SAFETY. EDUCATION. PRECISION.
Gunsite classes will begin promptly at 0830 and go approximately until 1700 each day at the Colonial Shooting Academy. 6020 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23230. You will not be permitted to enter the building until that time, as Colonial Shooting Academy does not officially open until 10:00. They will have someone at the door to greet you and show you where to go. Please park in the back of the parking lot.
A portion of our first morning will be spent in the classroom. DO NOT come in with your weapon on. Bring it in a case or range bag. You will be given instructions when to gear up.
Our goal at Colonial Shooting Academy is to provide a welcoming atmosphere to anyone interested in shooting, regardless of experience level. Safety is our guiding principle. It starts with education, and it ends with careful and precise planning of every detail, from the front desk to each shooting lane.
The Gunsite raven has landed on the east coast in Richmond, VA, at Colonial Shooting Academy, bringing Gunsite firearms training closer to millions of east coast firearms enthusiasts. This long-awaited partnership between two leaders in the firearms industry, gives the east coast the opportunity to enjoy Gunsite’s world-class firearms training at the best indoor range in the country. By making popular Gunsite classes like the 250 Defensive Pistol Course more accessible, we hope that we will be able to share the Gunsite doctrine with more Americans and help to make our country as safe as possible.
Classes will fill quickly, sign up today and be a part of history!
