You may have heard us on the Morning News from time to time talking about Yakima's primo indoor shooting venue called The Range.  It's a great place with excellent facilities and nice and knowledgeable employees.

We aren't the only ones to have noticed.

A news release from the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade
association for the firearms industry, announced that it has awarded its highest Five-Star rating for range excellence to The Range LLC of Yakima.

“You know the traveling tip that advises those looking for a restaurant in unfamiliar
surroundings to take a bet on the place that has a full parking lot? That’s The Range in
a nutshell,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail and Range Business Development.
“This range is always packed with customers, and that’s because it delivers on all points: range, retail, amenities and quality staff who make customer service their top priority.  With all The Range offers, we’re more than pleased to award it our Five-Star rating.”

NSSF notes "An enormous roster of training programs is another top draw. A staff of certified instructors oversees private instruction and group classes that run the gamut from Basic Handgun Level 1 and Competition Pistol Level 1 to concealed carry classes at two levels and state rifle certification that meets the criteria for semi-automatic rifle purchases in the state after its I-1639 law takes effect July 2019."

"A number of action shooting leagues, family nights, Tactical Tuesday shoots and other activities, including a basic firearms safety class The Range offers free to the public and NSSF’s own First Shots® introductory seminars, keep this six-day-a-week range thriving."
