Inside Gilbert Indoor Range's 22,000-square-foot facility, licensed firearm instructors teach the basics of gun safety and shooting. A preliminary safety lesson and shooting tutorial primes minds to wield guns responsibly and earns patrons access to the 75-foot-long shooting lanes. There, trigger fingers empty boxes of .38 Special, 9 mm, and .22 long-rifle ammo into printed targets as a state-of-the-art ventilation system sweeps up any lead, dust, or unhappy thought bubbles circulating in the air. Advanced courses as well as moving and pop-up targets await students that choose to continue to climb the shell-strewn ranks.
After their lesson, patrons can continue to tone their trigger fingers in the facility’s shooting simulator, which immerses gunslingers in more than 300 different shooting scenarios. Additionally, a retail store furnishes endless accessorizing, and the secure walk-in vault safely stores firearms and their heirloom holsters.
