ALEN is amazing! The whole experience was FANTASTIC! - ALEN is AMAZING!!!! 1st time here, 1st time handling a gun and the experience couldn’t have been any better. The whole facility and all the staff are top notch. Everyone is very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Alen in particular who gave us an introductory beginner’s lesson was so comforting and patient with us being that it was the first time we were handling a gun. His guidance, knowledge and understanding exceeded our expectations and made the whole experience exceptional. All the staff we encountered were great and very knowledgeable and so willing to help with everything! Looking forward to going back soon , would like to sign up for another class with Alen and definitely sign yourselves up for a membership because it pays itself off in the end.

The staff makes all the difference - The instruction was fantastic. Shout out to Paul P. He was patient, incredibly detailed, and made being a novice extremely enjoyable and we came away feeling safe and knowledgable. The entire staff is friendly and they are all asking how they can help. Great experience. Will be back next weekend.

A real highlight - Great fun! Visited with my father and we both had no experiences with any weapons before, yet it was a great pleasure. I was never concerned about our safety since everyone was thoroughly instructed and in the end, we even recieved a recording of our shots. When leaving we were really sad that here in Germany, places like these dont exist.

A BLAST - It is an awsome place and the people that are working there. We felt welcome from the start to the end. It was our first time shooting and the instructors did an excellent job making us feel secure with the wapons and we had a real BLAST. We (my brother in law and I) would recommend this range to every one who wants to try out shooting for the first time.

Guns for Hire was a great expierience - It was an incredible experience. In our country isn’t possible to do such activity that easy. The instructors were professionals, I like their attitude. I have been there for the first time with my wife and son (14 y) and had an extremely friendly welcome. The next time when visiting the USA i definitely will Visit Guns for hire again. It's a must-do in my opinion if you are visiting the USA.

The Army Girl - I had the pleasure of visiting Gun For Hire twice, and on both occasions, my family and I were greeted by warm and friendly staff. During my first visit, I was assisted by Addington. He was very pleasant and quickly assisted us with anything we needed. On my second visit, I was with a first-time shooter and asked for an instructor to assist. Not only was the instructor, Paul, full of information, he had a great personality to match. Additionally, this range has a wide variety of guns to choose from (I got to shoot a pink AR-15!!!), allowing anyone to sharpen their skills with numerous guns, or you could bring your own and pay for the rounds. It is safe to say that this is a place I will frequent often, and as an Army Veteran who loves shooting as a sport and stress reliever, this place caters to my needs.
