Shoot Smart, the 2016 NSSF SHOT Business Magazine Range of the Year and a Texas Law Shield facility, has announced plans to expand into Benbrook, Texas in late spring 2017. The new location marks the third location for owners Roxanne and Jim Laney, and with the addition of a third range, Shoot Smart will become the largest chain of gun ranges in Texas. The chain has been open since 2011 and has a location in Grand Prairie and in the Alliance area.
“We are elated to be expanding to Benbrook, one of the most sought-after communities in the Fort Worth area,” says Roxanne Laney, Shoot Smart CEO. “Shoot Smart’s mission is to expand the shooting sports by creating lifelong shooters in a safe and fun environment. That’s why our customer base has been growing since we opened in 2011.”
The new location in Benbrook will have 13 lanes; including seven traditional lanes and six private suites. All lanes will feature two-way voice and video communication between the lanes and the Shoot Smart control station, making it easier for shooters to order additional ammunition or rent a new firearm.
The range is introducing an all-new target retrieval system in the private suites that are wireless and controlled by a programmable touchpad, which feature turning and lighting capabilities. Shoot Smart has partnered with Rushing Air Treated Air Systems to provide enhanced climate control functionality with maximum environmental safety measures.
The entire team at Shoot Smart will be trained as NRA certified Range Safety Officers and a Range Safety Officer is always on duty. LTC (License to Carry) classes, along with LTC preparation are taught by highly qualified instructors. The team will also be ready to assist people who have never handled a firearm with New Shooter classes.
“Our goal is to provide a customer-oriented facility, and we have nearly a thousand 5 star reviews proving our success” says Laney. “When you walk into Shoot Smart, you will find a clean, well-lit, welcoming facility. We want to create a distinct destination that provides a best-in-class shooting range while offering the highest level of personal attention to our customers.”
For the opening of the new location, Shoot Smart is offering a limited quantity of the Lifetime Memberships, as well as an introductory Buy One, Get One free offer to new members. There will be an exclusive members-only opening event with more details coming soon. Private event space will be available for parties at the Benbrook location in spring/summer 2018 (Alliance and Grand Prairie offer space now).
“Shoot Smart also offers Member Perks for Texas Law Shield Members,” said Peter J. Hermosa, National Director for Texas & U.S. Law Shield. “We encourage Members to take advantage of those deals.”
The address for the new range is 9455 Benbrook Blvd., Benbrook, TX 76126. — by Texas & U.S. Law Shield Staff
