What Life Should be Like - The Laramie County Shooting Sports Complex

We just got back from Cheyenne where we went as a vendor to the Wyoming Sportsman's Gun Show.
While there we had the opportunity to visit the adjacent Laramie County Shooting Sports Complex and meet with Keith Tast, the facility manager. All I can say is - if only we had such a well run well equipped facility !!!
It was built within the past 2 years. State of the art 14 lane indoor range - indoor archery and air pistol - outdoor range which they're building out to include skeet and trap - fantastic staff - Volunteer Instructors willing and eager to help new shooters - Full class schedule including Hunter Safety and Concealed Carry - it's just plain awesome! The NRA has provided grant money to the facility - they offer NRA programs and have volunteer NRA certified instructors

It about brought tears to my eyes. In Metro Denver gun owners are being made to feel like pariahs at best. It was such a moving experience to see a municipal facility dedicated to shooting sports education, training and enjoyment.

This is a shining example not just of an excellent county government, but also of just what the NRA can do for a willing community in terms of grant money and program support.

Congratulations to all involved!
