Lessons Learned: Building and Operating a Gun Range
Instructor: Tim Holley, Meggitt Training Systems
Room 4401A, Sands Expo Convention Center
This session will focus on many of the unforeseen issues customers, law enforcement officers, range masters, and owners experience when operating an indoor firing range. More specifically, the presentation will outline material pros and cons by showing real examples of types of target carrier systems, bullet traps, and ballistic protection materials. Meggitt will describe the proper types of equipment to be installed in shooting ranges, such as the suggested target carrier systems for commercial ranges vs. law enforcement ranges, steel traps vs. rubber traps, and many other pertinent “lessons learned.”
