Defense Gunsite Moves East Recoil Staff July 15, 2015 Join the Conversation Heading out west to Gunsite? Not so fast… Gunsite Academy, the shooting school founded by the celebrated Colonel Cooper in Arizona, just announced an exclusive partnership with Colonial Shooting Academy (CSA). The Richmond VA CSA facility houses the largest public indoor range in the nation with 60,000sq ft, more than 50 shooting lanes, and a shoot house. Here's what they have to say about it: “We are proud to add Gunsite’s world-class firearms training to what we believe is the best indoor range in the country,” said Colonial Shooting Academy Marketing Manager, Peyton Lacy. “Anyone who is serious about firearms training dreams of attending a Gunsite class and now we are able to bring Gunsite 2,000 miles closer to shooters on the east coast.” The collaboration between Colonial and Gunsite will bring Gunsite classes like the popular 250 Defensive Pistol course to Colonial Shooting Academy’s indoor tactical range and indoor shoot house starting in September, 2015. The 250 Defensive Pistol Course was first presented in 1976 by Colonel Jeff Cooper and is one of the most sought after firearms classes in the country. Suitable for shooters of all experience levels, the 250 Defensive Pistol Course is designed to achieve gun handling confidence & competence, includes 5 days of range work, lectures & intensive live-fire simulators, including low-light scenarios. “I am proud to bring the Gunsite experience to the east coast at Colonial Shooting Academy,” said Gunsite Owner Buz Mills. “There is certainly an advantage to being able to train rain or shine, and the facilities at Colonial Shooting Academy are the best I’ve seen on the east coast. I’m going to enjoy spending time with new students in Richmond and I’m sure that some of our regular Gunsite students will be dropping by as well.” Of course the full class compliment will still be available to those out west, but now they're more accessible to those on the east coast.
