The Gun Store @ 2900 E. Tropicana

We’ve all seen the taxi cabs around town with the signs featuring a picture of a machine gun and “Try one” written on them.  Those are ads for The Gun Store at 2900 E. Tropicana here in Las Vegas.  Clearly their ad campaign is working as this place keeps busy day in and day out.

Although the main attraction here is the gun rental counter and the shooting range, they also have a fully stocked retail store where you can purchase firearms and most of your basic shooting necessities.

The Retail Store

The Retail Store

Many visitors to Vegas come from countries where standard citizens are not permitted to own semi-auto firearms.  At The Gun Store, not only can those people shoot semi-autos but they may also take their pick of around 15 different full-auto machine guns.  Not only does this make for a memorable vacation but the staff are camera friendly and will even let you pose for photos with the guns on the range.  You may bring in your own firearms as well; however you must purchase ammunition directly from The Gun Store for use in their ranges.

Beginners and advanced shooters alike will find a comfortable atmosphere along with both male and female range masters.  The $10.00 range fee is waived for all ladies on “Ladies Day Tuesdays.”

Public and Qualifying Ranges

Public and Qualifying Ranges

The Gun Store features three different indoor ranges:

The “Public” range has multiple firing lanes and is where most people go to shoot.

The “Qualifying” range is a lot smaller than the public range and is intended for those wanting special instruction and/or shooting qualification for conceal and carry permits.  It is also used for overflow from the public range when things get busy.

The “V.I.P.” range is for those wanted a more private place to chill or maybe entertain guests.  This range has leather seating, complimentary beverages, and they throw in a few gifts for each person too.

The Gun Store also caters to larger groups and can even brand the targets with your company name and logo.  It’s a perfect place to take a group of clients to show a little appreciation and let them experience something they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do.

    As seen in your video this place is full of idiots. It’s a tourist trap and nothing more.

    I recently purchased a Ruger SR9 at The Gun Store. I got the pistol for $115 less than the suggested retail on the Sturm-Ruger website– so I was happy with the price. The service and salemanship I received in the store were very pleasant and professional. The Gun Store treated me OK….

    I recently took my CCW class at the gun store. I was a little hesitant because of some reviews I read online about them being stuck up and not very helpfull. I don’t know who taught the class for those people who had writen bad reviews but the instructors I had were very versed and good at making sure to explain things in detail. I have been around guns my whole life and feel I have a pretty good understanding of them but I never felt like I was talked down to or made to feel like I shouldn’t be there. My experience was the exact opposite. I felt that the instructors did a great job of keeping the class on track and covering the necessary information anyone needs to be an informed CCW holder for everyone from the avid gun owner to a first time shooter. I felt very safe as they have several checks, rules, and instruction that put everyone on equal ground and made sure there was no worry if the person sitting next to you had any experience or not. There was at least one guy in my class who I’m sure would write a bad review because he was told to come back and requalify due to the fact that on two separate occasions during qualifications on the range he turned his loaded weapon across the range and directly at 4 of us after being warned over a dozen times to keep you weapon pointed down range. I thought that the guys running the range did a great job of keeping everyone safe and at the same time giving the guy ample chance to correctly handle his weapon. I’m sorry but that’s not errogance it’s proper safety but I know that guy was pissed. Over all, a free CCW class where all you have to pay for is your ammo to qualify with a competent staff!! They just earned my continued business.

      Oh and before someone implies that I’m might be somehow affiliated with the gun store, I couldn’t be further from it. I’m a teacher in the Clark County School District and simply have a great appreciation for good class room management and a teacher with a full understanding of the materials being taught. I also know what it’s like to have errogant know it all students and parents who think they could do the job better.
