First time visiting this business and was very impressed. Store front is very clean, open with plenty of natural light and very well organized. The indoor shooting ranges are brand new with 6 lanes for pistols and 6 separate lanes for shot guns, ARs etc.By far the cleanest and nicest indoor shooting ranges I’ve been to in the area and I’ve been to them all.The staff is very friendly and engaging. No doubt we’ll be back many more times in the coming months. We are planning on purchasing a membership and taking some classes.

This is such an awesome place. Bart, Ed and the rest of the team are truly fantastic to work with. The store is very well stocked and organized. They have everything you could ever want or need. The range still looks brand new and we had such a great experience. I highly recommend. Can't wait to spend more time there and the best part is they are close to our home.

This is a FANTASTIC range. While the facilities are EXCELLENT, it is the STAFF that truly makes this business stand out.I’ve found EVERYONE there incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. Particularly, I would like to single-out Dan, whose graciously shared advice undoubtedly has and will continue to make me a better shooter.This range has a friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere and is welcoming to those with all levels of experience (I brought my son here for his first time shooting).On the sales end, Survival Trail has everything I’ve needed, and the staff’s expertise and knowledge of every product they carry is complete.Prices are very reasonable and congruent with other ranges in this area. I give Survival Trail my highest recommendation. If you are looking for a gun shop/range…I highly suggest you visit…I am sure you will be happy you did.

From start to finish,had nothing but a great time. Checked in with Ryan,ran a few hundred rounds with my brother and my nephew,and created a new weekend ritual. On the way out,checked out a few items and will return to purchase. Thank you Ryan for allowing me to pick your brain and get the answers to my questions.
