How Does the Range Work?
First and foremost, our shooting range is set up to follow safety protocols to protect you and every client on the range. We want you to be able to enjoy your experience without feeling unsafe.
When you arrive, you will check in with the Pro Shop. There, our staff will ask you to fill out the Range Safety Rules and the Liability Waiver. You may download them here or on the Forms Page to make your check-in proceed more smoothly. At check-in, Staff will ask for a photo ID and retain same until you have finshed shooting. Staff will provide you with eye protection, ear protection and chamber flags at no cost. All are required to shoot on the range.
Our range works in two stages: the “hot” and “cold” designation. Cold means there is NO active fire permitted, and you must leave your firearms in the Pro Shop or on the table with your action open and empty. At this time, you choose your lane, place your targets and wait until everyone is behind the firing line. There is NO handling of any weapons at this time. Hot means active firing has begun, and eye and ear protection must to be worn. You may retrieve your weapons from the Pro Shop or remove the chamber flags and begin using your weapons. No one is allowed to place targets during this time.
The line cycles from “HOT” to “COLD” approximately every twenty (20) minutes. You can expect approximately 2 “Hot” periods per hour. The cycle may vary depending upon weather and number of shooters. The Range Master works hard to accommodate the needs of the shooters, clear the firing line in an efficient manner and meet all requests while maintaining the safety and integrity of the range. Expect weekends to be busy, with many shooters and individuals who are trying to familiarize themselves with the set-up process. Weekdays are lighter and it takes less time to clear the line and post targets.
