Indoor Range Rules

1. All firearms must be holstered or cased while going to or from the range. NEVER handle un-cased or un-holstered firearms unless you are standing on the green paint in your designated shooting stall.
2. Always keep firearms pointed down range towards the bullet trap. NEVER turn around in the shooting stall while holding a firearm. Never point the firearm toward yourself, another person, the ceiling, range or shooting stall walls. Never for any reason leave your shooting stall with an un-cased or un-holstered firearm.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger and outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot.
4. Be sure of your target. Do not shoot at targets out of your designated shooting lane.
5. Never cross the RED firing line for any reason. Do not attempt to retrieve anything that falls in front of the firing line. If you lose a piece of equipment, ask the Range Safety Officer (RSO) for assistance.
6. If you observe any unsafe behavior or condition by anyone, report it to the RSO immediately.
7. Always keep the action open and firearm unloaded until ready to fire. Consider every firearm as “loaded” and treat it as such.
8. Eye and ear protection must be put on before entering the range and worn at all times while inside the range.
9. Upon the command “CEASE FIRE”, stop all shooting immediately, put down your firearm and back away from the shooting stall until you are standing behind the yellow line. Do NOT re-approach the firing line or pick up your firearm until the “all clear” signal is given.
10. If you experience a firearm or ammunition problem, keep the gun pointed down range, do not set the gun down, remain in your shooting stall and signal a RSO for assistance by raising your non-shooting hand.
11. Use only the correct ammunition for your firearm. All ammunition must be new or factory re-manufactured and in its original packaging. Defender Outdoors DOES NOT permit steel core, steel or aluminum case, steel shot, tracer or armor piercing ammunition. Defender Outdoors does not permit muzzle-loaders or black powder.
12. If you bring more than one firearm, we recommend that you un-case only one at a time. This will reduce the chance of loading the wrong ammunition and keep the bench clear of obstruction.
13. Know and understand the operating mechanism and safety features of your firearm. If you do not, please ask for additional assistance when you check in to the range.
14. Never use alcohol or drugs before or while shooting.
15. No food, drink, gum or tobacco is permitted inside the range. Wash your hands each time you leave the range and before smoking, eating or drinking.
16. Shooters who desire to draw and shoot from the holster must be approved to do so by a member of Defender Outdoors’ staff. Such activities will only be permitted at certain times and on designated lanes. Please ask for details.
17. Please notify the RSO if you would like to shoot your carry firearm on the range before you un-holster and the RSO will provide additional instruction. Do not draw and shoot from the holster unless approved to do so.
18. Rapid fire in bursts (2 or 3 rounds) is permitted on the pistol/carbine lanes if muzzle discipline is maintained and all shots are on target. Rapid fire is not permitted on the rifle lanes.
19. Shooters may collect their brass behind the firing line once they have unloaded and cased their firearm and are ready to leave the range. Inform the RSO at the beginning of your session that you would like to keep your brass.
Please act responsibly at all times. Foul language, horseplay, or any other unsafe activity will not be tolerated. If we observe an unsafe act we will help you understand what you did and work with you to learn the correct safety procedures. If you repeat or commit another unsafe act, you will be asked to leave the range. If you appear to be impaired (such as under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription medication), a manager will be contacted and you will be asked to leave the range. The safety of our members and guests is our first priority. Please respect your fellow shooters, our staff and the facility so that we can continue to provide you with the best shooting experience possible.
