OK range with reasonable rates. Can get busy on the weekends. Took my CCW class here years ago and they made an 8 hour class interesting. Some of the staff have additude... like working is hard for them. Firearm prices are a high compared with ordering a gun online and shipping to a private FFL or just go to a gunshow... way cheaper that way. But if I shoot indoors I come here.

I loved the service so much that I made this review as soon as I got back from my trip! Kelly was so helpful. I told her my situation and she not only showed me guns that I was interested in, but also guns she thought would also suit my needs and she was right. I really loved the suggestions, they were better for me! And she didn't do it in a pushy way, just genuinely wanted to help me. No matter if I paid more or less, so incredibly helpful. Will be back!

Every one was extremely helpful, polite and patient with me in the process of purchasing a gun safe. I will refer others.

Recently went to buy a bow and was a little discouraged by a few of my friends. They weren't to impressed with some of the staff there and said it was always hard to find someone in the bow department. I reluctantly went anyway and found a very nice man (Mickey)working in the bow department. He was very helpful and answered all my questions. He set up a bow for me to shoot and needless to say I bought it. Turns out he has only been there a week! I will return to target world as long as Mickey is working there. I have already told several of my friends about the new guy in the bow department and they said they would give it another shot. (Yes pun intended).

Great selection in safes. Not like other stores with cheap foreign safes I didn't trust. Tim was great and took his time to show us their selection along with helping us select the best one for our needs. We'll be back to fill it up soon!

I purchased my first pistol here... became an annual member... continue to purchase, shop and use the range often. First timers find the place a intimidating, whining wont help. If you want great gun information you need not go other places. Sure you will get opinions added in, don't act indignant, its what you really asked for in the first place... Sure the phone will ring off the hook... you cant tell if you will like a gun while you're on the darn phone anyway... the place is open nearly everyday, all day... just get yourself to the place where you will find one of the largest selection of ready to purchase weapons, ammo and accessories.

My daughter, Megan, has been taking archery lessons at Target World from Jim A for about a year. Jim is a fantastic teacher! Megan has steadily increased both her archery skills and her enjoyment of archery under Jim’s instruction. She recently had the opportunity to participate in an archery tournament that Jim organized and had a very positive first-tournament experience and is looking forward to competing again soon.

Have been buying and selling there for years. Helpful staff and the selection is huge. I bought my safe as well as most of the guns in it from Target World. Next I think I need to get a bow and it'll likely come from there as well.

What you want in a sports, weaponry store.

Ask for Andrew for the best help with guns....he's very knowledgeable and helpful. In general, we've found him to give us sound advice and assistance and most of the staff to be helpful.

Their tips on gun safety and use are also very good.

I visited the target world store yesterday with my niece. She just joined the NRA and wanted a gun for concealed carry. She purchased the Ruger LCR with the Crimson Trace laser grips. She shoots it well.



Their price and availability were excellent. Thanks.

My husband and I went in for the first time yesterday Guy working the range named Scott was so helpful. He took time to answer all my questions and was very patient and friendly. He's a man of few words, very direct and clear which I really appreciated. We will definitely be back and may take him up on his offer to buy a yearly membership.

Walked in 3 weeks ago needing a new bow string for a 2000 Hoyt Raider, they didn't carry bow strings in stock and had to order it. While I was there, i was astounded at the completely antiquated method that they oder things. A piece of paper that was printed out pre-1992 that they wrote in details, then told me it would be about a week for the order to arrive. I was ok with the week long wait as I understand the process of ordering, shipping, receiving, etc. However, it has now (today) been 3 weeks. I have called several times to inquire about my order and each time I am told, "Receiving is backed up, we haven't been able to process orders yet." I call BS. Additionally, every time I have called to speak with someone in the archery department, I have waited on the phone for someone to pick up, so long that the system hangs up on me (3 minutes of ringing). Call back and chose a different option, asked to speak with someone in Archery, transfer - same thing. They have no sense of customer satisfaction here. Ohio has an extremely limited rifle/gun season for hunting (2 days during deer season), where as archery season is the full duration. We're fastly approaching opening day for archery deer season and I'm sure several people are trying to get their bows in order to go hunting. I cannot fathom how they have remained in business this long (37 years) dealing with customers the way they have. Sure, being the only business in a wide area that offers the specifics they do probably helps, but I would personally drive 3 days out of my way to deal with a business that offers better customer service, support and ensures that everything I need is being met in a timely manner.



I am thankful that I didn't put a 'deposit' down on the items I need or pay for them before shipping.. I will most likely order the damn parts myself and take them elsewhere to have them fitted or by my own bowpress to put the strings in myself. I would not recommend this place, even if you have no other options locally, if you have any needs for your archery supplies. I can't rate it less than 1 star, cause they deserve zero.

My Wife and I visited Target World and everyone was very informative and friendly. Tim took a lot of time to explain all the Handguns and how to handle and shoot them properly. I really appreciated all their help.

Quite a few jerks on the staff. Recently, I was looking to purchase a Liberty safe. I tried to connect with Trevor for a week but only spoke through voice mail. I was purchasing this for my husband on his birthday. When we went to look at them in person, we were lied to multiple times. Lie #1- the black chrome costs $300 more on a Liberty Safe. Lie #2- the digital combination lock costs more than the manual one. Lie #3- this safe isn't a second it was just damaged in transit. Lie #4- shipping is free. The safe had a tag which arrived on it and stated what was wrong with the safe from the factory. Target World knowingly buys factory defective safes. The price on this Liberty Lincoln 35 was $3000 with steel gouges and paint defects. The explanation was that it had the black chrome and digital combination which made it worth more. I got the exact same safe with black chrome hardware for $2700 at Gander Mountain. Reason why I didn't order one from Target World? I called and asked for Trevor and the hours he said he would be working were incorrect. I spoke with the largest "business killer" employee at the place. I told him what I was looking to order. He mentioned that they have a safe like I want for $3000. I told him I was not willing to get a damaged safe for $3000 when I can get a new one from Gander Mtn for $2700. He asked if I could hold...came back on and told me that Trevor would be back in tomorrow. I told him I needed to order it today as it is my husband's birthday. He told me to "order it from Gander Mountain then!" Target World runs a shady practice when it comes to their safes. Don't fall for the free shipping. I am getting the safe and delivery cheaper than a defective safe with the exact same features. Go anywhere else! You will be treated better, not lied to, get a competitive price, and an overall better buying experience.
