Hunters and other gun owners won't have to drive outside of Door County to tests their firearms and skills in a controlled climate. Steve Estes and Scott Virlee are planning to build an indoor shooting range at the site of the former Save a Buck store at 1019 Egg Harbor Road in Sturgeon Bay. The building had previously been owned by Palmer Johnson. The indoor firearms range would open under the name Virlee Gunworks. Estes says the range should appeal to gun owners like himself and will offer range memberships. Estes also says people can rent shooting lanes by the hour and try a firearm before buying it.
Once the plans get city approval, Virlee Gunworks hopes to open for business by August 1st.
