    Family Shooting Academy in Green Bay

    Web site says opening soon but don't give any date.
    Anyone hear of this place ?
    Looks pretty interesting since I only live a few miles from it. (right by Willow Creek Bowling Center)

    Hmmm, it says they allow rifles in .308 but not 30-06. That's cutting a pretty fine line. But I guess you need to cut it off somewhere!

    Availability of AP ammo maybe?


    I might have to make the drive and check this place out once its opened.

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I've been at the SHOT Show all week.

    We are working hard to open in early March. When dealing with so many government agencies a solid date can be a moving target. Our website is more of a place holder than a full on site right now. We will fill it out as info becomes available.

    So far so good; still moving forward and all.

    Yes I have an update!

    Our grand opening is June 16th. We will open the store as soon as we have the staff and will finish the range before the grand opening. If you or anyone you know would like to apply just go to our website:

    Mr. Mike

    I have visited your site and it appears that in creating a family friendly business, you have a fairly unique business model. I hope it does well. Firearms education within a family should begin when children are of a very young age. This is particularly true in areas where there are many liberals who would teach children that only police and military should ever be armed. At recess, a child well versed in childhood safety can "call out" BS like that.

    I joined on June 16th! Can't wait to get some shooting time in, I know I'll really appreciate being a member when there's snow on the ground. This sure beats driving 25mi. one way to find a outdoor shooting range, after I factor the fuel savings the membership really wasn't that bad at all.

    I make it up to Green Bay on occasion for work, so I will definitely stop by. I remember the original suggestions thread that you started last fall, and I'm really excited to experience the finished product.
