Frequently asked questions
Q: What if I have never shot before?

Q: I’m a first-time visitor. What is required, and what can I expect?
A: You will be required to fill out our waiver and take a safety quiz and then be given our hourly membership, no fee required. You’ll be given an hourly membership paper card that you will bring in next time you come to the range so you don’t have to fill in paperwork again. You will then sign in, pay range fees and may then make ammo, firearm rental, or target purchases too if needed. And then be shown back to the range. If you have any questions, our friendly and knowledgeable staff are available to answer you.
