American Sportsman Shooting Center Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aimpoint Holding, has announced the launch of America’s first indoor hunting shooting center — the Sportsman Shooting Center located in Grapevine.
Sportsman Shooting Center is a fully enclosed, indoor training center that provides the opportunity for shooters to practice on dynamic hunting scenarios inside an air conditioned, live-fire cinema range using their own rifle and ammunition. Blaser R8 rifles will be available for rental, and Norma ammunition available for purchase in all major hunting calibers. Aimpoint sights will be offered as well.
Scheduled to open in September, the Sportsman Shooting Center will occupy a newly built, state of the art 9,000-square-foot range facility in Grapevine. This facility is the first of its kind in the USA, and will be used as a model for future locations across the country. The center will offer shooters access to an advanced three-part program:
• A 100 yard, underground sighting tunnel allowing customers to zero their rifles and optics with electronic target scoring.
• An interactive SimTarget training simulator using a non-firing replica firearm fitted with an eye-safe laser emitter. This system allows an instructor to actively monitor and refine a shooter’s form for greater accuracy.
• The USA’s first live-fire, cinema projection range, providing shooters the chance to practice their skills on a wide variety of realistic hunting scenarios from whitetail deer to African game. The scenarios are projected on a 12′ x 30′ screen with computerized scoring, and shooters may use their own rifle and live ammunition.
