Generally speaking, it might be a little scary to enter a business by way of heavy doors, dark twisting hallways and multiple security cameras. What is this, protection from the impending zombie apocalypse? But if the business is an indoor shooting range, this is the sort of entrance you hope for. Not because you’ve read World War Z one too many times, but because firearms are dangerous and Bull’s Eye is the only place in St. Louis city where it’s legal to shoot one. Located in a nondescript white building on Manchester Avenue in the Hill neighborhood, Bull’s Eye is a pretty typical indoor range and gun shop. Lane time costs $17.50 per hour per person, and firearm rental is $14, plus $2 for eye and ear protection if you need it. Concealed Carry Weapons classes are offered, as well as firearms training for beginners up through advanced personal protection. And of course, guns. You can buy mostly new and used handguns, but there are a few long guns available too. Frequent visitors can save money with an annual membership: $250 for you or $350 for the family gets you unlimited range time, ear and eye protection and free handgun rental if you purchase range ammunition.
