Centennial Gun Club opens shooting range

 Reporter-Denver Business Journal –

The owners of the Centennial Gun Club couldn’t get the business’ new shooting-range facility open fast enough.

Virtually since the day the business opened in February 2012 as the Gun Store at Centennial, near the busy corner of Peoria Street and Arapahoe Road, its six existing lanes were completely booked at all times.

So the company immediately sank $10 million into building a 35,000-square-foot facility, with 28 shooting lanes, a lounge and a 5,000-square-foot retail store. It opened at 11800 E. Peakview Ave. this month, adjacent.

“That should really ease up the pressure on the lanes,” said Richard Abramson, general manager. “As soon as we feel the pressure on those lanes, we have room to add 10 more — which should be a cushion for a long time to come.”

The business’ growth has been rapid: It started turning a profit after the first year of operation and have doubled year-over-year revenues in the second year of business, Abramson said.

“The business has grown a huge amount in the past year,” he said. “We don’t know what the new normal is … We’ve had so many first-time gun buyers in the last year, the complexion of the industry has changed in the last two years.”

It’s a business that seems to turn on a dime with political changes, news of mass shootings and supply-and-demand challenges with ammunition.

Abramson said the number of memberships has “more than doubled” in the last year and retail sales have tripled.

“We’ve scrambled to find the ammunition we need to keep the range stocked adequately,” he said. “We’ve just signed new contracts, which should give us a solid supply for the foreseeable future.”

More than 300 members signed up in the days after the new shooting center opened, which Abramson said is the largest in the state.

Saunders Construction Inc. of Centennial was the general contractor for the facility. Intergroup Architects of Littleton designed it.

Abramson said the business plans to hire up to 12 people in coming weeks to help staff the new center. Company officials are also looking to replicate the model in four other cities.

Bring your dad to the Centennial Gun Club this weekend to shoot a suppressed rifle! Our Surefire representative is bringing in two suppressed rifles, chambered for 5.56, that you can demo, free of charge. The only requirement is that you purchase ammunition at the store to ensure that safe and consistent loads are being used. We have 5.56 rounds priced at $12.95 for 20 rounds.

The rifles will be available during the following allotted times:

  • Tomorrow, Saturday, June 15th from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM
  • and Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Join us this weekend to celebrate Father’s Day and for a truly unique shooting experience!

Interesting suppressor facts:

  • You can own a suppressor! A suppressor must be registered with the ATF and requires a $200 tax stamp.
  • Suppressors became a registered item in the U.S. during the Great Depression as an anti-poaching measure.
  • Suppressors are completely unregulated in France.
  • The European Union has a law that actually requires suppressors be issued to anyone that uses a gun at work, such as a gamekeeper.

Best Range Experience

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by Centennial Gun Club Stories

I started going to ladies night shortly after it began and just completed the NRA marksmenship program and received my distinguished expert certification for pistal shooting.
I have been to a few other local ranges before for their ladies night where I was just treated like a number, but at Centennial the staff and owners are all so friendly it contributed to an over all wonderful experience every time. The facility is clean and the range itself is well ventilated. They also have marshalls in the range to answer any questions or assist you if needed.
If you are a lady who has never shot before Ladies night is for you. It will provide you with the opportunity to not only learn how to properly handle a firearm, but also try out various modles and calibers of pistals and rifles. The best part is its all free, you only have to provide your own ammunition.
I highly reccomend visiting Centennial Gun Club for Ladies night and any other time for one of your best experiences at a range.
Thank you Centennial Gun Club for this great experience!
