    Look at it this way Ed, even if you have to wait a little while now as a result of this promotion, the fact that you may have 3000+ new shooters in the area who will share their experiences with their friends may ensure that you have places to shoot readily available in the future.

    WTF, O?
    That's a box of 150 rounds, right? Where did they find such odd packaging? Is that how WOLF is packaging their stuff these days? Interesting...

    Great.... over 3300 'gun' people just gave money to a company that will turn around and donate some of it to anti-gun politicians.

    I dont think that these were 'gun' people in particular.. I had a lot of folks in my office approach me and ask if it was a good deal, and I told them that it was not. after I gave them the following break down:

    1 target = $1 *shared by 3x*

    1 Box of ammo for pistol (50 rounds) 9mm = $11 at walmart. *Shared by 3x*

    Eye protection rental - $2.00 each Ear protection rental - $2.00 each (what my range charges)

    At the range that I am a member of gun rental is $12.00 per firearm for an hour.

    Is the rest gun rental / instruction fee? When I break it down is shows how crazy their original price is... and I think the 'deal' is not that hot.

    (I did not need to mention the fact that this range is a regular heavy donator to some serious anti-gun politicians)

    That's a good way to look at it.. maybe out of the 9000 new shooter (3000 sales x 3 people each) we can get another 2000 VCDL members and a handful of REAL gun rights activists like all of YOU!

    And SEG was closed today due to air handler issues. No email notification, no FaceBook notification, not even a tweet on twitter...

    It's "just a range" now. The cafe, conference room, pool table, etc are all gone, no more gun sales either. Just a range and classes. It's a few miles from my house... some good people work there and I shoot unlimited for 35.00 month.
