Centennial Gun Club opens $10 million expansion



Clayton Woullard of the Denver Post writes:

Centennial Gun Club recently finished a $10 million expansion to a new facility that’s relieving the backlog of reservations at the previous location.

The new facility at 11800 E. Peakview Ave., Centennial, is 35,000 square feet compared to about 8,500 square feet they had in the old facility a parking lot away. Construction started in May and finished up before Dec. 25.

The new facility also features 28 new shooting lanes, eight of which are reserved for their VIP section, called the Statesman’s Lounge, designed for people like professional athletes who don’t want to be bothered for autographs, said Richard Abramson, general manger and CEO of the Centennial Gun Club, which opened in the old location two years ago. The old facility had six lanes for shooting.

Benita Chappell practices shooting Jan. 31, 2014, at the gun range at Centennial Gun Club.

“We were busting at the seams,” Abramson said.

Their motto is equip, prepare and practice, focusing on getting proper equipment in their 5,000 square feet of retail, proper training in their classrooms and practice on their shooting lanes.

“We really believe in training, and we believe anyone with a firearm has a tremendous responsibility and need to be trained how to use it and we have a range of classes,” Abramson said. “What we see is people come in and buy their first firearm, we help them get training and then they go practice and elevate their skills, and people find it’s really fun so people keep cycling back through the equip, prepare and practice.”
