Colonial Shooting Academy Comes in with a Bang

Posted on March 5, 2012 in News

Construction is nearly complete, hundreds of memberships have been sold and the largest indoor shooting range in the United States is scheduled to open this month in Richmond.

The construction of Colonial Shooting Academy consists of the conversion of a three-story, 60,000-square-foot former retail store into an indoor shooting range on West Broad Street in Henrico County. The building is located between Libbie Avenue and Horsepen Road.

Colonial Shooting Academy has three inside levels with 51 shooting lanes or stations for its members and the general public. Most of the lanes are 25 yards long. An additional 11 lanes, a shoot house and classrooms are for law-enforcement training and use.

The building structure is completely utilized with an exterior facelift and additional parking. The interior was completely gutted.

The building housed Colony House Furniture from 1965 until the store closed in 2007. The new Colonial Shooting Academy is the largest indoor shooting range in the United States.
