Club founders and sisters Cara and Robyn Workman say they saw a need in Norcross to provide a safe facility in which hobbyists, hunters and those interested in self-protection could take up the sport of shooting and learn proper gun-handling—without having to travel miles outside the city. The sisters also say they wanted to create an intimidation-free space for women. “Women especially will benefit from learning at the range,” Robyn says. “Many have bought guns for protection but haven’t a clue how to use them.” Female range operator Arlene Mison will direct gun-shy women of all skill levels in training classes each Thursday during the club’s Ladies Nights.
The Norcross Gun Club and Range will also be an invaluable resource for the recently incorporated city’s police force. The club will allow the Norcross Police Department to conduct its firearm qualifications without leaving the city for weapons training.
Open to the public, Norcross Gun Club and Range also offers individual, family and corporate memberships. In addition to a handsome, members-only lounge outfitted with leather furniture, card tables, plasma TVs and Wi-Fi, the club boasts an oversized dedicated classroom equipped with a variety of pistols, rifles, AR-15’s and AK-47’s available for sale.
