The Gun Store opened in 1988 and has been your favorite indoor range and retail store ever since! We have private VIP ranges great for bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate events or any special occasion! We feature lead free, frangible ammunition for the health and safety of our customers. TGS offers Firearms Safety courses for adults and children, Ladies Shooting and Free CCW classes. Ask us about our Shotgun Weddings, Vow Renewals and Commitment Ceremonies!

Located just 3.5 Miles east of the strip we are a quick cab or shuttle ride away!


In 1988, owner Bob Irwin found himself alongside three other employees of what was then The Survival Store East - a steadily running shooting range and retail store. From the start, Bob was aware of the considerable possibilities that came with such a unique business. In 1988, he took over the company and it became known as The Gun Store.

The Gun Store has become one of Las Vegas' top places to visit, catering to tourists from all around the world and exhibiting a vast selection of firearms in both the retail store and shooting range. We offer a clean environment, featuring lead-free and frangible ammunition for our customers' health and safety. Our well-trained and friendly staff will ensure your visit to The Gun Store is one of many.

Bob Irwin founded the world famous 'The Gun Store' in Las Vegas, NV and he is the originator of the innovative 'Machine Gun Tourism' phenomenon that has grown hugely popular with Las Vegas tourists. Bob is certified by the National Rifle Association as a civilian handgun, shotgun, home defense and firearms safety instructor as well as a Training Counselor. He is also certified by Nevada Peace Officer Standards and Training as a law enforcement firearms instructor and a law enforcement firearms instructor trainer. In addition, Mr. Irwin served as a Bailiff for Clark County Justice Courts for 22 years and the Boulder Constable's Office for 26 years. Mr. Irwin additionally consults as an expert witness in firearms related court trials.

He hosts the "Fired Up! With Bob Irwin" television and radio shows every Saturday.

We choose this place as we thought it had the best packages, I choose the Coalition Package and My partner choose the Ladies Package. We were the only people on the range and because of this we had 1 to 1 intuition and trust me she was very good. We seriously let off some shots on the targets we choose... More

Visited this place first 5 years ago and it is still as much fun now. Great selection of guns to choose from and very friendly/helpful staff. This place represent exceptionally good value for money and I would recommend a visit while in Las Vegas. We turned up without a reservation but were processed quickly and efficiently.

The packages are affordable and the staff are very helpful. They also offer a free shuttle from your hotel - which is an added bonus. Our driver was awesome. I can't remember his name but he made our journey better.

So glad we did this. I've never shot a gun before so this was something I wanted to do whilst in the States. The Gun Store came recommended to me by a friend. As we had no clue what we wanted so we opted for the standard package. We each got to use a handgun and two different full autos.... More
