The Colonial Shooting Academy (CSA), located in Richmond, Virginia, is the largest indoor range in the United States, with over 50 shooting lanes from 20 to 25 yards. It was designed from the top down to satisfy the needs of area consumers desperately in need of a full-service retail shooting establishment that offers a comfortable learning environment.
The large, modern building is extremely neat, well marked and expertly landscaped. Safety signs are clear and prevalent outside, and the staff is professional, knowledgeable and, most importantly, friendly. The three-story, fully accessible, 60,000-square-foot facility includes over 5,000 square feet of open, well-lit and airy retail space with a wide selection of recreational, tactical and personal-protection firearms. It boasts a huge selection of gear, accessories, ammunition and clothing.
There are five separate ranges for public and private use with automatic target retrieval systems, adjustable lighting and the latest in lead removal ventilation. The ranges will handle any pistol ammunition, shotguns with slugs and rifles up to and through .30 caliber. The full-service gun shop can handle Class III transfers and features an in-house gunsmith. Customers can also rent guns for range use and can select from nearly 100 handguns and rifles from many different manufacturers—all clean, neatly presented and well marked.
