“Today was my first trip out to Buffalo Range and it did not disappoint. Very helpful RSO’s, cheap ammo and solid facilities. 5, 10, 15 yard pistol, 50 & 100 yard rifle, trap rang and the plinking pit. Very impressive.”

“The best place around to go shooting hands down! I am able to bring all of my weapons there and have a range designated for each. Every range is patrolled and monitored by one of their range officers. They provide me with a place to shoot while also giving me the peace of mind that it is a very controlled environment.”

“Best range I went to so far hands down! The RSO’s on deck help me zero in my optic and were extremely friendly. I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to shoot at farther distances. They definitely earned a long time customer! ”

“First time visit along with my wife yesterday, 7/3. Was not disappointed & well worth the 1-1/2 hour drive. Staff very friendly & professional. Utilized the 100 yd rifle to zero my Ar & the pistol range. Definitely will be making return visits. Thank you Buffalo Range.”
