    Default New Indoor Range and Pro Shop in Fairbanks

    I would like to let everyone know that Precision Archery will be opening a new indoor range and pro shop in Fairbanks. We will be located on the corner of Lathrop Street and Van Horn Road (one block east of the old Kings Nock Archery). The tenative opening date will be Monday, March 21. Our lease paperwork is currently in the works, so i will keep everyone updated here.

    We will Carry Hoyt, Mathews, Mission, and Martin bows, Easton arrows, as well as a full line of the most popular Accessories.
    Our goal is to have a fun, family friendly environment and the knowledge and customer service you expect from a pro shop.

    We will be building our inventory over these first couple of months, and I would like to take this opportunity to ask everyone what products and brand names they would like to see on the shelves. Feel free to post any suggestions that come to mind.

    I look forward to serving the archery community, and fullfilling all of your sales and service needs.

    Just to let people know, I know Andrew and he knows his stuff, he is the finest tournament shooter in the state. He is very knowledgable, especially when it comes to setting up bows, tuning, and shooting. When I need advise and help with my shooting or equiptment he is one of the guys I seek advise from, And I am not a beginner by any means. Good luck Andrew, I hope Fairbanks comes out and supports your shop. Harry Bates


    P.S. A few of the products I believe in, especially for hunting,

    B-Stinger, Trophy Taker, Ripcord, Spot-Hogg, Slick-Trick Broadheads, Carter releases, Scott releases, Simms Products, other good products....Montana Black Gold, Shuttle T, G3, NAP, to name a few.

    Any plans for a video archery range? I think it would do so well in Fairbanks during the long winters.

    Congrats on the the new shop, a quality shop has been in need in the interior for a long time.

    Thanks for all of the encouraging posts. We are definately excited about getting our doors open as soon as possible!

    We will have a 10 lane, 20 yard range with a couple of butts on rollers for kids and beginners. Unfortunatly, we will not have a Techno/Dart System. Maybe a few years down the road....

    Congrats Andrew! You don't have an excuse to not show up at Bear paw occasionally though.

    I took my Hoyt maxis in the other day to have Andrew fix a couple of things on it and he did an awesome job. He fixed it all up for me and let me shoot on the range to make shure it was what I wanted. I bought the bow from Kings Nock and the never showed that kind of treatment. Once they had your money and you had the bow you were just another customer. I defenitly recommend you stop by precision archery and check it out.
