The number of lanes you should consider having depends on your market, your opportunity, and budget. Small ranges tend to be 4-6 lanes and medium size businesses have between 6-12 lanes. At 10+ lanes we recommend dividing up into two separate bays with separate operations and ventilation systems. This allows for better overall range management. On slower days one bay can be in operation while the other is dormant, thus saving on power. Two bays allow one to be dedicated to scheduled classes while not interfering with normal shooter traffic in the other bay. It also allows for shooting to continue during maintenance or cleaning of the range as the entire range will not have to shut down. Last, it provides an opportunity to separate pistol shooters from the louder report of rifle fire.
