Yesterday, John and I went by Copper Star Indoor Shooting Range in Camp Verde to see how our friends are doing with their building. After a bit of a delay in getting things started, construction is coming along very well. They're looking at an opening date sometime later this summer, and we're excited to start teaching our courses there.

These are some seriously good people and it's been a pleasure working with them so far. They are currently selling individual, family, and corporate memberships if you're interested in getting involved with them. Visit their website for more information: http://www.copperstarisr.com/

I think yes. I will already be there, but if a group of people camped outside waiting for it to open, that would be badass.

I have good news: Copper Star ISR has an opening date! November 1st is the target date, and I paid them a visit today and got our initial courses scheduled there for Nov and Dec - look for the dates to be posted soon! There will also be some competitions and special shooting events scheduled just after they open.

The doors are installed and close to being open for business:

Lots of retail space, a nice big classroom, and a big vault:

It's dark in there right now, but here's the pistol range nearing completion - rifle range and archery range are looking good, as well:

When Cunningham's shooting range in Queen Creek opened, on the first day a group of Star Wars Fans showed up in full costume, including a Starship Trooper and...Chewbacca. The real Chewbacca, Peter Mathew. He gave Mrs. Flash an autographed picture of him nose to nose with the Chewbacca headpiece he wore.

Kinda cool.
