In Our Library, You Don’t Need To Keep The Noise Down. Gun-Rentals

Why Rent A Firearm?
The Dilemma.  How many times have you wanted to purchase a new firearm?  How many times have you hesitated because you had no way of knowing if that dream firearm was really right for you? Or if the investment you would make to purchase a firearm would be money well spent?

The Answer
Wouldn’t it be great to shoot that dream gun at a range?  To see if the sight picture was to your liking?  To feel the mechanism working?  To experience the recoil? To have a chance to shoot something you had never really considered before?

Face it:
There’s no substitute for spending “quality time” with that handgun, rifle, or shotgun. You’d be more confident as you made your final choice, wouldn’t you?  Of course you would!  Renting a firearm makes that possible.

And There’s More!
OK, that’s the serious side of rental. Just don’t forget the fun side! Squeeze off a number of rounds just for the sensation of shooting something different. Increase your knowledge of a variety of firearms in the most practical way possible – by shooting them!  Impress your friends and business associates every time you say “Now let me show you something w-a-a-y cool!”

Why Rent From Woodland Park Range?
That’s easy.  Woodland Park Range offers a stunning selection of the firearms you most want to shoot.  Our rental-only Gun Library covers it all from basic revolvers and semi-automatic pistols to high power rifles and tactical shotguns.  And you’ll find them all in an exciting environment that will change your perceptions of a “shooting range” forever.

Why Is Woodland Park Range So Different?
That’s simple.  Our brand new facility was designed by shooters under the direction of an internationally-recognized Master Training Counselor with years of shooting and instructional experience.  It’s the result of study and collaboration with the finest architects involved in creating safe, attractive, and practical shooting environments.  Yes, you can bring your ultra-picky Aunt Thelma here.  The Woodland Park Range will pass even her white-glove test!

We are the shooting professionals’ choice.  Our ranges bring out the best in any shooter.  There are no distractions, no ‘incidentals” to get in your way.  Our Range Safety Officers are the best in the business.  You’ll find them unobtrusive when you need to concentrate and extraordinarily helpful if you have a problem.  It’s run by professionals.  And it adheres to the highest standards of safety, cleanliness, and accessibility.

We’ll Show You Everything You Need to Know!
Woodland Park Range is home to people of all skill levels.  The common element?  They all want to learn what shooting – good shooting – is all about!  That’s why we offer a wide variety of classes led by certified instructors and we have firearms in our fabulous Gun Library.  From a four-hour First Steps Pistol class to a four-day Executive Protection program, you’ll find it all at Woodland Park Range.  So come to learn.  Come to rent.  Come to shoot.  And leave totally satisfied that you’ve experienced the best!

Renting and new to shooting?  You must take our “On Target” One-on One Course!  It is 15 minutes packed with all the information and techniques you will need to confidently walk into Gun For Hire, shoot some lead down range and hit the target.

The One-on-One Target Course is Just $25 (for up to 3 shooters).

The Fine Print:
Firearms in our Gun Library may change occasionally.  What won’t change is the fact that we offer the largest selection of handguns, rifles, and shotguns in various calibers for rent in the Tri-State area.  Non-members pay $20/hour for any standard firearm. Silver and Gold Members pay $10/hour. Rentals are available for all shooters so virtually anyone can rent “to try, before you buy!”  Your first time here?  Just fill out some simple paperwork, give us your driver’s license, and the firearm is yours to shoot.  Want a change of pace from your own firearms?  Trying to decide which gun should be your first, our rental program will give you an opportunity to try a variety of options.  So come to Woodland Park Range to see the latest.  Or have a long lunch.  Impress a client.  Entertain a friend.  Introduce someone to the shooting sports.  Or just have fun “putting some lead down-range.”

Note: No holster drawing while using our firearm rentals.

There’s no excuse for not dropping by.  We’re conveniently located at the intersection of Route 46 and McBride Avenue.  Don’t forget that travelling with firearms in New Jersey is challenging at best.  Don’t get caught committing that unintentional felony.  Leave your firearms home and rent from us!  All Gun Library rentals are for one gun at a time.  You must purchase ammunition for your rental from Woodland Park Range.  (Our insurance company insists and there are no exceptions!)

Note: Anyone with a New Jersey state issued (FID) firearms ID card can rent alone anytime.

Adult Shooters (Male and Female):
If you do not have a New Jersey state issued (FID) firearms ID card, you must bring another adult guest with you to be able to rent firearms. All adult guests must possess a valid, state or government issued photo ID. See www.gunforhire.com for latest terms and conditions.

Active and Retired LEO:
Active and Retired LEO can rent firearms as long as they can prove they are active or retired LEO and are in possession of their own firearm(s).
