In just a few months, area residents will have a new place to hone their firearm skills.
Verne Fowler said he expects his Georgia Gun Club to open in mid- to late July. Gwinnett County recently issued the development permit for the club, which will be located at 1951 Braselton Highway.
The 4.06-acre recreational facility near the intersection of Braselton Highway and Old Peachtree Road will include a 37,300-square-foot, two-story building featuring 28 indoor lanes -- eight tactical, 12 small arms and eight 100-yard rifle lanes.
Fowler said the Georgia Gun Club will also include an 8,000-square-foot retail store with firearms, sporting goods, self-defense items, shooting accessories and more.
The club will be open to the general public, but will also offer memberships, Fowler said. Members will enjoy extra benefits including the use of a members-only lounge and a simulator.
Fowler, who has spent 20 years in retail and 30 years in commercial real estate, said the club will offer programs for all ages and will be focused on education and training.
“We want to be a member of the community,” he said.
Beginning next month, Fowler will open a temporary store at 1944 Braselton Highway. Visitors to the store will be able to see the type of products that will be offered at the Georgia Gun Club retail store and look at plans for the facility.
