I will start this with, " I have never reviewed anything online". The only reason I am doing this is because of the "Guy" that wrote the long bad review. I took 2 rifles to Bailey's House of Guns yesterday to sight in the scopes that I had just put on these guns. I had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and the range is just fine for shooting. I got there shortly after 9 am and it was not busy yet. At 10 am there were more people there and it was getting full when I left at 11. I had to have them bore sight one of my rifles, some how my boresight job only worked on one rifle. I took the gun inside paid my $6 and they did the job in less than 5 minutes. For some reason their boresight didn't work the first time and I had to take it back in for a re-do. They were not bothered by this at all. The lady, Shirley I believe, did the second bore sight job and asked the range boss to watch me shoot to see if it was user error. It was on paper the second time and he made sure that I knew where it was hitting and helped me make the necessary adjustments. If you are looking for ultra modern amenities, go somewhere else. The rest of us like this place just the way it is. If you want to shoot your guns with some nice people, and not gripe about trivial stuff come on out and join us. I will be a regular here. Thanks to all the staff.
Bailey's is a old fashioned family business that really does care about folks that come in. Staff will bend over backwards to keep you happy if they can. Some of them can be a little tough to know or crochety but that works to your benefit when you are shooting on a range with a lot of youngsters who are new to guns and don't know gun safety yet. The safety rules are enforced. Even though I do not personally agree with the single load rule I will not go to a range where gun safety is not enforced by the rangemaster. If you violate a gun safety rule Mrs. Bailey will personally make you wish you didn't and that is not a pretty sight believe me. Their prices are reasonable, not internet prices and don't expect too much for that trade. There are other places in Houston that thrive on used guns. Best: they will fix that nonworking gun you bought somewhere else long after the other store gives up on you. Sometimes for free.
Hey, all my former customers. Just a quick note to let everyone know I'm back at the 606 Reid St shop after a year helping out a friend at his shop. Parkhill is still the best repair shop in the city. I still have a wide selection of old and odd ball parts and if we don't have it in stock I can generally find it. Come on by I look forward to helping you with all your gunsmithing needs. 713 861 3234 9-6 M-F 9-12 Saturday. Thanks, Martin Tidswell.
