Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know before you come out to shoot with us here at Michigan Shooting Centers. Browse the topics below to find what you are looking for.

How should I bring my firearm to the range?2020-06-27T14:00:20-04:00

All firearms which you wish to use at the rifle and/or pistol range must be brought to the range unloaded and cased. We do not allow drawing from a holster, so if you have a concealed pistol license and wish to use your concealed firearm, you must un-holster it at your vehicle, unload it, and put it in a case. You are more than welcome to carry your firearm concealed on the range if you have a CPL, however, you will not be able to shoot it at the range.

Shotguns for clay target shooting may be uncased at your vehicle and brought onto the course so long as it is unloaded and the action is open. You are also more than welcome to keep your unloaded gun in a gun slip or case while on the course.
