KANSAS CITY BUSINESS JOURNAL (Kansas City, Mo.) - Frontier Justice is going great guns.

Less than three years after breaking ground on its first store for gun enthusiasts in Lee's Summit, Frontier Justice is preparing to break ground on its second in Kansas City, Kan.

And who knows how far it will go after that.

"We are excited to be partnering with Frontier Justice in what we believe will soon be a national chain," Stephen Block, a principal with Block Real Estate Services, said in a release.

In partnership with BRES, Frontier Justice will host a grand opening ceremony in November at its new location, 1700 N. 100th Terrace.

On Wednesday, the company will break ground for the 33,000-square-foot facility, which will be on the east side of Interstate 435, across from Legends Outlets Kansas City and the rest of the Village West retail and entertainment district. Fogel-Anderson Construction Co. is the general contractor for the project.

Designed by Slaggie Architects Inc., the new Frontier Justice will include 18 shooting lanes, a firearms retail section, a fashion boutique and a private club.

Frontier Justice's Lee's Summit facility opened to strong demand in January 2015.

"We're thrilled to be expanding to the Kansas side of the metro," Bren Brown, president and co-owner of Frontier Justice, said in the release. "We look forward to sharing our message and mission with both sides of state line."

The company, which donates 10 percent of its profits to the National Christian Foundation, touts itself as "a next-generation firearms training facility that also offers a unique retail experience combining a hint of the West in an urban setting."

Frontier Justice was recruited to the area by Richard Napper, a consultant working on development of the 350-acre "Village East" property, which also includes the Schlitterbahn Waterpark, a 60-acre auto mall, and new headquarters for Dairy Farmers of America and U.S. Soccer's $75 million national training center.
