Range Rules

Age Requirements
  1. Children must be at least 12 years old to enter the range and shoot, accompanied with parent or legal guardian.
  2. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who will sign a waiver and stay with them at all times.  Minimum age requirement to shoot handguns, “other firearms”, and NFA items without the necessity of parental/guardian accompaniment at our shooting ranges is 21.  This applies to on-premises operations only.  Any off-site renting of firearms, should they occur, must adhere to all federal regulations (including federal age restrictions) and be conducted as 4473 transfers.
Preliminary Considerations
  1. All firearms that are not holstered should be cased in an unloaded position while going to or from the range.
  2. Display your unloaded and cleared firearm to the Range Safety Officer at the counter, as well as the ammunition you intend to use on the range.
  3. Only authorized firearms and ammunition may be used. Steel core, tracer, and incendiary rounds are strictly prohibited.
  4. Please advise the Range Safety Officer if you’ve never fired a gun before. We appreciate you and want to ensure your safety and that you are comfortable on our range.
  5. Eye and ear protection is mandatory on the range. If you don’t have your own, both are available at the range desk to use free of charge.
Range Safety Rules
  1. Shooters are to obey the instructions of the Range Safety Officer at all times.
  2. Eye and ear protection is MANDATORY at all times.
  3. Open toe shoes and low cut tops are not allowed on the range.
  4. Advise range personnel of any medical condition which could create a safety issue for you or others.
  5. Be certain that your ammunition is correct for the firearm you will be shooting.
  6. Know and understand how your firearm works and understand operation of all safety features.
  7. No firearm handling will be allowed outside the shooting booth.
  8. Only one shooter in the shooter’s “box” in a lane at a time, all other participants must be behind the safety line.
  9. Keep any firearm pointed downrange at ALL times, perpendicular to the target line, whether loaded, unloaded, or malfunctioning. Be sure of the target and what is behind the target.
  10. All guns that are “benched” should be unloaded, action open, and magazine removed.
  11. Do not load the firearm until ready to fire.
  12. Keep your finger off the trigger and on a fixed point on the side of the frame until you are on target and ready to fire.
  13. Shooters are to fire only one firearm at a time. When finished, unload and case the firearm before uncasing the next firearm.
  14. Under no circumstances may a loaded firearm be passed to another person. A firearm will be considered loaded if a magazine is inserted and/or firearm is in a closed, locked condition.
  15. Shooters should fire at their target only as rapidly as their ability permits. Uncontrolled shooting resulting in damage to equipment is strictly prohibited. Violators will have range privileges revoked and will be held liable for damages.
  16. Cross lane shooting is not permitted.
  17. No drawing from holsters under any circumstances.
  18. Collection of your brass that falls on shooter’s side of the firing line is permitted when your session is over. Under no circumstances may any implement or appendage cross forward of the red firing line.
  19. No food, drink, gum, or tobacco is permitted inside the range. Cell phone usage, including texting, is strictly prohibited on the range.
  20. Range Officer decisions or determinations are final. Any misuse of facility or disregard of rules will result in expulsion from the range.

Rifle and shotgun are now permitted on the range at any time during normal operating hours.

We allow all handgun calibers to be fired on the range and rifles chambered up to 300 win mag. (Due to decibel level limits, firearms chambered larger than 300 win mag are not allowed). If you bring or rent a shotgun only buckshot and slugs are allowed on the range (No birdshot, game loads, target loads).

    In my opinion, online purchases should be efficient and problem free. The web page should be easy and intuitively logical to navigate. The purchase process should be organized in an easy step by step procedure. Bud's has made it easy … More to separate me from my money, heh! That is a five star performance!
