Park City Gun Club

Desperate times call for desperate measures when it comes to bonding with a tween. Right, moms? An impulsive reluctant visit (right after school one day) to The Park City Gun Club, per Cindy's recommendation, turned into a spectacular mama-daughter lovefest revival. Yes, we're talkin' guns and firearms. Who would have guessed? Well, investigating a gun range was on my list to do anyway since moving to Utah, so it inevitable...
Located right outside Promontory Ranch off the frontage road to Home Depot in line with I-40, The Park City Gun Club was practically down the street. Well, sort of. My friend Cindy decorated it, so as you can imagine, the interior was in very good taste a la mountain elegance. Inside, find rooms and spaces for classes, training, gun rentals, simulators, indoor ranges, etc. 
What a phenomenal time we had. We listened, observed and learned, pumped rounds of ammunition, let off steam and contemplated life's lessons. Turns out my baby girl, 11 years old, is a slick sharpshooter and one tough amazing cookie.
We love the expert, top-notch, enthusiastic, friendly staff. The instructors are awesome with kidsminimum age to use a firearm here is 10 years old. As a parent raising kids in Summit County, tween girls should absolutely have proper firearms instruction!

  1. Hi Lisa,
    My name is Michaela and I do the marketing for the Park City Gun Club at C&S Creative. I was googling the Gun Club and came across your blog and thought you had some great shots of your daughter at the gun club! We are currently looking/compiling shots to run in the Park Record paper, activity guides and other publications and I wanted to ask if you'd be interested in letting us use a photo or two of yours, and if so, how much you would charge?

    You can reach me at

    Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
