Overview
More
Gander Mountain Academy is the first-and-only firearms facility to offer this life-like simulation technology to the public. Experience our fully immersive simulators that are so cutting-edge and lifelike that until now they've only been available to military and law enforcement agencies. We believe that the right to use and bear firearms comes with a serious responsibility to be educated and safe. With our highly experienced instructors, unmatched training technologies, and a learning environment where all skill levels are welcome. For virtual range or simulator use, you don't need to bring anything. If you plan to use the live-fire range or take, you'll need to bring your firearm, hearing and eye protection, and plenty of ammunition.
