NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearm industry trade association, is pleased to announce that it has awarded Parma Armory Shooting Center its Five-Star rating, NSSF’s highest designation for range excellence.
Located in Parma, Ohio, in Cuyahoga County, Parma Armory Shooting Center is on the southwest edge of the greater Cleveland and attracts a diverse range of customers. The facility is known as the home of the “21 Gun Salute Range”—the world’s largest indoor double-deck gun range.
“We are very impressed with the Parma Armory Shooting Center on many levels, which is exactly the reaction customers should have when visiting an NSSF Five-Star facility,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail & Range Business Development. “The innovation shown in its physical facility, their dedication to training, and the professionalism of its staff at the sales counter, in the classroom and on the range, all add up to a premiere experience for the customer.”
Parma Armory Shooting Center offers many admirable features under one roof. There is, of course, the 21 Gun Salute Range, which boasts 21 40-foot shooting lanes and digital target control with a wide range of target variation; the intimate 5 Star Gun Range that features five 30-yard lanes; the PASC+V Virtual Gun Range for both basic training (practical) and advanced crime-in-progress training (tactical); and a 3D archery range that allows paper or 3D targets to be shot simultaneously from 5 to 35 yards with compound, traditional or crossbow equipment.
On the retail side, Parma Armory has it all—from firearms to ammunition to accessories. Virtually everything a customer might need is available at the Parma Armory Shooting Center Gun Shop or other independent self-defense specialty shops that occupy the facility. Gunsmithing services are available as well.
The shooting center offers single and family memberships with perks such as a minimum of one free hour of shooting every day for everyone included in the membership plus unlimited hours of shooting whenever a range is available. And Parma Armory Shooting Center will exchange a membership from another range for an equal duration at its facility.
Training and education are big at Parma Armory Shooting Center. A full range of training courses are offered, including CCW classes, NSSF First Shots introduction-to-shooting classes and advanced training, with emphasis on self-defense. Parma Armory proudly notes on its website that “new shooters quickly become intermediate and expert shooters through group and private custom training classes.”
“Being recognized as a Five-Star facility by NSSF affirms the vision we had for Parma Armory Shooting Center to be one of the best ranges in the country,” said Rob Euerle, President. “We have a great staff that share in this honor. Most important, we value our customers and have worked hard to provide them with a facility where they can enjoy their chosen shooting sports comfortably, while improving their ability to defend themselves and their loved ones.”
