Tulsa Firearms Training Academy opened its’ doors in 1976. Owner, Riley Gilmore’s interest in firearms began at an early age, dating back to his Boy Scout days. He later began teaching firearms instruction as a volunteer for the YMCA in the late 70’s. Riley believed there was a need within the region for a safe location where homeowners, sportsmen, security officers and policemen could have a place to shoot indoors and enjoy the benefits of target shooting. With the help and support of the Gilmore family, Tulsa Firearms opened its doors as the fourth indoor shooting range in the United States and has become the premier indoor shooting facility in this part of the country. www.tulsafirearms.com
