1. All shooters and their guests must check in at the Range Office PRIOR TO USING THE RANGE. Before departing, all shooters and their guests must also check out there.
At this point all shooters must view the safety video, complete and signed waiver on file prior to entering the range.
2. Firearms and ammunition are subject to inspection by any Range Officer, at any time. Shooters and guests must promptly obey all Range Officer commands!
3. Firearms shall be unloaded and either holstered or cased, as you enter or depart the range area!
4. Unless you are inside of a building or vehicle eye and ear protection must be worn by everyone on the entire range facility, at any time during which firearms are being discharged. If you do not have any you may purchase or rent them at the range office. Dress Code: NO flip-flops, sandals or open footwear of any kind. NO tank-tops, low-cut tops, or bare mid-riff tops. Due to the brass expelled from the chambers and they are hot.
5. Rifle and pistol shooters may only use targets approved by the Range Officer. We reserve the right to prohibit targets that we deem unsafe. Additionally, only paper targets may be used. No fruits, vegetables, plastic or any other type of targets may be used.
6. No dogs are allowed on any part of the range premises. If you bring a service animal bring proper documentation for that service animal, this is a live firing range and you will be held responsible for that animal, NO PETS!!! DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN THE VEHICLES EITHER!!
7. All guns are always loaded! Treat them that way!
8. Never let your muzzle cover anything you’re not willing to destroy!
9. Keep your finger off the trigger ‘til your sights are on the target!
10. Always be sure of your target! And what is beyond the target
11. If a range officer has to speak to you, give you any guidance, or correct you for any violation of range rules, he or she will more than likely be doing so in a very loud voice. This is because both the range officer and the shooter are wearing hearing protection (which is mandatory). If this offends you, you may ask to go to the range building to discuss whatever you are doing wrong.
12. If you do not follow range procedures and/or commit an unsafe act, at the range officer’s discretion, you may be asked/ordered to leave for a period of time at the range officer’s discretion (1 day, 30 days, 1 year, or permanent expulsion), depending upon the severity of the violation and your attitude.
13. Any steel targets must be placed at a distance of 15 yards or greater.
THE FOLLOWING ARE PROHIBITED:
1. Fully automatic fire is PROHIBITED on the range! Controlled, semi-automatic rapid fire is permitted (note the emphasis on controlled) with all bullets staying on your respective target. Spraying the berm with semi-auto rapid fire WILL NOT BE PERMITTED, and violations will result in expulsion from the range!
2. Tracer, armor piercing, white phosphorus, incendiary, or any other excessively destructive ammunition or targets are PROHIBITED on the range!
3. Persons drinking or under the influence of alcohol or drugs will NOT be permitted on the range facility! You will be asked to leave the range facility.
4. Smoking is ALLOWED ONLY in the DESIGNATED SMOKING AREA. DO NOT SMOKE ON THE FIRING LINE!!!
5. Littering is not only PROHIBITED; but is a violation of state law. No food is allowed on the fire line.
6. Shooters and guests who deliberately damage or destroy range property are liable for the cost of repair or replacement of damaged or destroyed property.
7. Shooters must stay in your lane of fire! Shooting while moving in any direction is PROHIBITED during range time. Moving while shooting is done under supervision of an instructor.
8. The use of any handgun chambered for a cartridge larger/more powerful than .45 Colt and .44 Magnum is PROHIBITED anywhere on the pistol range, due to the excessive muzzle blast and effect on adjacent shooters! We have the rifle side where the muzzle blast will not effect other shooters.
9. This is a family owned/operated range please do not use profanity or vulgar gestures.
WHEN THE RANGE IS “HOT”, PATRONS MAY ONLY:
1. Keep your finger off of the trigger, outside of the trigger guard, until ready to fire, after the range has been declared “hot.”
2. FIREARMS SHALL NOT BE HANDLED WHILE ANYONE IS DOWN RANGE! This includes while setting up or packing up your gear!
3. On the pistol range, all shooters must shoot from the same firing line, no matter which side of the range they are on, left or right of the centerline.
4. The “active firing line” is a term meaning the line that is being used/shot from at that time. There can be only one active firing line at a time and at least one foot must be touching the extreme forward edge of that line. That firing line will be behind the benches.
5. The only time that you may handle a loaded firearm is when you are on the active firing line. You may carry your firearm to and from your vehicle but it must be unloaded and shown clear. Make sure that you understand this rule! Your firearm should be in a holster or case when being carried across the parking lot.
6. The only direction that any firearm may be pointed at any time, is down range (toward the target berm)! You may not walk around with a handgun dangling from your hand or pointed toward the sky or any direction other than toward the berm, at any time!
WHEN THE RANGE IS “COLD”, PATRONS SHALL:
1. Shooters may collect their own brass, but may not collect someone else’s brass – especially while the other person is shooting! No shooter may collect brass forward of an active firing line, for obvious safety reasons. To collect their own brass, forward of the active firing line, shooters must wait until there is a halt in firing and the range is safe/cold.
2. Firearms must be handled in a safe manner at all times. ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED DOWN RANGE!
3. When the range is cleared for shooters to go down range, all firearms must either be holstered or “unloaded and grounded.” (“Grounded” means placed on the ground or table.) If grounded, pistols must have their magazines removed and actions open/slides locked back. Revolvers must have their cylinders swung open. In either case, WHENEVER ANYONE IS DOWN RANGE, NO ONE CAN TOUCH A FIREARM, FOR ANY REASON!
WHEN “CEASE FIRE” IS CALLED, PATRONS SHALL:
1. The command “CEASE FIRE” will be observed IMMEDIATELY, no matter who says it! Anyone may call a cease fire. All shooters shall IMMEDIATELY holster (or clear and ground) their firearm and step back from the firing line, in order to make it safe! (Ground means put your firearm on the ground or table.)
2. Use caution, if your firearm fails to fire, when the trigger is pulled. On rare occasions, a cartridge or shotgun shell may not fire. If this occurs, keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction for one minute, then carefully open the action. A mechanical failure or broken part in the firearm may suddenly release the hammer or firing pin, causing the cartridge to fire.
3. All pistol shooters are encouraged to have and use a strong-side belt holster that orients the firearm in a muzzle down position. No cross draw holsters, shoulder holsters, or “small of the back” holsters are allowed. If you do not have a holster, then you may use a pistol rug, pistol case, or something similar, and place your firearm on the ground or table immediately in front of you, but it must be pointing down range, at all times! You may NOT place your firearm beside you or behind you – ONLY IN FRONT OF YOU, AND POINTING DOWN RANGE, TOWARD THE BERM!
4. If any firearm malfunctions and the shooter needs/desires assistance from range personnel, they shall place the firearm on the ground or table directly in front of them, pointing down range, then go to the range office and request assistance from range personnel or raise their hand for the Range Safety Officer can help.
5. Shooters observing any violation(s) of range rules are required to IMMEDIATELY make on the-spot safety corrections or report the safety violation(s) to the Range Office or a Range Officer!
1. All shooters 18 years of age and older are required to pay your membership either individual or family. Or the non member daily fee of $10.00 to use the facility.
2. Shooters are responsible for the conduct of non-shooting guest(s). This is not a playground. For obvious safety reasons, parents or guardians (18 years or older) must ensure that their children are close beside them at all times (no more than 10 feet away). No children are allowed on the firing line or on the range without the parent or guardian in arms reach.
3. Shooters under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult (meaning someone 18 years of age or older). This means when on the firing line that shooter has the adult on the same lane.
