Retired Law enforcement and armed security personal are allowed to have a Firearm holstered but will not be able to conduct “firing from the holster, drawing in and out to fire”

Meeting the above prerequisite does not exempt anyone from following all range rules.. i.e. All firearms must be aimed, No firing from hip (weapon retention) minimum distances etc.

If a Range Safety Officer notices any one not following rules you may forfeit the right to draw and fire from a holster at Woodland Park Range.

Children 8 and older can shoot long guns and take rifle or shotgun courses. They must be accompanied by an adult 21 years of age or older.
Children 13 and older are welcome to shoot pistols and take pistol, rife or shotgun courses. They must be accompanied by an adult 21 years of age or older.
Note: We recommend children start with a .22LR firearm, however we have had younger children shoot larger calibers that have demonstrated a higher maturity level and physical capability.

Am I able to take a course if I have a physical limitation or disability?2017-05-19T12:09:46-04:00

Some students will not be able to assume certain shooting positions (such as standing, kneeling or squatting shooting positions) because of physical limitations or disabilities. The presence of a physical limitation or disability does not by itself affect a student’s eligibility to attend the course or receive a certificate of completion. Most exercises may be adapted to work within each student’s range of motion/function. Regardless of the disability, all students must demonstrate the necessary knowledge, skills, attitude and understanding of the laws of the State pertaining to firearms use to receive a certificate of completion. Also, safety will not be compromised in any modified technique. It is important to notify the Instructor, prior to enrolling in a course, if you have any concerns which may need to be addressed. This may include (but is not limited to) sore or bad knees, ankles, wrists, elbows, hips, artificial joints, deformities, or anything which may hinder or alter your abilities to perform certain shooting tasks or safety demonstrations. This course is offered to persons in accordance and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, but due to the nature of the overall safety of all surrounding students and instructors, as well as the general public, and compliance of the courses, each case will be evaluated on an individual basis.

What kind of participation is involved in a typical shooting course?2014-01-26T17:31:31-05:00

Students must demonstrate safe gun handling skills with training pistols, prior to participating in live-fire exercises.

Can pregnant women or nursing mothers attend a course?2018-11-01T10:18:35-04:00

If anyone is pregnant or nursing an infant, they can not enter the firing range due to the loud sounds and lead particulates.

Can I bring my own firearm to the course?2020-02-17T14:47:19-05:00

Yes. All students are encouraged to bring their own firearms to the course as well as factory ammo to shoot during the live fire portion. Be sure to transport your firearm in accordance to NJ State law. For a full set of NJ Transportation Laws click here. Email or call with any questions.

How do I enroll in a course?2014-01-26T17:29:51-05:00

What is the minimum age requirement?2017-07-16T17:17:52-04:00

For the First Step and Basic Pistol/Shotgun/Rifle courses, there is no minimum age requirement, provided that the student is mature and responsible, has the required positive attitude when handling firearms, and is able to follow along with the lessons and course materials. The student must successfully demonstrate the knowledge which they have gained with safe gun handling skills, before moving on to the next stages of lessons. For courses which do not contain “live-fire” shooting exercises, there is no minimum age requirement. CCW courses require that the applicant be 21 years of age.
