Shooter's World location to open in Goodyear as city's first indoor gun range

Indoor gun range and firearm retailer Shooter’s World is expanding into the West Valley with a new location expected to open in Goodyear this fall.

The location, which will be in the Goodyear Business Center at 13740 W. Auto Drive, is expected to bring 50 jobs to the area, according to the company. Its corporate headquarter also is moving to the West Valley city.

Shooter’s World operates two other locations in Phoenix and Peoria. The company has operated in the Valley since the 1980s and has been under the ownership of Phil and Lisa Roux since 2002.

"Shooter's World is a reputable and familiar name in Arizona's firearm education, retail sales and shooting sports,” Phil Roux said in a statement. “We've focused on serving the Valley for the last 20 years with an emphasis on creating a non-intimidating setting for assisting first-time buyers, educating families on gun safety, and creating a community of responsible gun owners.”

Vice Mayor Brannon Hampton is “excited to welcome” the company to Goodyear, which will be the first indoor gun range in the far West Valley.

“The residents are very happy to have them here. We love to see local Arizona businesses thrive and know that Shooter’s World will be very successful in Goodyear,” Hampton said.

While the range itself won’t be open until early 2022, once completed, it will include 24 climate-controlled and “state-of-the-art” shooting lanes offering customers “a safe and enjoyable environment for trying a firearm before purchasing, practicing their skills, and having a fun experience with friends and family,” according to the statement.

The 36,000-square-foot facility will include an education center for group and individual training sessions for “men, women and families of all abilities.” The location will offer concealed carry weapons permits, defensive mindset training and gun safety courses for children.

The retail space will include product displays and demonstration zones, “allowing visitors a hands-on approach to buying.”

Shooter's World also offers space for special events such as “corporate team-builders, bachelor and bachelorette parties with private bays on the shooting range, conference rooms, wifi, and A/V technology.”

The entity titled “Shooter’s World of Goodyear LLC” was incorporated on April 26, 2021, according to Arizona Corporation Commission records.

The building set to house the new Shooter’s World location was sold in Nov. 2020 by Arizona Healthcare Properties LLC to Goodyear Partners LLC.

Dennis Lynde is listed as manager of the Arizona Healthcare Properties LLC in county paperwork. Lyne is also  managing director at Cancer Treatment Centers of America, which operates a hospital in Goodyear.
