“We’re honored to be awarded a Five-Star rating from NSSF,” said Keith Ruter, Owner of Smokin Gun Worx. “What seemed to be a monumental task of collecting data and photos, improving protocols and implementing new management strategies to make the grade, has propelled us into a business of excellence our customers are proud to be a part of.”

“Not only have the owners and staff at Smokin’ Gun Worx taken a ‘please everyone’ approach by creating programs and services that accommodate a wide range of customer needs and shooting hobbies, they’ve done so by emphasizing the one thing that’s often hardest to get across to those who haven’t handled a firearm before: just how much fun this all is,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail and Range Business Development. “In doing so, it’s become a bonafide gathering place for this community, and for that we’re very pleased to award them our Five-Star rating.”

NSSF’s highly respected Star-Rating Range Program works to encourage ranges of all sizes and locations to excel. Applying for rating requires answering a comprehensive questionnaire and business owner self-evaluation of the facilities, staff, community outreach and other criteria. Ranges that appear to meet the criteria for Four- or Five-Star rating receive an on-site evaluation by NSSF staff. NSSF member ranges that merit a Three-Star rating are recognized for being a part of the Star-Rating range family and are provided guidance to improve their facilities and achieve the higher two ratings. For more information, including instructions on how to apply for NSSF’s Star-Rating Range Program, contact Zach Snow at zsnow@nssf.org.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that it has awarded its highest Five-Star rating for range excellence to Smokin’ Gun Worx in Forreston, Illinois.
