Let me be perfectly clear that I’m not here to beat a dead horse. In fact, just the opposite. As many of you know, the reputation of Discount Firearms and Ammo has not been the best over the last few years. All that has changed when the new owners took over the shop in the fall of 2010. Today the shop looks vastly different. It’s clean, repainted, and the merchandise layout is much better not to mention a significantly increased inventory of new guns, ammo, and accessories. Although some of the same staff is still there, the quality of customer service is a primary focus of the new owners and the staff is eagerly following their lead.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Discount Firearms, they are the closest retail gun shop and shooting range to the Las Vegas strip. They have one of the better indoor ranges in the city and offer gun rentals including 50 handguns and 11 full auto machine guns. The range itself has 14 lanes which are 75 feet long and feature programmable targets with time delay, distance, and 360 degree rotational targets. Fresh air is constantly being circulated and the entire range is refreshed every 85 seconds. If you bring your own guns you can also use your own ammunition. Although the range is designed to handle up to .50 cal, anything over a 454 or 45-70 can blow out the lights so leave your .50 at home.
All range fees include a target, eye, & ear protection. Most of their class III guns run $50.00 for 50 rounds with the exception of their belt-fed RPD and Browning 1919 which cost a little more to shoot. Hand guns run $35.00 to $75.00. Discounted group packages are available.
Discount Firearms also offers CCW classes every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Their classes can handle up to 22 students and Multi-State classes are available as well. Although they do have a full time instructor, at present time they are seeking qualified candidates for additional training positions. If you have the proper NRA, PILB, and White Card certifications then you may want contact them.
Whether you are an avid hunter or a black rifle fan, they have you covered. The store offers both new and used guns and if you’re looking for ammo, D.F. stocks 750k – 1 million rounds on any given day.
If you’re like me and experienced some “issues” with the prior ownership, do yourself a favor and stop by again. Check out the changes, meet the new owners, and see the difference for yourself. I’m glad I did and hopefully you will be too.
