Last month, Adaptive Shooting Sports celebrated its second year of being a part of the local merchant community. The retail gun shop and training center offers a wide spectrum of firearms, including hunting, competition, and self-protection. Over the past two years, owner and chief executive Cassandra Roth has brought not only a wealth of knowledge and expertise, but has also ingrained the business into the Pawling Community.
Located at 592 Route 22 (Suite 2A), Adaptive Shooting Sports is a unique approach to the traditional firearm store. “There are not a lot of stores that offer training as well as retail sales,” says Ms. Roth. “That’s a big thing that helps our customers, because they don’t have to buy guns somewhere that the staff might not be well versed. It keeps people educated.”
Adaptive Shooting boasts an impressive variety of firearms in their inventory to match a diverse array of needs. Primarily dealing in handguns, rifles, and shotguns, the business also employs an in-house gunsmith. Adaptive Shooting also maintains close affiliations with several gun customization businesses in the region, and special orders are welcome with no minimum charge.
The selection of inventory is constantly evolving, but regularly features firearm selections from Mossberg, Remington, Beretta, Browning, and Glock. Adaptive Shooting is also proud to be one of the few stores in the region that takes part of the Glock Blue Label Program, which offers discounts for law enforcement and first responders. In addition, Adaptive Shooting also carries ammunition, targets, cleaning supplies, concealed carry equipment, holsters, and an array of accessories.
In addition to the retail selection, the business takes pride in the numerous training courses offered. Classes are available for every skill level, ranging from basic introduction to live fire instruction provided at an off-site facility. Courses on long-range precision, proper gun cleaning procedure, and self-defense are also offered. Adaptive Shooting teaches courses to help obtain concealed carry permits and Utah Multi State Permits. “Training is a major part of what we do; education is very important,” said Ms. Roth, who teaches several of the courses. Private and small-group instruction are also available.
Adaptive Shooting Sports adds not only to the sporting community, but to the local Pawling community as well. The business has donated gift certificates and class instruction to events at the Pawling Resource Center and Christ Church on Quaker Hill. On Monday, December 4, Adaptive Shooting will present their first Annual Sporting Clays Invitational to benefit the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association.
Originally from Westchester, Ms. Roth has found the area’s diverse sports gun culture to be an ideal fit for Adaptive Shooting Sports. “There are so many different interests that we cater to. That’s why it is so important to not only know your product, but also to know your people,” said Ms. Roth.
