Love the range, the friendliness, the professionalism and the focus on safety! Everyone is so nice, helpful, knowledgeable and welcoming. I really enjoy it. I was looking for a range where I would be comfortable being brand new to this at the time. I found the website, along with having someone else recommend the range when I bought my gun. I picked this range based on feel, and because it had a chapter of The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) that likewise had a great feel to it. My first time at the range was the basic pistol training the end of July 2015. David Price and Pam Dixon rocked as instructors! They taught me to shoot a pistol for the first time, including my own, which was amazing. I highly recommend that basic pistol class! Then I went to my first TWAW meeting, and it was awesome, and the leaders Brittany and Pam are great! The CCW class that David taught that I went to in August was amazing, and I learned so much in it as well. I successfully obtained my CCW permit thanks to his help. I also learned how to travel with my firearm thanks to TWAW meetings (which I just did on a trip) and they also provide lots of great self defense information. I have been taking private lessons with David Price. He is a great teacher both in knowledge and in his ability to transfer and share that knowledge in a way that makes you comfortable and that makes the lessons fun. I teach myself, and I know what a hard balance that can be to successfully strike, and he does it well both in the classes and in the lessons. I highly recommend the private lessons! My shooting and related skills continue to improve every week, and there is always more to learn. I pretty much have a lesson scheduled every week for the next three months. I love shooting and this range and I give it my highest recommendation. They also support great charities. Finally "got 'round to it" and posted a review. Enjoy!
As a former Marine, I have high standards about firearms instruction, handling, and shooting. Matt, the owner, was the instructor for the class I took, and I am very impressed. His knowledge and gun handling is beyond good--and it takes a lot to impress me. I feel like I learned quite a bit during the class, and came away from it a better rounded gun owner. I would certainly recommend Sovereign Arms and Matt for firearms handling, CCW, and anything else related to firearms that you are looking for.
Very helpful staff. Friendly and knowledgeable. Nice selection of guns to rent from and plenty to choose from to buy new. I would highly recommend this place.
