New Indoor Range Opens At NC High School

posted on April 21, 2016

A brand-new 1,200 square-foot, six-lane, indoor shooting range opened in North Carolina last week. The catch? It resides at Smithfield-Selma High School. 

Members of the school’s Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program will practice at the facility, which was funded by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. JROTC cadets will use Daisy pump air rifles, however thorough training will be required before members can actually shoot at the range. 

“There’s a marksmanship safety test they have to take, and they have to get a 100 on it,” Commander David Wegman told WRAL-TV in Raleigh. “In addition to that, they have to sign a safety pledge, get permission from home and then finally demonstrate on the range that they know how to handle one of these air rifles safely.” 

Currently, four cadets are range-certified, however Wegman hopes every senior will be qualified by next fall.
