About Davenport Guns and Shooting Club

Davenport Guns & Shooting Club is more than just a retail store – it is the premiere firearms training center in the Quad Cities area. At 46,000 square feet, it is also the largest. All ages are welcome. Parents and guardians are encouraged to bring their children to practice, take one-on-one lessons with our instructors, and attend classes teaching firearms handling and safety. Davenport Guns is truly a valuable community center for Davenport and the surrounding region!

The Storefront

We stress the importance of ensuring each customer is properly educated and satisfied with their gun purchase. We have hundreds of rifles, shotguns, pistols and revolvers of nearly every caliber in stock. Davenport Guns is a “one stop shop” – a customer can buy a gun, carry bag, accessories, cleaning supplies, reloading materials, and even clothing items needed for a full shooting adventure. Our stock includes both new and used inventory. Consignments and trade-ins are also available.

The Range

We have the only indoor shooting range in Davenport, equipped with technology and safety features miles ahead of any competitor in the Quad Cities. Our state-of-the-art ventilation system ensures the air inside the shooting areas remain clean and safe. Climate control systems ensure the environment remains comfortable for visitors year-round. Trained range safety officers and video surveillance keep a watchful eye on all range activity for safety hazards.

Training and Classes

Davenport Guns hosts the most comprehensive firearms training and certification program in the Midwest. Students can earn concealed carry certifications valid in up to 37 states, as well as a number of other shooting and non-shooting classes. All Davenport Guns instructors are nationally certified by the NRA.

The Machine Gun Program

We are the only shooting range within 100 miles to offer full-auto firearms for shooting. We provide a safe, supervised environment like no other! Your adventure starts with a classroom safety briefing with your personal range safety officer and instruction on your firearms operation. Then go to the range for an exhilarating time and unforgettable memories. Choose from vintage Submachine guns like the MP5, UZI, the iconic Thompson Machine gun or modern 9mm AR-15s.

About the owner

As the third generation Westrom in a family line of firearms experts, Jeanelle Westrom learned sight alignment and trigger control before learning how to ride a bike. Working gun shows with her parents, Jeanelle has been involved in the firearms industry one way or another since childhood.

Jeanelle entered competitive shooting, participating in the Bianchi Cup, International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts, International Practical Shooting Confederation, The Precision Pistol Competition. Jeanelle continues to compete in Service Rifle competitions in a variety of locations across the country.
Jeanelle is a certified instructor and has trained both rifle and pistol shooters. In 2014 Jeanelle took over the ArmaLite store at Camp Perry and works with all the military teams along with as many junior teams as possible.

In January 2016, Jeanelle was selected to represent her home state of Iowa as a group of dedicated female shooters to head to DC and talk to our nations legislators. Dubbed the “DC Project”, the first trip was in Feb of 2016, to learn the lay of the land and to let our elected officials see that the face of today’s shooter is changing, and the female market is growing.

Jeanelle also became part of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Range Advisory Committee, whose goal is to bring as many ranges, both indoor and outdoor, up to a national standard that meets both EPA and OSHA requirements, takes care of customers and/or range members, and making the shooting sports available to the public.
