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.

First time at a gun range, price was amazing and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Must do if you come to Vegas. We rented a car to see hover dam, but you can call the company and a shuttle can pick you up.

We bought a package through Viator and all went smooth. Our service was JR and he was very informative and helped with great instructions. We shot hand gun, shot gun, Tavor and full automatic. We opted for a single round each of the 50 caliber. A little pricey at $25 but when are you going to be able to fire... More

I called asking how to register for a CCW class online. The woman on the phone (she didn't greet me with her name when she answered) was condescending and had a bad attitude. As a result, I decided not to register for a class. If that was just a taste of what the experience would be, then I do not... More

We were a group of first time shooters from the UK. Everything about this place was professional. The choice and quality of equipment was great. The patience and understanding from the instructors was exemplary, but best of all it was a great place to have some fun while feeling safe. One of the best things about our trip to Vegas.

Just brilliant from start to finish. I did it with my paps and partner (mum wasnt too keen) but was allowed to come into the booth area to watch. Well priced, professional friendly staff, good instruction, get to choose your target and what gun you want to shoot. Was a great experience you can't get in the UK. Definitely recomend!... More

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.

My husband and I took his son here on his 18th bday. We are locals, but hadn't quite made it here before. So much fun! With all the packages to choose from, you can easily find the right fit. Definitely arrange it in advance - and have fun! Oh, and you get a free t-shirt too; I get positive comments... More
