Amazing service , an exceptional experience and fast too. I was there for an hour and it felt like 15 minutes. Our instructor Micheal really hooked us up when it came to safety instruction and just overall . Thank You GFH! Jon D - 5 Stars

My girlfriend and I went today and we had a blast. This was our first time ever at a gun range. The place is very clean and everyone is friendly and helpful. They have a wide variety of guns you can choose to shoot with. We didn't have to wait long from when we selected our guns to when we stepped inside the shooting range. We shot a 9mm handgun and an AR15. Instructions were given to us by the staff who were extremely knowledgeable. Its very loud in the range so I had to ask the instructor to repeat certain things and never once did he get annoyed. This was such a fun activity and something the two of us will be doing again in the near future The only thing I will say is that this place is pricey, but I do not imagine an activity like this to be cheap no matter where we go to shoot. In total, it cost us $234 for an hour of shooting. However, this is something that we will be doing again and we'll make sure to come back to this place Vinny W - 5 Stars
Drove from New York for two hours just to experience something great and amazing. Totally worth it. Very clean and polished facility, which is the first thing anyone noticed when entering a place for the first time. The stuff was very professional and kind. All expectations met!

Came here for a friends birthday. Kenny was our instructor and he was awesome. He was very helpful and was able to keep me calm. I was very jumpy and he was patient and reminded me to take a deep breath. Kenny was mad chill and kept us laughing the whole time. Had a great time! Brittany F - 5 Stars

For 2 liberals at a gun range, this was a great experience. Packed with people of all ages, colors and sizes, the staff was helpful and prepared for a Fathers Day crowd. Our instructor Mike Adis was great with us, patient and meticulous in detailed instructions so that we felt confident. We'll be back again to take out more paper zombies. Mickey R - 5 Stars
Always amazing. Greatest staff I've ever encountered. Always a pleasure. JoeMProscia - 5 Stars
I came here last night for date night and loved it. From the minute we walked in, the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The only negative part was the wait. Now granted it was a Saturday night but the range is small so the wait was over an hour. They hand you a pager which you hold on to until it's your time to shoot however it only works in the vicinity. If you wander off to far, it will deactivate. They are currently in the process of building an expansion next door so that should cut down the wait time significantly. The shooting instructors were very nice and helpful. They had a lot of energy and were very careful with checking in on you as well. Safety is huge for them here which I like. At the end, our instructor took some great pictures for us and I just left with a positive experience. I definitely recommend this place if your in north jersey and looking to shoot some badass guns.

GFH’s excellent staff turned a scared little girl to a confident shot that’s already asking to go back.
I've been shooting here for years. I shot the first gun I owned here for the first time shortly after the range's grand opening. It's always a great place to shoot and take classes, but where they really shine is new shooters. I took my 8-year-old daughter to your range for the first time yesterday. We got to the 25-yard range, and my daughter was overwhelmed. The RSO's were super helpful and did everything they could, but it was just a loud environment, and it was too much for her, and she asked to go. So I obliged. Then Jimmy saw us leaving the range, gave us a couple new targets, sent us to the 50-yard range which was empty. He told the RSO to give my daughter special instruction with her new 22 bolt-action rifle. And after 2 or 3 shots where she had a hard time getting a good site picture, we had her shooting a 5-shot, 1.5" group. She was manipulating the bolt and the safety confidently, and had a great time. GFH's excellent staff turned a scared little girl to a confident shot that's already asking to go back. The only downside to this range is the wait times on weekends can get insane. Hopefully the expansion gets finished soon! Aaron T - 5 Stars
I hate guns. Never thought I would ever touch one let alone fire one. Told my husband we needed to do something fun for our 13th anniversary. Careful what you wish for. 1. It's immaculate. 2. The Staff are amazing 3. Shout out to Billy, you will forever be in my memories of touching and shooting a gun for the first time. Thank you for being so patient with me. 4. Nice to meet you Anthony, you have a fantastic establishment We had a great experience and are already planning our next trip, including our boys. This is where we want them to have their first gun experience. Laura S - 5 Stars

This place is awesome!! I drive all the way from Long Island every Friday to use the 50 yard range. Every employee is super nice and professional. Their facilities are always clean and well stocked. There is a proper waiting area and instructors for novices. They make it a family oriented vibe which you don't get from other ranges. The only range that my female friends feel comfortable enough due to the fact that there are plenty of other females. Also the diversity of people gives this place a unique feel compared to other comparable places. Can't wait till they open the extension! Archer N - 5 Stars
A TOP OF THE LINE range with dozens of courses you can take and a courteous staff that WILL help you every step of the way. Owner, Anthony Colandro sees to it that you and your family have an excellent experience exercising your 2nd Amendment Rights. Its a great opportunity to hone your shooting skills using a state of the art facility. Bobby L- 5 Stars
One of the best ranges I've been to in terms of staff friendliness, accessibility, and knowledge. I took my partner here for their very first shooting experience. We did the 15 min refresher and had the pleasure of working with Eli, who was extremely thorough in his instructions but also mindful of the time constraints of our session; the perfect mix of detail and efficiency. The only reason for the four stars over 5 is the wait time was pretty crazy and we some of the first people through the door. I understand there is a finite number of space but there wasn't really anything to 'do' while you waited. When you come, definitely do so on a day that you have open so you wont need to stress over the wait and can enjoy your time! Tips: - If taking an intro class, ask for Eli - Keep your day open - Bring your own ear protection if you're sensitive to loud noises - Bring a book - Take advantage of their extensive rental options
Came with my friends yesterday for bachelorette party and had a wonderful time. Kenny Hardworks was one of our instructors and he was amazing. We enjoyed everything, however we had 3 ports but only 2 instructors, we would have liked to have an instructors for each port as it was our first time at a shooting range. Bhumika M - 4 Stars
Hello Anthony, I apologize if I am sending this to the wrong email, but after searching through several websites for your personal one, I gave up. My name is Brian. I have had the pleasure of meeting you a few times at Gun For Hire and each time we've had pleasant conversations thats always left me leaving the range thinking (all positive). First, I am a 30 year old male. I grew up in a household that was not "anit-gun", but didnt include any family or close friends who owned any. We were from a "privileged area" of northern jersey so the topic of owning or shooting just did not exist. I got into shooting through a friends father a little less than 5 years ago. He took me Cherry Ridge to shoot some .22s. Since then, I have received my FID, purchased 4 handguns, 5 rifles, 2 bolt actions, 2 shotguns and my Utah CCW at Gun For Hire. Now, I am known by my friends as the gun guy; which I happily accept. Lucky enough, no one around me tries to convince me that "guns are bad." I am emailing you for two reasons, the first a sad story. I am the owner/operator of a youth sports program where we travel around the US playing in tournaments. In a few weeks I will be taking 2 of my top teams to Atlanta, Georgia. I spoke with my parents to let them know I will be taking my handgun with me and they seemed a little surprised and concerned even though they know I am a safe firearms handler, have my CCW, which is honored in that state, did thorough research on the TSA [...]
