My daughter and I had a fine time there. The range was patrolled and safe. I liked that they pay attention to safety and have their act together. After we shot 150 rounds of 9mm in my Sig, we went to the sales counter to look at revolvers. The gentleman was VERY helpful and showed my daughter a GP100 revolver. I was taken aback by the good manners. Its kind of unusual these days, especially for those of us that come down from DC. Anyway, this will become a regular stop for us. We really loved this place.

WORST range in VA. RUDE, disrespectful, and judgmental staff. Threatened a $1000 fine for us quick-firing an AR (nothing in the rules says you can't). Hate this place and I look forward to NEVER SPENDING ANOTHER DOLLAR with them. Would like to see them shut down.

Great range and wonderful experience. The staff at the range counter and the safety officers were very good. It was crowded and there was a small wait but the staff really takes their time with customers which is nice when it is your turn. Gun rental selection was impressive.

It's one of the nicest indoor ranges you'll see. I agree with the rude staff, but they are still working on putting the right team in place. It's a great place for beginners to learn to shoot. ~They are the only shop that I could find that carries Blade Tech holsters. ~They don't have much of a selection of used guns, but that will grow with time. ~I was a member for a year, but cancelled my membership, since we just don't shoot often enough to justify the cost, which still wasn't bad - $53/month. ~The best thing about the place is the range downstairs! It's a tactical range, where you can draw and move and shoot; and they have IDPA competitions every week. I only went once, but it was too crowded. I couldn't stick around; therefore, I never got a chance to shoot. ~They also have great classes, but they are pricey. I guess you could say that price is a small detail when it comes to education/training and protecting yourself and your loved ones. .

While a lot of the initial polish of the place has been allowed to wear off sadly (the nice cafe on the first floor was replaced with some vending machines, range 1 is often shut down, the store selection has dwindled) Colonial remains a frankly great range. It's clean, safe, modern, and well-lit, all of which place it well ahead of any other indoor range in driving distance. The store prices are on the high end unless you wait for something to be on sale, but the employees are good about showing off products without any pestering. It's not a cheap range, but avoiding lead inhalation and having digital target controls is worth the price in my opinion.

The guys at the range counter are nice...but why in the world are most of the employees who work the retail or gun sales side so rude? Such attitudes of elitism from some of those employees...and I didn't appreciate being talked down to and thus ignored because I didn't use the correct terminology when I referred to a sling for a rifle as a shoulder strap...rather than a sling...big deal...its not like I'm on the range and holding the gun upside down and backwards. Come on Colonial...with as many people complaining about guys could at least step it up on addressing these issues. Poor customer service is what kills a business...your customers who have had a poor experiences here may not remember the specifics of what happened months or years after they happened, but they will always remember the way they felt.

place is great and staff is the respectful when respected which is how it works.Clean,well kept which is more then can be said for dominion.....update after almost 2 years of membership I must say things have gone down hill.They sell you on and advertise all these lanes but 95% of the time only one range is open leaving even members to wait.Range counter is under staffed and not very organized with lines at times down the stairs and they seem to favor non members over members that pay monthly.Place has less employees every time we go in there and seem to go through employees a lot.We will reconsider renewing our membership next time around.

The store is clean and nice but thats where the good stuff stops. The staff is rude and not helpful. I have ordered items and had them never show up. The mangers are not helpful. I listended to a manager named Dywane belittle an employee in front of customers on several occasions. They will never again get my business
