GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Businessman David Comstock plans to transform part of the Seaway Marine Center in the Bernard Bayou Industrial Park in Gulfport into a multi-million dollar gun range.

The Gulfport City Council on Tuesday amended local zoning rules to allow shooting ranges in the area.

Plans include eight lanes of shooting range and a training area.

The business will include a retail store with guns, ammo and other merchandise. A classroom and archery range will be on the second floor.

Comstock says $4 million to $5 million will be invested. The business will employ about 24 people.



Comstock hopes to have a grand opening in less than nine months.

Comstock is negotiating for property in Stone County where he hopes to build an outdoor range.
