The Chester Rod and Gun Club indoor pistol range presented the challenge of very tight existing building space needing to house a 50-foot firing range. Expanding the building was not an option.
All we did was the demolition of the old backstop and Modern Metal took it from there,” Del said. “Chris helped with the design, took over all of the metal fabrication and then had it professionally installed.”
One of the key differences Modern Metal Solutions offers clients is a deeper understanding of metals from their elemental properties to real world uses. They understand how all kinds of metals are used in building, ornamental and industrial applications.
“The old pistol range backstop didn’t effectively absorb or collect all of the back splash fragments and we had to add ballistic blinders to protect shooters from stray fragmentation,” Del said. “These blinders continually needed replacing which was costly.”
MMS went to work drafting, fabricating and installing new Venetian blind-style backstops, where bullets are deflected back and down metal fins.
