If you act in an unsafe manner or fail to adhere to these simple rules we will ask you to leave the premises immediately, without refund.

BASIC FIREARM SAFETY RULES
YOU WILL BE WARNED ONLY ONCE FOR A SAFETY VIOLATION BEFORE YOU ARE TOLD TO LEAVE
Know the condition of your firearms at all times, loaded or unloaded.
Never point the muzzle of your firearms at anything you are not willing to destroy.
Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to engage your target, keep it along side the frame or trigger guard.
Know what is in front and behind your target, and fire accordingly.
DO NOT ENTER THE PROSHOP WITH A LOADED FIREARM!!!!!!!
- Eye and ear protection are required while on the range.
- Muzzle awareness is key. Always keep your muzzle pointed down range when on the firing line. Always transport firearms with the muzzle up or muzzle down.
- Pistols must be holstered
- No one goes down range until firing line is cleared and all shooters are clear/cold and chamber flags are visible.
- No firearms are to be handled when firing range is cold and someone is down range.
- No magazines in rifles while chamber flags are inserted and do not load magazines into rifles until you’re ready to fire and on firing line.
- You must control round impact, if rounds do not land in impact area (berms) you will be asked to cease fire.
- If you have a malfunction or a problem on the firing line, engage the firearm’s safety, keep it pointed downrange or at the ground and ask for assistance.
- No rapid fire from the rifle static range unless cleared by the range master on site: maximum 1 round every 1 seconds. (Rapid fire engagements are permitted in the steel bays. See Range 37 staff for more information on our steel bays.)
- No high power firearms are to be fired at metal targets unless they are designated as such by the range master. Ask before you fire at metal targets.
- Shoot only directly forward in your lane, do not shoot across lanes.
- Absolutely no foreign objects on the range. No targets on the ground or shooting at the ground.
- We welcome children and families, but all minors must stay with an adult and no playing or running around.
- You must clean up your area when you finish. Pick up trash and return stands to the range shack.
- Common sense is everyone’s best friend.
IF YOU WITNESS ANY UNSAFE ACTIVITY PLEASE NOTIFY THE
RANGE MASTER OR STAFF AT THE RANGE SHACK IMMEDIATELY
