METRO ATLANTANS GET FIRED UP AT SANDY SPRINGS GUN CLUB AND RANGE
New 15,000-square-foot Indoor Shooting Experience Aims to Please With Its 16-lane, State-of-the-Art Range, Upscale Members-Only Lounge & Female-Friendly Classes
ATLANTA (September 17, 2010) – There’s a new gun in town, and as the city’s first and only in-town firing range, the Sandy Springs Gun Club and Range is turning the heads of recreational sportsmen, law enforcement officials and novice shooters alike.
Sandy Springs-based commercial real estate group Workman and Co. spent more than $3 million transforming the 15,000 square-foot space, a former flooring company showroom, into 16 lanes broken down into three separate ranges, including one for tactical shooting, which involves moving targets.
Club founders and sisters Cara and Robyn Workman say they saw a need in Sandy Springs to provide a safe facility in which hobbyists, hunters and those interested in self-protection could take up the sport of shooting and learn proper gun-handling—without having to travel miles outside the city. The sisters also say they wanted to create an intimidation-free space for women. “Women especially will benefit from learning at the range,” Robyn says. “Many have bought guns for protection but haven’t a clue how to use them.” Female range operator Arlene Mison will direct gun-shy women of all skill levels in training classes each Thursday during the club’s Ladies Nights.
The Sandy Springs Gun Club and Range will also be an invaluable resource for the recently incorporated city’s police force. The club will allow the Sandy Springs Police Department to conduct its firearm qualifications without leaving the city for weapons training.
Open to the public, Sandy Springs Gun Club and Range also offers individual, family and corporate memberships. In addition to a handsome, members-only lounge outfitted with leather furniture, card tables, plasma TVs and Wi-Fi, the club boasts an oversized dedicated classroom equipped with a Firearms Training Simulator (FATS) and a retail counter with a variety of pistols, rifles, AR-15’s and AK-478’s available for sale.
Sandy Springs Gun Club and Range is located at 8040 Roswell Rd.
