There are a variety of projects around a gun range that require outside contractors. These may include Gun Range Cleaning Services, Lead reclamation & Brass recycling,  Range Maintenance, HVAC system updates, Range Construction and Renovation, and many more.

Complete Your Security Camera System with a Public View Monitor

Most FFL’s invest wisely in closed-circuit security camera systems and have upgraded to the newer digital or network video recording systems.  But what value is there in installing a large public view monitor at the front entrance or over your gun counter to alert criminals to the presence and recording capabilities of your camera system? 

Installing public view monitors can serve as a strong deterrent to otherwise bad or illicit behaviors. Public view monitors are normally suspended from a ceiling and face retail customers as they enter a store, reminding them that surveillance video is being used.

Most security system installation providers will advise that you should include or upgrade to a large color video monitor to alert visitors and employees that they are, in fact, being recorded. Overt monitors today are sleek and lightweight in design and can integrate into any environment. And with advances in today’s camera system software, you may be able to...
