Gift certificates are now available for the holidays at the Clark County Shooting Complex, Nevada's 5-star outdoor shooting facility.
"Our gift certificates are a popular item at the shooting complex during the holiday season because visitors enjoy the flexibility of the gift certificates that can be redeemed for Beretta firearm rentals, ammunition, accessories, target fees, day fees, and logoed apparel," said Steve Carmichael.
Residents are encouraged to purchase a gift certificate so that friends and family can enjoy the experience of the various shooting sports offered at the shooting complex, including trap and skeet, sporting clays, rifle-pistol and archery. The certificates have cash value, but cannot be redeemed for cash refunds.
Gift certificates are available for up to $100 each, and can be purchased at the Shotgun and Rifle/Pistol Center or main office. Gift certificates may also be purchased by credit card over the phone, and sent to the recipient of the purchaser's choice. For more information, call (702) 455-2000 or go to www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/ShootingComplex.
The 5-star designation is from the respected National Shooting Sports Foundation, which awarded the Clark County Shooting Complex its highly sought-after 5-star rating in 2010. The complex is one of only 66 facilities in the United States with this designation. Facilities can earn up to five stars based on an evaluation of six criteria: appearance, customer/member focus, customer/member development, management, community relations and amenities.
