I can’t say enough of good things about this place !

I have been a member here a few years and I can’t say enough of good things about this place ! The staff there are so very friendly right from the desk at the front door and to all who work there . This place is very well organized and with the supervision of the monitors working the ports you can’t help but feel safe and secure while shooting there. They are very helpful and also the staff behind the counters. And last but not least meet Anthony a very nice and kind soul,always helpful to all of us ! Josie S

I finally went!… complete satisfaction!

I’ve seen the videos, seen the claims from others... and I finally went! From the incredible facilities, the more than 250 choices of firearms, to the extremely friendly and knowledgeable personnel: Gun For Hire is simply an incredible range and an experience of a life time that you can repeat over and over with complete satisfaction every single time! Special thanks to Anthony Colandro, Matt and Sandy! Gun For Hire rocks!!!!

Believe the hype….

Believe the hype.... I have known Anthony Colandro casually for several years... Not only though his podcast, but from him providing valuable personal advise and counsel. I don't get to the range very often and live about an hour away, and while I have stopped in before to drop off toys for tots or sign a petition, I had never had the opportunity to shoot in his range. Recently, I needed some "mail bonding time" with my 14 year old son, who I felt was getting desensitized to the repsonsibility of handling a gun... thanks to video games, particularly Fortnite... and I thought was ready for his first firearms experience. Despite an hour drive, and likely wait because if the holiday vacations, I knew there was nowhere else that I would want him to have his first live fire experience. I started my shooting years ago at Ray's Sport Shop, which is long out of business, and was the traditional, "old buys club" experience... Not particularly welcoming to newcomers or kids, and dark, dingy and dirty. Gun for Hire at Woodland Park Range could not have been more different from Ray's... Family range, incredibly diverse crowd, friendly and helpful staff, clean facility, 6-star worthy... I could go on and on. Most impressive was that Anthony took time from his busy schedule to greet my son and even give him a "Challenge Chip" to learn firearms safety. I think my son even convinced my reluctant wife to give it a try next time. If you are within driving distance, make the trip, you won't regret it!

We had such a blast!

We had such a blast. We loved the power of the Barrett 50 BMG. Just an awesome experience. We've been coming for years here. Michael was great. The staff was great. Anthony always says hi and ask how everything was.

The owner and staff make everything so pleasant…

The owner and staff make everything so pleasant. Upon my first visit they welcomed me by saying welcome to the family. There was a very warm friendly yet happy energetic vibe. Everything was neat and clean, the staff was fast paced and organized. It was very therapeutic for me to destress from my toddler. Dont be intimidated if you never went shooting before, the staff is very helpful, patience, and informative. I recommend anyone and everyone to try them out such a nice place!

Professional and Extremely Fun!!

My girlfriend and I wanted to learn how to shoot pistols and we found “gun for hire” on google the establishment was well kept and the staff practice courtesy, professionalism, and were very respectful! J-kawn assisted us and was very informative and laid down a great foundation for us. We had a blast learning our first time. We will definitely return and bring others along next time.

I had the best time ever!

This was first time ever at a range. I had the best time ever! The staff was friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and attentive. The list goes on. Overall we felt comfortable and taken care of. Our instructor Leopoldo was simply the best! We will definitely return and even consider some of their classes.

From the moment we walked in…

From the moment we walked in it was a great experience. The Owner Anthony was very welcoming. Once we filled out the paper work we selected our guns and went to the range. The instructors were very attentive and knowledgeable. Leopoldo was very helpful and gave us great pointers. Looking forward to going back and learning more. Thank you GFH

check-in process was super smooth….

My husband and I came here as first time shooters. The staff are nice and professional and check-in process was super smooth. Our instructor Henny was very patient to answer all the questions we had and he made things very clear for us. We were allowed to take our time. It was a fantastic experience and we would recommend this place!

Best day ever!!

Best day ever!! This is our second trip to Guns for Hire and it was such a great day. John W not only ran the floor, he went above and beyond to help out when needed, his knowledge and understanding of weapons was impressive. The entire staff stepped up to help and guide when needed but John truly saved our day when we had an issue with our weapon. He got it fixed and explained what had occurred. A true teacher!! Trust me they are worth the trip from anywhere. We came from Long Island and will be back. Facility was clean, beautiful indoor range.

It is a very clean and safe facility…

If you are going to go to a range in the Tri-State area, you must go to Gun for Hire. It is a very clean and safe facility with very knowledgeable employees. Today, our Range Master was John M who was the most helpful yet and that's saying a lot given that I have always had a good experience.

I truly can’t say enough about how much I really enjoy going to Gun For Hire…

I have been to quite a few shooting ranges but I truly can't say enough about how much I really enjoy going to Gun For Hire in Woodland Park, NJ. Every single member of the staff form the people who greet you at the entrance, to the range officers, right up to the owner himself - everyone is eager to help, incredibly knowledgeable, polite and friendly.  The facility itself is immaculate and I love that they have 2 separate indoor ranges, one 25 yard and one 50 yard. Special thank you to Manager Jimmy: Thank you so much for assisting me with my sons rifle, finding the problem effortlessly and making the necessary adjustments on site. You're the best!

