I've got a small business idea for a little indoor sub-500 fps BB gun range specializing in blowback replicas with a small storefront. I'm not looking to step on any forum sponsors toes, I'm mainly looking at the shooting gallery aspect of the business. Maybe down the line sponsor some youth 10m air pistol and air rifle courses.

I priced out retail numbers for the sake of a draft business plan but I'd like to make some industry connections.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

This is not a direct answer to your question, but before going any further you may want to get a few quotes on liability insurance. You had best be sitting down.....

One way around it is to make it a private club, have people sign waivers, but if something bad happens you will quickly find out those things arent worth the paper they are printed on.

When the 425-hp "street Hemi" version hit the street in 1965, it was akin to taking an M230 chain gun to an arcade shooting gallery

We have something similar to what you're talking about around here. Have a look, write to them, maybe they'll share some info?
I just saw the place on FB, never actually went there.

Facebook is like ancient Egypt, people write on walls and worship cats

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

I assume you've checked Alibaba, they have some but not a lot, you should check it out though if you haven't
