Frequently Asked Questions
The thought of owning a franchise in a growing industry is equally exciting as it is nerve-wracking. Being a first-time business owner in a growth market presents a unique opportunity that rarely comes around. We understand that you probably have questions regarding virtual gun ranges, so we encourage you to read through our most commonly asked questions below.
A "virtual" shooting range is a simulated live-fire range. It is designed to offer gun owners and enthusiasts of all experience levels the opportunity to fine-tune skills in an environment that supports learning and recreation and removes the obstacles associated with traditional gun ranges. Through real sim guns, realistic target practice, and real-world shooting scenarios, visitors are immersed in an experience that challenges their abilities and helps them grow as responsible gun users.
The growth within the firearms industry has presented a unique opportunity for franchises, such as EVR, to own market share. Traditional live-fire ranges offer many challenges and drawbacks, including the high cost of opening a gun range, the safety risks, the small demographic pool, and the rising ammo costs. With a virtual shooting range, there is an opportunity to innovate with a safe, less expensive, and interactive shooting range alternative.
A virtual shooting range appeals to all experience levels and interests. From law enforcement training to first-time shooters, a virtual gun range offers a safe, educational, and judgment-free zone for all shooters to practice their skills without the intimidation associated with a live-fire range.
