We would encourage members of all ethnic groups, all ages, and both genders to apply for positions at Nexus. We feel that in order to provide the highest level of service to our customers, a staff with varied life experience will best help us gain insight into the needs of our patrons. Nexus Shooting wants to break the mold of the testosterone-fueled-alpha-male machismo atmosphere of most gun stores with a friendly, professional, and diversified staff. We have already extended job offers to members of four different ethnic backgrounds and a nearly equal number of males and females. So, for anyone concerned about the prototypical staff seen at most gun shops, we would assure you that your future colleagues and work environment at Nexus will be far superior to what you've seen and encourage you to apply today!

This is the next (shooting) BIG THING in the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida area. (Trust this old man, our area needs a gun-friendly business! ) If you are not interested in a job, look for the Grand Opening and pay them a visit to sharpen your skills!

You South FL indoor shooters familiar with the heat of indoor shooting, I think these guys have an app for that!

I am looking forward to this new establishment and plan to throw a ton of rounds down-range!

Film @ 11:00.

The build is moving along at a rapid pace. Our partners, Action Target and Carey's Ventilation, who are outfitting the range have done hundreds of ranges throughout the nation, and both have stated that they've never seen a range built so quickly, especially one that is so intricately detailed.

The steel framework for the front facade is in place, and now the beautiful angled architectural lines of our building are clearly evident. Our massive skylight will fill the retail area with natural light and give it an open and spacious feel! We won't be just another plain and dark rectangular box building, warehouse, or strip mall range!

The is only one of the TWELVE units required for cooling and ventilation of the range being installed on the roof. These units require a semi-truck to deliver and a huge crane to install. As you can tell by the size of this monster, we aren't messing around when it comes to having the best cooling and ventilation possible! Also, check out the massive ventilation ducting for one of the ranges!

And the construction marches on!

Looking forward to the opening.

The Nexus Shooting Difference - Part 3 - Shooter Safety

In the first part of this series, we described our multimillion dollar military grade ventilation system to ensure the health of our patrons as well as our employees by decreasing dangerous lead and airborne toxin exposure. http://nexusshooting.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-nexus-shooting-difference-part-1.html

In the second part of this series, we examined the differences between bullet trap systems and the benefits of Nexus Shooting's traps: http://nexusshooting.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-nexus-shooting-difference-part-2.html

The most important way to ensure safety is to emphasize shooter education. Shooters who are knowledgeable on fundamental etiquette and range rules are vital for everyone's safety. We will discuss this aspect of safety in a future segment. For this third part, we will describe some of the innovative features built into the physical range itself.

The first safety system in place is the stall walls separating adjacent shooters. Amazingly, if you read some of the range safety rules posted at other ranges, they state explicitly that their stall walls are NOT bulletproof. Our stall walls are constructed of ballistic steel UL rated to the appropriate level of protection. You can shoot without worrying about the safety standards of the person in the stall next to you.

The next feature that makes Nexus Shooting safer than most ranges is the actual physical walls of the range. Most ranges have a single layer of bare or painted concrete block (often times hollow), or even worse just a couple of sheets of drywall. Clearly, this would be ineffective at preventing penetrating rounds, ricochets or shrapnel.

As can be seen in the diagram below, at Nexus Shooting the walls between each range have ELEVEN layers of protection, each with a specific purpose. The first layer is a two inch thick layer of sound insulation. This helps to protect your hearing by decreasing the reverberation and noise of gunfire. Personal hearing protection is still required; however, this sound insulation is a beneficial adjunct.

The next few layers include plywood, a rubber membrane, crushed rock, and ballistic steel. These multiple layers are specifically designed to contain errant shots. The bullet penetrates the plywood, rubber, and crushed rock, and smashes against the ballistic steel. This prevents penetration into the adjacent rooms. But, the shrapnel from the smashing bullet and ricocheting of the bullet itself can be almost just as dangerous as the primary penetration of the bullet. This is where the other layers come into play. The energy of the shrapnel is dissipated and the fragments are contained by the crushed rock and plywood layers. The middle layer is solid 4000 PSI concrete. Then, on the other side of the concrete, the same layers are repeated (steel, rock, rubber, plywood, and sound insulation), thus DOUBLING the protection between ranges.

Every wall between our separate ranges is protected in this manner. This allows for safe tactical training all the way up and down range. Lining all of the walls with these multiple layers of protection is expensive, but at Nexus Shooting, your safety is our highest priority!
