  • This is by far my favorite indoor gun range in the Austin area. The facilities are clean and almost like new, the stalls are spacious and there is plenty of room for people to walk behind the stalls as well (unlike at some other indoor gun ranges). Temperature, ventilation and sound absorption systems are so much better than at other places that I have been to. As a beginner, I sometimes felt misplaced at gun stores and ranges. Not here. Everybody is so friendly and helpful. The range officers had some great tips for me when I visited and they take their time to explain range rules and not just give you a piece of paper to sign. Nobody acted condescending instead every customer was treated with joy and respect. Overall the perfect range experience. And to top it all off: it is much more affordable than any other indoor gun range in the area.
  • So this is my only experience at a gun range, and I've been there about 5 times and have taken a beginner's class from an instructor there. The range itself is well designed and laid out, and it seems very modern and is comfortable to shoot at. I'm thinking of buying a gun for self-defense, but wanted to try a few out before making an investment in one. My family also wanted to learn to shoot, so we all participated and have shot at this facility. I've met the owner (or one of them at least) named Vincent, and he seems to be a very nice gentleman and seems to intend to run a good establishment. My problem is with the STAFF and how they treat/disrespect you from the moment you walk in. They treat you like you're an imbecile and are MOST overbearing and off-putting. When on the range, the RSO's will constantly get in your face and "correct" your behavior, even though you are following all safety protocol. Hey, I get it... gun safety is PARAMOUNT, and I wouldn't want it any other way. But there CERTAINLY is a better way of handling those situations than to get in your face and be overbearing about it. As another poster pointed out, they need to learn TACT and have some humility, or they're going to piss people off, which they've done to me on numerous occasions. Maybe Vincent is not aware of how people are really feeling about being treated that way, but I can't imagine that by this point in time. But, as evidenced by many reviewers here, many seem to like the place and would return. I too would return, but only because its close to me and I like the range, certainly not because I've been treated well by the staff.
  • My favorite range in/around town. I’ve been to many ranges in the area and keep coming back to Shady Oaks! The people are great, the place is clean (like really clean), prices are reasonable. Give it a “shot” you’ll love it!
  • GREAT Shooting range. Super Friendly Staff from those at the counters, to those managing the range itself. They were truly helpful and encouraging to everyone there!!!
  • Been here many times. the staff is wonderful and very helpful. some people feel intimidated by guns, but the staff is honestly there to assist you. I'm going to take a class as they offer gun safety classes. I have been to their shooting range a few times. I even purchased a gun from them. I would recommend anybody looking to get more experience with guns to come here, rent a gun and try out the shooting range.
