The online booking was easy. A beginner package firing an AR-15 with my son and I. The safety video and quiz was helpful in preparation for live fire exercises. James was great in orienting us to the firearm. The range was excellent! Well ventilated and it wasn’t too cold or too hot. Recommend the range and it’s friendly staff to anyone and everyone looking for a great experience!
A very educational, enjoyable experience.
The Online Reservation System was easy to use and allowed us to make a last minute booking. Instructor Andrew was interesting, detailed and very helpful when needed at the Range. Overall we had a great fun learning about gun safety and range shooting. Planning to go for more practice soon.
Everything about the experience was amazing; from the staff, to the trainers, everyone made me feel comfortable & confident while in the range. I will definitely be back for more. Pam was an amazing instructor and you could tell she knew what she was doing. It’s great to learn the basics from truly experienced professionals.
The presentation and hands on training before entering the range was done very well. Andrew made the experience simple and enjoyable.
Thanks to Andrew and Chuhn who likes to also go by Andrew we had a great time
Like the 7 day free with package, teacher was thorough in making sure new students were prepared and responsible and safe.
The place was somewhat chaotic when we arrived for our lesson and it would have been useful to also have some print-outs of the points made in the training video to refer to as reference. I expected more attention from the instructor, considering we are beginners.
The introduction video is great. Well put together. My instructor, Chris, was patient and kept things simple. Always reminding me about safety and proper handling until it started to become second nature. He made some adjustments to my grip and my finger position on the trigger which helped in accuracy. I could not have asked for a better experience and feel more comfortable in moving forward to obtain a Handgun Qualification License, which I would do through your facility. He also recommended to try out a few weapons during my trial period to help determine a good first gun purchase.
Had an excellent experience with the trainer, Joel. The training I received was quite thorough. It prepared me adequately to step into the range and fire the weapon. I hadn't fired a weapon in 22 years. His training made a significant difference in the outcome between then and now. I was surprised to find that I was able to stay fairly on and close to where I wanted to be on the target. The whole experience with Gilbert Indoor Range turned out to be a very pleasant one and I'm looking forward to coming back more regularly.
Friendly staff, good facilities, good tuition.
Great training. Very informative.
intro class was good. shooting was awesome and will be going back
Good stuff, very professional. A perfect class for all beginners!
The instructor was great and very clear with his directions. The staff were friendly and helpful. Over an awesome experience!
Handguns are new for me. They make me nervous, but there I was at Gilbert Indoor Range in a class with Andrew. I had taken the HQL course elsewhere and had that bit of experience, but it wasn't enough. At the end of Andrew's detailed, step-by-step training, I was far better educated, confident, and comfortable, balanced with an appropriate amount of caution and safety awareness. Our class was diverse, and Andrew provided superior support for each one of us that met our needs. After the classroom session, I had ample time to practice what I had just learned. Thank you, Andrew and Gilbert Indoor Range. I would not hesitate to recommend your class and services.
Great place. Felt very safe. Instructor was great! Only one suggestion - we could have used a bit more training in the proper grip of the gun during the actual shooting. It wasn't until we were almost done that he fixed my grip and placed my thumbs in the proper position. Made a big difference.
Good instructors. You learn the proper safety without being too dull. They kept it fun and light and didn’t stress you out. Welcoming.
informative video and knowledgable instructor
Andrew was great. I grew up shooting and definitely needed a refresher and it was great to be able to take the class with my son. Nicely done!
Andrew was a great instruct and the facility was excellent.
My wife was celebrating her 65th birthday on Friday the 17th of November at your indoor range...She had a great experience, mostly due to the trainer's knowledge, patience, and professionalism...he was awesome.......we shall return soon...........Thanks......
Very knowledgeable and patient staff. We also really appreciated the introductory video and gun tutuorial before given live rounds and let loose at the actual range. We had a great time and will definitely be back!
This was my first time going to a gun range and it was amazing. Joel was a great instructor and was extremely helpful. I really enjoyed myself and look forward to going back.
Good guidance for beginners. I appreciated all the explanations that were very useful.
Excellent instructor called Joel, very informative. Though the beginning instructor video could use some updating!
The training (by Joel) was engaging and thorough. Once on the range, I felt like I knew everything I needed to both for safety and for shooting competently.
