    Default New Range for Buffalo is in final stages.

    For all you shooters in the Buffalo Area,

    If you have been hearing about a New Gun Range that has been in the works, then get ready for some good news.

    There is going to be a meeting at the Depew Town Hall on February 2nd

    If you really want a range that has 8 Rifle Lanes, 8 Pistol lanes
    A meeting room, a retail gun shop, and Archery lanes and 3D range.

    Then I suggest you start planning on being at this hearing and show your support.

    Ken Wolcott needs your support on this to get an occupancy permit and license to open in Depew. Fill the place with pro-gun supporters.

    Okay, lets hear the excuses on why you can't make it to the meeting.

    Nice!!! I live outside Rochester (no public ranges). I've driven to Buffalo to visit the Niagara Gun Range north of the city and Depew would be closer to me. Wish someone would step up in the Rochester area and try to open one up.

    What part of Depew will it be located in? Cheektowaga or Lancaster?

    Most important at the meeting would be people who support the range and live in Depew. Of course, just because a Depew resident would like a new range doesn't mean he or she wants it in his or her backyard.

    The worst case scenario would be a meeting filled with non-residents clamoring for approval of the range.

    We (potential users) need to flood the meeting to show overwhelming support.
    Who knows maybe we can have a meetup and go out for a beer after the meeting.
    Residents are one part of the equation - potential customers are the other.

    This is the site for the new Shooting Range
    3052 walden ave - Google Maps

    While residents of Depew would be nice. The meeting is public and open to all.
    The Supporters of the project are needed to show the town planning board that they too would be benefiting from a revenue source that is serving the whole area.

    Isn't this the old Fast Freddies?

    NO! It wouldn't. That is almost exactly what we are trying to do. Except no "clamoring" just supporting.

    Yes it is.

    Is the plan to use the existing building or tear it down build a new one?

    Use of the existing structure would engender a lot less opposition.

    Wow!! I REALLY hope this happens! I live in Lancaster and hate having to drive a half hour to go to Niagara Gun Range. I just joined a shooting club in Lancaster so I don't have to drive as far but you can only shoot 22 or lead.

    This range would be on my route to work. I would definitely hit up this place often!!

    THis would be located in the TOwn of Cheektowaga. Also it is bordered only on one side by residences at that would be the backside. The other 3 sides are a business, an old railroad bed, and Walden Ave.

    @Golox4 The VFW right near the village hall is a nice little bar with better then average prices. Have to go down stairs to get in though.

    Yeah, the Depew/Cheektowaga thing has always confused me.
    Is the VFW open to non members?
