Welcome to NorthernSTS first Newsletter in 2017
Welcome to NorthernSTS first Newsletter in 2017. As a quick background, 2016 was the year Northern Simulated Training Systems Inc. (NorthernSTS) opened. The beginning of the idea for the Virtual Gun Range began from an introduction and instant friendship between Tom and Brandon.
They both share the same passion for firearms and the ever growing popular sport of target/action shooting. They also want to help educate the public’s perception of firearms. This led to a discussion that there were very few places for the average person to gain exposure, education on firearms or training with guns. The Company’s foundation was formed between their two visions and after many hours of conversation, research, and late night debates, NorthernSTS became a reality in Georgetown, Ontario.
The Virtual Gun Range,
The virtual gun range idea was eventually settled upon to allow shooters including, families, friends, those of all ages to experience a shooting range in a safe and controlled environment, not worry about the expensive cost of the ammunition as well as health concerns of possible lead exposure and being an indoor gun range allows shooters to participate all year round. It also allows for those young and old a way to experience the entertainment of shooting moving and reactive targets in a safe manner.
THE BEGINNING OF NORTHERNSTS
NorthernSTS shooting scenario
We have evolved alot over the year and today offer action shooting such as practical shooting, steel challenges, trap/skeet shooting as well as numerous skill building challenges where up to 4 shooters can compete against each other or see how they compare with other shooters around the world.
We have over 100 different scenarios to choose from, each scenario having multiple challenges to keep you in the best shooting condition or entertained. Scenarios range from skill building drills (e.g. working on accuracy, speed, muscle memory, lateral thinking, sight picture or combination thereof) to target sport competitions that range from beginner level to advanced. Each of the scenarios provide real time results based on performance which allows for great entertainment or friendly competitions.
