Ann Arbor Arms is an excellent range. Building is maintained well and staff are helpful and very professional. Brought some friends to target shoot, with little experience, and the staff was very helpful to teach gun safety and make the event fun and educational. Robbie was our instructor and he was excellent. I recommend taking a private session with him. Great time with Great Friends. Thank A3.
Tim and his Team of professionals are on their game at all times. I have purchased several firearms from them and every time is the best experience! I had an issue with a firearm and Tim took steps to far exceed my expectation and that just gave me another reason to be as committed to them as a customer as they have been to me! Great Place, Great People!
Huge shoutout to Robby, I spent an hour learning about handguns from him. After about 15 or 20 minutes in the classroom, we went to shoot.
He was very patient with me in making sure I had a correct stance, was holding the gun correctly, and making sure I focused on the front sight.
Robby was able to tell me when I was anticipating the shot, and was constantly reminding me to focus on the front sight. Which I am grateful for because I was able to spend less time worried about the shot going off.
The whole time we were together he was telling me how well I was doing, he’s an awesome instructor and I can’t recommend him enough.
A great lesson yesterday with Drew A. He really has an exceptional ability to teach (easy-going, focused, solid core of understanding, great attitude, and real-world experience). I especially appreciate how he can pick up on problems I am having, tell me and show me how to fix the problems, and then guide me through fixing them. I am learning fast with him and enjoying the lessons. As I mentioned to Bill the other day, A3 is really a good place to train, and the people working there make it an exceptional place.
Today I entered my first gun store and was almost immediately greeted by the friendly and affable Tim. Tim knew immediately how to speak to me to make me comfortable with discussing and purchasing firearms and within moments he had me looking at handguns. I was not intending on leaving with a gun, but without being forceful or pushy in any way whatever anxiety I had about acquiring a firearm was removed. I’m proud to be among the type of person like Tim that take personal accountability for themselves and the safety of others potentially.
I purchased my second firearm within 6 months from A3 recently. In the between time, your staff members were always friendly as I made my way to the range, or “shook hands” with a potential next firearm. They recognized me, greeted me, making me feel welcome, even though they knew I, presssed for time, was only looking, studying, planning. For example, Tim provided great advice regarding “medium-sized guns”, which informed my final choice. Jake was exceptionally helpful, garnering the trust of my novice shooter wife. When the time came to “pull the trigger”, I made sure that one of them would be booking the sale. Tim was slammed, so Jake processed the transaction smoothly, as I was (per usual) in a tight window.
Were I to offer a star-rating for Jake, I’d give him 5 Stars, plus 1 in the chamber.

Just finished up with the Fighting from a vehicle class taught by Andy and Jeff. These two are awesome instructors with a ton of knowledge and skills. Ohhhh Yaaaaa and a great sense of humor making the class fun and exciting.
The staff at A3 are super friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend A3 100%.
Excellent facility that offers unique training that differs from the typical indoor gun range. This facility certainly has its own speciality catering to self defense needs. Staff is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and polite, particularly Buddy who helped me with one of my purchases. Fantastic firearm shop and range with superior customer service that is worth the drive!
I wanted to thank you, A3, for organizing the Trap Shoot event today. This was absolutely an awesome experience! Everyone was kind, and supportive. As always, the A3 team ensures safety as a top priority.
Thanks and I look forward to the next event.
Hi Joy. We had a great time. The guys are still talking about how much fun they had. Several of us have been to many, many ranges, gun clubs and other businesses similar to yours. Often the staff lacks service oriented interpersonal skills. Or are just down right rude and arrogant. From the time we walked in the door we were greeted by every staff with a smile, offer to help or direct us to where we needed to go. Your customer service is absolutely amazing. The range safety staff was incredibly polite and instructional. The folks helping to select weapons and make our purchases were made great recommendations based on our needs. The gentleman whom checked me out after buying a shirt, shook my hand at the end of the transaction. Then thanked us for choosing your business to host our event. I enjoyed working with Ann Arbor Arms. I was also very pleased to have worked with you personally.
Highly recommend Ann Arbor Arms! Being a first time CPL holder and now own my first gun, I had a lot of questions and all the staff helped a lot! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and made me feel comfortable. I have been to a few ranges and this is the only one so far that my dad and I enjoy going to. If you stop in, ask for Buddy, he definitely has been the most help there!
Stopped in for the first time yesterday and was very impressed by both the store and the staff. Buddy was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly as he went over everything the store offers. My only complaint is that your not located in Lansing where I live! I’ll definitely be burning some gas to come try the range soon.
I am really enjoying the classes I’ve signed up for so far. It’s a long story but I am having fun again after a long drought. Your expertise and approach to training is excellent and I hope you provide a lot of instruction for upcoming events.
I just finished my fifth of eight private lessons with Robby: they’ve been worth EVERY penny! He’s got practical skills and credentials up the wazoo (see his video). Even more impressive/important for me is that he’s got a great eye and the patience to teach the fundamentals before the ‘sexy stuff’…
He shows me, and tells me WHAT. Then gives me time to shoot and find it for myself a solid number of times before tweaking my technique and/or challenging me further.
Whatever your level, he’ll see your weaknesses and compliment your strengths: if you are willing to do the work, he will absolutely assist you in getting better. Zero doubt.
Just wrapped up a virtual CPL class with Robby Torres. Robby is a great instructor. Thank you for finding a way to keep the CPL classes going during these times.
I recently took a Virtual CPL class from Ann Arbor Arms and it was great! Robby Torres was our instructor and although there was a lot of content to cover, he was very knowledgeable and explained it all in a way that was understandable and clear. He was professional and took the time to answer any questions that we had. I highly recommend taking this class if you are looking to obtain your CPL from staff who are experienced and are patient to new gun owners like myself.
I recently went through a Virtual CPL class, Robby did an excellent job. He was thorough going over the technical text and even though it was a virtual class, he managed to use different firearms to demonstrate what the text was trying to convey. This won’t be the last class I take with him. Thanks for your effort is this odd time we’re all going through.
Great class, Robby! You are an excellent and patient instructor. You have obviously put a lot of effort into the drills, which are incredibly helpful for reinforcing the basic skills and layering on more complex processes. Thank you for your dedication to the details. I hope you will do as you mentioned – split the Intermediate/advanced class into two classes. More learning, more fun.
