New Gun Range Opens in Urbana

URBANA -- As gun enthusiasts apply for Concealed Carry permits -- they may want to stop in to high caliber training center and indoor range.

Located on Triumph Drive in Urbana -- owners say it's a safe place for shooters -- of all levels.

A quick internet search and it's also the only indoor shooting facility for about 60 miles.
As a training center, high caliber offers several types of classes --
including the eight and 16-hour concealed carry courses required by the Illinois State Police.

Classes are taught by trained and certified instructors.

"Even if you don't want to be a firearms shooter and go out and enjoy any of the shooting sports that are out there, it's best to know how to do or handle a gun safely because you never know when you might encounter one," said High Caliber CEO Tim Murray.

High caliber offers memberships, but Murray says you don't need one to go on the range. And soon, he says the center will offer gun rentals so people can find the right firearm for them.
