    Default New Indoor Range Avondale

    So we had the dogs to the park and I needed a few items from Lowes in Avondale. Upon turning in, I noticed a new paper sign in front of what used to be the kids indoor fun place on 41. It's called Target Shooting Solutions:http://www.targetshootingsolutions.com

    They have a FB page that shows their construction progress. It looks to be massive and state of the art. They claim it's the only indoor range in the US where one will be able to shoot and rent a Barrett. Pretty interesting. Will ask be a huge retail gun store.

    This is actually associated with Buck's Hunting right across the street. It used to be a Boomer's. They said the exhaust system alone costs about $2M. Someone is heavily invested in this venture!
    I'm only here for the wood c-rings.

    I just drove by yesterday, it is going to be massive. My cousin had mentioned the possibility of this happening about 6 months ago. Apparently it's being bankrolled by one of the local mushroom magnates.

    It's a little too far for me to drive there but I wish it great success. Hopefully they pull a bunch of business from targetmaster and it will calm down there.

    That is not correct. Buck's was going to run the store but they are no longer involved.

    Now open or about to open. Not sure how a 24 y/o has $5.4 million to open a business, but good for him...





    AVONDALE >> The largest gun store in the tri-state area, Target Shooting Solutions, will open early August at the site of the former Boomer’s Entertainment Center off Route 41.

    “This will be one of the biggest gun facilities in Pennsylvania,” said Alex Toto, 24, who purchased the building for $1.8 million and pumped in another $3.5 million in renovations. “We will have the biggest, most high-tech shooting range around.”

    More than 40 people will be employed at the facility, which features a 20-lane shooting range, and 7,200 square feet of space for a retail gun store that specializes in firearms, firearms accessories and firearms equipment. There is also a huge classroom inside the building that will be used for firearms training classes given by certified NRA instructors every day. Full article here...

    The father has been in the mushroom and real estate businesses for years. My mother in law used to rent a house from him back in the 80s.

    Congratulations to TSS and wishing much success...which I know will happen. Visited last Saturday. ...not enough time and too crowded with the sale to use my membership at the range. Nicest,friendliest staff you could ever want. Unlike the assclown platoon at Targetmaster.

    Friend of mine went yesterday, he said he'll never go back.
    A ruger 1022 break down was 400.00? Everything was at least 100.00 over list price,
    ammo was expensive also.
