GAT Guns’ Magnificent Indoor Range and Nikon Spot On Competition Preparation

Steven K. Ledin,

The news flyer from the city of East Dundee states that GAT Guns' indoor ranges are the "largest in the country". They are simply state of the art and magnificent. The 14 new 75 yard rifle range lanes and 14 new 50 yard lanes have target carriers that utilize computer touch screen controls for distance settings. They are fast! They turn 90 degrees when scooting along, and turn perpendicular when they stop. The carriers have lights built in. Ventilation is superb. Plenty of chairs. Rifle rests avalable for use without fee. Tables are clean and padded. You can eat off the floors. These 28 new rifle lanes compliment the existing 24 25 yard pistol range lanes and the also new 11 position training lanes. Superb. The new shooting booths are also quite wide. You can see from the photos how well lit and clean everything is. Combined with a selection of many thousands of different firearms for sale, the firearm and accessory store already has been one of the most highly respected gun shops in the country for decades, and with the new ranges, it's really hard to believe. 63 total lanes to shoot in.  R. Lee Ermy, aka "The Gunny" will be there to say hi to everyone this weekend. God bless our second amendment and this country.

I met with our Kate, Elena, and Brian early. This was in preparation for the Nikon Spot On Technology shoot they'll be attending next week. My guys Trevor and Chase from Product Intelligence will represent OpticsPlanet. Last year the guys came in 7th out of 49 teams. They hope to do better this year. A great shoot featuring many different platforms.
