Who is able to participate?

– Each group MUST consist of at least two people.
– Individual shooters are not permitted
I have never used a firearm before, will you teach me?
– Yes, we will make sure that you are very comfortable using the firearm and spend at least 15 minutes training you.
What do I need to do when I get there?
1- Once you have arrived all you need to do is come to the Reception Desk.
2- Reception staff will give you paperwork to sign. Every new person to the Range must fill out paperwork before being permitted to use the shooting range.
3- Reception will then take your photo and confirm your valid State or Territory issued ID. Each person must present valid identification.
4- Once signed-in at Reception, please make your way to the Retail area. The Retail area has two queues: A Members Only queue as well as a Non-Members queue which is located on the right side of the Retail area.
5- Our staff member will help choose the best firearm! We will hold onto your ID while our rental guns are in use. Your identification will be given back to you once the rental equipment has been returned.
What should I wear? What should I bring?
– Shooters must wear footwear that covers the toes and shirts that cover the midriff. This will rule out the possibility for hot shell casings brushing your skin.
– We have all of the equipment you need to start shooting, including: firearms, ammunition, targets, ear and eye protection and more!
How many people are allowed in a Firing Lane?
– The maximum number is 3 people in a lane at any one time. Any more than 3 people will require an additional lane
Can I choose more than one gun?
If you purchased a special L&L package you are limited to the guns provided in the package. After you finish shooting you can also try other guns and ammunition at an additional cost.
Can I take Pictures/Video?
Yes, you can. We ask that you keep your photos to within your lane. Please try not to picture other shooters in your photos/videos. Most importantly, if posing with any firearm, keep the barrel pointed DOWN range and your finger OFF the trigger.
I would like to come with a large group! Do I need to phone in advance?
If you are coming to the Range with 2-8 people there is no need to call.
If you are coming to the Range with 9 or more people please call ahead so we can better accommodate your needs.
Are there any age limits?
Children below the age of 8 years may come into the building and watch, but they are not permitted to enter the shooting Range.
8 years of age and older may shoot at the Range.
Children aged 13 may shoot a rented handgun provided they are accompanied by an adult aged 21 years or over.
