This is my rifle... – I went to this place for a bachelor party recently. We got trained on rifle and range safety, learned how to use the sights, load the magazines, and then were shooting within 15 minutes. We fired a .22 ruger rifle - which is about as small as a rifle gets but it's still a thrill. Gunpowder and shots being firing gets the adrenaline pumping. I thought the staff was well trained, very helpful, and relaxed. The range itself is a small place, but surprisingly comfortable. I think there are 12 stations, and the depth of the range looked to be about 50 feet. The range is divided into two equal halves, the left half seemed to be for the amateurs & civilians, while the professionals, like cops, used the right.
The range is well managed and safe. I am recommending this place to anyone who's interested in learning how to shoot, or for those vets who just want to see if their aim is still sharp. Another note worth mentioning: This isn't just a manly-man's sport, two young cute ladies joined our group and shot with us. They had never shot before and had just a good a time as we did. In fact they shot better than some of the guys.
Editorial Review – Annie get your gun! Nestled between the Chelsea art galleries and the Flatiron office buildings, a shooting range frequented by hunters, cops, and general gun enthusiasts.
Annie Oakley – I am a HUGE fan of this place! The people are totally cool, responsible, relaxed but always looking out for your safety. Its in a great location, you can shoot for a few hours and then go shopping!
