Whether you’re purchasing or renting—we have what you need
Conveniently located on-site, our gun shop stocks a variety of firearms for purchasing or renting to use on the range. If we don’t have what you’re looking for in stock, we can order virtually any product from suppliers for your convenience. We also specialize in reloading and competition equipment. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find the right firearm or accessory whether you’re a competitive shooter, hunter, or collector.
$10.00 per handgun plus the cost of range time!
Rent from our selection of Smith and Wesson semi-automatic pistols and revolvers, Glock pistols, or .22 rifles. You must have a valid Connecticut Pistol Permit and purchase approved ammunition from the Blue Trail Range Gun Store on the date of the rental. Without a Connecticut Pistol Permit, you can book a private instruction lesson which includes safety instruction, eye and ear protection, proper firearms handling, range time, targets, ammunition, and will allow you to shoot handguns or long guns under the supervision of an instructor.
Currently rentals are available for .22 and 9MM only (due to ammo shortages). We offer private instruction for all other calibers. You MUST have a current CT pistol permit in order to rent a firearm and purchase our ammunition.
$25.00 per firearm. Reduced $15 fee to customers with a current Blue Trail Range membership.
