We came for practice on a Saturday afternoon.The parking lot was FULL. We chose to have lunch down the street,hoping that later we could park in their lot.There are 20 or so slots there.After lunch there was a spot open so we went in with our gear.
We signed the release form and was to be put on a waiting list,as the range was FULL.
!/2 HOUR LATER,we were up.Grabbed 3 targets and paid for our lane.My buddy shot his 9 mm Glock first. I send bullets down range with my Glock 21 and my 38 special.
He hasn't shot a gun in 20 years! We both had issues with accuracy.
After we shot all of our handguns,I took a break.5 minutes later,the employee found me in the pro shop and asked me to get back on the range,because there were people waiting to get into the lanes.
OK,"Hurry up and shoot!" We did.

I was charged a total of $35 for 2 of us to share a lane + 3 targets.
There is usually not that many people there.
It was still a ton 'o fun!
A group came into the lane next to me with a 300 round box of 9 mm cartridges.
They were happily blasting away when we ran out of ammo.
The range still had a waiting list when we packed up our gear!
We shot a lot and my trigger finger is sore.

We walked into the pro shop and browsed for a concealed carry holster.They were out of stock for a specific Glock 9 mm . That's OK,we will be back again!

By the way-photos in the range are NOT allowed.One reason that was given is that there are undercover law enforcement people there that do NOT want their photos taken.My phone stayed in my pocket.

When you buy a NEW gun,you need to clean it B-4 firing. I found that out right away. The shells got stuck in the cylinder of my revolver right away.Range officer Richard, had to dislodge them for me-embarrassing.
Well ventilated and you can use FMJ cartridges.No frangible ammo needed.Lead bullets OK in a .22
If the R.O sees something unsafe,you will KNOW IT.
There are a few rules there.
(Always) point your weapon down range.Load at the firing position in the booth.
Un- box your weapon at the firing position-not inside the range-ever.
Kick or sweep empties down range.Do not shoot the target holders.
"Ears and eyes" required or they will be provided.

One more thing: Photos and videos are NOT allowed there.
Reason: Undercover law enforcement shoots there.

Targets are a buck each.We used up 3 for the both of us.
You may buy ammo there and you can rent guns and buy only their ammunition.

We had a special need to informally demonstrate bullet resistance of a custom laminated panel and these guys went out of their way to help us out. For a reasonable fee they allowed us the use of 3 lanes, plus all the protection equipment and instructional guidance to our Japanese customers (it was their first time at a gun range - any gun range!) They even had the desired caliber (50 cal) pistols and ammo available for rental on a moment’s notice. Afterwards, they assisted with cleanup of glass shreds which we offered to do... Really nice and professional staff!

This is a nice indoor shooting range. The staff are safety conscious and have good control of their range without being heavy handed and work well with new shooters. For those who want to practice shooting from a draw there is an option to become a member and qualify to fire after drawing from your holster. The prices here are also very affordable. This is my favorite place to shoot.

I've been here several times. First and foremost, it is a gun shop with an incredible inventory of weapons, ammo, and gear. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. What I like most about Champion Arms is their shooting range, which is open 365 days a year. If you don't have your own gun, they have a vast selection to choose from for rental. They provide ear and eye protection.

I think they have about 6 shooting lanes, with adjustable distance targets. It's awesome to have a place to practice shooting so close to where I live.

A 1st-time at any indoor range, ever. Normally I avoid other shooters, but this was a friendly bunch. Professional too. I observed all levels of shooters on the line from beginner to advanced, young to old, and everything in between. I was in and out in under an hour and fired over 150 rounds within that time. The price was very reasonable for my time there. I brought my own targets, but they have targets for sale. There is tape in every booth to secure your target to the target backer. The air quality inside the building was very good. I felt safe on the firing line and nobody interrupted my shooting. I saw they had many guns for rent to try out if you wanted that. Parking was crowded and tight, so leave large vehicles at home.

I enjoyed the class. I had purchased a handgun, but had no knowledge of how it worked. I have only used rifles before. I was able to learn how to use my handgun and also get in some practice at their indoor shooting range. It was a ladies only class with a female instructor. That was really nice.

This shooting range is staffed with individuals that are very knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to help. Nice lanes for practicing, well lit, and spacious. I really enjoy going to this range.
