Established in 2006, VRA is a customer focused, family owned center for firearm education, training, and purchasing. Our objective: to help people make informed decisions for their firearm needs.
We instruct the Firearms Safety Training Course (F.A.S.T), the Ohio Carrying a Concealed Weapon Course (CCW), the Ohio Retired Police Officers Recertification, and our own Shooting
Technique Advancement Course (S.T.A.C). VRA also features an extensive retail store, a pistol range with fifteen 25yard lanes, and a rifle range with five 100yard lanes.
VRA has been classified as a Five Star facility by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and is open to the public seven days a week.
In 2014, VRA purchased land for a second site at the corner of I70 and Route 3 in New Castle, Indiana (Exit 123). This location will be named VRA Indiana. New Castle’s VRA, which will be similar in size and layout to the Vandalia site is expected to open in 2017. Please stay tuned for details.
