Review Our Business Section

  • Great place to go and burn up some ammo. Super friendly people who know what they're doing and are always smiling. If you are trying to decide on what fits your needs best, a very good selection of weapons are available to try out, at a very reasonable fee. The range lanes are always clean with a good air filtration system in place. I try to go at least twice a month and always have a good experience. They have lots of shooting gear, targets, ammo, eye wear, ear protection, etc. All in all a great place to go and shoot. Thanks Take Aim!

  • Outstanding Gun store and Gun Range! Very friendly and well informed & Knowledgeable Family run Range. Plenty of space for all your shooting. They have a 5 shot try out / see how it fits, test drive the gun before you purchase program which is a wonderful way of fitting the Firearm to you instead of buying one & learning to fit you into the firearm. They have classes available and special days through the week like Monday's competition and Thursday is Lady's day. Family friendly and a Great Location make this my Top Gun Range!

  • My wife and I love this place. Take Aim has a friendly staff who are very knowledgeable. Mike Magowan is the best trainer I know, and Peter is, well, Peter, and we love them both. Very family oriented, calm atmosphere (for a gun range), and their prices aren't bad either. Check them out, and fire a few rounds while you are there.
