Rangemaster is first and foremost a training facility and school, offering a variety of classes. They are secondarily a public range and a small pro-shop for those using their range and/or taking classes. People go out of their way to complain more than compliment so I thought I would add my perspective. Tom Givens (owner of Rangemaster) is a nationally-known firearms instructor and that is the largest business point for Rangemaster. I think too many people look at Rangemaster as a "gun store" or an "indoor range" and those are actually a very small part of Rangemaster's business, as some others can attest with their issues using the range on lots of visits. I took their 2-day Combative Pistol class and it is a superb class for anyone serious about carrying a firearm as a life-saving tool. I drove 300 miles to the class and would do it again, and plan to.

I was taking my teenage son shooting and didn't want to go to an outdoor range or drive 45 minutes to Range USA. I checked the Range Master website for operating hours and to see if there was a class taking place that may hinder our range time. The website listed some classes but not on the day we were going, so we headed that way. When we got there the guy behind the counter told us that we couldn't have a lane because a class was going to start in 45 minutes. When I asked why it wasn't listed on the website he said rudely, "I don't do the website." I asked if we could maybe shoot for half an hour since there was a mix-up and we could be done before the class started. He insisted that we could not shoot for any amount of time, and turned around to talk to a co-worker. Now, as a former law enforcement officer, certified firearms instructor, and management professional, I would have to say that this guy is one of the rudest employees I've dealt with. I don't know if he owns the place or not, but he certainly leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to customer service. As a consumer I exercised my choice to go to another range (Range USA) where the employees have always made us feel welcome. My first visit to RM will be my last, not out of spite, but out of self-respect.

Getting my shots on

The first time I went to Rangemaster, I went with my Dad (who was leaving town an hour later, and I wouldn't see for 6 months) to do some target practice in the middle of the day on a Tuesday. I inquired about lane rental and was told I couldn't shoot because a class was going on. "Fair enough. It's my fault. I should have called ahead to check," I thought. I then saw that they had 9mm reloads (10 boxes) and asked how much they were. The man behind the counter told me, and I asked to buy 2 boxes. I was then told he wouldn't sell them to me because they were only for customers who used them in their lanes. Now, I try to rent a lane, get told no, then try to buy some ammo, then told no becuase I wasn't renting a lane. Does that make ANY sense? Needless to say, I will NOT be going back there; this was my first and last time. I'd rather not shoot period, than go to Rangemaster.

VERY unimpressed with this place. One of the guys made a smart remark to my purchase: "why would you buy that?".... I will NEVER give them another penny of my money! One of the WORST customer service gun stores I've ever been in PERIOD.

Great class experience and very informative! I was very nervous going in, but they made me feel very at ease. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to learn more about shooting, or just for a nice time at the range.
