SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At this year’s NRA Range Development & Operations Conference in Boston, MA, Meggitt Training Systems’ representatives will be available to meet with current and prospective range owners to discuss the future of range planning, design, installation, equipment, proper ventilation, and opportunities for shared facilities with state, local and federal authorities. As consumer expectations grow, range owners want to take their facilities to the next level with advanced range technology.
“Range design is about thinking long term and big picture,” said Jon Read, vice president of live fire systems, Meggitt Training Systems. “The shooting community is often very knowledgeable about range design before they contact a vendor. It’s critical to consider all components of range design early in the process. Meggitt Training Systems understands and works with all facets of range design, providing 90 years of shooting range expertise. Our solid history in the shooting range industry, coupled with personal 24/7 customer service, advanced range equipment and a professional installation staff, provides the turnkey service many range owners require.”
Together with live fire instruction, law enforcement and commercial ranges are looking at virtual marksmanship and judgmental firearm training systems as an additional element within their ranges. With early and long-term preparation, range owners can save time and money by planning now for future investments and new technology. The integration of both live fire and virtual training systems allow range owners the opportunity to reach more customers, including local and regional law enforcement agencies.
