Q: Do I need a membership to shoot there?
A: No. But we do offer memberships for individuals and families. There is a discounted membership fee for active military, law enforcement, EMT and firefighters.
Q: How should I enter the store with my guns?
A: All guns should be securely encased, in either a box, a backpack, a purse, a gun case or something other than in your hands.
Q: How much is a rental gun?
A: Prices vary, considerably because of the cost of ammunition. For one person range fee+ .22 caliber gun rental + ammo + target + eye and ear protection = about thirty dollars. It gets more expensive with larger calibers, such as a 9mm would cost $50.
Q: What if I’ve never shot before, will you show me how to do it?
A: We will show you how to safely handle and operate the gun. We found 90% of clients can take this information and have a successful time on the range. We are always around if you need further assistance. Otherwise, we suggest taking one of our classes where you get more one on one instruction.
Q: What is the minimum age to shoot at the range?
A: It depends on the shooter and the parents. Rarely we get kids as young as 7. But a parent must accompany any one under 10 years old. A parent or guardian may accompany some one under the age of 18.
Q: Can I shoot a machine gun on the range?
A: Yes. As long as the appropriate information from the ATF accompanies the gun. Any issues regarding lack of control are a different matter. If it is observed the shooter cannot stay on target while in full automatic fire, then they will be asked to shoot in semi automatic, only.
Q: Do I need a reservation to shoot? Can I make a reservation?
A: No. We don’t take reservations for any unless it is a group of five or more. Then we suggest you check with us, so there aren’t any other groups scheduled.
Q: Is the range air conditioned?
A: Good question.
Q: Can I draw from a holster
A: Only qualified members of our community are allowed to draw from the holster. Law enforcement may draw from the holster, but on an isolated range booth. This is not an option for our everyday clientele.
Q: Do I have to buy store ammo for my guns?
A: No. You may use your own ammo for your guns, as long as they are not reloads, steel core (armor piercing) or all lead, like a wadcutter.
Q: Can I take pictures?
A: Yes, as long as it doesn’t distract the others and or cause you to violate a range rule.
Q: What do you consider rapid fire?
A: A rate of fire that causes the shooter to fire rounds into anything other than the backstop.
Q: Can my friends come in to watch if they are not shooting?
A: No. To go on the range, a person must pay the range fee.
Q: Are picture targets ok?
A: Yes. No home pictures of ex-husbands, ex-wives, ex-girlfriends, ex-boyfriends. Picture targets are ok if they are actual targets that are pictures.
Q: Is the range wheelchair accessible?
Q: Can we share each others guns?
