I am Stephen Barnard and I am a member with my daughter at Blackbeard Armory. I have been there since April, have bought guns and have had guns worked on. Tap Smith is the best, him and his staff are amazing. Not only is the customer service great but he always makes it a point to make sure all is good. I sent my nephew to him to buy a firearm and Tap had no idea he was my nephew. My nephew told me how awesome he was and how he treated him and bought a firearm from him. Nice to know that their are some people left that have good character and are honest. Also when I bring my daughter and 13 year old nephew to shoot at the range Less is amazing with young kids, my daughter loves him. This review is no B.S. Blackbeard Armory has been a great place to do business with and would highly recommend them.

I’ve visited frequently from out of state and they treated me like a local. Impressed with their knowledge, attention to detail and quick turn over on modifications. Tap always calls me by my name even if it’s been a bit. Their prices are competitive to any place and their customer service is 10/10 in my view. Thanks for your expertise

I have taken classes from Tap in the past and bought a couple guns in the past and have been very happy with the attention to detail and service I have received. Today I was shopping for a rifle to go elk hunting with and found the perfect rifle and scope at the right price thanks to the service and advice I received from Tap. Tap and his wife were so helpful and made my experience so enjoyable! I have been and will continue to be a returning customer!!!

I have known Tap, his wife and a good portion of the staff at Blackbeard for a number of years and can’t speak highly enough of them so when I found out that Tap and his crew would be heading up their own shop, I immediately started trying to find out just how soon I could start purchasing anything and everything from them.This great family of business people faced a lot of challenges in getting started but once they did, they showed just how much they deserve every ounce of praise they have ever received. From facilitating outside transfers, helping individuals make educated decisions on what to buy in terms of firearms, ammo or accessories and right down to opening the door for a customer with a few too many things in hand, Tap and his crew show by example, every step of the way, what it takes to make any business a great one.Experience, patience, integrity, knowledge and service are just a few of the key words I would use to describe the people who make this store such a welcome success for the greater Texoma area.I could go on with so many more accolades for Blackbeard Armory and Range but the review would take a day just to read. Head on over to Blackbeard Armory and Range and let the staff there show you why they have so many amazing reviews. Even if you walk out empty handed somehow, I guarantee that you’ll be pleased with every minute of your visit there.

I had an urgent/ same day gunsmith need and Tap and his wife were extremely accommodating. I showed up during a busy time but Tap step aside and fixed my gun on the spot. He even tested it on the range. I was amazed by their generosity and level of service. Plus, they have all sorts of ammo in stock and a wide array of firearms. Clean store, great service, friendly faces and amazing inventory. I will be a repeat customer for sure!

Best gun range I have visited in last 10 years. This gun range has been completely remodeled and updated, the air conditioning is excellent. The range officers are very helpful without acting like you are bugging them, very knowledgeable and they tend to correct any issues with humor, unless it is a safety violation that needs stronger correction. Truly a welcome contribution to our local community.

Took a trip to the range with my wife and my daughter. And my daughter's dumb boyfriend. Gotta tell you, I've shot at just about every indoor range in the Dallas area. This range was by far the most comfortable. Temperature and humidity were as comfortable as I would have been at home. Ventilation was on point. The bullet trap is chunks of rubber so dust was minimal. Had a great selection of firearms and I was shocked to see a decent selection of ammo. Friendly staff. The wife said she felt comfortable enough to go back by herself or with my daughter. Overall great experience. Y'all keep up the good work.

Great experience and super friendly staff. Highly recommended for indoor shooting on these hot Texas days. Kevin was absolutely the best, above and beyond to help and share his knowledge. The dude can shoot too, I was zeroing and optic(RMR on handgun) and he drove 3 shots through the same hole to confirm I had it zeroed properly… amazing. I would go back just to shoot the crap with Kevin. Great company… go see them.

It's always a pleasure to deal with Tap and the crew; knowledgeable, professional, courteous and friendly. You get on a "first name" basis really quickly! I shot at the range last week, and it's a great experience. The entire store layout is clean and inviting, the choice of products far more than adequate. I look forward to spending lots of time here.....

A nice new range that has just opened up near 82 and Texoma pkwy. It is tucked in behind Aaron’s if your looking for it. A nice clean facility with a range that goes out to about 20yds for pistol and rifle. Current hourly rates are $25 for shooting pistol and $35 for shooting rifle. You can share the lane with one more person for an additional $15. My 7yr old son and I visited them to work on his fundamentals and he had a blast. The range safety officer was great at helping me reinforce the basic firearm safety rules and range etiquette with my son. I would highly recommend if you need a good clean range as well as a good stock of firearms in the store.

I’ve been coming to Blackbeard since before the new range opened. Tap and Les are very cool, friendly and knowledgeable guys— not the pushy salesman type in any way. I became a range member and had an excellent experience with their state of the art range; including quiet and fast ventilation, bullet proof shooting stalls finished in a gorgeous wood facade, and a touch-screen target controller. I highly recommend coming here for all of your firearm needs (and fun)!

Blackbeard Armory and Range is the place to go for your guns, ammo, and accessories. It is also a great place to meet the nicest people. They are knowledgeable and love to talk guns. I’m pleased to say I’ve now purchased three handguns with them and the service and experience was to notch. My wife and I have become interested again in shooting and look forward to continued visits to the range. My experience with Tap, Les, Kerry, Elizabeth, Dan, and Shelby has developed into a great new friendship and love of the sport. See everyone again soon! Pew Pew!!

This place is amazing! I went to a different place and they had HORRIBLE customer service and so I quickly went back to Blackbeard Armory and Range. Everytime I go there I get a friendly welcoming and amazing customer service! They're very knowledgeable and give a lot of good advice. I went back twice in the same day and probably stayed for more than an hour. The store is beautiful, great selection and everybody there treats you like you're a friend and like they've known you for a while. I strongly recommend this store! 💜 Thank you guys so much!! Definitely going back!

Blackbeard Armory faithfully put my name on a rifle and pulled it from the shelf with an over the phone request. When I arrived at the store, they expertly laid out the features and functions of the Henry 45 lever action rifle I asked them to set aside.Then I changed my mind.They didn't care.They asked me what I was looking for and then laid out a rifle that perfectly fit my needs for a reasonable price. The gun smith in shop helped me pick out sights and immediately mounted them.The background check, which is out of their control, was a little lengthy waiting for the computer on a Friday night, but they were patient and friendly, with a place to sit and lots of pretty shiny things to look at while you wait.My over all experience was excellent. I can't wait for their new range to open up!I highly recommend Blackbeard Armory for your rifle and pistol purchases.

Tap, Elizabeth, Les and the entire Blackbeard team are incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! I have been a customer since the first day and can’t recommend this team enough. Their whole goal is to provide each customer with a safe and low pressure experience while making sure that everyone who passes through their doors is attended to and satisfied.

The store does get crowded at times but these folks are always working their hardest to see that each customer receives their attention and best service!

Even though Blackbeard Armory isn’t open just yet, I already know it will be a 5 star spot when it does, by September 2020! Tap has provided me excellent service and training for a little over a year now. Elizabeth has also been a friendly face at the place they worked previously.Tap gave me professional recommendations that were not sales driven. I’ve bought all of my “tools” from Tap. None of them were the most extensive options, and all have been a joy to use.
