Was my roommates and I first time EVER being to a range. They helped us pick a pistol that we were both interested in but also fit us and made sure we were comfortable w our recommendations. She answered all of our novice questions w no condensation. The man on the range itself was just as helpful w loading/ misfire questions as well as general shooting advice. Both informational and approachable. Made for a great first range session for the both of us. Will DEFINITELY BE BACK

The staff at this range are incredibly friendly, easy going, respectful and helpful. That was the most important part to me. I felt free to really have fun and enjoy myself. The building is very well kept and visually appealing. The range is fantastico! In their shop they have an amazingly large gun selection.

5280 Armory store is a fantastic experience. I just bought a rifle I had been looking all over for. I called the shop, they had the rifle in stock so I went in. First off, their store is impressive. The biggest selection I’ve seen outside of Las Vegas.

The store is very well organized by brand and caliber. When I approached the counter a staff member greeted me right away. The rifle I was looking for was in stock as promised and priced VERY competitively (even when compared to online prices).

I was also impressed by their selection of collectors forearms too. If you’re looking for a unique piece of history check here first.

The 5280 Armory offers a ‘cash’ discount on almost all firearms sold there which is nice. Basically they pass along the savings of not having a credit card transaction fee.

The staff overall was friendly and knowledgeable. I’ll definitely be driving the 30 minutes from home to make ALL my future purchases here. They are definitely worth the drive.

I’ll be back soon to check out their indoor range, hopefully it’s run as well as the 5280 Armory store.
