A settlement has been reached between a local gun range and its members. The $8 million dollar deal ends the class action lawsuit against the Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.
Some members filed a class action lawsuit in 2005, alleging among other things, racketeering, fraud, and breach of contract. At issue, according to court documents, were people who purchased memberships between 1997 and 2003 and paid substantially higher prices than those who joined later.
Some members paid six figures for a membership and an acre of land in what was supposed to be a housing development at the site. They never received deeds to the land and the development has yet to materialize.
More than 190 members have filed to receive refunds estimated at between $6 and $7 million dollars according to attorney Keith Greer.
