My wife was reading a local forum and found something about a new indoor range under construction in Union. The only info on location was "rt 22," and that it would be similar to RTSP and GFH. The poster stated that permits were in place and construction was under way.
I'm a little surprised that I haven't seen anything here, maybe I missed it. Can anyone confirm or deny?

It would be, I live in Springfield and RTSP and GFH are both 30 minutes away on a good day.

Given the traffic on 22, it may not be any closer, time wise.

Am curious how this would help in your case. It's not like you can park your car at work all day with your handguns in the trunk and go to the range after work. An Unreasonable Deviation. (Of course, long guns would be fine or if you are a Leo)

Or he works for himself and he can bring his gun to his workplace.

Home, range, FFL, place of work in your name. And travel between them. I could be wrong, and usually am.

Maybe in the flagship basement. Raised in Union. worked at the flagship early 1970. Drive in was there. When the train would cross 22, road was closed and drag racing would start!

She saw it on a Facebook group (springfield nj uncensored) and I am not a member so I don't have access to it.

I was thinking of that spot, but a renovation in an existing space might be less conspicuous.

I have not heard anything about that project but would be interested.   Link?

 

It would be cool to see the old "Wiz" turned into a gun range. lol, the issue is working within the original structure.

 

When we moved from Russia, we lived in Elizabeth and I have fond memories of driving on 22 in Union and the nightmare that that road is.

Absolutely. When I lived in Somerset county I'd go there a bit. Then one day, it was closed.

I recently was in Davis sport shop up in NY state so I melded the two.

Ray's closed in 2008 I believe. Was my favorite place to shop!. Their used inventory was unbelievable.

I bought at least 6 used handguns and some were unbelievable deals. Especially in retrospect. The range was real old school.

Unfortunately the family had no interest in running a gun business and the land was more valuable to yet another Rt 22 Car dealership.  Nissan IIRC.

Yep it's a Nissan dealership. I inherited a bunch of ammo with Ray's price tags on it and wow I grew up a few years late for the guns

I was going through my brother's stash and saw he has ammo with Rays on it still. =)  Needless to say he does not shoot much.

 

Ah the memories of that poorly ventilated place and that cabin in the middle for the RO.  It was where I learned to shoot for the first time.

I used to shoot at ray's in the 80s and it was one of a kind... North Plainfield though, not Union.
My understanding was that Ray ran the place into his 90s and by the time he offered it to his kids, they were already retired themselves (comfortably) and had no interest in going back to work. The $13M that the neighboring Nissan dealer offered for the property was probably more than the business was worth. It's a shame to lose a range, especially in such an under-served area, but if his kids weren't interested I can't blame him for taking the cash.
