Listen, and you will learn. Watch, and you will learn. Shoot, and you will leave there your first day like I did, an official Member of Gun For Hire. KEEP COMING BACK.
Had a friend come over from overseas, where gun ownership and shooting are illegal. So it was there first time handling a pistol and rifle. I have shot before mainly in California and went with my friend as this facility requires 2 people to be together the whole time. The facility is very well run, with professional and courteous staff, filling out forms, Orientation, selecting weapons and instructors at the line to assist and help with the first shots from each weapon were handled well. Note, we went on the weekend and it was quite busy, about 1.5 hour wait time in line, but the experience was worth the wait.
Came here with my girlfriend today for the first time, it was so much fun, the staff was super friendly and helpful, thank you to Gabe, Frank and Johnny for taking the time to teach us how to load, empty and correctly shoot our guns. We will definitely be back!
First time going to a gun range and it was a great experience. I had a good time and Carlos did a great job at explaining how to load/unload my gun. I was very nervous in the beginning but by the end of it, I didn't want to leave. Two thumbs up :)
Amazing place with exceptional staff!
Good friendly staff very helpful!
GREAT SORA CLASS WITH ANTHONY. HE IS BY FAR THE FUNNIEST INSTRUCTOR EVER... ILL BE BACK FOR MY ARMED CARD SOON.. THANKS A LOT ANTHONY
Great place to bring family and friends to learn to shoot.
I have gone here with friends and neighbors since it opened. A fantastic place for everyone of all ages over 10 (I believe or 12). A politically neutral place that is there just to have fun and, most of all, to learn about the proper use of firearms and self defense. I have given gift baskets and gift cards for this place and man did I score big with family and friends when they went there! Fantastic courses by experts and awesome party events. Thank you Gun For Hire for helping me feel safer as a female! Warmest Regards, LindaD
What a fantastic experience my husband and I had here yesterday. Going to a shooting range has been on my bucket list for a long time and I'm glad we finally went. We got to the range at about 5:30 and it was jam packed. The staff was incredibly kind and calm considering the volume they were dealing with. The woman at the front desk (who's name I wish I could remember) told us there would be a two hour wait but that she would see if the owner could squeeze us in earlier since they close at 8 on Sunday and she wanted us to take advantage of our full hour. In walks Anthony (the owner), and what a kind and considerate person he was. Not only did he make sure we were able to shoot but he took the time to speak with us while we waited on line for our guns. He runs an organized and safe operation and you can tell everyone working for him is happy. I can't begin to express how professional and knowledgeable the staff was (also a testament to Anthony). We will definitely be back and look forward to bringing friends with us when we do!! Thanks Anthony and the awesome staff at Guns for Hire!
I have not been impressed with a business in this way as long as I can remember. From the diverse crowd to the attention to detail this is a top notch business in general. The number of women I saw here was remarkable. I think it was due to the comfortable, safe, personable, and easy to navigate environment the owner has set up. This will undoubtedly be a business that will be duplicated. All I saw was brilliance.
Today was my first time ever shooting a gun, and Carlos was super helpful! He showed me how to properly shoot and when it came time to shoot the desert eagle he stood by my side and talked me through it! At first I wasn't going to shoot the gun but he insured me that everything was going to be fine! I got both shots on the target. Carlos is great! On top of great service, Ramdel and Gabriel were also amazing helpers! I felt happy and at ease when all 3 of the workers made sure that I had a good first shooting day! I will 100% be coming back to this range and I look forward to see them all. Besides the couple of workers I mentioned, gun for hire also has an amazing owner! Anthony was such a happy person, I felt 100% at home at this range. Guns that were shot: glock 19, ak47, desert eagle

This was my first time shooting and my husband as well. I wanted to surprise him for his birthday and I'm so happy I picked this place. They gave him an extra target with birthday candles which was very nice! Our instructor was Frank and I can't stress how amazing and comfortable he made us feel. He helped us the entire way but gave us space when he thought we were ready. I will def be back just because of frank and the rest of the staff. The owner even came out and welcomed us knowing we were new. I'm considering getting the year membership because we loved it so much! Thanks frank you made our experience amazing!!
Had a great time. This establishment was well organized and clean. Hassle free for sure. Nice atmosphere, and very diverse. Will definitely return, especially with those great prices.
Today was my first time going to Gun for hire and I had a really great time. The staff members Brett and Eli were very helpful throughout the whole time. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.
First time here, very nice shooting range! Great employees (Brett & Eli) very helpful. Will definitely go back! Worth the drive and price.
Took the Holster Draw class tonight. Tony was a great instructor and the class was exciting and informative. The hands on was such a confidence booster. Next step...Urban Pistol 1
My husband brought me here for a surprise Valentine’s Day date. I was a little apprehensive at first—feeling intimidated by the VERY loud sounds of gunfire. However, as soon as we met our instructor, Anthony, my worries immediately went away. He was very thorough with his teaching and very understanding of our level of firearm knowledge. Even after my husband and I started to feel more comfortable at the range, he kept checking in on us and making sure we weren’t having any trouble. The staff overall, from concierge to the instructors, were excellent. The level of safety precautions they put in place really put me at ease. We will definitely be back!!!
