Gun Facility Planned

A massive facility that will attract gun enthusiasts across the tri state area is scheduled to open next summer. Officials broke ground on the five-million dollar project last week in South Sioux City, Nebraska. The business is called Calibra8 and President Jason Rainboth says it’ll be the first of its kind in the region.

The 90,000 square foot facility will also house a 24 hour gym and cross-fit training center, as well as banquet halls and meeting rooms. Rainboth believes the area will eventually host regional and national competitions.

The company will also serve as a firearms training facility for local law enforcement and military personnel, as well as the public. Calibra8 will initially employ around 40 people, but Rainboth said they may eventually need 100 workers.
