When we set out to build Tim’s Shooting Academy, a tour of area indoor shooting ranges revealed that existing facilities often failed to meet the high standards of their customers. In several cases, facilities had serious health and safety shortcomings. Over months of research, Tim and his professional associates discovered that U.S. Navy has developed the most stringent set of standards and specifications in the world for shooting ranges. With the help of experts, they set out to design and build the only range facility in the area that conforms to these standards, making Tim’s truly a world-class facility.

Range Hangar Policy
Firing a shot on the range that results in the bullet striking anything other than the target and/or traps, creating any damage, may result in a damage or repair fine and/or removal from the range. Anyone found purposefully shooting and damaging the target hangars will be charged $100.
SHOOTING LANES – 15 lanes total: 5, 75-foot lanes for rifles, and 10, 50-foot lanes for pistols. The interior is divided into three bays of 5, with a concrete wall separating each bay. Interior height of the walls is 10′ 2″.
BUILDING DESIGN – 10″ thick concrete walls enclose all firing lanes, acting as a noise suppression and bullet containment system. The building itself is built on a 4″ slab and is situated in a zoned industrial area with no schools or residential areas nearby. Tim’s worked closely with the City of Westfield to secure all necessary permits based on the intended use of the facility.
BULLET CONTAINMENT SYSTEM – All lanes have thick steel bullet traps installed which are rated for .50 caliber bullets (however, range rules stipulate use of common sporting rounds). These state-of-the-art traps have removal systems which will allow the lead to be easily recycled.Baffles and panels have been suspended from the ceiling to prevent any errant discharges from going through the roof.
Bulletproof double-doors separate the range from the rest of the retail and classroom space.
NOISE SUPPRESSION – The building itself, containment systems as well as the HVAC system have been designed to reduce noise issues outside the building.
VENTILATION SYSTEM – HVAC is a major part of the design of this indoor range. Our system has been designed by experts to meet all of the requirements for cleaning the air.
The installed HVAC system puts the health and safety of our employees and customers first and foremost.
TARGET RETRIEVAL SYSTEM – Automatic electronic target retrieval system on all lanes with central controls by the Range Safety Officer.
ACCESSIBILITY – One rifle lane and one handgun lane will be ADA-accessible. Two designated handicapped parking spaces.
SHOOTING STALL DIVIDERS – Shooting Stall dividers are level 3 grade protection in the pistol lanes and level 4 grade protection in the rifle lanes.
