At Blackhawk Shooting Sports, our goal is to provide a fun environment for the people in Eastern and Southeastern Wisconsin to learn, train and safely shoot firearms. We strongly believe that education is key to creating a safe, comfortable shooting range environment.
The idea of Blackhawk Shooting Sports came one day when our owner was curious about the process for purchasing a firearm. Not just the transactional part of the purchasing process though (you know, where they run the background check and give you a firearm in exchange for your money), but the information given to you about the firearm before you made the purchase, and the support and guidance they gave to you after you completed the purchase.
Essentially, he was curious about how well informed he would be before giving them his money, and how they would support him to become a safe handler of the weapon after the transaction was complete.
Unfortunately, besides asking some general questions, such as “do you want to conceal carry?” or “what do you intend to use the gun for?”, there wasn’t much that he was able to learn before making his purchase decision. Once he selected the firearm he wanted to buy, it took approximately 45 min. to complete the background check and get his receipt.
Even more unfortunately, after the purchase was complete, he asked the staff where he could go to learn about properly caring for the firearm, where he could go to get firearm training so that he could operate the gun safely, and what indoor shooting ranges were around that he could take (and possibly keep) his new firearm for practice and storage.
The staff of the store selling him the gun didn’t know how to answer his questions.
They couldn’t inform him on how to care for the weapon.
They couldn’t inform him on where he could receive safety training to learn how to safely handle the weapon.
And they weren’t knowledgeable about the options for indoor shooting ranges in the greater Eastern / Southeastern Wisconsin area.
We are Blackhawk Shooting Sports; our mission is to promote safe and responsible participation in the sport of shooting by helping new gun owners learn and become safe and comfortable with their firearms, and to help experienced shooters become more skilled and capable.
