Best Shooting Range

Bull's Eye

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.
