  • I have only been to a few shooting ranges before, but this range exceeds all the others in sales, associates, service and range. The Academy consists of 2 ranges and offers rentals, instruction, sales...  more »
  • My husband and I drive 2 hours just to visit this store. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. A couple of weeks ago we stopped in. As we were looking around the gun store, we were approached by Tim O. He asked if he could help us. We had previously been looking at buying the Springfield Saint and asked if they had any in stock. They did not but instead of walking away, like has happened to us at some big name retailers, Tim asked more questions. To save all the long details, he spent about 45 minutes with us, showed us several rifles, and even showed me how to properly hold a rifle. We left that day pretty much knowing that we now wanted to purchase an AR15. Today, we went back to make our purchase and were again helped by Tim. He took the time to explain what accessories were the best choice to purchase first. I ended up purchasing a sling and a case. The gun came with a forward grip, which Tim took the time to install based on how I held the gun. He also installed the sling for me. I can't stress enough the great customer service I receive here. You will definitely not get this personal service at the big name stores. Thank you guys at Colonial! I couldn't be happier and more confident that I purchased the perfect gun for us!
  • They have decent prices on guns but the range fees on top of can't bring in rifle ammo is a pain. They charge way to much and there aren't any other ranges in or outside for that matter that you can shoot on. Would also get more business if you charge one fee for lane rentals, but only allowed two per lane. It's pricey when you have to purchase ammo, targets, possible eyes and ears and then lane rentals. Before you even shoot you're looking at $100
  • A great place to shoot. Last visit there was a wait list(~25 min), thankfully they have a great showroom with plenty of products to look at. All the people behind the counter are very personable and are very quick to strike up a conversation. The gentlemen at the lane rental counter were very busy but did not hesitate to stop what they were working on to answer questions. Will return soon A+
  • Great range, love the atmosphere in that area. I don't like how everytime I speak to an salesperson about buying a gun or accessory the conversation revolves around shooting a person, some of us like to just shoot targets and do have constant amped up fantasies about someone breaking into our house and having to protect our families... But you can tell a lot of their demographic are in that boat. If it truly will help me hit my target better, I'll buy it.
  • Without a doubt, CSA is the nicest, most impressive indoor shooting facility I've ever seen. It's big, it's well-staffed with knowledgeable and personable(!) professionals, the members-only area has an outstanding "country club" feel, and the inventory is diverse and comprehensive. It's definitely a case of "you get what you pay for," in the sense that you're going to have a hard time finding an indoor shooting facility that's as clean and well-appointed as CSA.
