Hello my name is king Stevenson and I would say this place is a really great place for first time gun buyers and people who want to learn how to protect themselves But there is one employee that racially discriminated me and wouldn’t even let my buy or shoot at this range because I am a African American male and he was giving me a very hard time on two times of me going to this range so I would just say watch out and be smart about how u talk and walk in this place thank you

I'm very grateful for this store that is committed to customer service. No pressure sales and answers all your questions. Very clean, organized, and well stocked. There gun smith is very good, knowledgeable, and helpful. In a day when customer service is waning, they do a great job. They are very much worth the drive!

Just went in for ammo and an interest in purchasing another gun. The staff are so knowledgeable and helpful I am now going to purchase 2 more. The staff are so patient in showing the handguns and all the features and want the customer to be sure they find what they are looking for. I will be bringing them another customer and looking forward to trying out their shooting range

Outstanding shop. I’ve done business with these folks for several years. Everything from training to gunsmith services . Being in the customer service industry for years I recognize a quality organization when I experience it. I especially want to thank Keegan and Jeremy for their help and professionalism

Recently been using the range at Smoking Gun Worx and took the concealed carry classes this past weekend and can't say enough good things about the store staff and Haze who gave the CCL class. It was extremely refreshing to work with people who had a passion about what they did. I would 100% recommend going to the store and checking out what they have in the classes they offer and I would also highly recommend getting Haze as the instructor.

I went for Mother's day mother daughter night. Wonderful dinner and then range time with NRA certified instructor. We enjoyed that so much I went with my Husband for date night to celebrate our anniversary. They had the place all decorated with beautiful lights and served really nice dinner on China. We met two other lovely couples and enjoyed an hour of range time. I loved it! So much better than dinner and a movie. State of the art facility and great staff absolutely the best place to learn and play.
