Pros
  • Great range
Cons
  • Employees friendly but are slow to disclose and share laws and possible outcomes
The current staff is very friendly, and the prices in Bellevue location are not anything to write home about but not astronomically above most others ($30-60$ more than Wades and Discount). Was disappointed at the lack of education given or probing into purchase reasoning (so they could maybe recommend something better suited to the purchasers needs etc not for any negative reasons of course). Unfortunately I have found that upon speaking to all but one stafffer, the hard and fast knowledge of law is lacking- which is something as a first time gun buyer needs when they are making that exciting first buy! As a matter of a fact my first app was not even filled out properly due to lack of explanation by staff. I really really want to love this place, but considering the weight of their roles in effective pistol purchasing- I found them to be lacking.

The range is awesome, been there many times and I have no gripes there!
Pros
  • Clean indoor facility, wide lanes (particularly the Gold lanes), friendly staff that are knowledgeable and enthusiasts. They have a rentable cleaning station (included in some membership levels) and a great assortment of rentable weapons.
Cons
  • Can get busy and service can be slow during these times. If you're a lifetime member you'll often wait for new members rather than be served at a different counter/window. Other than that, this place is about as perfect as you'll find...
This is the premier indoor range on the eastside (and now that I think of it, possibly the entire Puget Sound region). Having shot at a variety of indoor ranges from as south as Puyallup and north as Bellingham, this is as nice as it gets.

They also have a pro-shop attached to the range which has an excellent assortment of ammo at competitive prices as well as a wide variety of weapons for sale. I've used their gunsmithing services and they were also excellent.

If you're interested in classes they offer a wide variety of them (by third party vendors). There is also a regular IDPA shoot there -- obviously it's an indoor range, so don't expect the same experience as you would an outdoor one...
Pros
  • Knowledgeable staff with a strong customer focus. Everyone is friendly and helpful. This is my go to shop. Won't go anywhere else.
Cons
  • Haven't found one!
Shop here. You won't be disappointed. The inventory is always excellent. The staff understands customer service is important and they provide excellent customer service to the newbie and the expert alike. True professionals who enjoy what they do. It's obvious that ownership understands the importance of taking care of the customer and they hire the best to deliver that experience.
Pros
  • Clean, well staffed (usually), range, rentals, reasonable prices
Cons
  • Crowded at times
Been a range member since it opened, usually no waiting if you time it right. Decent selection of rental items and most staff are friendly and knowledgable. Usually have a reasonable selection of new firearms and prices are reasonable with room for negotiation at times.
