Safety is our #1 Priority

Please read all range rules prior to visiting one of our facilities. Range staff has the authority to dismiss a shooter from the range without a refund if they fail to abide by range rules and/or compromise the safety of others.

Safety

ALWAYS TREAT EVERY FIREARM AS IF IT IS LOADED

Never point your gun at anything you do not intend to destroy. In the event of an accidental discharge, no injury can occur if the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction. A safe direction means a direction in which a bullet could not possibly strike anyone or anything you do not wish to destroy.

The safe direction while on the range – whether you are shooting, unloading or reloading your firearm – is always down range. When carrying your unloaded firearm, the safe direction is either up into the sky or down at the ground. Never point the muzzle at anyone or anything not intended as a target.

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL READY TO SHOOT

Keep your fingers away from the trigger until it is your turn to shoot. Never handle a gun carelessly and assume that the gun won’t fire just because the “safety is on.”

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR FIREARM UNLOADED UNTIL READY TO SHOOT

Firearms should be loaded only when you are ready to shoot. Unload your gun immediately when you have finished shooting and well before you leave your shooting bench or station.

ALWAYS WEAR EYE AND EAR PROTECTION WHILE AT THE RANGE

All shooters and spectators must wear protective shooting glasses and some form of hearing protectors while shooting. Exposure to shooting noise can damage hearing, and adequate vision protection is essential.
