Stan Miller in the last week- Very nice shooting range........ everyone was very pleasant and friendly great place 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽........thumbs up across the board.
Anthony, I just wanted to let you know how pleased my father and I were with yesterday's reloading class. Charlie and Kevin were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, willing to help and answer any and all questions. It was a very rewarding class and I'm glad I took it. It really took the mystery of reloading away and showed us the basic steps to begin a new hobby. I look forward to getting setup and making my own rounds. And I really must commend Charlie on his willingness to help. Throughout the day he repeatedly told the class to reach out to him at any point in the future if we had questions regarding reloading, and that he would be happy to help, and depending on location he even offered to come to us to help with setup or other issues. You could tell that he was sincere in this offer because he is so passionate about his reloading. Also, this was my first trip back to Gun For Hire since you started construction on the expansion, HOLY SHIT!!! The addition is humongous! As I turned off Rt 46 I remembered that the range is quite close to the exit and I wanted to make sure I didn't pass it as I drove by....well there is no longer a chance of that happening! I saw the huge curved roof and said, Well that's gotta be it! Congrats on the expansion, I look forward to the completion and seeing the new range! Oh, and one minor complaint...I've attached a picture of a sign in the men's room...I think you'll need to discuss with Nappen because as you must know, slingshots are illegal in NJ... LOL! Take care and [...]
Aaron Traas a month ago- I've been shooting here since they first opened. 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. 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 sight 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!
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
This place is above bar with professional range officers... The staff is the best and Anthony C dream truly has grown..My history with Gunforhire started at the grand opening and saying to myself I can't believe in New Jersey we got this..All my dreams and Anthony's dreams came true...The pig roast was unbelievable the food for this event was 5 star... My tactical training was a dream with the best State police officer I have ever met... Never forgotten Brother... So thank you Anthony for changing my life forever... Maurice S - 5 Stars

The team at Gun for hire are professional and efficient at what they do. I really appreciate Elijah for having the patience to instruct and answering our questions. I definitely recommend this place for first timers, they have the knowledge and experience, plus a lot of cool guns. Jesus A - 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
Mrs. Peel said: As I'm exploring firearms this summer, I'm also having fun checking out ranges. I enjoyed my first visit to the Woodland Park Range this week - treating myself to a rare day of hooky from work! First of all, a big "thank you" to @Gunsrlegal - a super-nice lady and Woodland Park range member who graciously invited me to try out her full-size M&P (not the Shield, which I tried at TTC). She did that to make a point - that people with small hands don't need to limit themselves to small guns. Her hands are very small (even a squeak smaller than mine) and yet, with a small back strap, she has found that gun to be VERY comfortable despite the double-stack... and thought I would too. I was surprised! Yeah, it was easy to shoot, very comfortable. (Eegads... why are my choices expanding rather than narrowing as I had hoped? LOL) Anyway, while there, I also saw @Sandywho runs the Second Amendment Women (SAW) group out of that range. Only met her once before... so that was a pleasant surprise too! General Observations: Facilities - clean, contemporary design and bold black-white-red color scheme throughout the facility - a sharp-looking interior IMO! The range we were on was nice, too. The air felt good - not smoky at all. They have a tall counter behind the ports with lots of well-sized cubbies underneath to stash range bags (sheesh, why doesn't every range have that? I've been to some where you're just stashing them on the dirty floor or balancing them on too-narrow benches, etc.)... so, good interior design. The ladies' room was nice and clean. And YIKES, the size of that [...]
Hey Anthony, Hope you are doing well. I just did Urban Precision Rifle out in PA this past weekend & had such a great time. It was amazing being out in the fresh air & shooting that far. Your team did an amazing job putting everything together & teaching us. They took great care of us & it was so appreciated. I learned so much & can’t wait for the next level of Precision Rifle. I especially want to say how amazing Jimmy G. Is. I know you know it & I have said it before, but that man never stops. He is always there to chat with & help everyone & get us pointed in the right direction. No matter how many questions or how often we all bother him while he is slammed with 1,000 other things on his plate, he always takes the time to help & make everyone feel important. A lot of people may not see or even know what goes on behind the scenes to put all these classes together, but I just wanted to say all of his hard work & dedication to making GFH such an amazing experience for all of us doesn’t go unrecognized & is beyond appreciated. I have no idea how he does it, but you found an amazing person to represent you and your brand. Thank you for everything & for having such an amazing team. They just seem to get better & better. I feel more & more proud & privileged to be a member every day. Best, Steve K.
Hey John my name is Jason and I've taken Urban Pistol 1 & 2, and Urban Carbine 1 & 2. I'm not sure if you heard about the active shooter in the Bronx, at Bronx Lebanon Hospital earlier today... I just started my tour at the time and I was one of the first few cars on scene with gunshots ringing out and chaos with multiple people shot and one DOA at the time of my arrival. Armed with my S&W 5946 9mm service pistol, along with two extra magazines, a plate carrier and my trauma medical bag slinged across my body, I started to clear floor by floor with my partner and a few other officers. To make a very long story short I cleared every floor from the 1st to 17th looking for wounded, and clearing out civilians while this madman was still on the loose. At the time we had no known location of the perpetrator, one thing that I noticed which I found very weird was the fact that I wasn't nervous or scared... at all, besides the adrenaline coursing through me I was very focused and ready for anything that came at me. As you heard I'm sure, the perpetrator "neutralized himself" on the 17th floor before we got to him. I'm sending you this email to thank you for your classes and I know for a fact that's one of the reasons why I was on "operator" mode and I was able to stay cool calm and collected. I came to the realization that I was ready for this because of the training that I have attended and my mindset.I appreciate the rest of the instructors that also took [...]

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.
