  • If you are new to shooting or are trying to introduce a new shooter this is NOT the place. They are very stressful and will intimidate most. I am a combat veteran and extremely experienced shooter. I ...  more »

  • The range here is fantastic. Everything from the target system to the floors are superb quality. The lanes are very spacious and can comfortably fit two adults standing shoulder to shoulder. The staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful I've ever met at a range. Not only the targets big, extra thick, and made of some kind of magic quality extra strong paper, they're also free! However many you want of whatever kind you want. No ROF cap, incredibly well lit lanes, and a ventilation system that made me question if my rounds even had powder in them.
  • I bought my first gun from this store and I feel so horrible I forget the person's name that helped me through the entire process. John maybe? He works with boyscouts. He took his time and was completely patient (I had not known anything about guns) He showed me several different options, compared them all, stayed within my price range. He was extremely knowledgeable, honestly I don't know how GanderMountain has him because the rest of the employees do not seem to care nearly as much and seem much more impatient and non-attentive whatsoever.
  • I have been to this store many times and always had excellent service. The best was when I took a Yeti ice chest back that I had bought at a store in Alabama. The assistant manager was helping me. My reason for returning it was that I realized Yeti had another model that I liked better. They did not have one in the store, but the manager saw one online for a lot lower price that what I had seen. It was a clearance price. He tried to order it for me, but was unsuccessful. Here is where it gets really good. When he opened the cooler he noticed that the wire basket was missing. I had left it in Alabama. He went ahead and gave me a full refund anyway, as long as I promised to get the basket to him. I had my sister ship it directly to the store. I noticed some negative comments about the range. I have used the firing range and found the staff to be very helpful. They are a little more serious, due to safety, so some people may think they come off as less friendly, but that was not my impression at all.
  • All you need for almost any sport under one roof. Gun range is amazing but there's no designated high power rifles ir shotgun lanes like in many other ranges. Staff is really nice and prices are good.
  • As I'm writing this review by proxy I'm not sure how much validity there will be to it, but I hope it gains traction at the store level. My Mother recently patronized your location today to use a firearm for the first time. Unfortunately I, someone who holsters a firearm on my waist everyday for work, was not able to attend with her, as I love the quality of the range. But I gave her as much instruction as I could and she was meeting a friend there who was proficient, so I felt confident in her ability to do well. It turns out I wasn't wrong in feeling confident in her ability, it was the very abrasive sales associate that helped her initially that should have worried me. This sales associate was a male, the sales associate on the receipt is 605568. I'm not sure who was logged into the Till to take payment, but there was a very lovely young lady who walked the sales floor with my mother in an effort to select a pair of safety glasses. When my mother approached the sales counter she stated to the male sales associate that she was there to "shoot" but was "corrected" by him to say she was there for "knitting". OK I get the humor, I actually chuckled, then I thought about the jab. My mother has never fired a weapon before and this armchair commando has already made her slightly uncomfortable. My mother then informed the sales associate she was there as a new shooter and stated she needed ammo. The sales associate inquired what type. My mother did absorb a ton of information about operating a firearm in a very short amount of time so she did not recall caliber off the top of her head. She stated to the associate "I'm not sure the caliber, but I will be shooting a Glock 19". The sales associate then stated that it was 9mm, and that "you should try to remember that". Well thank you captain obvious. I'm sure now that you were so rude she'll have no issue remembering, so thanks? It's armchair commandos with this know it all attitude that give this activity a bad name. This type of attitude drives people away and makes it difficult to have a culture of education, as opposed to an elitist exclusionary "my free-float rail costs more than yours" toxic environment. The sales associate should have taken the time and been excited that we, shooting activist, got another one. Rant over. I'd love some followup and hopefully an apology. If not, I get it, I'm another faceless set of fingers behind a keyboard. Edit- The store manager did followup and apologize for the incident, he also guaranteed to look into the situation. Willing to change my rating depending on the outcome.
