The newest range on Oahu opened its doors recently in Waipahu, offering West Oahu residents a state of the art facility for recreational shooting or training. The operation is run by X-Ring Security, a long-time gun shop. I’ve been a customer of theirs for years and can attest to their reputation for integrity and fair prices.
The 25 yard range offers 9 shooting lanes with a wireless, programmable, turning target system. This technology rapidly positions the target at the desired distance providing a variety of scenarios. It’s ideal for training everyone from law enforcement or security personnel to weekend warriors who need to sharpen their skills.
Brian Takaba, manager at X-Ring, said that the range offers a venue for both first time and experienced shooters. “We have the only indoor civilian range in the area and which means West Oahu residents don’t have to travel far to shoot.”
One of the most important components says Takaba, “is our climate controlled ventilation system which keeps the particulates and gas discharged from the firearms moving away from customers.”
The range ventilation system is designed to meet all applicable EPA, OSHA and NIOSH air quality standards.
To join the facility you must be 18 years of age or older. Anyone under the age of 18, must be supervised by their parent or legal guardian at all times and is only allowed admittance as a guest. Discounts are offered for Law Enforcement and Military.
