The staff was nothing but classy and knowledgeable. Range officers were great and kept a safe environment as well as making sure you were enjoying your experience. Retail selection was fantastic. Definitely my favorite range/store and a place I look forward to coming back to.

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.

The best selection of firearms in the state.
That’s why they are known as Colorado’s Gun shop.
Bought a handgun from the gents here. Was very happy with my service and how I was treated. Came in looking for one gun, it had sold and they showed me another one which was comparable for what I was after. Will be returning for further purchases.

Knowledgeable staff very fair pricing. Staff was much more friendly and willing to help than most similar gun shops. It’s a more inviting atmosphere as well

Super knowledgeable team providing a low pressure sales environment. Wide array of offerings and very reasonable prices.
The range officer was very friendly and helpful, full of useful advice.
When we were done we stopped into the armory to look at the pistols we had narrowed down to, check prices, get some more input, etc. As soon as we walked in we were greeted and asked if we needed assistance. We said no, not yet. When we had located what we were looking for another employee came over to help. He was very well informed, had lots of useful information to share and tirelessly showed us gun after gun. He walked away when we said we needed to discuss, and happily came back when I also asked to see a shotgun. When we were done with that we started wandering a bit and a female employee let us know they were closed at 6. So we left. When we got to the car we saw it was 6:38pm, they had let us stay and look and ask questions well past closing time without so much as a peep of complaint. Will probably return to purchase there.
I purchased my glock 26 and was given an hour range time with my purchase. Chris was in the actual range area and helped me with firing, how to hold my pistol, etc. He was extremely friendly and professional, patient and informative. I highly recommend going here.

Bought my 1st hand gun here and I had a great experience. Staff was helpful and the process was quick and painless. Definitely the largest selection that I have seen.

Dear Armoury, I am so pleased with every single person that works at the Armoury. My class was a tremendous help sales was so terrific. My over all experience is 120% and more. I’ve learned so much and will continue my learning journey. Never would I have been so confident to shoot, my new S$P Smith and Wesson 9mm. Thank you all for your patience and kindness to me. Plan on learning more and more. Visiting often️️️

5280 has been a great experience for me and continues to be a great experience. I recently purchased my first firearm and did a lot of research before going to a store. 5280 is close to my work so I gave them a shot. When I first walked in I was greeted with a smile and hello. As I looked around the staff was very attentive and showed me a few pistols and answered my silly newbie questions. I did run into an issue with my background check but a lady from the shop called me a couple weeks later to let me know it cleared up and I was OK to purchase.
Returning to the shop to pickup my pistol I was again greeted with a smile and hello. Everyone I have interacted with his been really friendly and I always feel welcome there.
For my next trip a buddy and myself decided to hit the range. The signup process was easy and the gentleman behind the counter answered all my questions. We paid for 2 lanes and headed into the range. Upon entering it was very comfortable and well kept. You could hear the filtration system running and a real slight breeze pushing air forward. There was an employee in the range sweeping the casings and he was also really helpful. After my round of shots he came over and asked if I wanted any pointers. he spent a few minutes with me and gave some great advise. He also did a fantastic job keeping the range clear of casings. The target system was really nice as well. Touch screen controls where you set your distance (yards, ft or meters) and send your targets away or bring them back with the push of a button.
You can also rent a huge assortment of guns (we brought our own) from pistols to fully automatic weapons. The range ammo I bought here was really cheap and most targets were $2 each.
All and all the few times I have been to 5280 has been a great experience and I will continue to give them my business in the future. I will probably sign up for the monthly range fee since its only $40 per month while the normal range fee is $20 an hour. Not sure what has happened with these negative reviews, I have seen nothing respect and friendliness from the employee’s each time I visit.

My son and I went to the 5280 Armory today to shoot. It was an outstanding experience. The people moved a large crowd of shooters into the range quickly. Everyone working there was kind an helpful. I do not understand negative reviews. I’ll be going back to 5280 Armory to shoot and to train.

Just wanted to say my family and I had a great time at Guns and Gears this weekend. It was well worth the drive from Monument, CO. Really enjoyed getting the opportunity to chat with Michael Brown and all the staff was very friendly. I had hoped to do better in the poker shoot, but 2nd place will do for this year. Thanks to all of you at 5280 Armory. I’m sure I’ll find a reason to drive up there again soon.

Hi — Was at your range a couple weekends ago during your open house; you have an impressive selection of guns and a nice indoor range.