Can I give this place 6 stars?

Can I give this place 6 stars? This review is for our semi-private session with Tom Giordano. There's 4 of us (2 friends have never tried shooting before). I reached out to Jimmy who connected me with Tom so we were coordinating before the holidays on what our options are, how much it would cost and how many people they can accommodate. Thank you for accommodating all of us on such short notice. I have been shooting before but I found it helpful and informative to have the classroom session with Tom. He emphasized safety and the mechanics of the gun and how to hold it properly to minimize recoil / movement. This helps in precision shooting. I also learned what my dominant eye is so that's what I use to aim better. During live fire, tom would check in on me periodically and give me little tweaks to better my aim. My grouping is pretty good at 15 yards so he recommends next time I come in to have a private session so I can work on holster draws, and more fun targets. With my friend's membership, we ended up paying $70+. The membership is totally worth it - you get guest passes, 12 free gun rentals, discounts on port rentals, gear, ammos and targets. I would love to continue working with Tom to better my skills.

Parking is abundant which is always my concern…

First, if this is your first time here, the process is simple and quick. Parking is abundant which is always my concern when looking up places in NJ. The front desk explained the paperwork that needed to be signed and often joked with us as we were filling it out. This is well organized for first timers and the staff here makes it very welcoming for guests. Second, the staff behind the register and the weapons were so patient and made sure that we understood the different options. I was a bit confused on the packages they offered and had to make a last minute change. My friends came in a bit earlier and were already on line but the staff managed to squeeze me in with them so I can fire with them and I was so grateful for that flexibility. Third, the instructors couldn't be any more clearer and helpful as we were getting oriented to the weapon. Concise instructions and useful walk-through on how to use the weapon safely and how to act while on the range help made this experience smooth, comfortable and easy for all the members in my party. Helpful reminders on how much time we had on the range rather than surprising us by kicking us when our time is up off was greatly appreciated. And lastly, afterwards, one of the owners stopped by and chatted with us. He genuinely wanted to know how our experience was before we left. Despite our conversation lasting for only 5 minutes, we all left feeling like actual valued guests. In the area and want to learn and fire some weapons safely? Check this place out!!

Love GFH and their team!…

Love GFH and their team! As a new gun owner I've went to a couple ranges in my area to see what's around and prices but GFH is definitely in my opinion the best and cheapest. No sign up/club fees for basic membership, super cheap if you go with a friend or two but even by yourself it's not bad. Can't comment on how much it would cost for rentals but the targets are the cheapest around so if you need to get everything in one spot you're not paying an arm and a leg for range ammo. Now they're adding 60+ more ports apparently, there should be no wait times at all. Also all their wait times are over calculated so if they tell you and hour it's really about half that time.

So. Much. Fun.

So. Much. Fun. I had to give this guy my number three times because I forgot to bring my membership card. Not complaining, he was really cute and I was secretly hoping that he'd have memorized my number by then so he can call me to hang out sometime. I hope he has good memory! Lol We rented a 40 caliber gloc and a 45 caliber gloc and since we have this coupon, we were able to rent both guns for the price of one. Tip: come on a weekend and ask about this promo, come on a weekday to avail of the discount. My friend bought earmuffs and glasses so she didn't have to rent hers, but rental for these cost a little over $7. So if you know you'll keep coming back, it's worth buying your own. My friend also bought fun targets online so we didn't have to buy from the range. This time, I was able to try 15 yards and 20 yards without sucking at it and it was pretty fun. Someone in the range was shooting a desert eagle so I was a little distracted. The instructors made sure everyone was following protocol and it's safe for everyone in the range to shoot. Michael was pretty helpful advising my friend how to hold the gun to have better aim. They're all very friendly and helpful. Besides working on my groupings, I'm starting to practice pacing my shots so I can aim and shoot with a time limit. Next time I'm going to book a personal instructor so I can advance my skills. It's a great skill to learn - safety above anything else and have fun with it! They have a wide range of guns to practice from. I personally like pistols but they have rifles too. Absolutely NO [...]

the best facility I have ever been to…

This Gun Range is without question the best facility I have ever been to. The cleanliness, the environment, the staff you just can not compare this to any other gun range. It's more like a family entertainment place like Disney or Great Adventure.. But with guns! lol Whatever agency does their marketing and website is spot on. All info is easy to follow, graphics are amazing and I saw they also have several languages on their site as well. I'll be coming back with more friends and family. This place is my new safe space. Thank you Gun For Hire!  PS: They have discounts for ANY Law Enforcement, Fire, EMT, Doctors and Nurses.. basically anyone who goes into danger when others are safe at home.  This is why I love these guys!
