It's a big, roomy place with a large selection, at least compared to other LGS in this area. I didn't get a good look at their prices except to note that the price on a Ruger SR9C is only about ten bucks higher that what I paid yesterday at a different shop. They had a pretty big selection of accessories and I picked up a holster for my SR9C on my way out.
They have multiple ranges, and you can shoot rifles there unlike the other indoor ranges in town. The targets are controlled by a digital display unit and run out to 25 yards. They are very strict on the range rules compared to where I usually shoot at Bob's in Norfolk. You can't carry a loaded firearm inside, even with a concealed handgun permit. And they keep a range safety officer standing around keeping an eye on things, while Bob's just watches via camera. You must watch a safety and rules video before you can shoot there the first time, not just read and sign a form like other places.
Overall I was impressed, but then I didn't really take a good look at prices on anything other than holsters and an SR9C.
