, poorly lit shooting lanes, and out-dated equipment? The range is all new and has been designed with the needs of today’s shooter in mind. The Shoot Smart range is very clean and offers brilliant lighting so that shooters can easily see the targets.

There are ten lanes with all-new bullet-resistant stalls equipped with all-new electronic target retrieval systems with distance controls. The target retrieval system means you’ll spend less time fumbling with targets and waiting for them to quit bouncing and more time shooting.

SHOOT SMART PRIVATE LANE
Lane 11 is a private lane – a quieter and safer shooting area – with a turning target. This lane is ideal for physically challenged shooters because it’s wide and contains no fixed-height shooting table. The private lane is ideal for first-time shooters, people with physical disabilities, and law enforcement personnel. Shoot Smart’s private lane is a safe, quiet, self-contained lane that allows first time shooters to feel more comfortable and relaxed.

COMFORT AND SAFETY
With the customer's safety and comfort in mind, Shoot Smart designed the HVAC system to be second to none. You won’t find this good an air turnover and lead particle capture system anywhere else.

Also with the customer's safety and comfort in mind, the range has been designed to be as quiet as possible with extra insulation. The retail and training areas are completely separate and are quiet spaces for shopping or learning.

SHOOT SMART SHOOTER'S LOUNGE
Do you like to sit down and compare notes with friends before or after shooting? Whether you just want to relax and chat, check email, or surf the web, Shoot Smart’s Shooter’s Lounge is the place for you. The Shoot Smart Shooter’s Lounge has comfortable furniture, free Wi-Fi, drinks, games, and more. The Shooter’s Lounge is a great place to hang out and get to know other shooters.

Grand Opening March 30 @ 10am.
