A smartphone app which launched in late Summer allows gun owners to locate nearby shooting ranges anywhere in the country.
The app is called The Shooting Club and it is available for iPhone or Android phones.
According to Forbes, the app garnered over 10,000 users during the first 90 days after launching. The app benefits from a partnership with TSC Targets and “has signed 100 contracts with bricks-and-mortar shooting ranges to carry TSC Targets in-store.” The app designers also “secured online retail distribution of TSC Targets through Amazon with free shipping for Prime members.”
The goal goes beyond mere target shooting to actually envelope a “social network for guns.” The network offers a sense of community via the sharing of target shooting scores and the provision of “cash and prizes” for highest scores.
