GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Businessman David Comstock plans to transform part of the Seaway Marine Center in the Bernard Bayou Industrial Park in Gulfport into a multi-million dollar gun range.
The Gulfport City Council on Tuesday amended local zoning rules to allow shooting ranges in the area.
Plans include eight lanes of shooting range and a training area.
The business will include a retail store with guns, ammo and other merchandise. A classroom and archery range will be on the second floor.
Comstock says $4 million to $5 million will be invested. The business will employ about 24 people.
Comstock hopes to have a grand opening in less than nine months.
Comstock is negotiating for property in Stone County where he hopes to build an outdoor range.
