What is a 5 Star Shooting Range?

In May 2013, Centerfire shooting sports was awarded the NSSF highest honor of a 5-Star Gun Range. 

In order to meet the NSSF's criteria of a Five Star facility, a range must demonstrate excellence in all aspects of management and operations. Ranges are rated on appearance, management, customer service, amenities, customer development and community relations.  An NSSF Five Star rating demonstrates overall excellence.  Centerfire Shooting Sports is Kansas City's only 5 Star Shooting Range.
