I have been shooting there for the past 5 years and bought a few guns from them during the Obama years. It's very unfortunate to see them go. There reloads were ok but the staff and RSO's were great. I have to wonder what factors caused the closure.

Does anybody know what happened to them? Were they shut down for legal reasons or safety reasons? Could it be that they feel they can make more money selling overpriced classes?

Island View was my go to place being less than 2miles from my shop.I could pop off 100 rounds on a lunch break trying out a new wheelgun and do easy quick 20 minute PPT's.Its a major loss in my books..They called me in last week to finialize a technical on some paperwork before they closed , the place looked barren and one guy said they would be parting out the whole range assemblies .The place was going to be stripped so it unfortunately doesn't look to be staying open in any capacity.

It was more than likely lack of income.

I packed the range bag for tomorrow and after not finding any ammo prices listed on their website I checked out their FB page to get more info.
DAMN! At least they could have posted something on their website. I just about broke even on my diamond membership but the location was the biggest convenience for me. Hopefully someone has bought the shop and will spark it back up instead of turning it into a plumbing supply warehouse.

This really blows. I was a charter member and I bought a LOT of hardware, ammo, and stuff. I’m sad to see them go. I heard rumor that it was going to get bought a few months back and made into a range/tactical training school but reading post above sounds like it’s getting parted out. Man I’m bummed.

This is bad news- we are left with much less desirable options at this point.

Basically to get to a good range means I have to drive 45Minutes minimum

Good! That's what happens when you price gouge your customers. When you have a business and treat people poorly they don't get mad they just never come back.

Talked with someone who works there. They ran out of money. Couldn't even pay employees.
