Silver Eagle Group Loudoun County’s premier Self Defense and Weapons Training Academy will hold a Grand Re-Opening October 29th to mark the completion of significant renovations and improvements which will upgrade SEG into a world-class facility. Prizes will be awarded hourly ranging from free training sessions to merchandise discounts, and everyone who attends will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize of a free one-year membership.
Located in Beaumeade Corporate Park off Loudoun County Parkway, Silver Eagle Group will be making major improvements to its shooting range, offering a totally remodeled lobby area, adding new courses and membership options in weapons training, and will significantly be changing its retail area to include a larger, broader assortment of products.
Members and regular visitors may not at first recognize the place, said SEG spokesman Jason Randall. Our goal is and has always been to make every member’s experience as safe as possible, as convenient as possible, and as comfortable as possible. These changes are part of that plan.
The new retail area will boast not only greater styling and eye appeal, but a tremendously larger choice of product. SEG, for example, will resume the sale of firearms, and is even offering a try it before you buy it program. The club will offer hourly rentals on most makes and models they carry, and should a customer decide that same day to purchase a gun, all rental fees paid will be applied to the purchase price.
The retail area will also be carrying for the first time a complete assortment of product from 5.11 Tactical, one of the nation’s premier suppliers of tactical clothing, uniforms,
outerwear, footwear, eyewear, duty knives, tactical gear and holsters. Silver Eagle Group will now be 5.11 Tactical’s largest regional supplier of its goods.
A complete overhaul of the facility’s HVAC system will be completed, resulting in an increased air flow, improved ventilation, and an even safer and cleaner environment as the new system will eliminate virtually all airborne lead contaminants.
In addition, a new ceiling-mounted radial air diffuser will be installed which not only increases the air flow, but by being ceiling-mounted, provides additional room on the shooting range. This additional room will result in less congestion and significantly more room to move around.
These renovations should also lead to shorter wait times, as the new ventilation system will result in the lifting of restrictions on the use of lead ammunition. In the past, only three lanes per range allowed the use of lead ammo, resulting in some wait times for those wanting to use lead. Now all lanes can use whatever choice of ammo is preferred, meaning fewer lines and shorter wait times.
Comfort is the key word in describing the remodeled lobby area, as it will reflect an enlarged seating area with flat screen televisions connected to an assortment of premium cable channels, softer lighting, and an increased food and beverage assortment.
