Range Rules

  • SAFETY FIRST! Every shooter has the responsibility to make sure that each bullet fired impacts safely in the bullet trap. Every shooter has a duty to report rule violations and unsafe acts.
  • Only handle your loaded firearm on the firing line. When arriving at the range, all guns must be stored in a case or range bag and must be unloaded. The exception to this rule is your concealed carry piece, which may be loaded. It may only be unholstered for use while you are within your shooting station and reholstered when you have completed your session.
  • When loading or unloading your firearm, keep your muzzle pointed downrange (toward the target area). The muzzle should never sweep stations to your right or left, or any part of your body.
  • Do not dangle your pistol at your side. The firearm should be at the ready, on target, or grounded on your shooting station.
  • Do not turn around with a firearm in your hand. If needed, turn your head to speak to a range safety officer, instructor, etc. Keep your firearm pointed downrange and finger off the trigger.
  • Shoot only at authorized targets in authorized frames and carriers within your shooting station.
  • Immediately obey all commands of the designated range safety officer. The range safety officer has complete authority over all shooters in the live fire area. Failure to obey a range safety officer is grounds for immediate removal without refund and/or revocation of membership.
  • During a cease fire all shooters must step back from the firing line. Handling firearms during a cease fire is absolutely forbidden.
  • Proper safety equipment for eyes and ears is required at all times for shooters in live-fire area. Hearing protection devices may be either the passive or electronic type. Safety glasses or corrective lens are both acceptable.
  • Closed toed shoes are required and no low cut tops.
  • No drawing from the holster. Exceptions to this rule will apply during special events and formal training sessions.
  • Rapid fire is allowed in a controlled and safe manner. It will be the discretion of the range safety officer to restrict rapid fire to 1 round per second if the shooter cannot control the firearm safely.
  • There shall be no use of intoxicants of any kind on the range. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone suspected of being under the influence of intoxicants.
  • Minors: Individuals 17 years and younger may fire on the range only when under the direct supervision of their guardian. Individuals 17 years and younger are not allowed on the range premises unless they are under the direct supervision of an adult, who shall be responsible for them and keep them behind the firing line and out of danger zones.
  • Anyone causing damage to range equipment or facilities shall be personally and monetarily liable for such damage.
  • The range shall not be responsible for personal property or equipment left on the premises.
  • Permitted Calibers: Only those firearms for which the range has been designed will be allowed:
    a) Pistol: Max pistol .50 caliber on the 25-yard pistol range
    b) Rifle: Max Rifle Caliber is .338 Lapua on the 50-yard rifle range
    c) Shotgun: Slugs only (on the rifle range)
    d) Class III: Silencers and suppressors allowed on rifle and pistol ranges.
  • Prohibited Firearms: Muzzle loaders and black powder.
  • The use of incendiary devices, armor piercing, green tip, and/or tracer ammunition is strictly prohibited.  Lasers are prohibited on the rifle range.
  • Each shooter is required to clean up the area after completing their range session. You may collect your own brass, if accessible, within reach of your immediate station.
  • Pregnant women are not permitted in the live fire area.  (An excellent & informative article about shooting while pregnant can be found on the A Girl & A Gun’s website.)
  • No smoking, eating, or drinking permitted in the ready room or live-fire area.
  • Maximum capacity in live-fire area is 20 shooters on the pistol range, and 12 shooters on the rifle range, up to two people per station.
  • Be polite and have fun!
