100 meter indoor range(lots of pictures)

Post by Dutch Mosin » Thu Aug 09, 2007 3:03 pm

The gun club that I'm a member of is building her own 100 meter indoor range.

Just thought you all might like to see how the work went in the last couple of months.

It took about 2 years to get the necessary paperwork, but finally the work started.

I'm no expert, but if you have any questions just let me know and I'll try to answer them.

Enjoy

In the wall behind these workers there will be a door and a window.
This will be the entrance to the range itself.

:D Well done on the new range. Nice to see one being built rather than being closed. Looking forward to seeing the finished premises.

Thanks for all your replies. :D

It took our gun club a long time to get the necessary licenses and to find a bank to finance it all.

Things worked out great thanks to all members but especially thanks to our board members who spent lots of hours getting things done.

I’ll keep you all posted.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

That is quite an undertaking.

So how many people are in the club? Must be an expensive building project considering the size. Any chance they will open it to the public for a fee to help pay for it?

Are you going to cool it in summer and heat it in winter? Bet that would also be an expensive thing to do considering the space.
