Gun Shop, Indoor Shooting Range Planned for Old Burger King Site

City staff noted that the former fast-food restaurant has fallen into disrepair.

The Wentzville Board of Aldermen will hold a public hearing at its regular meeting Wednesday night, Nov. 13, for approval of a redevelopment of the old Burger King property on Veterans Memorial Parkway and Pic Parkway.

The applicant, Thomas Schlansker of Wentzville, wants to remodel the building for use as a gun shop and indoor shooting range, which will require approval of a 4,854 square foot addition to the existing building.

With potential noise being an issue, city staff noted in its recommendation to the board that no residences are located closer than 1,350 feet to the proposed shooting range. The closest structure is the former U.S. Fidelis building now occupied by Roberts Marketing Group.

Great idea. All citizens need to learn to shoot safely.

Look for an update soon. There's not just one new shooting range coming to town -- there are two!
