Visitors to Banger's Sport Shop greet archery and firearm experts during lessons and inside the expansive pro shop.

On four outdoor shooting ranges of 25, 50, 100, and 300 yards long, NRA-certified firearms instructors teach aiming and shooting techniques during the introductory-shooting class. Back inside the shop, staffers fill guests in on an array of new and used firearms, compound bows, ammunition, reloading supplies, and hunting gear. An onsite gunsmith is also available to repair firearms or add vintage bicycle bells to ones needing more character.
