Personal Firearm Rules

Everyone must always follow the Four Basic Rules of Firearm Safety:

    • Treat ALL GUNS as if they ARE LOADED.
    • Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to shoot or destroy.
    • Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until your sights are on the target and you are ready to shoot.
    • Be sure of your target, what is in line with it, and what is beyond it.

  • Range Staff have the right to inspect all firearms, ammunition, and equipment.
  • No one will be permitted on the range if they are under the influence, or suspected of being under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any other intoxicating substances.
  • Shooters under the age of 18 must be always accompanied and supervised by a parent or legal guardian. No one under the age of 12 is permitted on the range. Minors are NOT permitted to have their own lane. Parent or Guardian MUST always stay within arms-length of a minor while on the range.
  • Immediately notify the Range Safety Officer of any unsafe practices on the range. Report any injuries no matter how small to the Range Safety Officer.
  • All handling, including the casing and uncasing of firearms is limited to your assigned lane and bench only. Firearms must remain in the booth in which they start. Do not pass any firearms between lanes under any circumstances unless the firearm is in a case.
  • All firearms must be pointed downrange at all times. Downrange is defined as the area within the backstop, including when the firearm is being cased or uncased.
  • All firearms must be cleared, breech open, and securely encased before removing them from the firing line.
  • If any problem should occur with your firearm while on the firing line, leave the jammed or malfunctioning firearm pointed down range on the bench in the firing station, and immediately contact the Range Safety Officer. If there is no RSO in the range, utilize the doorbell to alert the staff.
  • Always check with the Range Safety Officer if you are unsure if your firearm or ammunition is permitted. The RSO reserves the exclusive right to prohibit any incomplete firearms (rifles and handguns without complete sights, firearms with missing or broken parts, etc.) that are deemed unsafe. Ammunition that is deemed improper for range use will be held at the experience counter and returned when guests leave the facility.
  • Shooters using the range may draw a firearm from the holster ONLY under the supervision of a CERTIFIED RANGE OFFICER or INSTRUCTOR.
  • Never pass a loaded firearm to another person. Place the unloaded firearm on the bench in your firing station and allow the next person to pick it up and load it.
  • All shooting should be in a safe and controlled manner. Machine Gun America does not permit “dual wielding” or “two-gun shooting” at any time. No uncontrolled, rapid-fire is permitted. Damage to the facility will result in a fee and discharge from the range. Damage to the ceiling, lights, benches, dividers etc. will result in a $300 fee and potential discharge from the range. If you are unsure of your abilities, brief instruction can be provided for $25, that will cover everything you need to safely and proficiently discharge your firearm.
  • Targets must be appropriately sized and placed to ensure that shots do not strike the floor, ceiling, or walls. Firing a shot that results in a bullet striking anything other than the target or backstop may result in a $300 fee and potential discharge from the range.
  • The Range Master reserves the right to prohibit any target that is deemed offensive, inappropriate, or unsafe in their sole opinion.
  • Tracers, explosive or armor-piercing ammunition are strictly prohibited. Shotguns are allowed with slugs or buckshot only. No birdshot, Dragons Breath, Bolo Rounds, etc.
