Beyond maintaining its range, Firearm Exchange's team hosts classes taught by instructors claiming NRA certifications, covering topics ranging from basic firearms operation to hunting safety. For those who bring their own firearms, a cleaning room contains maintenance supplies so shooters can clear their pieces of gunpowder residue. The range hosts social events as well.
Located inside Shooter's Service, Shooting Range & Archery Center has been a staple of Michigan's tri-county area since 1975. The store stocks for the beginner and experienced archer with both traditional and modern compound bows and crossbows. Certified bow technicians conduct all restringing and repairs. Besides supplying gear, they also offer instructional classes on Saturday mornings and can accommodate outings and parties that families and friends can enjoy.
Action Impact Range is the domain of William Kucyk, a US Army veteran and former lawman who spent decades commanding a detective bureau, conducting special investigations, and serving on a SWAT team. His years of expertise and experience as an attorney lend a wealth of knowledge in leading a team of range safety officers and making informative videos.
Handgun rentals are available.
Mark Cortis wants people to feel safe and comfortable when firing a handgun, so much so that the NRA-certified instructor offers a lifetime retake option for his concealed-carry students. That's no small gesture. Since 1991, Mr. Cortis has trained thousands of people, including those who work as professional security officers, private detectives, and law-enforcement officers. He's also pretty easy to get ahold of, offering classes seven days a week.

The instructors at Focus First Firearms Training, LLC don't have to brag about their skills—they can let their resumes do it for them. After all, they're made up of NRA-certified firearms instructors, IALEFI members, IDPA and IPSC competitive shooters, IDPA-certified range-safety officers, and even certified martial-arts instructors. Together, the team teaches real-world firearm techniques in the safety of carefully conducted classes. Using live ammunition, students hone their marksmanship while under duress, and they practice proper drawing techniques, shooting on the move, and shooting from cover. Close-quarter live-fire drills and hand-to-hand combat are regularly practiced on private fields, and instructors discuss different marksmanship techniques for shotguns, rifles, and pistols during advanced classes on tactics and weapons. Classes are held at different locations and employ a martial-arts dojo for physical skills and private live-fire courses for tactics lessons. The Concealed Pistol License courses comply with the State of Michigan requirement under Section 5J of 1927 Public Act 372.
