City of Goshen Buys Indoor Shooting Range For Police Dept.

6-13-2018 -- The City of Goshen is the new owner of the indoor shooting range at 713 & 715 E. Lincoln Avenue in Goshen. The property, known previously as Shoot to Thrill shooting range and Rocket Guns, has three buildings totaling 11,632 SF on 1.08 acres. The city intends to have the shooting range used by the Goshen police department which has not had access to its own dedicated range in over 20 years. The police department will also use the other buildings for training and educational purposes.

The sale was endorsed by the Goshen police at a September 2017 Goshen City Council meeting. At that time Goshen Police Chief Wade Branson said the opportunity was “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain a high-tech training facility that includes a firing range at, I believe, an extremely reduced price. I think if this chance goes by us, we will never, ever, have this opportunity again.” The city purchased the property, which is estimated to cost $1.5 million to build, for $385,000. FM Stone’s Brent Miller, SIOR, and Scott Griffith assisted in the sale.
