Thanks, Outdoorsman! This shop is just what I wanted in a gun shop. Family owned and run, fairly close by, friendly service, and extremely fair prices. In the past year I have bought two guns ( Glock and a Smith & Wesson) from Gail and Paul, and each were priced at the point no one could match at the time. I have also taken personal lessons as well as their Conceal and Carry course. Each experience was well worth the cost, time, and effort. I am glad I found you and have enjoyed every experience at the Outdoorsman. Thanks again, Mike

I know paul and ed and the rest of the guys at this shop for quite some time.and i just have to tell you about my expierence here.about a monty ago i came in with my wife to get her asmall gun for home safety. I spent some time with ed and kyle and gail she is the ownets wife. There were all very helpfull but ed actually talked me out of a sale. I was ready to buy and he brought to light things my wife and i just didnt consider before purchasing a gun. After we talked he had us shoot several rental guns and then it all made sence. He told us it wasent about the sale or getting a gun.but rather the right gun. Ed you are a smart man. Paul where did you get this guy he absolutly knows what he is talking about..my wife choose a bersa thunder on eds reccomendation. She loves this gun and shoots it well. We also bought a safe he suggested. Because we have kids. Ed saved us about 400 dollars on the small gun we were about to buy and later shot and hated. We got a free month range ticket and put it to good use. We feel like you all took the time to really get to know what we needed and helped us get there...many thanks. Carl

Born and raised in Winthrop Harbor, IL and very familiar with the Outdoorsman. I have utilized the gun range and my children have taken gun owner safety classes there. However, their business of selling fireplaces from this establishment is substandard. After $4000 and 2 years of fighting with the owner of this store, the fireplace still does not work for the 68 year old widow that purchased it 2 years ago. Getting any kind of service for these units, defective or not, can take up to a year or more to get any kind of result. I have documentation of over 100 messages left for the owner and the problem still has not been resolved. The repairman is inattentive to the consumers needs. He is very slow in returning phone calls and does not carry through with the promises he makes. Only had the unit 3 months before it stopped working. Have been able to use the fireplace a total of maybe 8 weeks in the last 2 years. Very UNSATISFIED. The fact that they have taken full advantage of a 68 year old widowed woman is absolutely repulsive.

Business Response:

while we try hard to always take care of the needs of our customers, we are however sometimes limited in the options available to us through some manufactures. every attempt has and is being made to work with this customer in resolving the various issues that exist both by the store and the fireplace manufacture. we believe we have gone the extra mile to resolve the issues ,however we remain vigilant and will continue to seek solutions through the manufacture until proper operation and customer satisfaction are achieved.

This place is the best indoor range I've used, many times in fact. The customer service is outstanding, the range is clean, free of the loose cannons I've experienced at the outdoor ranges in Wisconsin that seem to have zero supervision. I absolutely love this place as they are close to my home, have modern equipment, great place to shoot my pistols. I am going to shoot my new S&W tomorrow. Best of all, I don't have to pay dues to join, donate 40 hours to clean like WI. dumps, no BS to deal with. Can't get any better.

I did all my research before I got there so I new I was going to buy it was just going in there firing it a couple time's and paying the man his money. Mike helped me out and showed me the Z7 tactial it was awesome with a little sweet talk the wife was sold on it to.. Well I was ready to buy it had it in my hand and then Mike said what color are your sight's,rest ect... ( camo ) pretty funnny on a black bow??? He could of just sold it to me and I would of had to buy all new hardware.. That is why I'm writing this is because of the customer service and not just for the sale. You guys have a great staff and a great store. Thanks Mike for all your help.

I recently had my 3 hand gun stolen and I wanted to replace them but I didn't know where to shop at I did a lot of internet surfing I went to the gun shop in Zion but didn't feel comfortable. a friend told me hey go check out the outdoorsman in the harbor.
Well I did and I am so happy I did I met Ed and he asked me what are you looking for? I told him that I had all mine stolen and could he please show me different ones? he said you bet. he showed me several hand guns and said I can show you hand guns all day but i't what you like then he told me what he liked which was the Glock 17 gen 4 9mm . I handled it liked it and said how much do I have to put down he told me and I picked it up last night.
I plan on going back today to shoot.when you purchase a hand gun you get one month free on the range.
I would recommend this store to anyone who want to be treated like a person.
Ed your great

I drove from WI to take advantage of the "Ladies Night" ad for the range. Prior to going, I called to verify the details and that it was still valid and I was assured that it was. When I got there, I was told they hadn't done that in years and I would have to pay full price. Only go here if you like getting jacked around.

Business Response:

Kelly, were sorry for the misunderstanding however we certainly donā??t feel that were (jacking people around) by running a limited time offer in the form of a ladies night free admission to the gun range. Itā??s usually active during the summer months only. We look forward to offering this opportunity again this upcoming year. The Outdoorsman Staff

I came in there the other day to get a hunting license and nobody would even say can I help you. I finally stopped someone and had to ask him for help. All I wanted was to get a hunting license and the people working there couldn't even find out how much a license would cost. They shouldn't even be open to the public, they can't even sell a hunting license. (I THINK IT'S A BAD PLACE TO GO TO ), I'm going to pro bass, they know there business.Sorry

Rick I can appreciate your desire for speedy service however with the recent addition of a very confusing new licensing machine and a limited amount of staff, we try our best to provide prompt service without making mistakes. We want to take this opportunity to offer our sincere apology if you felt neglected, and look forward to serving you in the future, The Outdoorsman Staff

I ...finally recieved my Matthews Z7 from the boys at Outdoorsman Sport shop. I ordered it on or about 24 Sept. and finally took delivery of the bow today (21 OCT). I confirmed (from Paul) that it had arrived on 5 OCT to the shop. I had to call them to find this out. I called them a week later to see if it was ready, but no one would answer the phone...I tried three times! Finally, I had to call them 5 different times and threaten them with demanding my money back and even considered contacting the Better Business Bureau to actually get my bow! I believe that I have a great product in my hands, but I would absolutely not recommend anyone to purchase it from these clowns. They might be very knowledgable about their industry but their customer service is non-existant. I bought it there, but I will not take it back there to get serviced...and it needs some adjusting already!!

