    Will be looking into it ....

    Hopefully they will incorporate some "good" range rules/standards.
    My wife and I were in Columbus Ohio a couple of times in the last month and I visited 3 indoor ranges, all better facilities with better rules/standards than anything local around here.

    Will have my fingers crossed!

    Some reading about it here: http://forum.pafoa.org/showthread.php?t=247020

    It's been in the works for years and despite some of the "never going to happen" proclamations in that thread, it was announced last year that the Township had approved the project and it was indeed real. Thing is, there have been other attempts at expensive indoor facilities (Bullseye off the Parkway West comes to mind). Whether or not this one will survive is the question. Not sure what it would take to get me to pay to shoot when I belong to a club so we'll have to see.

    Bearpack. You are confusing Keystone Shooting Center with Ellwand Shooting Academy. You are indeed correct when you say THEY have been in the works for years. However, we are an entirely different group and decided to build when all the "talkers" didn't move on a site. We completed all of our engineering and site plan work and received Planning Commission approval on 4/4 of this year and received approval by the Board of Supervisors on May 21st. We are moving dirt. We have been moving very quickly to open by November 15th, weather permitting (pray for no heavy June rains). We are currently in the gun business and own Keystone Armory in Edinboro, PA. I encourage you to verify any of this info by going onto the Marshall TWP website and by driving by 925 Sheraton Drive in Mars, PA. We have been moving VERY QUICKLY to bring a great facility to Pittsburgh.

    In short order, the renderings you see are the REAL deal and this is what is being built. If you have any questions feel free to direct them to me and I'm happy to answer them. We are very happy to be opening Pittsburgh's first 5 star indoor shooting range.

    I live in Harborcreek and have been a customer at KEYSTONE ARMORY. Kind of curious why you didn't build the range nearer to your shop. There really aren't too many indoor shooting venues available in NW PA. Affordable ones, especially.

    We may do that in the future. However the favorable demographics of the northern part of Pittsburgh swayed the decision to build there first. As you know putting in an indoor range is very expensive and the market area has to be right in order for us to do so. I'm not sure the demographics of the Erie area support what we are building in Pittsburgh. We will probably build 3 ranges in Pittsburgh before moving on to additional areas. At some point, we may decide to build there as well. Hope this answers your question. Thanks for your support of The Keystone Armory

    See my reply to Bearpack. We have been moving very fast and decided to build when all the "talkers" didn't come through. Hope this helps.
