Though retail real estate development is generally in the dumper, boom times are coming for one property segment: gun clubs! Likely driven by the increasing risk of a zombie invasion and the Obama administration's factually-nonexistent but nonetheless believed war on the 2nd amendment, not one but TWO new gun clubs are on the drawing board for Cobb County. Both clubs sound pretty high-end, with construction estimates coming in at $3.5 and $4 million dollars. The club planned for Kennesaw is being developed by the sisters responsible for the Sandy Springs Gun Club & Range, a stylish, comfortable place for well-heeled gun owners to fire their weapons and then repair to lounge to enjoy snacks, leather couches and flat screen TV's.
