Shooting Range Rules
Who can use the Range?
Only members in good standing are allowed in the Shooting Range. A member with a valid FOID card or Out of State ID is required for each lane. Maximum of 2 Shooters are allowed per lane. No spectators in the Shooting Range.
Minors under the age of 18 must be under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian. Minors under the age of 14 must satisfactorily complete a Guns-N-Such Youth Handgun Course to use the range.
Never use Drugs or Alcohol before or during shooting activities.
Lead Exposure and Concussive force may have particularly harmful effects on pregnant women and babies. Please consult your medical professional for guidelines.
Anyone displaying unsafe actions or attitude may be warned, asked to leave, or have their membership revoked.
Always Keep ALL Firearms Pointed in a Safe direction.
The only safe direction is downrange at the bullet trap. Not at the dividers, Not at the ceiling, Not at the floor, Not at the walls.
Always Keep Your Finger Off of The Trigger, Until Your Sights Are On Target And You Are Ready To Shoot.
Always Be Sure Of Your Target And What Is Beyond It.
Do not shoot at anything besides your approved target. Only regulation paper targets may be brought in. Non-Paper targets must be supplied by Guns-N-Such. Range Staff has the right to prohibit any targets deemed to be offensive. Targets representing particular people are not allowed. You may only shoot at the target for your lane. You are responsible for hanging your target at the appropriate height for the size of target and for your height, so that the bullet will go into the bullet trap and not the floor or ceiling. Do not shoot the target carrier, or other range equipment.
Always Treat All Guns as if They are Loaded.
Whenever you handle a firearm, always open the action immediately, and visually check the chamber, receiver and magazine to be certain they do not contain any ammunition. Always keep firearms unloaded and actions open when not in use. Never assume a gun is unloaded — check for yourself! Guns should only be loaded at the firing line. Only 1 gun should be loaded per lane at a time.

Unload the firearm and place it on the bench with the action open.
If a jam or other malfunction occurs and you cannot clear the problem, safely place the firearm on the shooting bench and ask range staff for assistance. Do not leave the firing line with a loaded or jammed firearm!
