From the Heart
From the Heart....

I personally want to thank you for being such an important part of our growth.  During our first 2 years as Reno Guns & Range, we've experienced the usual new business stresses, but have also had many great successes.   As we approach this anniversary, I wanted to express my gratitude to our amazing team, customers, vendors and friends.

When I started in this industry in 2008 as one of the founders of U.S. Firearms Academy, I had never even held a firearm.  The thought of learning to shoot was intriguing, but as it turned out, it was more difficult for me to embrace and stick with than I expected.  I was lucky though.  I was surrounded by a few people who encouraged (not pushed) me in many different ways.

While at U.S. Firearms Academy,  Jay was always passionate about training and worked long hours at helping to create a variety of training programs, some of which were for women only.  Our desire to provide quality training continued to grow.  Jay became our Training Manager and continues to be a valued part of our team.

At Shot Show 2013, I stumbled on a Digital Simulator system.  Proven to be valuable in the Military and Law Enforcement world, we believed it could provide a significant value to the civilian world as well, so along with  the support of my family, Jordan and David, we created MiScenarios LLC and brought the technology to Reno.  This system was ultimately rolled into Reno Guns & Range and continues to offer great training options.

2014 was a major turning point for the business.   With major support of Jordan (General Manager), Tyler (Sales Manager), and Jay (Training Manager), I decided it was time to build a First Class Indoor shooting and Training facility.  Along the way, I also met Ken Crawford, whose passion is also training.  Ken joined our team (Range Manager and Senior Instructor) and opened new doors for us.  I am very grateful to each of these people as they have helped make this project what it is today.

On a very broad level, our vision was to create an indoor shooting and training facility that's family friendly, safety oriented and comfortable for people with all levels of experience.  I'm proud of our whole team at Reno Guns & Range. The passion and commitment of our sales, range, instructor and admin teams support all of these efforts and translates to the many smiles, great reviews and referrals we regularly see.

On a personal note to anyone who might not know how to get started ... I understand and assure you that we're here to work through it all with you.  Take tiny steps, don't be pressured, enjoy the journey.  As you build confidence, you'll become more empowered.  Your journey may even expand and become an exciting adventure.  But again, start slow and go at your pace.  Our instructors and training options are amazing.   

I also commend many of you who are becoming better marksmen through practice and training.  We love seeing you grow!  

Finally, I'm proud to say that since we opened, I've taken a number of our classes and love to train.  Most recently I even took the 2 day Advanced Pistol Handling class with Rob Pincus during the 2017 PDN tour.  While it was physically challenging, I'm sooo happy I did it.   I hope you enjoy your journey as much as I've come to enjoy mine.
