  1. Thanks to everyone for their concern.
    We at Garden State Shooting Center had an accidental discharge of a .22 caliber handgun by an employee. The employee injured his own hand. No other parties were involved. The employee was treated and released by the hospital.

  2. You at Garden State Shooting center force experienced gun owners to watch a safety course but your employees dont? Try unloading your rentals before putting them back on the shelf so your patrons lives are not at risk.

  3. Thanks for the update. We were concerned, glad to hear that the employee will be ok. Warm wishes to you and your entire staff for a blessed 2017.
