The Range in McKinney is Thom and Julie Beyer’s concept of a great gun range with a family friendly environment and excellent training where anyone can learn how to shoot and how to do it safely. Thom has loved the sport of shooting since he was 8 years old and learned how to shoot his .22 rifle on his family’s property. From that moment on, proper teaching and a respect for firearms have been important to him. For years, Thom took friends out to that same property and taught them how to shoot and how to do it safely. In fact, one of his “students” became a firearms instructor for the US Air Force — she was only 19 at the time.
In 2014, Thom went to a gun store and noticed something that annoyed him. At the gun store he was appalled by the sales person’s lack of customer service and product knowledge. This inspired Thom to do some research. He started visiting gun stores in the area and found that most of the sales people were not listening to the client, customer service was terrible, and the general up-keep of the businesses was not great. When he visited some of the local gun ranges, he realized even in Texas, in the 21st century, in-door gun ranges weren’t always a pleasant experience.
Even though you were inside, you weren’t guaranteed the facility had working air conditioning, and most had no filtration to clean the air. When Thom shared his research with his wife Julie, she noticed another problem. The existing marketing methods for gun ranges focused on a narrow, male clientele and lacked professional-looking ads and broad-based marketing materials.
They traveled around the country visiting gun ranges and learning from the gun range owners. They decided they wanted to build a different kind of gun range -- a range designed to make everyone feel at home. A range with great customer service and a family friendly environment where men, women, and families interested in firearm instruction, safety and proficiency could feel comfortable and learn about, practice and enjoy the sport of shooting.
