Had a great time. Had time to speak to all of us. My son was over the moon with his present and the way he was spoken to about the weapons.
Me and my friend visited here and had the best time. The staff are soo lovely. They gave us directions to get there, offered us hot drinks on arrival and allowed us to chill before starting our session. Our experience was amazing. Thank you 🙂
Little hard to find, although directions are on bottom of email.. Great experience, really nice guy who runs it. Overall, really interesting and would recommend. Cheers for a great experience!
What a amazing experience! Wayne was great at explaining all of the safety. I will definitely be back and am thinking about signing up to become a member! Thank you!
Way Of The Lost
First time member and amazed at the professional and down to earth staff! Made me feel safe and confident getting to learn the weapons in a friendly environment, Charlie & Wayne have been fantastic! Highly Recommend for new and old members alike 👍
One of the best places I’ve ever been. Nice stuff and great way to have fun
Great venue , well laid out with a real emphasis on safety. Really knowledgable team , friendly and concise with instruction; you know you’re in very safe and capable hands. Fantastic experience all round. Will most definitely return!
Had a great day's shoot at heavy metal shooting. Came up from Birmingham with two other people from our club. Very nice and professional range to shoot at. Plus we could use our higher calibre guns at this range. Wayne is an awsome ar builder who sorted out any problems we had with our guns. We will be deffernatly be returning very soon. Also. His shop in the range you could spend all day looking at all the ar15 parts he has in stock.. Brilliant range. Cheers Wayne
Friendly service, long opening times to suit all working hours, individual range distances, up to 50m for air rifles, light calibres and heavy calibres. A pleasant and helpful team provide a supportive and helpful service.
It’s a brilliant place to shoot and the best place learn to shoot, Wayne made me my own 300 blackout rife witch is brilliant to shoot on the 50 meter range. The staff are friendly and helpful, Wayne is more like a friend than the owner. Thanks guy’s L Griffiths PS go and talk to them.
awesome range good clean and tidy brilliant for developing loads very friendly as well and as a bonus motorised targets well recommended 👍
Great place, great facilities, great range. Dry indoor range ideal for zeroing, load development or just a bit of plinking
Brilliant, modern, dry indoor range. Motorised target retrieval and target cameras. Very friendly and hugely knowledgeable owners/staff. Fully stocked RFD shop on site! Highly recommended!!! A welcome, needed and amazing addition to the shooting sport!
What can I say !!! This place is perfect and in the northwest too. I’ve been waiting for years for this place to be built from hearing the rumours to becoming a full member and shooting it regularly on members nights twice weekly. (And doing rubbish on leader board might I add). A credit to Charlie and Wayne who have worked their butts off to get it to where it is! It has 2 x 50 metre firing points, 1 seated and 1 standing both with worktop. The seating area were you can get a hot drink or a bar of chocolate and soak up the wealth of knowledge from these 2 passionate shooters. An in house AR shop #northwestcustomparts to get all your bits including Ammo. Which in my case has doubled since shooting here but with every bang there’s a smile so we’ll worth it 😃. If you’ve never shot before and want to try send them a message and take it from there. Fun friendly atmosphere 10/10
Great experience the only indoor 50yd range and great shop…for a great day out best place in the north.
Fantastic Range, great staff with a wealth of knowledge. The on site shop is like a Mecca for the AR-15 shooter. Never seen so many parts and full set ups I would love to have. To add a cherry on the cake the coffee is pretty good too 👍🏼 Wish I could spend so much more time here. Look forward to many more shoots. Lots of competitions and an active club to boot. Get down and see for yourself. Highly recommended. Five stars ⭐️
Fantastic facility ran by knowledgeable and friendly individuals. I used it to check zero on some full bore rifles in luxury compared to laying in a puddle on an outdoor range! Highly recommended!
