Last summer, Gunsite Academy announced the opening of its new satellite facility, located in Richmond, Virginia. This was electrifying news for shooters and self-defense enthusiasts who had dreamed of receiving world-class instruction in pistol, rifle and shotgun, but who found the travel expenses intimidating. The new East Coast location put Gunsite within reach of millions of people up and down the Eastern megalopolis. It also put Gunsite just a hop, skip and a jump from NRA Headquarters. We sent our Firearms Inventory Manager, Karie Thomas (herself a firearms instructor and veteran of many training classes) to check the new facility out and give us her thoughts.
