How much does it cost to rent a gun?

I have the day off and I wanted to go rent handguns. I want to see which one I like, and buy one. I am in the market for a compact of sub compact pistol.

Depends on where you go. At Bullet Trap in Plano, you pay $18.99 range fee, $10 rental fee (usually per gun, unless you get one of the nicer guys that will let you switch it out a couple of times), and the cost of ammo (normally have to use their ammo).

The last time I rented one from Bullet Trap, I think I paid about $45-50 after it was all said and done.

I live in Arlington, but I will probably be in the HEB area.

The last time I rented a gun, it was at the range next to the Winchester Gallery off of 820 in Fort Worth. I think by the time it was all said and done I paid $45.

i have been to the winchester range also and the rental depends on the guns, i rented a xd9mm and a box of ammo and it was like 25 bucks i think. I know the alpine range also rents guns, but not sure on their price.

DFW Gun range off harry Hines @ mockingbird has a good selection and a decent range.

•Handgun Rental: $7.99
•Additional Guns: $5 each

www.dfwgun.com

When you get bored of the handguns, rent the full auto MP5 for $30 and go to town.

Well it cost me $83 to rent two guns and buy 100 rounds of ammo. I tried a glock 22 and a little bigger XD. Winchester didnt have a XD compact, just a subcompact and a 4.5" barrell (no 4"). The glock was a 9mm and the XD was a .45 acp. The XD was a lot better to shoot even though it was a bigger round. Both of the guns werent sited for shit, but over all I am glad I didnt go out and buy a Glock.

Pssh! Go to Elk Castle on the west side of Fort Worth, I-30 exit Cherry Lane. They charge you one time to rent guns no matter how many you touch. As long as you shoot their ammo.

A gun is only as accurate as the person pulling the trigger. I bet they were "sighted in" just fine.

I'm confused, you said you tried a Glock 22, but later said the Glock was a 9mm. The Glock 22 is the 4.5" barrel full sized .40. So, are you sure that Glock was a model 22? The full sized Glock in 9mm is the model 17.

Also, you really can't compare different guns if you are not shooting the same caliber. Go somewhere else and rent again, but stay with the same caliber round this time.
