Range Rules

Range Rules
The Club is concerned solely for member safety. Most members demonstrate firearm safety; however there are some with so little experience (mostly new members), they do not belong on the range. The Club is concerned solely for member safety. We now require all new members to attend an orientation and basic safety classes prior to issuing a club membership. This orientation is common in many clubs and is necessary to ensure the safety of our members.

Guest passes are required for non-member use of the Rifle and Pistol range.  Guest Passes may be purchased online by the Club Member accompanying the Guest.

Failure to comply with range rules or demonstrating unsafe or uncontrolled behavior will result in revocation of your membership.
