So we reviewed their website before going to the range and redeeming our Groupon. It said to fully enjoy your experience please show up to the range a minimum of 2 Hrs before... More

An different approach to Valentines Day was to take the girlfriend to an evening of shooting guns and cooking fun! Both sessions were great and we found out that these combined shooting & cooking evenings are part of regular events at the shooting edge, which are very well organised, fun and run by experts. The foodie section has a dietitian... More

What a great way to start a day! This was the first time my husband and I had been to a shooting range and our instructor, Nate, was very personable and informative. We each had handguns and 50 rounds of ammo and after the thorough introduction we headed to the shooting area. It was very loud and I would recommend... More

Spent a half day with most of my work mates shooting a variety of firearms. We had an excellent class teaching us how to operate a variety of firearms safely. Our instructor also stayed with us in the shooting range and insured we were safe and sound. Excellent time. I purchased a second session before I left.

I bought a membership this year for the first time. I was concerned that I would not get the full value from it but as it turns out the membership was easily worth the cost. The staff are very helpful and courteous always eager to assist. The facility is always tidy and well kept.

Range officer, Colin, was very knowledgeable. On our first visit there were no available range offices so Colin came in on a day off to let us shoot. Great customer service. Guided us on guns, showed us how to improve our shooting. Was patient and did not rush us at all. Shot pistols and rifles, great fun.

The shooting edge is a great place to develope shooting skills and practise with most types of firearms. The Staff are friendly and helpful and the range is well kept and clean. They have additional evening events that look fun and have a connection with Poppy Innovations for a coming and evening out with your sweetie.
