  • I wouldn't recommend going to Silver Swords but if you do make sure you have the exact cash on you. When I didn't he kept the extra & told me it was a tip.  more »

  • My wife and I had a beginner class of Archery here. The place looks a bit sketchy but Rob was very nice in greeting us once we arrived. He was very detailed and great at explaining things. Despite the lengthy teaching, we feel we got a good amount of shooting in during our 2 hour session. I would warn those looking to have a social outing and just play around, that this place is probably not a good fit. Overall great value, educational, and fun.
  • Took my family here for a night of fun and our experience was just the opposite. Started off okay but Rob continued to get frustrated and impatient when we didn't get it right the first time. This was the first time we have all ever even touched a bow. We felt so uncomfortable by this that we chose to leave halfway through. Aggressive military style of teaching and it felt more like work or school. Would say if you want to become a warrior then try this place but if you simply are going for a fun time I would avoid this place. In 45 minutes we didn't get to shoot a single arrow. Not my definition of a good time. Beginners beware!
  • Myself and my fiance took his knife-throwing class. We came in amateurs and left.... still amateurs, but with a MUCH better understanding and skill set. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and is seriously intent on you learning the craft. Is he a ponytail-wearing Ren-Fair know-it-all? Yes. But that's what we were looking for when learning how to throw a friggin knife. When we screwed up and our knife did not stick in the target, he didn't sugarcoat it. He told us what we did wrong. From that, we got better. If you want to chug some beers, chuck some axes, and have a great night out with the lads, Silver Swords Armories would not be on my list. But if you want to actually learn the proper technique for whipping that weapon correctly at a target, I would highly recommend Rob LaPier.
  • Best teacher ever, seriously the guy tells you everything you need to know about the sport, and you know it's not bullshit cause you hit the middle of you follow his advice. 1h30min is the right amount of time 30$ for it is not cheap but reasonable, and groups are max 6 person so he can give the attention you need. I felt like the place was small, but I think you can go outside during summer.
  • If you want to learn the proper way to use weapons here's your place. Rob is a great teacher with vast experience.
