  • Fantastic experience. I've never held or fired a gun except for my dad's 22 rifle many years ago. I went to the store with my girlfriend and we talked to three different salesmen. All three were very kind and knowledgeable and were happy to make suggestions and answer questions. It is important to note that I didn't know that much going in and none of the employees were condescending to us. After asking a lot of questions we went to the firing range to test the suggestions and walked out a while later with a Smith and Wesson M&P 9. I am very satisfied with the service, store, range and the whole experience the location offers.
  • HONEST REVIEW PROS: 1. Great Customer Service 2. Welcoming Environment 3. Very Knowledgelable staff 4. Best Indoor Range I Ever Enjoyed CONS: 1. Gun Prices Higher Than Normal 2. FFL Fee $50 3. MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP FEE $39.99 Then WHY 1 STAR if there is More PROS than CONS. Well because at the end of the day, how much money you save or spend matters. I bought FULL Size HK45 from here for $1150 where I could have bought it for $799 Brand New from GunBroker. Well I did not make the same mistake again: I bought Daniel Defense MK12 Brand New ALL black for $1700 from GunBroker where they sell it here for $2200 including all fees. Liberty Arms in Hopewell charges $20 for FFL where here pay $50. Why? Membership fee should be $19.99 It is not outdoor range it is INDOOR. But Almost $40/Month. Well at the end of the day I care about how much I save. Be sure to check prices around before purchasing any Supplies or Guns from Here.
  • The staff here is phenomenal. You can tell the folks here enjoy what they do. They always seem to be in great spirits and have high energy. The shooting range is fun and the range officers keep things safe.
  • Love this place! Been a member for almost a year and anytime I have an issue, on range or off, I get immediate and friendly service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff abounds. If there is anything they can't do, they will point you in the right direction to meet your needs.
  • Helpful and friendly staff at the gun rental counter. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the rental process. Greeters at the front were very helpful in explaining the store layout and rental procedure. Range was quite well ventilated and quite well lit. Target machines worked exceedingly well and had a good amount of options. Rentals were in good working order. Range instructors were vigilant with range safety as was the man policing spent casings with the broom. There was a small wait time however it was well worth it.
