Alpha 1 Drop Zone has made the drop.

The business opens Tuesday in its new 6,000-square-foot space at 443 N. Maize Road, which is south of Central.

The store, which opened in 1991 and sells Army and Navy supplies along with sporting goods, camping equipment and firearms and ammunition, moved from 1,950 square feet near 21st and Tyler.

Owner Brad Yates says the extra space is going to make a big difference in what he can offer.

The new store will have a room for gunsmithing and gun cleaning. There also will be a room for training for such things as firearm safety and first aid.

There will be a grand opening May 16. Look for more details closer to the time.