5280 Armory has become my go-to for range shooting and shopping. I’ve been there at least a dozen times now and have had nothing but positive experiences with the range, store, and classroom staff. Much appreciation to the owners and staff for providing great services!

I purchased most all of the firearms here. The owners Matt and Gina have always been extremely courteous and helpful with everything. They have great help in the store, and their selection and knowledge is just ridiculous (in a good way!)I will continue to go to them for many years to come.

Went here today with my wife to look at CCW’s for my wife. I was amazed how knowledgeable and patient they were. They took the time to show us a dozen or so different firearms. Explaining everything on each one. What great service and staff. We will definitely be back.

I have bought 3 firearms and numerous other items from 5280 armory over the last 6 weeks and for good reason. I don’t drive an hour to go there to be treated poorly or to get ripped off on prices. It is my conclusion that any negative review you may read on 5280 armory (there are only a few, not many) comes from a jealous competitor. In my line of work I witness on a regular basis people who slander and make up lies about others because they are jealous of their success. That is exactly what is going on here.They have the largest selection of firearms you will find anywhere which is great for a few reasons. For one, you get to learn about products you haven’t even heard of or considered. When I bought my AR-15 I was set on getting a Sig Sauer but after speaking with the owner he introduced me to a brand new line of AR-15’s offered by Armalite. I couldn’t be happier with the gun he suggested and it was a better fit for what I wanted than the Sig Sauer was. You also get a chance to see rare firearms that are hard to find. I recently bought a SAIGA-12 (Arsenal build) for $1,000. With the recent import ban on Russian firearms, it has been incredibly difficult to find anywhere that has anything left that is built by SAIGA let alone their legendary 12 gauge, magazine fed shotgun. When I saw they had them I could not resist buying one, especially for that price! That gun should be going for $1,500+. The other great thing about a selection that size is that it makes comparing guns SUPER EASY. I don’t have to drive back and forth between multiple gun stores to compare firearms AND I can use their shooting range located right there at the store (most stores don’t have that).5280 Armory is the best gun store you will find in Colorado, guaranteed. Their staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. But don’t take my word for it. Go check it out for yourself!
Their new store is well stocked, clean, and well lit. As a gun enthusiast I am thrilled to walk through the door. The staff are polite and knowledgeable. It’s nice to be able to ask a question to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge.
Otherwise, I know firearms, I know prices and I know good people… and 5280 has my business.
Never have I met people, a family more committed to developing a positive image of this industry and gun ownership as a whole ! These folks eat, sleep and breath firearms 24/7 365 and want nothing more but to be helpful, informative, and caring when helping customers of all knowledge and skill level. Everybody has a bad day. People are human you know. Try to use your head before you speak( or type ) . Also, try to resolve an issue with the person you have it with in a respectful and adult manner, you’ll be surprised at the outcome. 5280 Armory didn’t grow from a home ran one man show to what it is now because they are incompetent or ignorant. This is a Top Shelf operation !
Check it out for your self and make your own assessment. Rock On Boones !

An awesome family run gun shop with a huge selection of firearms and most importantly a great customer service culture; especially as experienced from a woman’s perspective. The folks here are wonderful!
Btw; they have the best selection of AR-15 variants I have ever seen!

was super helpful, as well as his staff. He spent a lot of time with me despite the fact that there were a lot of other customers in the store. What I really found nice was the absence of the attitude of so many other gun stores that your stuff is&$@? but ours is
priceless. Best gun shop in CO.
Fair pricing considering the current demand.
I’ve bought 3 or 4 guns here over the past few years and have had a great experience with each purchase

I have purchased and traded numerous firearms at 5280. Best shop I’ve ever been to. I’ll never buy from another shop, nor will my friends and family! Also, their CCW class was informative and well taught! Matt and Gina are always there and willing to help! Keep up the excellent work!

I have purchased several firearms and loads of ammo from Matt and Gina at 5280 Armory over the years. I highly recommend this shop above all others in the Denver metro area.

Went to 5280 Armory yesterday to buy a Saiga SLG21. They were the only shop in Denver that had the rifle in stock. Although the location of the store is off the beaten path, it was well worth the drive. I found the inventory of rifles, handguns and pieces/parts very impressive. The staff was first rate and very knowledgeable, and the prices were competitive. I echo an earlier post that this is the best gun shop in the metro area. I dropped some cash there gladly, and intend to do so again.
