BEAUMONT: Indoor shooting range proposed

If approved, the range will be located at an existing industrial complex at 877 W. Fourth St., an industrial neighborhood in Beaumont.
The Planning Department has recommended the commission grant the applicant, John “Casey” Seewoster, a permit provided he meets certain conditions. For instance, neither smoking nor alcoholic beverages would be allowed on site.
Seewoster hopes to open the Beaumont Indoor Shooting Range in February or March.
He said his professional background ranges from construction superintendent to licensed journeyman electrician. These days, his full-time job is planning the shooting range.
“I’ve been hunting and shooting as long as I can remember. I grew up in Norco,” said the 45-year-old Seewoster, who has lived in Beaumont with his family for about 15 years.
“I love guns. I love to teach people about gun safety and how to have fun with guns safely,” he said.
The shooting range would consist of nine pistol ranges and four or five rifle ranges. Seewoster plans to sell guns and other merchandise, such as targets and T-shirts, from a showroom. He said he would carry “normal, standard everyday ammunition and weapons” and no machine guns or anything of that caliber.
He said he will have federal and state dealers’ licenses.
Seewoster said he is taking every safety precaution possible. He said he will install a state-of-the-art bullet trap, designed to do just that — trap bullets. He said an exterior surveillance system is already in place at the industrial complex and he will install indoor cameras. Visitors will have to be buzzed in.
He will equip the range with a system for re-circulating and filtering the air.
Seewoster said anyone on the premises under the age of 18 would have to be accompanied by an adult. He said he would allow children as young as 10 to use the range, but would prefer if they were at least 12.
He envisions law enforcement and security professionals, such as security guards and armored transportation guards, using the shooting range, as well as the general public.
The Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation & Park District has recommended the city approve the shooting range. General Manager Mickey Valdivia stated in a letter to the Planning Department, “We do not anticipate any adverse or negative impacts with this business in our community and it is a welcome addition to our recreational repertoire.”
