What We Stand For:
At Stoddard’s we’re about the shooter, not the shooting. That means taking into account the important customer needs that are otherwise neglected in the industry today. From our unique variety of training and education programs to our unmatched interest in your personal health and safety, we aim to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art firearms experience you won’t find anywhere else.
Movie buffs may gather that our name comes from the classic western The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. In the film, James Stewart plays Ransom Stoddard—a man who brings the values of lawfulness, civility, and education to the untamed frontier town of Shinbone. At Stoddard’s, we aim to bring these same ideals to the shooting industry.
We’re proud to provide law enforcement members with full-scale, state of the art training capabilities.
Ours is a firearm community, and we’ll welcome you to it. Our friendly staff of experienced industry professionals look forward to making you feel at home on the range.
To the team at Stoddard’s: Great job on the new facility. I am very happy that you have taken the initiative to open a facility on the west side. To those that have not been yet, you are in for a treat. It is truly a top of the line facility. From the computer controlled lane trolleys, to the top of the line air handlers. The employees are extremely helpful and courteous.
We were looking for something for home defense. Had shot some before, but never owned. They were super helpful in getting a gun for us picked out, showed us how to load/unload/clean it, and pointed us at their range. Range safety officer went out of his way to help us with a few tips, and the range itself was very nice. We didn’t expect this much help, as busy as this place gets, but they were all friendly and extremely helpful.
I took a gun safety class here and was very impressed. The instructor was super knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The class curriculum was thorough and taught everything a beginner should know, and we had range time during class so the instructor could make sure we knew what we were doing. The times I’ve been in the store the staff was very nice and helpful. The range is outstanding, it’s a very nice facility. I highly recommend this store and range.
Visited a lot of ranges in the Atlanta area & I have to say by far this the best shooting range ive been to. Employees are helpful, attentive & professional. Range quality sets the standard for all the others. Even though its a 30 min commute for me & there are other ranges closer I will only be shooting at Stoddard’s.
This is the place to go if you want to shoot, buy, or find ammo and supplies for shooting needs and wants. They have a great state of the art facility that no other range I have visited compares to. I recently purchased a firearm from here and it was a great buying experience. They gave me all the time I needed to look at their large selection of guns with no pressure then answered all my questions in a professional, polite manner. I highly recommend them, they always have something new so go check them out!!!!
