PrairieFire completed its acquisition of Front Sight from Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved the plan to purchase the business on November 29, 2022, and the sale closed on December 2, 2022.

Effective immediately, PrairieFire is taking over operations of the former Front Sight facility and implementing a four-month transition plan where existing training classes will continue for all legacy Front Sight employees under the current fee structure and online scheduling.

Sal Siino, chairman, PrairieFire, said, “Bankruptcy is a tough process for all involved. We are grateful to the staff who held the business together, the members who have not given up and the local community and leadership who have welcomed and encouraged us to make Nye County the home of American shooting. If there is any saving grace, PrairieFire was able to get a plan of reorganization approved where we purchased the Front Sight business and exited bankruptcy in about six months, an incredibly short time for a Chapter 11 proceeding. We can now put our energies toward making PrairieFire Nevada the greatest shooting experience in the world.”

The company said in Spring 2023 it would launch PrairieFire Nevada and outline the initial phase of the business, which includes three core pillars, and open its membership program.

PrairieFire Nevada will center around training with its Q Academy training curriculum, specialty shooting experiences and a competition series open to all levels of shooters. Future phases include further range development, introducing more gun ranges, a member’s clubhouse, gun storage and gunsmithing services, and dining and lodging through its sister company, Stagecoach Outpost.
