– Dalton Jay Dvorak

“I’m looking into purchasing a new handgun and this is THE PLACE to go to rent a variety of handguns to see what you like before purchasing. Great customer service. Jerome was so helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. Based on what I told him I was looking for, he recommended a pistol that I probably wouldn’t have tried and it ended up being my favorite! Would definitely go back again!”
