“We couldn’t be happier to have Jeff join our Range Consultant Team,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Manager, Shooting Promotions. “His knowledge of what it takes to create and maintain a successful and safe shooting facility cannot be overstated, and that’s something that will bring unprecedented value to our range members, particularly those in the startup stages.”
“I am honored to be selected by the NSSF to join its Range Action Specialist Team,” said Swanson. “We are finding success in offering an a la carte menu of services that allows our clients to choose what services they want at the time they need it, and I am very excited to share my experience as a next-generation range owner and operator with NSSF members.”
