    Really great experience
    We met our instructor Jim and he was awesome. He showed us some pistols and we went on to the range. There we met Julian. He was also incredible. My wife was a first time shooter and he made her feel relaxed and confident with his instructions. She was a little intimidated by the guns at first but walked away with lots of confidence and wants to go back. She’s already filed for a permit and is planning another trip! Great job done by all!!
    Welcome to the family Bill! We are so happy to hear you had a wonderful experience! We hope to welcome you back again soon.

    Great for tourists! Thanks Caesar!
    All of the staff were so friendly! It was my first time even touching a gun and we were completely at ease the whole time. They had an awesome range of rental weapons and fun targets. Cesar was a fantastic instructor and was very patient with us when we made mistakes, while still pushing us just far enough out of our comfort zones!
    Welcome to the family! We hope to welcome you again soon! Stay safe.

    Excellent range, i would recommend it
    Our visit to Gun for Hire, the shooting range in New Jersey, was truly remarkable. I had called ahead to confirm availability, and I was impressed by the friendly and professional receptionist who took my call, setting a positive tone for our visit. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the reception staff, two lovely ladies, who explained the necessary waiver process. They made us feel like part of their extended family and encouraged us to ask any questions. The facility itself was impeccably clean and well-maintained, creating a stress-free and inviting atmosphere. The interior design added to the overall experience, enhancing our comfort. After signing the waiver, we proceeded to the rental desk. Here, I had my first and only slightly negative encounter with a staff member. Unfortunately, we weren't greeted as warmly by one of the young ladies at the desk. She seemed somewhat annoyed when she asked, "You guys wanna shoot or something?" It felt like she was rushing through her job with a hint of irritation. Nonetheless, we completed our transaction and headed to the range. Once at the range, we were pleasantly greeted by the exceptional staff. We were assigned an instructor named Marc, who proved to be a true master of his craft. Marc not only provided us with a sense of camaraderie but also explained everything thoroughly. His expertise made our day and overall experience truly amazing. In summary: Pros: Gun for Hire boasts a spacious and impeccably clean facility. The instructors, especially Marc, are outstanding and deserve recognition. The firearms are well-maintained, clean, and functioned flawlessly. Pricing is reasonable and fair. Cons: Our experience with the young lady at the rental desk left something to be desired. Overall, Gun for Hire is an excellent shooting range with the exception of our encounter at the rental desk

ALEN is AMAZING!!!! 1st time here, 1st time handling a gun and the experience couldn’t have been any better. The whole facility and all the staff are top notch. Everyone is very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Alen in particular who gave us an introductory beginner’s lesson was so comforting and patient with us being that it was the first time we were handling a gun. His guidance, knowledge and understanding exceeded our expectations and made the whole experience exceptional. All the staff we encountered were great and very knowledgeable and so willing to help with everything! Looking forward to going back soon , would like to sign up for another class with Alen and definitely sign yourselves up for a membership because it pays itself off in the end.

The instruction was fantastic. Shout out to Paul P. He was patient, incredibly detailed, and made being a novice extremely enjoyable and we came away feeling safe and knowledgable. The entire staff is friendly and they are all asking how they can help. Great experience. Will be back next weekend.

Took the kiddos to learn how to properly shoot a gun and it was so amazing! The staff there was super nice and attentive. When the instructor spoke he was very encouraging and thorough! Took his time to explain properly. He was very safe It was another great experience. I bring my daughter years ago. And I must say….. THIS PLACE HAS NOT LOST A STEP.
