Family Firearms opens new gun range in Valrico

Family friendly atmosphere, leagues, disability lanes offer options for everyone

 

VALRICO, FL – March 5, 2012 – A popular gun store, Family Firearms, is changing the way shooting ranges are built, perceived and utilized. Attributable to continued growth of their shop, owners Marco and Jessica Caporale took the opportunity to build an experience-driven shooting range in Valrico.

 

The new location opens at 106 St. Cloud Avenue in Valrico on March 19 with ten lanes for shooters to hone their skills. Unlike other ranges, the Family Firearms shooting range offers disabled shooters wider lanes for handicap accessibility. Staying true to their name, the range also will be family friendly.

 

Gun and shooting enthusiasts in Brandon and Valrico will be able to take advantage of the air conditioned range for fun or for sport. Leagues, including a new woman’s league, will be able to use the facility to shoot competitively. Setting themselves apart, rapid fire and drawing from a holster also will be permitted.

 

Owner Marco Caporale is excited to open the range. “We can promise that our range will not be like any other in the area. We have a lot to offer: a new showroom, gun rentals, shooting leagues, handicap accessible lanes, classes, convenient hours; and, our mission is to make it all about the experience which we intend to do!”

 

Range fees start at $10 per person for a half hour to $15 per person for a full hour. Both single and family memberships are available. Early memberships are currently being sold online or in their store at a discount.

 

  • Annual Single Membership: $200 includes 10% discount on select store items
  • Annual Family Membership: $250 includes 10% discount on select store items
  • 30-Day Membership: $30

 

Family Firearms is currently seeking grant funding to offset the cost of the disability accessibility. Caporale says, “We saw a need for disabled shooters to have options and wanted to fulfill it.” This mindset further solidifies the relationships that the team at Family Firearms has with their community.
