Scottsdale Gun Club opens newest location.

Inclement weather didn't stop massive crowds from attending the grand opening of SGC * Peoria, the Scottsdale Gun Club's newest Arizona retail location. More than 1,300 people participated in the Peoria, Ariz., celebration, which included an overview of future plans for what will be the nation's largest shooting range upon completion.

"This is a record-breaking opening turnout for us, and it speaks volumes about the interest in the SGC offering," said Chris Schnieper, president of SGC * Global Industries.


Upon completion, SGC * Peoria will be nearly twice the size of the original Scottsdale Gun Club, featuring a 60,000-square-foot facility with 56 lanes, including a 12-lane, 100-yard indoor rifle range. The new retail store will offer an impressive selection of top gear and firearms, as well as a full range of tactical accessories, ammo, scopes, holsters, knives and gun safes.

Highlights of the event were vendor demos, prize giveaways and activities. Local council members, Chamber of Commerce representatives and key members of the community participated in the commemorative ribboncutting ceremony.

In addition, a fundraising effort during the grand-opening festivities resulted in an $820 donation to Fighter Country Partnership, which supports the men, women and families of Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, Ariz. SG * Peoria sold commemorative bricks that will line the future shooting range.
