The first time I was told about the new video system being installed at Midwest Guns, I laughed.  Who wants video games on the range.  Then I used it, WOW!!! 

 

It has shoot don't shoot, it has a shooters alley that you got to try!  In all it has 13 differant settings, some just games, most are there to help on decission making and/or markmanship training.

 

To be clear, you are using your own gun and live ammo, not lasers.  The cost is very close to a normal range visit.  $20 for 45 minutes.  Plan on buying 200 pluse rounds to use.  Must buy from Midwest.

 

Next weekend 7/28  it is free for 30 minutes if you buy 100 rounds from Midwest.  Before you scuff, try it.  It is the newest and the coolest thing I've seen in training in a long time.

I received an email announcing the new range. Looks like a lot of fun.

Sounds like a blast(ba dump, ting!)  What is the reason that you must buy their ammo though?  If revenue, I'll pass.

Most ranges' baffle and exhaust systems are designed for ammo in specific parameters to prevent damage and respiratory issues.

Crook County tax killing ammo sales, 2 new shops/ranges opened nearby in the past year or two. I'd say revenue, but so what? They're in business to make a profit; nothing wrong with that.

nothin wrong at all with that. I generally buy in bulk for a reason. Having to splurge at the LGS on over priced ammo annoys my wallet. I’m already there spending money. That just adds to the expense unnecessarily.

They still have slots open. You have to buy 50 rounds from them.


Thank you
