NSSF Five-Star Rating Goes to Keystone Shooting Center
NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that it has awarded its highest Five-Star rating for range excellence to Keystone Shooting Center located in Mars, Pennsylvania.
Though just two years old, this spotless, modern facility on the outskirts of Pittsburgh is quick to impress. The veteran-owned and -operated indoor range houses a robust 24 lanes that accommodate handgun fire and rifle ammunition up to .50 BMG. A tactical bay with an advanced target retrieval system and strobe lighting is a gathering place for both local law enforcement undergoing training and area action-sport shooters looking to up their game and skill levels. An ample supply of rental firearms, including a selection of full-autos, gives both walk-ins and members a chance to try something new, and that in turn drives online and in-store sales and a thriving firearms transfer business.
Keystone Shooting Center offers a variety of amenities designed to please shooters of all experience and interest levels. Private shooting bays and meeting rooms, for example, are in frequent use by the range’s corporate and VIP members, and these well-appointed spaces are also frequently booked by outside companies, organizations and individuals for charity and team-building events, holiday parties and other celebrations. An on-site gunsmith is another benefit area shooters enjoy, as is the well-rounded calendar of firearms training classes and personal instruction. An active indoor shooting league and a number of specialty tournaments keep the entertainment value high and encourage the range’s customers to become more involved in the shooting sports.
