Clark County Shooting Complex turns small profit


Following a barrage of advertising, the Clark County Shooting Complex, which lost money in fiscal 2013, made small profits in three out of the last nine months.

“Good news,” said the leading advocate of the complex on the Clark County Commission, Tom Collins.

The complex, which was supposed to be self-sustaining, has lost money every year since it opened in 2009. In February, the county commissioners approved a $30,000 marketing plan and saw new customers and more revenues the past two months.

In the last four fiscal years, the shooting complex has lost a total of $2.85 million. Those losses have varied from year to year. The highest loss was $1.1 million in fiscal year 2013, while the lowest was $367,992 in fiscal year 2012. Fiscal 2014 ends July 1.

In November 2013 and February and March of this year, the park showed a total profit of nearly $45,000 but the other six months showed losses of nearly $385,000.
