Aim Point Airsoft Shooting Range will close by January after opening just over three weeks ago across from Popeyes in the Montgomery Mall food court.
Today I spoke with an employee of Aim Point, who told me that “too many people just didn’t like it and complained.”
The arcade-like shooting range allows people to shoot Airsoft rifles towards targets with the opportunity to win a smart watch if two of three target squares are cleared with the 75 rounds that come with each turn.
Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and everyone is trained prior to and supervised during their game.
The Airsoft rifles are chained to the counter and have bright orange tips so that they are not confused with real weapons.
Aim Point originally told me they planned to stick around after the holidays and even had a location in Wheaton Mall nearly ready to open before the public outcry.
The Airsoft shooting range will close permanently by the end of the month.
News of its closing was first reported by Bruce Leshan.
