You may have heard all the rumors, well it's true! It's looking like Lawton, Fort Sill will finally be getting an indoor gun range, it's about damn time! Ares State Armory is working on building a state-of-the-art shooting facility right here in town. Yesterday the news broke that the city's planning committee rezoned the property that Ares State Armory is considering for the range located near the corner of 38th Street and Lee Blvd. Ares State Armory Ares State Armory

As soon as I heard all the rumors about the gun range I picked up the phone and called Josh Powers the co-owner and manager of Ares State Armory to get the facts. He confirmed the rumors and told me that the Lawton City Council would be voting on the proposed rezoning of the property they'd like to purchase coming up on Tuesday, December 7th (12-07-21). So it's looking really good and things are moving forward.

The planning committee voted unanimously to rezone that area as I-1 Industrial so more than likely the council will do the same. That means we're getting closer and closer to having an indoor shooting facility in Lawton. Once all the details and rezoning are finalized it'll be time to move to the next phase, construction!

Along with confirming the rumors Josh also told us a little bit about the future plans and what the new range would look like. The gun range would feature 14 lanes, 7 on each side, and be 25 yards with the ability to expand out in the future to include 4 100 yard rifle lanes. It would also have a HUGE retail store, classrooms for instruction and they're also wanting to offer food and beverages as well. It's gonna be beyond EPIC!

I asked Josh what we could do to help make this a reality. The first thing we can do is help spread the word about the new range and encourage its construction and opening. The next thing we can do is purchase an advance range membership from Ares State Armory. Very soon they'll be offering range memberships and by purchasing one in advance you'll be helping out a lot. It shows the community's interest and support for the new range and is incredibly important. I'll be first in line for membership as soon as they're available! Ares State Armory Ares State Armory
