Frisco, TEXAS (February 24, 2012) – With more than 27,000 square feet initially and a beginning investment of more than $5 million, the largest gun range in North Texas is coming to Frisco. Upon completion of phase two, it will be 35,000 square feet of country club atmosphere and investments totaling more than $9 million, making it one of the largest facilities of its kind in the nation. The Frisco Economic Development Corporation is pleased to announce the Frisco Gun Club & Academy.
“I am very excited to announce our newest location in the heart of Frisco,” said Jim Pisoni, president of the DFW Gun Range & Training Center. “With over a decade of experience in operating DFW Gun Range & Training Center, I look forward to the opening of Frisco Gun Club & Academy. With the facility’s opening, we will provide Frisco and the surrounding communities The Total Firearms Experience.”
The Frisco Gun Club & Academy will be located on the northeast corner of All Stars Avenue and John W. Elliot Drive – just southeast of the intersection of Frisco Street and Eldorado Parkway, not far from FC Dallas Stadium. The facility will have 40 shooting lanes for the public and house six private lanes for the High Caliber Members.
The Frisco Gun Club will house a 4,000 square foot retail showroom, business center and conference room plus an extensive academy. Aside from concealed handgun classes, this state of the art facility will provide a full line of training and educational opportunities, including self-defense classes in the full sized gymnasium.
“As our community continues to grow, so do the number of companies choosing Frisco as the best place to locate, relocate or grow existing businesses, and DFW Gun Range & Training Center is no different with the addition of its Frisco operation,” said Mayor Maher Maso. “We look forward to the jobs and economic impact this business will bring to Frisco. We wish Frisco Gun Club & Academy great success as it becomes part of our business community.”
