Gun For Hire at Woodland Park
1267 McBride Ave, Woodland Park, NJ 07424
Finally! The Tri-State Area has a premier indoor shooting range. New Jerseys only 5 Star Range is here! The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) established the parameters for a 5 Star Range to meet a minimum of 522 points in various categories. We are awaiting approval from the organization but at this point our facility has an incredible 651 points! If the NSSF had a 6 star rating, we would be it. We are very excited about the opening of this facility; its safe, heated and air conditioned, clean, barrier-free, with food service available. Imagine shooting indoors at 25 or 50-yards with your rifle, pistol, shotgun up to 50-caliber! Why we are your first choice in indoor shooting! Safety Both of our ranges are staffed with trained Range Safety Officers at all times. Convenience We have a lounge area, free Wi-Fi, caf on site, and plenty of parking. Before you visit another facility be sure you stop by Gun For Hire and experience first-hand why we are incomparable. Health We have the newest, safest range air purifying system available. This is often the most overlooked aspect when someone is choosing a facility. We spared no expense with our system because you are worth it. Environment - There is no other range like ours anywhere. The level of quality and amenities make us second to none, see for yourself. Our facility is modern, clean, and well lit. Training - If you know Gun For Hire then you know the level of quality training we offer. With over 21 years in the firearms training business, we have earned the right to say we are the best. Professionalism - We are a full time range and a full time training organization. This is not a hobby for us like others and it shows. What type of clothing is required to use at the range? Do you have a dress code? - We dont have a dress code, however, we recommend shooters wear closed-toed footwear and shirts that arent low cut to avoid getting burned by spent shell casings.
Since 1992 we have established an impressive list of satisfied students. We have worked very hard to develop the reputation that we enjoy. We will not and do not compromise our ethics or integrity for business. We will work hard to earn the privilege of adding your name to our list of satisfied students. Both of our ranges (13 port 25-yard and New Jerseys only public 6-port indoor, 50-yard shooting range) have a state-of-the-art, programmable turning target system. The target system is easy to use and quickly positions the target at the desired distance controlled from a digital keypad located in each lane. Our Range Safety Officers can help you select an appropriate, pre-programmed scenario to test your shooting skills. Your comfort, health and safety are our first priority. With this in mind, we have a custom designed heated and air-conditioned ventilation system that will keep the particulates and gas from your discharging firearm moving downrange at all times. When youre done shooting, you can relax in our lounge and watch other Club Members shoot or you can enjoy some great food at our "Rifle Camp Caf," which is located in the Club. Our entire facility is barrier free.

The staff is always helpful and friendly! Place is so clean and kept up it's great. Bought my husband the basic membership and he enjoys it and the benefits. Have bought several people gift certificates and they all have enjoyed thier experience and have come back again
It was our first time visiting the range so my husband and I weren't sure what to expect. It was clean, professional and everyone was so friendly and knowledgable. Louie was our instructor, he was awesome! Since it was our first time, we were a little intimidated but Louie set us up and guided us every step of the way until we felt comfortable on our own. We had an awesome experience and can't wait to go back.
There is simply no other range like this. Anthony and his staff are the most friendly down to earth people you will ever meet. They simply do not tolerate any unsafe activity and all go out of their way to make sure everyone is having a great time. They rent pistols and rifles and sell various products you might need while at a range. If you have a problem just step back and let one of the RSO's know, they come over and will do what ever they can to assist you.
It is hot inside during the winter and cold inside during the summer. During the winter they have it so warm a t-shirt is fine and during the summer you will not sweat one drop.
The place is inviting, brand new, clean and one you will be happy to bring your wife or daughter to.
Stop in for a tour anytime, they are proud to show you around.
From the moment I met Anthony and his Gun for Hire team I became a part of the Gun for Hire family! When they say this to you, they are not kidding! The classes are top of the line, informative and they never make anyone feel uncomfortable. The range is absolutely the most beautiful building I've ever seen! They have "spared no expense!" I would recommend the Gun For Hire range to anyone who is looking for a fun, comfortable and enjoyable time with good surroundings and company!
This range is top notch! It's a spacious and immaculate facility with large ports. Not an expense was spared when this place was built. I can't say enough great things about the staff and instructors. I am still relatively new to guns and have a lot to learn. The instructors have gone above and beyond to help me out without making me feel stupid. (A special shout out to Jimmy for always answering my dumb questions without laughing!) Women are encouraged to visit and we are treated as equals. It's also nice to see all of the families and children who visit. The café is a nice touch with good food and great coffee! Definitely check this place out!
I think, correction, I know Anthony put his whole heart and soul to this new wonder of a business to share with fellow shooters.
Run very professionally, with safety as the #1 rule and fun as #2.
His Instructors are all top key.
The place is great!
I have always said and still do that Anthony is my mentor as well as one of my best friends
Having visited a number of ranges in the area, THIS is BY FAR the most complete and pleasant facility I've seen. Anthony Collandro has created a world class Shooting Range with all the amenities. He has a very pleasant and knowledgeable staff to take care of your every need. Police Depts will be using it for their special training. There are 25 and 50 yard ranges with a total of 19 ports. In addition to having full shooting facilities they offer full NRA Training Classes as well as other specific courses for other needs. They have a full compliment of Ammo and an extensive firearms rental service. In addition to class rooms and a Podcast Radio studio. The range can accommodate up to and including .50cal.At the "Riflecamp Cafe" They offer delicious food for those waiting to shoot. All In all, everything you need to enjoy a visit to the Woodland Park Range! Memberships are still available. I love the place and I'm sure you will too!!!
