Indoor shooting range opens

Facility won’t offer gun sales owner says

Bryan Stear always wanted to open an indoor shooting range. He says it’s actually been his personal endeavor since he was an engineering student at University of Colorado.
Now, not only will he have met his goal, but Stear will also provide indoor shooting opportunities to the north metro are with the opening of Shoot Indoors in Broomfield.
“It was my love for the shooting industry that pushed me to open an indoor shooting range,” he said. “Plus I realized there were no close ranges in the north metro area, so I decided to change that.”
Shoot Indoors, at 1 Park St., has been open for a few weeks, but the official grand opening will be Jan. 11. During the opening, Stear is offering 50 lifetime memberships for $1,000 each as well as monthly membership promotions. He said he’s excited to welcome the community to his new range, a place he hopes someday to be referred to as the “neighborhood shooting range.”
“I’m hoping people are excited about the range, and to have a place down the road from where they live,” he said. “I’ve already had some great feedback from people and that they are excited about it, so that that’s what really keeps me going.”
Shoot Indoors offers 10 open lanes, that can fit two to three people, and a state-of-the-art air ventilation system. A large customer area with tables and chairs is available to people waiting to shoot and a separate entrance and exit was constructed for people entering and leaving the shooting range.
“We don’t do any retail. I deliberately didn’t want to become a gun store,” Stear said. “I don’t want to compete with local gun stores, I want to work with them by recommending people to those stores to purchase a gun. It would also be great if the stores recommended my range for people to shoot at with their newly purchased gun.”
Stear’s also providing free gun safety classes for the community 6-7 p.m. Monday through Thursdays taught by certified and professional staff, gun rentals and wheelchair accessibility at Shoot Indoors.
