Firearm Rentals – Why Rent Firearms?
We all know that feeling of excitement that comes when entering a store to pick out new shoes, clothes and even when our eyes land on those new shiny guns at the store. However, it is not always easy picking a new gun that could work with us. There are many factors that go into choosing a gun to guarantee that it fits us perfectly. Being overwhelmed by a bunch of different options in front of you can make your decision difficult especially when there’s a wide selection of guns to choose from. And when it comes to investing a good chunk of money in something that we might not like in the long run, it can really prevent us from buying anything at all. This is why at Smokin’ Gun Worx (SGW), we offer rentals from handguns, revolvers, rifles and Gatling guns at our range so we can test out these new guns and see which one the best fit for us is.
Renting a gun can really help us experience and understand new guns so we can figure out if we would be happy using it in the future or if it might not be a suitable pick. By renting a gun, we can test out the recoil while we shoot at the targets and see whether it feels as good as it looks. Renting a gun can also offer us some quality time with the gun before deciding on whether we should jump the gun and make a purchase or if we should hold back. It also gives us the opportunity to really think about our purchase and if it ends up being rejected because it didn’t fit our needs then it doesn’t hurt as much since it didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Although there are online reviews of most things these days that we can read or watch, it’s always better to have a hands-on experience especially when there are hundreds of guns to choose from. When we make any kind of purchase, we always test it out to ensure that we are confident in its functionality and whether it fits our style and the same goes for guns. We want to feel confident in our purchase so instead of spending hundreds of dollars that could lead to buyer’s remorse, head to our range and make a small investment by renting a handgun or rifle. Here at Smokin Gun Worx you can rent one of our 73 rental firearms to use at our indoor range. We have pistols, revolvers and rifles in many calibers. Keep in mind we are always adding more. Rentals are currently $15 for 1 handgun, $30 for 2 handguns, $35 for 3 or more handguns and $50 for Gatling gun on top of purchase of ammunition.
