Proposed Johnstown firing range advances

JOHNSTOWN – Another step has been taken toward the development of the Liberty Firearms Institute in Johnstown, a 100,000-square-foot firing range and gun store.

Liberty Arms, the Fort Collins-based gun store planning the firearms institute, has purchased an eight-acre tract in Johnstown for the construction of the Liberty Firearms Institute, according to Heather Rubel, general manager of Liberty Arms. The transaction occurred earlier this month.

The institute will be located in the 2534 commercial development southeast of the intersection of Interstate 25 and Highway 34, and will include a restaurant, classrooms and a 60-lane firing range.

Liberty Arms is obtaining the proper permits from the town of Johnstown, Rubel said. That process usually takes six to eight weeks, and after the permits are acquired, site work can begin.

Plans for the facility, which is expected to cost between $15 million and $18 million, were first approved in August 2013.
