Out of State? Out of Country?
You’re All Welcome!
All you need to shoot is a photo ID and a friend! When entering you will be greeted by our hostess. After a quick photo you will be off to choose what gun you would like to rent. We have everything you need including targets, ammo, eye and ear protection and even a 15 minute course to make sure you are comfortable with the firearm. Once in the Range you will feel excited and energetic! Our Range Safety Officers will see to it that you will never feel nervous or embarrassed. We pride ourselves on our incomparable family environment and incredible staff and we have the awards and ratings to prove it. Come on in and experience it for yourself or you could ask any of the previous 1.2 million visitors!
Welcome to the Only 6 Star Range! No other Range Compares. Guaranteed!
If this is your First Time visiting the Woodland Park Range, here are a few facts that may be helpful along with some recommended courses we think you would enjoy.
First Time Shooting at the Range? Allow us to answer some questions for you:
Are you a Members Only range? No. We are open to the public 363 days out of the year. We are closed only Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
What do I need to shoot?
Each person MUST come with a Valid Government issued I.D. (examples: Driver’s License, Passport, etc.)
Any Male coming to the Range alone to rent a firearm MUST have either a Firearms Identification Card (F.I.D.) or come in with a companion. Any Female coming to the Range to rent a firearm can come alone, without a Firearms Identification Card or a companion if they choose to. We have everything you need to enjoy your time at our range.
What do I need to do when I get there?
Please STOP at our Concierge Desk. We have some paperwork every NEW Person to the Range MUST fill out before you can continue. We will then take your photo and confirm your Government issued I.D. (This step is for EVERY First Time individual visiting the Range. You only have to do this for the First Visit). Each individual must have identification with them.
How does it work?
Once signed in with our Concierge, please make your way to the Retail area. The Retail area has two lines: Members Only (“Rapid Fire” line) and Non-Members (which is our “First Shots” line at the right side of the Retail area). One of our Professionals will guide you through your options of Training, Port Time, Eye and Ear Protection, Targets, and Firearm Rental choices if necessary. We will ask to hold an I.D. while our rental guns are in use. I.D.’s will be returned upon the return of our rentals.
If I am New to shooting, have never properly shot a firearm before or it has been a while since my last experience and I could use some proper instruction, will you teach me? Yes. Here at Gun For Hire we are all about firearm safety and proper handling of firearms. Please let us know at the register if you are a New Shooter or Inexperienced. You MUST take our 15 Minute Intro course. (Video games, Shooting in to the Woods and the Boardwalk doesn’t count!)
How many people are allowed in a Port?
The maximum number is 3 people in a port at a time. More than 3 people will need an additional port (Even in our spacious Big Man approved Ports). *Some exceptions may apply.
How much will it cost me?
The price will vary depending on the numerous options you may choose. An visit for first time shooters is: One port (One hour of time in the 25yd Range = 1 Person), One guest (Same port), a 15 minute Intro Class, set of eye and ear protection for each person, targets (3), One 9mm handgun rental (Handgun), and one box of 9mm Ammo (50 rounds) will cost approximately $150 ($75 per person). Please keep in mind we have over 120 firearms for rent! Variations in firearms and ammunition can affect pricing.
Can I choose more than one gun?
Yes. We allow only One Rental Firearm in a Port at a time. If you choose two firearm rentals, one will stay at the Retail area until you finish with your first firearm. When finished, one of our Professionals will clear and lock the firearm in the case for you to return to the Retail area for your second firearm.
Can I take Pictures/Video?
Yes you can. We ask you keep your photos to within your port. Please try to not get other shooters in your photos/videos. Most importantly, if posing with the firearm, keep the Muzzle Pointed Down Range and your Finger Indexed Off the Trigger.
Can I reserve my ports before I arrive to the Range?
No. We do not reserve ports for our guests or Members. It is first come, first serve. *Some of our Range Memberships do allow priority positioning on the queue system. Please see a Gun For Hire Professional for more information about our Memberships.
I would like to come down with a group for a party/outing, do we need to call in advance and schedule our visit?
No you do not. If you are coming to the Range with less than 15 people, you can come in and purchase what you need to have fun with your party. If you plan on coming with more than 15 people we recommend you contact Jimmy@gunforhire.com to work out any details needed. We can also offer training, food, and other accommodations for your group outing.

8 years of age and older to shoot at the Range. (No children under 8 years old will be allowed inside the Shooting Range).
13 years of age and older can shoot one of our rented handguns with an adult over 21.
18-20 years of age and older unaccompanied by an individual over 21 can rent long guns only.
Do I need to bring anything to shoot with me?
We have all of the supplies you need to shoot including over 120 firearms to rent, ammunition, targets, ear and eye protection and more!
