Although the staff can be difficult to deal with, the facility and experience were exceptional. The virtual shooting range is almost like the real thing. The noise, recoil of the weapon and the target strikes are amazing. We then went to the 180 simulator and had an experience like no other. The scenes and targets are almost real. We had... More

Best range in the area. Very high tech training center which utilizes great simulation. Unless you're in the military, you can't get this type of training anywhere else.

This range is run as efficiently as the store is--and that's a lot! Safety is the main thing it stresses, including watching a safety video before firing on the live-fire range. But I was fascinated with the virtual range. The "guns" you use are actual Glocks and Berettas that have been retrofitted with the pressurized gas that creates the noise.... More

One of the best "man" stores in the area. The live gun range is modern and nice to practice with your own gun. If you want to save some cash or don't have a gun you can use the virtual range. Then when you are ready try the virtual simulation room!!!

We have visited Gander several times in the last month for hunting supplies. The staff has been very helpful and friendly. They enlightened us on items coming on next sale flyer. Even in times when everyone stocking up on gun supplies, their shelves are pretty full. Their shoe and clothing departments are well stocked and sale items clearly marked.

This is a great way to introduce people to firearms. Get them into the range to practice gun safety and shooting techniques to make them understand how to handle a gun. There is a high-level of safety and professionalism in the academy and I highly recommend it to everyone.
