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!
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.
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.
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.
