"Article II is by far the best indoor range in the Chicago area."
"However, the ventilation on the pistol range is terrible."
"Bought a real nice handgun, very good selection, very competitive price."

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.

Despite all of these negative reviews, which Google loves to put at the top. I elected to give it a shot. My first time shooter friend and I went in on a Sunday and the parking lot was packed and we stood in line with people from all walks of life. The staff was firm but very professional, I found the fellow behind the counter as having a good sense of humor when I went to get more ammo. I am already planning my next trip back to Article II and I may even purchase an annual membership as well as take a class or two there. As for all you crybabies who seem expect the staff to pamper you upon arrival, get over yourselves! It's a gun range, not a day-care center!

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.

Okay, I have read a lot of the other reviews and all the complaints about the guy at the range. For one, the guys there seem like they are just playing around while trying to keep order. But remember, they have to keep things safe as well. If you were bothered by the range master on your first visit, try going again and look for the humor in their attitude rather than taking it personally, Second, everyone behind the counter has always been really helpful, and they really know their stuff. I got a great deal on a Glock, and I always get great advice from all the guys there. The classes I have taken for CC were also solid. And the price for the range, especially if you buy the 10-pack pass or the yearly pass, is very reasonable. The only thing that is tough is the lack of good ventilation in the range. I go to this place all the time for all of the above reasons, but also because the security at some of the other ranges is lax. At one other west suburban range, I have seen kids running around unsupervised while their parents are shooting and other ridiculous hazards. That's what can happen if management doesn't have a firm grip on the range.

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 have been here to this range now 6 times, I have never had any problems and no complaints. The safety exhibited by staff is fine, no complaints. I have read reviews stating the place is not supervised, the place is not clean, the ventilation is bad all of which is in my experience not true. I have never seen the range unsupervised, its always clean, very few shell casings if any on the floor, and as far as ventilation, well I have asthma and take medication daily for it. My breathing has never been affected going to Article II. I recommend this place freely.

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.

Article II Range hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
