  • Very friendly staff who also made us feel very comfortable even though it was our first time. A must do when in Gold Coast!  more »
  • Had never fired a pistol before, so went and tried two different guns - a small calibre Walther to start, followed by the Glock 9mm. The staff were helpful and encouraging, and stepped through the pro...  more »

  • Had an amazing time as part of a big weekend. The instructer was great for a first time shooter and the seasoned shooter in the group had a lot of fun. Well worth the price tag
  • Excellent. Me and my partner shared a package... neither of us shot a gun b4. Staff where friendly and happy to help. Such an awesome experience. Was quite pricey but soooo worth the adrenalin rush. Must have tick for the bucket list - thank you ;)
  • Horrifically overpriced to the point where it's verging on criminal. The actual cost of the ammo in their packages is worth a couple of dollars at most, and for what they're charging for ammunition you could literally buy hundreds of rounds from a respectable gun range/shop. The blokes running the place are massive condescending tools too. A mate and I went in and were met instantly with a condescending tone from both the blokes at the desk. Unbeknown to them we've both been shooters our entire lives and we decided to play it as if we hadn't shot before... Bad move guys. They tried to take us for a ride using BS catch phrases like "that's the same as the gun police use" and that one is a tactical assault style (pointing to the Roni kit which is nothing more than a Glock with a stock). We had to leave before we drowned in the BS and thievery in that joint.
  • Similar to a review before, written by Jnk zkan. Bad service and pricey. Would have considered going back if it was not because of the older guy's attitude.
  • Love this place. Professional, well guided and secured. Bit pricey else would have gone more and come again. Paid $750+ for 50,45 cal, AR and 9mm package. Was worth the birthday gift my lovely wife got me. Thanks
