It would be a good thing. Industry magazines suggest that air guns, airsoft, 22 LR (still a touch expensive) might be a way to keep business as well as courses on maintenance, legal and tactical issues..
WNY doesn't have the high end ranges you see in other cities across the country. It is probably because the handgun density and difficulty in permitting doesn't supply the customer density.
There are plenty of ranges around. Some open, some not. Niagara I think is closed permanently. The original owner passed, then the person who took over for him mismanaged the place into the dirt in less than a year. (according to what I have heard. Take with grain of salt) I would be shocked if it reopened.
There is a post right on these forums with a massive list of ranges. It is 10 years old, so many of them aren't around and likely Cuomo did a bunch of them in with his COVID restriction nonsense, but here it is: WNY Gun Ranges List
