To get noticed and promote business, North Raleigh Guns traveled and attended gun shows all over the state of North Carolina. The knowledgeable staff of friendly faces with over 20 years of firearm industry experience prompted a great response from consumers in the market. Bill saw the potential for growth and started to ponder the idea of opening a gun range. Thus while traveling, many ranges and gun shops were visited to get ideas and add to the brainstorming process.
After attending National Shooting Sports Foundation and National Rifle Association range conferences in St Louis and San Diego, the idea to proceed to open a first class range was industrialized.
Soon after, the tangible business plan was developed and the search began for banks, investors, and a place to build. Luckily things fell into place, and we found an outstanding location and construction began.
Now, Phase 1 of Triangle Shooting Academy boasts 41,000 sf, 33 lane capacity, an excellent cafe, gunsmith, retail, and much more. Our advanced simulation, rental firearms, and museum of antique firearms are all very popular. Our full roster of training classes sells out rapidly. Not to mention, we have a partnership with Sig Sauer, making TSA the only Elite Dealer in the state, and ensuring that we have a broad range of firearm offerings.
Archery, indoors and outdoors, has started at Triangle Shooting Academy, and soon we will be offering a fully stocked pro shop with an in-house bow-technician.
Phase 2 will expect to offer a shoot house, 40 pistol lanes, CQB airsoft arena, 100-yard lanes, more advanced simulation, a rooftop restaurant, and much more.
From everyone here at Triangle Shooting Academy, we thank you all for your business and continued support as we grow and advance to better serve the public
One of the largest indoor ranges in the country in Phase 1, Triangle Shooting Academy is poised to become even larger when Phase 2 is completed. In Phase 1, we have 40 lane capacity, all of which are 25 yards long. We will have 33 lanes active on day one, with seven (7) 100-yard lanes to be completed in Phase 2. In Phase 2, we plan another 40 lanes, shoot house, indoor archery, and a CQB combat arena for airsoft.
Our target carriers are the same used at the NRA range in Washington, DC, and are state of the art 360 degree turning high-speed targeting systems. Special sound proofing has been added to ensure a good experience. Bullet proof glass and doors with a concrete ceiling ensures that no rounds can escape the range.
