According to USA Today, the new owner of a more than 22,000 square foot building off West Saginaw Highway, plans to open a gun shop and indoor shooting range by this summer.

I've been going to shooting ranges for a very long time because I really enjoy them. Shooting at targets is a skill and it takes time to get better. I find it very exciting and love shooting guns at targets.

When The Range 517 opens at 6135 W. Saginaw Hwy., it will occupy all but one 1,300 square foot suite in the building where Great Harvest Bread Company is located.

The Range 517 will offer sales of new and used firearms, ammunition and gun safes and an indoor shooting range with 12 lanes.

There's a need in the Lansing area for more places where gun owners can shoot both handguns and rifles.

Memberships will be available and the facility will offer on site safe deposit box storage for members firearms. The facility will be open to those without memberships as well.