Cordy its not uncommon for a new flagship bow during the peak of archery season preparation to take three weeks to get to the store, not to mention the lead time to set it up. as a small shop we strive offer the quickest turnaround time we can under the existing conditions, we do on occasions make mistakes but are always willing to do what it takes to (make it right). its not our policy to ignore the phones,or make you wait for no reason, honestly we just get pretty busy sometimes. I would extend an offer to you to bring your bow in for a tuneup so that we might provide you the service you deserve. and help you enjoy the fantastic Mathews product you purchased. we promise well leave the red nose and big shoes at home next time. Thanks The Outdoorsman Staff

I consider my self fortunate to live close to this shooting range.
You will find a low key atmosphere. The place is small but they can get you what you want if they don't have it.

The range its self is newer and up to snuff on all safety issues. I have been to ranges closer to chicago, out west where it is crowded, loud and seemed that no one was in charge. No reason to endure that anymore with the friendly confines of the outdoorsman.

I read here about this store and only because the reviews were good I called and set up a gun lesson with Ed. My wife and I went in not sure what to expect because we know nothing about guns. We got way more than we could have hoped for. Ed was very knowledegable and put us at ease right away. The lesson was amazing and we shot great. We can see why people make great comments about him, We further worked with him and bought a handgun that he reccomended. It works great and we love it. Chalk up another satisfied customer Ed, you do great work. We were very apprehensive to pick up a gun however you gave us the education we needed and now feel comfortable doing so. Go see Ed he is a guy you can trust, keep up the good work.
thanks steve and cara.

This past July I went in to check out the outdoorsman and to get some information of a possible handgun purchase for my wife and myself. I have shot before (retired law enforcement) but my wife has not. We decided on a Ruger 22 caliber handgun because the guy behind the counter (ED) spoke very highly of them. He took his time to show us why it was a great buy. He was sincere and very enthusiastic and did not push us into anything. We trusted him and bought one. All we can say is that he was right. It is a fantastic gun and my wife really loves to shoot it. We go shooting weekly now. So if you are looking to get into shooting, Trust Ed at the outdoorsman. While I was there I also took their recommendation on pepper spray. It was only 40 dollars but it is a really good item to have so we bought two. Thanks Ed and Ron for your help.

This is a great spot for outdoor sportsman! When going north from Chicago I make sure I take Sheridan Rd., and can't drive past it without stopping. There is always something new, they have a large selection of merchandise, and the people are great. Need advise or information on a product? This is the place to go.

My daughter (30 years old) and I got our FOID cards just for fun, and because we thought that our right to bear arms might be threatened due to the current presidential election. In high school I was on the rifle team (40 years ago) and shot a 22. My daughter had virtually no experience with fire arms.We signed up for a one hour lesson for $ 50.00 with Ed. By far this was one of the best investments I ever made. Ed spent an hour with us going over all the safety aspects of weapons and what the law is in regards to carrying and possessing firearms. He showed us how to stand and how to properly hold a gun. He was excellent! He then took us into the range. He was very detailed and made sure we understood everything very clearly. We fired a 22, a 38 and a semi-automatic glock. We were there for 2 hours. After an hour of instruction and an hour of shooting 3 different types of guns we felt comfortable with what we were doing. If you or someone you know wants to learn how to shoot, Ed at the Outdoorsman Sport Shop in Winthrop Harbor is the man to see. Excellent in all categories: Knowledge, politeness, patient, understanding, caring, equipment to rent.

They have everything you need. I went there for the shooting range. Very good prices and not that crowded. Matter of fact, every time I went shooting there I had the whole range to myself. They have everything from guns to arrows to fishing. They even have an archery range.

Every time i need items to use to go fishing, I usually stop here before going to the lake of choice. They have minnows, nightcrawlers, and other fishing supplies. They aslo have a gun shop, where it carries the needs of hunters and shooters alike.
They also carry fireplaces, stuffed heads of all kinds!!!!!!
So if u are ever in the area, you really need to check them out!!!!!

Well with the New Year upon us there are several changes in the air for the outdoorsman sport shop.

Due to the overwhelming response for Wisconsin and Utah CCW classes we have opened up a new classroom. as well as expanded our classes to include baslc, advanced and tactical CCW courses while maintaining our hugely successful one on one basic firearms instruction.

We should be opening a 20 yard archery 3d range very soon hopefully by the first of march for those die hard archery fans ( we understand ).

new items in the store include lots of CCW holsters and apparel. And coming very soon a beautiful line of liberty and gun vault safes.

For those into AR-15 platforms we hope to provide classes on building your own AR-15 from the ground up, more to come on that later this month.
