Midwest Guns & Pistol Range
- BBB Rating:
Midwest Guns is the best place to go shoot and buy guns. Their staff are all knowledgeable and sincere in helping you make the best purchase. They aren't paid commission so don't ever pressure you to buy at all. I trust these people 100%. Sure....it's not the most beautiful to go but I'm not going there for a beauty contest. I'm so glad to have this place near me.
Everything was ok at this place the only broplem is the young skinny girl in the front she treat me very bad all the time for no reason so I was trying to avoid her all the time when I go thier but the last time I call the store to get information about a kimber pro cary 2 to buy and sadly she picked up the phone and she said yes we have a lot of kimber gust bring your FOID card and you ready to go I said I know you have a lot of kimbers but my question is do you have the pro cary 2 and she hanged up the phone on me very aggressively I was mad and dispointed I called back and a guy answer me I told him the girl gust hanged up the phone one me and he said it was accedntly hanged up and the true story thier is a broplem with that girl I'm not going back to that place again
Don't go. Pricey on everything and has nothing but derelics working there. They are all obnoxious and rude. Don't even get me started about the owner. This guy thinks his crap doesn't stink, yet he smells from a mile away. If you have to drive a little further, go to Mega Sport or GAT. This shop/range is old and falling apart. Not worth the money or aggravation. As a paying customer, you should be treated with respect. You won't get that at Midwest. I wish there was a zero star rating.

This place is a disgrace. When walking into the place, its filthy dirty and the staff is rude and inattentive.
First: Rented a gun to shoot. Both front and rear site broken
Next: Went into the dirtiest, oldest and most cramped range I've ever shot in
Then: Returned the gun - stood there for 15 mins as the rude staff didn't get around to the 10 second transaction of taking the loaner back and returning my FOID card - which they hold when you rent a gun.
Finally: They lost my FOID card - they have no idea what happened to it.
I now have to go through the hassle of getting another FOID - just waited on hold for 44 minutes to cancel current FOID, which is in someone else's possession.
This after hanging around this dirty crap hole waiting to see if they could figure out who gave my card away - of course, no one did. It must have magically disappeared.
Finally, they blamed the customer who took my card for not making sure he had the right one and then told me ""those who cast stones should not complain."" I still cant figure out what that means.
Seriously - stay away from this place. Drive to Mega Sports or JR shooting sports. Get the professional service and clean facility you deserve.
I just bought S&W .38 for my home protection and want to try out my new gun. For myself, I've never shoot any gun before in my life.
I choose this place because I saw many good reviews online. So we(me and my boyfriend) decided to drive 30 miles to this place to try out my new gun.
The place is not as big as we thought, we went inside and met with one white hair guy at the counter. He's never smile and when he talks, he talks straight to the point and professionally. No yuppy yuppy. We puchased ammo with them $22 for RWS 158gr 50 round box.(I checked the price online and the price is right) Everything very smooth and easy with no pressure at all. Then we went to the range and found that range is kind of old, but the guy at the range is very nice(Chubby guy) and enjoy to help any customers. You can choose any range that you want.
I recommend this place for people who're looking for no pressure and no rip-off range.

I only wish they had an option here for 0 stars.
Last year my dying father gave me the first .22 rifle I ever fired as a parting gift. Not knowing the condition, I brought it here for a clean/check. They quoted me $40 and would let me know if there's any problems with the gun. (Prior to dropping it off w/ their ""gunsmith"" I went through 10 magazines in flawless fashion in their range.)
1 month = no call
2 months = no call
3 months = ""The gunsmith is almost done, we'll call ya next week...""
4 months = no call
5 months = ""Sorry, we have been so busy selling guns and ammo since obama took over...""
6 months = screw you guys, i'm picking up my rifle.
I arrive, give them the claim ticket, open the box and find my rifle in a jumble of parts, as dirty as the day I dropped it off. Infuriated at this, I ask for a manager who tells me that's how I dropped it off with them, since their guy has NEVER and i quote NEVER been unable to fix a weapon.. He then goes on, and after looking at the dates on my service ticket, tells me I should feel lucky he didn't charge me storage..
I took it to another gunsmith who discovered 3 pieces now missing, and who also cleaned it up, replaced all the pieces and got it firing like new again for $110 in LESS THAN A WEEK.
Stay away from this place unless the zombies attack and they are the only guys left with ammo. Don't worry if you break in there to save yourself from the zombies, based on the quality of their gunsmith, I doubt their weapons work.
To Sum It Up:
