SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The NRA Range Development and Operations Conference on March 12-15, 2016 in Birmingham, Alabama will provide a forum for Meggitt Training Systems’ representatives to meet current and prospective range owners. Topics include the future of range planning, design, installation, equipment, proper ventilation and opportunities for greater facility sharing with local, state and federal authorities.
“The shooting community is often very knowledgeable about range design before they contact a vendor, but it’s critical to consider every element early in the process,” said Jon Read, vice president of live fire systems, Meggitt Training Systems. “Meggitt understands and works with all facets of shooting range design, construction and installation. With 90 years of experience, 24/7 customer support and the industry’s leading products, Meggitt provides turnkey range development assistance to range owners around the world.”
Together with live-fire instruction, law enforcement and commercial range managers want virtual marksmanship and judgmental firearm training systems too. With early and long-term preparation, range owners can save time and money by planning for future investments and new technology. The integration of both live-fire and virtual training systems allow range owners the opportunity to service more customers, including local and regional law enforcement agencies.
As consumer expectations grow, especially on potential lead contamination, range owners will need to upgrade their facilities. Meggitt Training Systems’ recent “10 Commandments of Clean and Healthy Range Design” show the way forward. http://meggitttrainingsystems.com/About-meggitt/10-Commandments-of-Range-Design
