LEWISVILLE, Tex. (CBS Houston) – A new gun range is in the works for Lewisville, that hopes to offer the community a family-friendly experience and kids’ birthday parties on the shooting range.

The Eagle Indoor Gun Range is still under construction, but it will one day be a 24-lane indoor facility open to gun enthusiasts of all ages, WFAA-8 is reporting.

Owner David Prince told the station that two rooms will be made available for the birthday parties.

“The age limit is eight years old. You have to be tall enough to get above the shooting table,” Prince was quoted as saying. “They’re not gonna be left unattended. Parents are gonna be one-on-one, or if there’s not enough parents we’ll have range safety officers here to show them how to do it safely.”

The Eagle Gun Range hopes to offer a new experience for families seeking to educate their children about proper, safe gun use.

Great idea! Teach the kids (and parents) firearm safety, responsibility, and use BEFORE they need to defend themselves. Unarmed self-defense can be another birthday party.

For ‘fraidy-scared Dawn McMullan, in the article, I wish you’d take a gun-safety course yourself...and get a useful *education*.

FWIW, our gun range has done *birthday parties* for over 40 years, as far as I can recall...without a single incidents.

Yesterday I drove past a little country bar with a shooting range out back and two Rebel flags flying out front. I wish I had taken a picture.
