I joined Gateway 6+ yrs. I was much surprised at the low ratings, but they were not recent experiences. I have introduced several friends as guests who joined and renewed. The facility is well-maintained. The office sells ammo as a courtesy, not as a profit base. The range officers constantly monitor. They are polite, and essentially return courtesy with courtesy. Yes, the 1st time you watch a 20 minute safety video. Typically, the other shooters who enforce the safety rules. The rules are simple, nonnegotiable, and everyone goes home at the end of the day without leaks. The club continues to make improvements as funds allow, particularly the pistol ranges for members and guests. This is and outdoor gun range, not a country club. Members are polite, helpful, but focus on their shooting, not yours. There are organized events if you are so inclined. The rifle range is only 200 yards. I would prefer longer. 500 to 1000 would be nice. B. Rhoden

I have used the few ranges available for day shooters for more than a year, and have found them adequate. Most of the ranges are members only so I cannot speak to them. The people in the office and the range safety officers have always been very professional and helpful. I an retired so I go out during the week which is less hectic than the weekends. I would consider membership but the application fee of $112 is outrageous.
This is a great outdoor range. The Range Officers are friendly and very helpful especially with new shooters learning how and what to do in order to be a good shooter. It is more than just point and pull the trigger. But new shooters need to ask for the help there are so many shooters that at times you can tell who is new, and sometimes you can't.
2/08/13 I went to the range today to shoot my AR because this was the only range that would allow me to fire it. After reading the other reviews, I was expecting the worse since I was not a member. I found the complete opposite. On both the pistol range and the rifle range, the safety officers were knowledgeable and extremely helpful.
