TSA is looking for a spacious indoor firing range, convenient to LaGuardia
The training may be part of the expansion of TSA’s VIPR program, through which it monitors an increasing number of non-airport checkpoints throughout the US.

TSA wants to hire the use of a firearms range within a 20 mile radius of LaGuardia Airport in Queens, NY, to which it could send its employees and DHS personnel for quarterly qualifications and firearms training that it expects would consume nearly half a million rounds per year.
“The range must be indoor and possess a minimum of 10-15 firing points and must be able to accommodate a qualification course distance minimum of 1.5 yards and a maximum of 25 yards,” says a TSA solicitation released on July 1.
