Best Gun Shop Miami 2013 - Stone Hart's Gun Club & Indoor Range
14280 SW 142nd St.
Miami, FL 33186
Named after Thomas Stone and John Hart, a pair of patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence, this Kendall hangout for firearm enthusiasts is filled with guys and gals who strive to embody the same kind of "resiliency, hard work, honesty, and leadership that these two great individuals demonstrated throughout their lives." Oh, and if it's the second or fourth Thursday night of the month, they'll also be blasting bowling pins with rented handguns ($20 for members, $25 for nonmembers). For amateurs, the fine, friendly folks at Stone Hart's offer "free monthly basic safety courses" as well as affordable $100-to-$149 "safety training, concealed weapon, and precision shooting, women-only, and family courses, among others." For the pros, though, just pack an extra-large shooter's bag, throw on your favorite conceal-carry Bermuda shirt, and go unload on one of Stone Hart's 16 shooting lanes, all for only $13 to $18 an hour. Other notable perks: free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and gourmet coffee.
i went a couple weeks ago, and it was my first time ever being around guns. the guys at the counter and the range officer at the lanes were nice and very helpful. they have rental packages for their guns, and the price is reasonable for everything you get (lane, gun, ammo, target, ear & eye protection, and the expertise of the range officer). if the range officer were a jerk, this would've been a bad experience; as it was, he was nice, patient (he had to teach me how to shoot!), and just generally seemed to care about his job.
also, i have to add that no one there was what i would call a "gun nut." i mean someone who's not socially adjusted and is just weirdly obsessed with guns. these guys are knowledgeable, but they're also normal and approachable.
They are amazing ! Service is 110% ! Attention is incredible ! Range itself is impecable ! These guys really are passionate about they're job and about making the customers experience unforgettable! My husband and i go every Monday ! LOVE THIS PLACE ! Definately deserves this Award !!
