Last month one of the NRA's Range Development & Operations Conferences was held in Buffalo, New York. The conference is a five-day industry seminar focusing on fundamental aspects of building and maintaining a shooting facility. Those who attend receive a multidisciplinary perspective on major topics of:
- Developing business and master plans
- Public hearings and zoning boards
- Environmental sound
Lead on outdoor ranges and OSHA lead standards
- Range maintenance
- Range safety
Range Development & Operations Conferences are designed to educate range owners and operators, of both existing and proposed range facilities, to identify potential problems associated with engineering, environmental issues, and safety. This information is vital for government agencies, as well as commercial, public, private, school, club, and casual ranges, of both indoor and outdoor types.
Presentations are given by America's top experts on range development. The ultimate goal of the Range Development & Operations Conference is to give attendees a forum to share their knowledge, and ensure the public has a safe and convenient place to shoot in order to exercise their second amendment rights.
A key element for advancement in any profession is continuing education. Today's shooting range operator needs the savvy of a businessman, the wisdom of a firearms enthusiast, and the knowledge of a health and safety professional. The most successful professionals constantly strive to improve their knowledge and expertise by pursuing opportunities to learn from associates and experts.
