      Amazing historical artifacts and stories, you cannot miss this!
      HIGHLY recommend going on this experience if you are a history lover. Pete has built an amazing repository of not just historical artifacts but also the stories tied to each of them. He is highly knowledgeable and very flexible on what topics we delved into based on our interests. And getting to fire several of those historical weapons was the cherry on top! We cannot recommend this experience enough.

      Totally worth it!!
      The guy that owns the business was also our tour Director. He was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of World War II munitions and ammunition. He had an encyclopedia knowledge. He was very patient with our level of expertise in shooting. We would highly recommend this experience for anyone who is even remotely interested in World War II or firearms in general.

      A definate must do if you are anywhere in New Engand. A very RARE opportunity!
      A wonderful way to spend the day learning the history of WW2 firearms. Hands on conversation with Pete, a super knowledgable person who is passonate about sharing his knowledge. We learned a lot about what the soldiers had for weaponry, and how they operated. At the end of the conversation, we went to the shooting area and were taught proper technique and were able to experience firing some amazing weapons.

      Not what we expected..
      This was a very unique, informative and interesting experience, and it was cool to be able to hold and eventually shoot some of the fantastic guns in the collection. Pete was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the guns he spoke through. Unfortunately for our experience, the duration was not the advertised 2 hours. From the time we arrived to the time we left, it was over 5 hours - and that was omitting the opportunity to shoot the last gun (which was unfortunate because it was the one we were the most excited about). This was a birthday gift to my fiancé who really enjoys the history of WW2, but it was meant to be a portion of our day and ultimately took a huge chunk of it. We began at 11am, with the understanding we would be out at 1pm. We planned to get a late lunch afterwards, so we were both quite grumpy and hungry by the time we left around 4pm. Additionally, the first 3 1/2 hours were spent in the “vault” where Pete’s guns are kept and displayed. It was a small room, with limited space for him, us and the two other participants there to sit - so my fiancé ended up standing on the cement floor for Pete’s 3 1/2 hour discussion of the weapons and their history. In fairness, we were offered a seat once at the beginning but with the extremely limited space and expectation that the discussion would only last an hour to 90 minutes decided to stand. Thankfully, one gentleman from the other group offered for me to sit after the 2 1/2 hour mark. Upon arrival and until about 2pm it was a cloudy day. By the time we were finally able to get out on the range, it had started raining pretty hard. Also, Pete instructed each of us to load our weapons, rather than simply asking if we wanted to do it ourselves or just have him set it up for us. Finally, when loading the M1 Gerand, it was my fiancé who cautioned me to watch my thumb rather than Pete, but a moment too late as it caught my thumb (there a phrase ‘Gerand thumb’ for this reason) and caused me to start bleeding. Pete offered me a bandaid, but no antiseptics to clean the cut. For us, the sum of all the parts made it an overall negative experience. I think for the right person with the right expectations, this is a really great opportunity to learn about and interact with historically significant weapons - but I caution you to come with a full stomach and an open day. I also offer the suggestion to Pete to either adjust his advertisement or to shorten his presentation prior to the shooting. Im sure there are those who have the time and interest, and would happily come back after shooting to hear more specific and personal stories of the guns.

      History with a bang ‼️
      Very knowledgeable, has many working weapons. Is extremely professional and maintains safety of individuals while firing the weapons. Very personable and considerate of customers while maintaining dignity and respect. I highly recommend spending the money and time.

      An amazing experience for everyone.
      This is by far one of the best experiences I have ever had. Pete was very knowledgeable on the history of his firearms and WWII in general. As for the shooting portion he made sure that safety was the priority and that my fiancé and I understood the weapons that we were handling. I enjoyed every minute of my time and felt it was very well spent. I would 10/10 do it again and recommend the experience to anyone that is interested.

      A fun informative time.
      Pete knew so much, not just about the weapons but also history and specific stories about certain ones. He is very helpful on the range, patient and fun to be around. I went with my brother-in-law and nephew. We all had a blast and learned a lot.

      Amazing experience!
      We had such a great experience at the WWII small arms experience. Pete was such a nice guy and is incredibly knowledgeable on the weapons we went over from the Era. The collection was amazing and shooting was a blast. I would highly recommend this trip

      WW2 History in action
      It’s for real World War II history buffs! There is an impressive collection of World War II, hand, guns, and rifles plus submachineguns.

      Amazing experience
      Absolutely an amazing time we learned so much more than any history class could teach and got to fire weapons that my Great Grandfather who have used while fighting in Japan. Amazing time I recommend anybody that has a interest in history and firearms to do this.

    Pete was very knowledgeable about the guns we shot as well as a great local guide for things to do on our trip. We had a great experience and would come back for other experiences.
