I don't know what everyone else is talking about. When I went the staff was extremely friendly and they had a great sense of humor. They even gave me a discount on ammo because it was my birthday. Also one of the staff there let me use his own personal AR 15 with 40 rounds free of charge. I dont understand how anyone could think that the staff is rude. They had some of the nicest staff I have ever seen. And everything there was priced nicely. One of the only ranges you can shoot pistols, rifles, and shotguns. Rental selection is huge and the guns are nice and high quality.

My wife and I went here today and had a great experience - way better than expected after reading all the horrible reviews! 4/5 only because the ventilation system could be greatly improved but still worth the proximity to home and the entire staff was very polite and professional to both of us. GAT may have a much nicer facility but we will certainly be returning here. It is not a flower shop, it's a gun range. My advice to everyone getting all offended by rude employees: let it go, let it roll off your shoulders. Better to ask questions and have an idiot try to feel superior than to not ask and make a mistake or false assumption. Don't be discouraged, there are good people at Article 2 too. Forget the Aholes!

I was really excited to have a range open up so close to where I live, but disappointed how it turned out. It's usually very busy here and crowded so arrive early as possible if you want to use the range. There are indeed some staff who are rude and talk down to people. I've been here a few times and to be fair it's not everyone that acts like this. I met a couple of staff members that took the time to genuinely assist me. I think they have difficult jobs maintaining safety and answering repetitive questions, but that is what they are being paid for. I hope they read these reviews and maybe tone down the attitude there a bit. Even with these faults I still go there because of the location.

First time my wife and I ever shot a gun. My wife was very apprehensive about going inside as she knew nothing about guns. While waiting for our appointment time, I asked one of the men behind a counter about a gun. He treated me with respect and answered my questions. We had a private lesson on how to hold and shoot. Our instructor was very patient and answered all questions we had, and we felt very comfortable with him being newbies. He took us to the range and we shot a 22 LR revolver and a 9mm hand gun. My wife did better then me. i am going back for a private lesson with our guy as I felt he was very helpful and patient.

Took my brother in law shooting for the first time; staff was amazing and friendly... other reviewers must have given attitudes to get one back, everyone was great. They were busy yet answered questions readily. Max at the range desk was a stand out... Minutes from the house; we will be back often!

I went here with a good friend last week and had a great time. We stayed for about 2.5 hours and went during off peak hours. I did not have a problem with any of the sales people, but I can definitely understand some of the reviews. The short sloppy guy in his twenties needs an attitude adjustment, but he was tolerable, barely. I preferred not to speak to him. The older guy checking in for the range was very familial and friendly. The filipino (or mexican) guy with the tattoos was super professional, friendly, and helpful. While shooting, an older bald guy with grey hair and a scraggly beard angrily pounded on the glass and told me to put away a water bottle. Pissy guy, but those are the rules. As for the range and building, it is not in the best condition. The range seemed to be in ok condition, but the lighting was satisfactory and the lanes were spacious. All in all, I enjoyed my time here. UPDATE: I've been back to the range by myself and was there for a couple of hours. I was treated well by the older guys at check in and at the range desk. I do agree that customer service is hit or miss here and there are some real assholes around but there are also some really great gun store employees as well. My opinion about Article 2 is that although there are a few douchebags, the quality guys outnumber them at least 2 to 1. Their range is decent, though I wish it were longer range. I will be returning and will update again if necessary. Good experience overall. Would recommend to a friend.

Extremely terrible customer experience especially with Bob at the gun range counter. Never have we ever experienced such a disrespect from an establishment. I will be sure to go back to all of my "gun nut" friends to make sure they know what happened. If they hope to ever recover from there terrible customer service slump they need to make better employment decisions. Bob should not be able to interact with customers at all.

When I went there all the older guys were nice, it was the younger guys working there that are total douchebags. My experience there was good, until I asked a few questions at the front desk. I got my first gun last weekend, it is a rifle so naturally when looking for help from people who know guns....you go to a GUN STORE. There is one guy....again a younger one. Blonde hair.....big arm sleeve tat with a polo 3 sizes too small. He was a total douchebag and judged me for every question I asked. I didnt realize before buying a gun I was supposed to be able to field strip it blindfolded and upside down in under 90 seconds. I would go there again....I just wouldnt deal with any of the young douchebags there. Be prepared to get judged when you enter though..........
