Well worth the trip from NYC! - Well worth the trip out from NYC while visiting from England - our two kids really loved it - especially my 15-year-old son and my 13-year-old daughter was happy to have a few shots and then donate the rest to her big brother!! John P helped us so much while on the range, but all the people working there were lovely and helpful and it’s clearly a really professionally run place. Would recommend to anyone who fancies something a bit different to do on a family trip instead of shopping!

Great experience - Went with a friend while travelling to New York. We had a great time and the staff were patient and really helpful as we had not fired a gun with live ammunition before. It was a really fun experience.

Super cool to do and nice explanation - Super really cool shooting range, clear explanation and while shooting Litto gave more than enough explanation and tips! If you are in New York, grab a taxi and go here, you won't regret it!!

Recommend without hesitation - Holy smokes!! The 50 cal Barrett was simply incredible. First time range users, myself and my 15 year old literally had a 'blast'. Easy to get to from New York, one bus from Port Authority then a $12 cab. Fill in a few forms and you are good to go. Staff were helpful courteous and informative. Shot a variety of weapons which were great but not a patch on having a shot with the Barrett, still smiling. Loads of cool Merchandise available in their shop too. Can't recommend these guys enough, even posted us our targets after we left them behind in our excitement.. 5*.

Incredible and perfect - The experience was incredible and the instructor Harrison was incredible, he taught us and guided us perfectly, the spectacular weapons the only thing would be that for 3 people there was little ammunition, it was better to take the packages separately to have something more
