I got to go to a new indoor shooting range yesterday! Huzzah!
The range is called C2 Tactical (seriously?) and isn’t far from my house. It’s affiliated with the Caswell Shooting Range in neighboring Mesa Arizona.
First impressions: It was busy, but, after all it was a Saturday. Lots of cool stuff in the store: handguns, rifles, knives, suppressors (!) They even rent ARs with a can attached, and a Thompson Submachine Gun! No, I didn’t ask the prices. Well staffed, mostly young, pretty people. Armed. The rangemasters (yes, that’s plural) in the handgun range (there’s also a rifle range) were attentive, friendly and polite. There wasn’t much of a space on which to place multiple pistols, revolvers and ammunition, though. The shooting bench was pretty spartan (see photo above). On the good side, the electronic control to move the targets to-and-fro was pretty high-tech. Punch in the distance, hit enter, and off she flies! It’s programmable, somehow. (I’m guessing for advancing targets during training or competition). They make a big deal on promoting ‘the most advanced ventilation system available’, as well as their air conditioning. Unfortunately with the onset of the Arizona monsoon, the humidity’s up and the range still resembled a sauna, albeit a cooler one. My roommate, who already has breathing issues, asked to leave early; the environment made it difficult for her to breathe.
We did enjoy the short time spent there, overall. The store seems well-stocked, including women’s purses from Galco and Gun Totin’ Mamas.
We will return, during the week, soon (?), when it’s less crowded and hopefully less humid.
