Mooresville, NC (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
Point Blank Range is pleased to announce that they are the recipient of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF) highly coveted 5-Star Rating.
Co-owner, Dave Driscoll states, “We are extremely proud to be the recipient of this top honor that recognizes our commitment to providing the ultimate indoor shooting sports experience to the community. There are only 25 ranges in the entire US that have received this designation, and we are honored to now be included in this elite group.”
To meet the NSSF criteria of a Five Star facility, a range must be customer-oriented and demonstrate excellence in all aspects of management and operations. Ranges are rated on appearance, management, customer service, amenities, customer development and community relations.
NSSF representatives Zack Snow and Tisma Juett toured the facility. Juett states, Point Blank Range is a first class facility that reflects everything we are looking for in a 5-Star range and retail business. The Lake Norman community is very fortunate to have a facility like this. The family-friendly facility, combined with the programs and services offered create a memorable experience for new and experienced shooters alike.”
Point Blank Range, the area’s leader in promoting firearm safety and education, also offers newcomers to shooting sports an opportunity to participate in the NSSF FREE First Shots® program. In celebration of their 5-Star designation, Point Blank Range has added more classes to the roster this fall as a service to those in the community eager to learn more about shooting sports, gun safety the path to firearms ownership in a safe and non-threatening environment.
“When it comes to learning about shooting and gun ownership, not knowing how or where to start can be intimidating for newcomers,” states Driscoll. “The First Shots® program is a great way to introduce people to shooting sports, and give back to the community by providing the public with a chance to try shooting in a safe environment with our certified NRA instructors.”
First Shots® is a FREE seminar for new and beginning shooters. Developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and hosted by independent shooting facilities throughout the country, the program provides participants with a comprehensive introduction to shooting by qualified range operators and instructors that includes firearm safety, local ownership requirements, shooting fundamentals, hands-on instruction to handguns and how and where to continue developing their shooting skills.
Point Blank Range will offer morning and afternoon sessions of the First Shots® seminar on November 3, 2012, and December 8, 2012 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, and 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm at their facility. The program will cover topics ranging from handgun safety to basic skills in a classroom setting followed by an hour on the range with certified NRA Pistol Instructors to practice their newly attained skills. Parents with children 8 years old and older are invited to take this class together.
“This curriculum is perfect for new shooters of all ages. What better way to get a solid introduction to handling and firing a handgun and all at no cost to attendees,” states Troy Perry, Director of Training.
