Sean Manning has been working on trying to open White Birch Armory since the beginning of 2019. The 16-lane indoor shooting range and gun store opened Aug. 1 in Dover just in time for pent-up demand from people seeking recreation and training.
The Purple Heart recipient spent eight years serving in the Marine Corps. He was deployed to Iraq as a reconnaissance Marine and scout sniper multiple times during his years of service. He founded the original store in Rochester in 2014.
