This was a last minute find and my ten year old son, my 24 year niece and myself had a blast...literally. Brian, our instructor was very knowledgeable and fun. He taught us safety and fun and the same time. This was a great experience because it was the first time I had shooted automatic firearms. My ten year old couldn't... More

We walked in on a Sunday Morning for "a la carte" menu of 3 machine guns. We were kindly greeted and after a short wait and pictures in the lounge area we were received by Matt, our instructor for the day. He introduced himself and told us a little about him before going over safety rules and answering questions. Through... More

Lots of fun, a wife variety of guns and an excellent instructor make this a thought provoking experience. The only reason I didn't give it 5 was that I thought the targets could have been better and more interesting. All in all worth a visit.

Wow so much fun and thank you to Matt and the staff for the professional and friendly service. You need to try the Tommy Gun I don't think you will get the opportunity to shoot this gun elsewhere

I went in there to find a particular type of ammo. I was looking for .45 long colt that wasn't the typical lead round ball, because I was tired of having to get rid of the lead buildup in my barrel. I was looking for hollow points (I can't remember what brand I was looking for) I was trying to... More

I've gone here quite a few times. It's nice, clean, decent selection for buyers and a number of ranges. Staff is nice and really knowledgeable. I don't know what's going on but workers are always "busy", even when they're not. The ranges are nice & indoor. Sadly I've have more than 1 friend, who weren't members, say they got looked... More

If this were a rating on just the range it would get 3 stars. It's an average shooting range with basic PISTOL only lanes. There are typically open lanes and the price is fair. They have family and ladies nights available. I was treated very well during my CHL class. The next few times I was in, they had no... More
