THE NEXUS DIFFERENCE - PART 4 - PRIVATE TRAINING BAYS

In the previous segment of The Nexus Difference, we looked at how our specially designed walls have multiple layers of protection built in to enhance shooter safety. Now, let's take a look at how we are using those walls to create multiple independent bays to enhance your shooting experience even further!



THE PROBLEMS: Most ranges compromise your safety by crowding multiple shooters into a single room. Looking at the diagram below, it is easy to see how having many customers of varying skill levels packed tightly together is detrimental to safety.



- Sweeping muzzles: Untrained shooters may have poor muzzle discipline or even walk around behind other patrons pointing their firearms in unsafe directions.

- Noise: Trying to shout loudly enough to be heard over the continuous gunfire as well as through earplugs and muffs is nearly impossible. For nervous first time shooters, being unable to hear instructions is unacceptable!

- Unrealistic training: Training from a static firing position is only adequate to learn basic target shooting. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to defend yourself, being able to shoot a non-moving piece of paper while you are standing still in one spot is of limited value. In a real life scenario, the players are constantly in motion! Also, the majority of home intrusions occur in the dead of night. How can you handle a low-visibility nighttime shooting if you've never practiced in those conditions?

- Poor Ventilation: The inadequately ventilated room fills with smoke and vaporized lead from multiple shooters (see our prior post about the differences in ventilation systems here... http://nexusshooting.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-nexus-shooting-difference-part-1.html).





THE NEXUS SOLUTION: As can be easily seen in the picture below, having multiple shooting bays at Nexus alleviates these issues. This makes it is easier for us to separate customers for the ultimate in safety. Nexus has EIGHT independent shooting bays varying in size from 10 to 150 feet wide! Whether you want a whole bay for yourself or have a large group of 10 to 20 people, we can easily accommodate you.




- Control of the entire room: Control of an individual bay allows for easy discussion without having to shout over the gunfire of other patrons.

- Privacy: Families with children, public figures, celebrities, and women seeking a safe and discreet experience can shoot without being concerned about other customers.

- Low light training: Look at the female patron in the left most bay. Having your own bay means you can turn the lights to a low setting to properly practice with a handheld or weapon-mounted light. In our opinion, this is the only way to prepare for the possibility of a nighttime encounter.

- Shooting on the move: By separating the range into multiple bays, experienced members will be able to shoot on the move. Practical training like this is unavailable in any other indoor range around! This is also key for practical firearms competitors. Those of you engaged in USPSA/IPSC, IDPA, 3-gun, etc. will find Nexus to be your ultimate training ground. You will no longer have to limit your training at static ranges. Rent out your own bay, set up your own course of fire, and gain a competitive edge! We will have equipment similar to those found at most practical competitions available for your use, including obstacles, cover, doorways, windows, reactive steel, moving targets, etc.

This sounds amazing! I wish you great good wishes for your success.

I'm in Oregon, but would consider a trip to your facility if the fates allow.

Here are some progress pictures from the construction site. We're about three quarters done with the exterior painting and most of the interior drywall is up. Even prior to painting, the massive monolithic concrete structure really makes its presence known!






After some paint is applied, the angled architectural elements are really accentuated and the building is really brought to life!







Our monster ventilation system is almost complete. The ducting is so large that you could probably drive a golf cart through some of it!





When the building is viewed from a distance, you can really get an idea of how immense and complex our ventilation units are. The roof looks almost like a small city with all of the air conditioning units. This rooftop "city" will keep our ranges cool, clean, and comfortable!







The main retail area is coming together. With our massive central skylight, the showroom will be well illuminated with plenty of natural light!

Highly impressive. It looks space age and super modern. I think you'll eventually be turning people away or or at the least scheduling times for the range.
