Hi Caliber Firearms Review

Recently I found out about a new gun store and indoor shooting range in Holly Springs, Georgia (Cherokee County), called Hi Caliber Firearms which is less than 3 miles from my house, so I had to check them out.  My first visit to Hi Caliber was to do some range testing on the Mako AR-15 Recoil Reducing Stock as well as sighting in of an LWRC M6A2 Rifle at 25 yards with a Horus Vision Talon Scope.  At my first visit, I didn't know Hi Caliber Firearms would allow a .223 caliber rifle on the range, but I was pleased to find out that you can shoot a rifle on any of their 10 lanes.  My other option would have been to drive another 15 minutes to a range that has only two rifle stations and where I would have to watch the clock because they charge by the hour.  Below in italics is what Hi Caliber says about their range and I used some photos from their website and Facebook site so you can see the range setup. You can see this information and more at the Hi Caliber Firearms website by going to this link.
  • The backstop is AR-500 steel, capable of absorbing all calibers except .50 BMG. This means rifles are welcome as well.
  • We have 10 lanes, which are each a spacious 4 feet wide.
  • We utilize a target retrieval system which means your targets will come to you from any distance up to 25 yards away No down time while others set up targets! 
  • At Hi-Caliber, we believe that shooting should be enjoyed without a ticking clock. We don't do hourly rentals. Instead, your rental fee means that you can shoot all day on one lane. If you leave and come back the same day, you can resume shooting as soon as a lane becomes available.

This was the first indoor range that I have ever visited that one price would allow you to shoot all day and that price was less than many ranges charge per hour.  This situation is nearly a dream come true for regular shooters.  I wish they would setup a local outdoor range because I know that would be very popular in this area also.

My first impression of Hi Caliber Firearms when I walked in the door was a good one.  The facility is new and the interior gives you the feel of quality right from the start.  This series of photos gives you a good idea of the store, layout and some of the products.

Over the past several months, I have visited the store several times and have gotten the opportunity to meet the owner and several of the staff.  Everyone has always been nice, helpful and knowledgeable about their products.  One thing I want to point out here is that Hi Caliber Firearms is a legitimate establishment supported by a quality staff.  Since Hi Caliber Firearms has a presence, it is nice to know that there is a real store and real people behind those Gunbroker products.

The last thing I want to comment on is their price.  I didn't do a price compare on everything in the store, but I did look up a few items.  The item that stands out the most was their price on the Smith &Wesson M&P 15-22 of $379.  Now that is a good deal.

Bottom Line:
I would recommend all aspects (store, range, Gunbroker) of Hi Caliber Firearms to anyone.  If you are in the Canton, Woodstock, Holly Springs area and have not visited the store and range yet, you should make it a point to check them out.  If you are looking on Gunbroker and see a product is from Hi Caliber, rest assured that this is a reputable business.
