Arena Gun Club offering free lanes and rentals on its 8th anniversary

A business is hosting a major event to celebrate another year of business following the tumultuous economic situation local establishments have faced for the past two years due to the pandemic.

Celebrating its eighth year of operation, the Arena Gun Club will be offering free lanes and rentals for one day in an attempt to give back to the community that has supported them and allowed them to maintain their businesses and operations during the pandemic.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 7 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“It’s a gratifying feeling,” said Arena Gun Arena general manager David Alcacio. “We have come a long way since opening our doors and have been dedicated to establishing the Arena Gun Club as an all-inclusive space for safe recreational shooting. We strive to offer the best resources and tools to educate the community about gun safety.

“It’s our way of giving back to the city that has kept us going all these years,” Alcacio said. “The only difference this year is that we’re working with the sheriff’s department to come up with a new family activity for the community to try.”

Alcacio states that gun shooting is something people can learn for both protection and just for fun.

“Gun safety is a serious matter,” Alcario said. “Whether it’s for self-defense, competitive shooting, or for fun, it’s imperative for us in this industry to educate everyone who walks through our doors about proper handgun etiquette.”

One of the main attractions of the event will be that people will be able to use the main virtual gun arena simulator.
In conjunction with the Webb County Sheriff’s Department, the virtual simulator is used to provide realistic training for law enforcement.

The simulator will be available in their conference room and open to the public from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

According to Alcacio, the virtual simulator is used to provide training and realistic scenarios to law enforcement agencies.

“It contains various options for shooting and shooting drills,” Alcacio said. “Perfect for all ages, the simulator is a fun and competitive way to practice before making the decision to try out a live firearm. It also provides the opportunity for those interested in a career in (the app of the law) to experience real-life scenarios and the importance of making decisions in the line of duty.

The General Manager of Gun Arena says that on this year’s eighth anniversary, they are proud to celebrate considering how the company has weathered turbulent times during the pandemic.

“It affected us the same way it affected the rest of the local small businesses in town,” Alcacio said. “Nevertheless, we are careful to prioritize the health and well-being of our customers and employees. Given the effects of the pandemic, Arena Gun Club is setting new goals to help not only the citizens of Laredo, but also local businesses and communities recover. Through participation and organizing events focused on community outreach, we encourage everyone to stop by and have fun.

For people who may never have been in the gun arena, Alcacio says it’s time to pay a visit and take advantage of many activities they will be offering for free during the anniversary.

Other things they will provide during the birthday include free hot dogs, popcorn, cakes and soft drinks. However, the general manager says people should arrive as soon as possible as they will only be available while supplies last.

Sweepstakes, promotions and more will be announced during the event.

Throughout the year, the Gun Arena states that it will bring new events to the region. Alcacio said he plans to officially open Arena Archery this year, which will be Laredo’s first indoor archery range. The general manager says he hopes to open before the end of 2022 and encourages those who are interested to keep up to date with the gun arena through their social media.

“I would say stop in for a tour and take advantage of the free amenities available for that occasion,” Alcacio said. “We are proud to be Laredo’s top rated line of firearms and invite all communities to spend and celebrate eight lucky years in business with us.”
