Education, Service, Commitment and Relationships

We want to help every customer become a safe, skilled, and knowledgeable firearm owner. That’s why our philosophy consists of four main beliefs: education, service, commitment, and relationships.



  • We stay current on industry knowledge for the benefit of customers.
  • We demonstrate how a product works, how to use it, and how to identify its pros and cons.
  • We participate in ongoing staff education so our team can provide helpful instruction for experts and novices.
  • We offer several courses, including the Firearms Safety Training Course (F.A.S.T), the Ohio Carrying a Concealed Weapon Course (CCW), the Ohio Retired Police Officers Recertification, and our own Shooting Technique Advancement Course (S.T.A.C).


  • We assist with firearm related paperwork.
  • We install accessories purchased at VRA for FREE.
  • We fit customers with the right firearms for their needs.
  • We show customers how to disassemble, clean, and safely shoot firearms.
  • We return VRA purchased firearms to manufacturers for warranty repair and manufacturing errors.
  • We provide help and encouragement on the ranges, explain range rules and guidelines, and make sure the ranges are safe and clean.


  • We continue to look for ways to bring our customers the most in education, inventory, services, and facilities.
  • We offer a NSSF Five Star facility that includes an expansive retail store and a highquality air filtration system in our ranges.


  • We want to build lifelong relationships that go beyond a single purchase.
  • We want to build trust in order to provide customers with a specialized buying experience.
  • We want to assist in all your firearm needs and help you become a safe, skilled, and knowledgeable firearm owner.
