dont get me wrong, they have a great new gun collection, great ammo selection, great safe selection, but thats about it.. Accessory selection is ok, holster selection is mediocre, used gun collection is very limited. Their worst feature is very poor customer service after a buy and even worse gunsmithing!!!

Several months ago i bought a brand new glock from them. Out of the box it had problems.... On several occasions I brought it back with my concerns and I was advised by there sales staff and gunsmith to keep shooting it because I was still breaking the firearm in. 700 rounds later the problem was only getting worse, and asked them to send it in to glock for warranty due to the existing defect and a new defect that had developed.

The following day I recieved a call that they ""fixed"" the problems... They gave me a free range pass so I could test it out, I bought a box of ammo, and the 2nd round I fired hit me in the forehead (the original problem). I again requested that they send my gun back to glock for warranty... Two weeks and several phone calls later they finally sent it out! Their fix for my original problem was taking a pair of pliers and bending my extractor by hand. An extractor on a glock is a piece of stamped metal molded into a piece of polymer (plastic). It doesnt take an expert to know plastic breaks alot easier than metal...

I bought my first gun at Silver Bullet and now have taken 3 friends threre to buy their first pistols too. I read all the online reviews and like most other shoppers paid more attention to the negative ones and was leary going there. My experience was great! Contrary to other reviews, all the staff was very nice, helpful, and not arrogant. I had no first hand experience with guns but had read tons of stuff online, and they answered all my novice, ignorant, or stupid questions without judgement. They were patient and enthusiastic about someone getting into shooting sports. The sales people are very informed, and helped me find the best options for my needs. They did not show favortism to any brand and did not try to sell me the most expensive gun in my price range. The range is run efficiently, orderly and everyone is firmly and fully advised the the safety procedures to be followed, a protocol I appreciate. The staff helped me and did not judge my lack of experience, and in doing so earned my repeat business.

By far the best gun shop around! I have been to them all and by far they are the best! I have found slightly lower prices elsewhere but when shoping elsewhere I have had to point out which one was the 1911 (amid all non-1911 guns)! At Silver Bullet, they not only know what gun is what but every salesperson I have talked to (and I think I have dealt with them all) knows EVERY gun intimately!

Not trying to sound like a broken record...but they truly are top notch and fairly priced.

Facilities: Absolutly the best I have seen anywhere...certainly not the biggest but UBER clean, well lit, organized and well laid out. Pretty much every quality handgun availible is sold there and you can RENT PRETTY MUCH ANY HANDGUN AVAILIBLE TODAY! Long guns are few but that is not their M.O.

Classes: Absolutly AWESOME instructors, nice classroom and excellent one on one teaching when needed.

Range: I think about 15 lanes, both pistol and rifle...and full auto is allowed! VERY clean, safe and well lit. I wish they had a longer range for rifles (25 yds is max), but again...not their M.O.

I swear, I am NOT affiliated with them at all. But I have spent a TON of money there over the years and found them to be the best around (and I still visit them all quite frequently)...in fact, just picked up a nice lightly used 1911sc yesterday!

Go ahead and tell me I am wrong! :)

I love going to Silver Bullet! The indoor range is very nice. The staff is also very helpful and friendly. Silver Bullet also offers a large variety of firearms and supplies. Be sure to check with them on their safety and training classes. Those are very informative for the beginner or even just a refresher course.

This range has a lot of shooting lanes, reasonable prices, and professional atmosphere. I especially like the controlled shooting rule which allows rapid fire as long as it is controlled. This is rare for an indoor shooting range. I've also never had to wait for an appointment. This is a full service place in a great location.
