    Went to buy some ammo and ended up shooting for about an hour. This is a great place and a wonderful staff. I plan on going back often.

    Was visiting area over the July 4 week and made some plans to go to Windy Hill to do some shooting. All I can say is…WOW.. Staff, facilities are second to none.. Shot 3 rounds of 5-stand with our group and had a enjoyable time. 5-Stand range is around varied terrain with a gentle breeze blowing up from the mountians. Made the birds move around and added a little more challenge to the day. If your in the area..make plans to go to this place..You won’t be sorry.

    Wanted to shoot at an outdoor range, so made the trip on a whim. Indoor shooting just doesn’t feel right. My brother in law and I made the drive one morning to shoot pistols and really enjoyed ourselves. The owner is very helpful. The pistol ranges are nice with covered stations. Before we knew it, we’d spent almost 2 hours there. Want to go back and skeet shoot. Very nice outdoor facility! I’ll be back!

    I want to thank the employees of Windy Hill. I purchased my first hand gun today and what a great experience. The staff was so nice and I felt so welcome. Out on the shooting range I had a blast. To any woman that is in the market for a hand gun I would recommend this place. Keep up the good work and I will be back……Thanks for everything.

    Went for the first visit this weekend. I have limited experience and took by dad who had never been skeet shooting. GREAT PLACE and PEOPLE! Had a great afternoon shooting and meeting new friends. Great skeet range and the trap range was a blast. Everyone made you feel welcome and will definitely be back when I get a chance.

    I have been to Windy Hill Shooting Range 2 times and I have had a ball. The owner is very nice and will help you out if you don’t know what to do.

    Have now visited windy hill several times. The folks there are super friendly and go out of the way to help. TJ helped with sighting my new rifle and threw in a few shooting tips as well. You can’t find this service everywhere, I guess that why I drive 60 miles to get there. Highly recommend.

    I have been Skeet Shooting for many years but have never enjoyed a more friendly atmosphere in my life. Gayle, Linda and their family make you feel right at home. My friends and I look forward to the weekends so we can enjoy a few rounds and maybe even break some targets

    We went to Windy Hill today to buy an over-and-under shotgun. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They spent a lot of time helping us choose the right model/fit. We even got some instruction afterwards on the skeet range located on site. I recommend Windy Hill and they have recently added trap.

    Visited a week ago and 2 more times since, bought 1 gun, ordering another. I will do all of my business from now on with the nicest people I have met in the gun business. They are the only shop to have most everything you need in stock.

    I have been shooting at this facility for about three years now, and I have yet to have even close to a negative experience. The owners are great people to deal with and keep their grounds and ranges in top notch shape. If anyone asks me about a shooting facility I do not hesitate to recommend them, I even carry their business cards with me to pass out to all I can. Keep up the good work and God Bless!

    I’ve been going to Windy Hill for the past 3 or 4 months every Saturday with my brother to target shoot. I can honestly say I have never ran into any nicer people than the owners of this shooting range. I have no problems at all in saying this has to be the best place I’ve ever target shot or shopped. I just wish I had found this ideal place many years ago. I will definitely be going back again and again. Thanks for being there for all the sports shooters out there.

    My first visit was 2 weeks ago. Had 2 problems when I arrived. First, not an extra jacket because it was freezing which the owners solved with a loaner jacket. Next, my light twelve would not eject shells. I was graciously accommodated by the owners. I shot from each station using only the low house because I could only fire one shell at a time. Great place for skeet.

    Well kept skeet area with a sandrock surface. Great place to look down on the shooters from a small building with porch and chairs. Well stocked gun shop also with front porch and rocking chairs. Very user friendly and priced fairly. The owners are just fine folks, friendly and helpful. Sometimes I go there just to observe and talk shooting with the regulars. Owner has plans for trap range in the near future. A must visit for all types of shooters. On a scale of one to ten, a solid eight(will be ten when the new trap area comes on line). By the way, there are occasional cook outs for afternoons of guns and burgers!

    My dad and I went to Windy Hill yesterday. Neither of us had ever shot traps before. The owner was sitting on the front porch and made us feel right at home from the second we got there. He went down to the trap houses and showed us how it all works. He even gave us lots of pointers. Afterwards, we used the pistol and rifle range for an hour or so. It is a really nice place! I like it much better than the indoor pistol range I was a member of earlier. Great place – I am going back with my wife soon!

    Windy Hill is a great place to visit, with its beautiful setting in the hills north of Statesville. It is run by a family, who more than likely will be sitting on the front porch when you get there. For the 50/100 yard range, you use the back porch of the Trading Post. The gun store is well stocked with almost anything you could want. On my first visit, the proprietor made a fresh pot of coffee for us!

    Great Skeet Field. Clear view of the targets. Call the club to confirm the hours and pricing. Club owner and shooters there are very helpful and welcoming! A+ facility with rifle and pistol ranges as well.
