Map & Details>>

Most people think of tying one on come Friday night, but there's something to be said for popping one off instead. Bull's Eye, the only indoor shooting range in the city of St. Louis, rents pistols, rifles and one brand-new full-auto, an Uzi, till 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Where else in town can you test your weapon of choice without leaving the store? Bull's Eye is also the only full-scale, full-service gun shop within St. Louis' city limits. The place has been around for 26 years and doesn't foresee scaling back, no matter how much the "anti-gunners," as owner Jim Stephens calls them, may multiply. One night you might run into a Russian competitive marksman shooting "bulls-eye," or one-handed. The next brings a south-county woman with her purse slung over one shoulder, and a father-son tandem. (Kids are welcome.) As Stephens says, "We do have a big mix. You can go from the lowest of the lows to the highest of the upper class — literally." Cost varies, depending on how much ammo does the job for you. (The bring-your-own-gun-and-bullets option clocks in at $15 or so.) And don't plan on buying that Uzi — federal laws make it only available for rent.

I am one of the safest shooters in Missouri. While I was shooting the man (the owner I think) told me over the loud speaker to send the target farther out. I complied even though the target was already far enough out. This was just a way of ordering me to do something. When I went to get a new paper target he was again rude and threatened to �kick me out� for having the target too close.

Christian,

Were you shooting a rifle? If so then the target has to be in position at the end of the lane, and no shots above the middle of the 10.

at a shooting range safety is top concern. If you are a new face then the staff has to assume you're an idiot for the safety of those present. I can say as a white man I caught flack from every employee at Bullseye, Including Alva who happens to not be white, until they felt comfortable with me.

and by the way, saying that you're the safest shooter in Missouri means you have no idea what you're talking about.

a test for you "Mr. Safest Shooter in Missouri":

1.)how many safety features were present on the first generation of Marlin rifles and how were they implemented? What safety features were added?

2.) What is unique about the Winchester's trigger mechanism on shotguns pre 1960 that will cause an a.d.?

3.) What is a.d.?

4.) what are the "conditions" of a semi automatic pistol.

I have the worst expierence at Bull's Eye as well. The owner dude was one of the most rudests people I have ever met. I think he hates people who are none white.

Bull's Eye Indoor Pistol Range located on 5100 Manchester Ave in St Louis, MO. (zip 63110) abuses customers. My name is Christian Peper. Some time ago I made the mistake of going to Bull's Eye Indoor Pistol Range to shoot. I am one of the safest shooters in Missouri. While I was shooting the man (the owner I think) told me over the loud speaker to send the target farther out. I complied even though the target was already far enough out. This was just a way of ordering me to do something. When I went to get a new paper target he was again rude and threatened to �kick me out� for having the target too close. I remained very polite. I finally left and the man was waiting in the parking lot in his red corvette and followed me so he could record my license plate number. Because he is a dumb hick he thought by being rude to me (I have a mixed ethnic background) he was somehow fighting terrorism. I have never been so abused as a customer.
