Range Safety Rules and Regulations

 

Safety comes from knowledge, which can only be learned through education and training.

 

We apologize for having so many rules. Like you, we don't really care for rules. But your health and safety are our foremost concerns. It is our goal that you enjoy your time with us. Many shooters will be inexperienced. Many will have unsafe habits, or wish to act in ways that adversely affect others or the safe operation of the range. We need to operate the range so that it is safe, healthy, efficient, effective, and pleasant for our guests. To assure these goals are met, we reluctantly present the following rules, and ask that you familiarize yourself with them and follow them when you visit. We believe you will find them reasonable, and less restrictive than most ranges. If there is any doubt or question as to what a rule refers to, or the rationale behind it, please feel free to contact us for more information.

As we are involved in the carrying and firing of firearms, it is critical to behave in a totally civil manner. There is to be no arguing, shouting, threatening, intimidation, pushing, or fighting tolerated. Such behavior may result in expulsion from the range, including permanently, totally at the discretion of the management.

 

RULES ARE IN ENGLISH AND MUST BE UNDERSTOOD.

 

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY SAFETY RULES MAY RESULT IN IMMEDIATE EXPULSION FROM THE PREMISES.

 

SAFETY RULES

  • All firearms must be holstered or cased when not on the range. No long arms to be loaded. Only those legally entitled to carry may carry loaded holstered hand guns.

  • All firearms are subject to inspection by range personnel.

  • Range officers will caution or expel anyone displaying unsafe handling of a firearm, depending on number and type of behavior. Range personnel may deny access to anyone apparently under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

  • Age: Handgun shooters must be a minimum of 18 years of age, or accompanied by a parent/guardian. Shooters under 21 may rent or purchase long guns and buy ammunition for long guns on their own. They may not buy or rent handguns, or buy handgun ammunition on their own, due to federal law, but they may bring their own handguns and ammunition to shoot as that is approved by South Carolina law.

  • If the parent/legal guardian so wishes, they can print and complete the  Parental Authorization for Third Party Supervision Form as well as the  Waiver of Liability and Hold Harmless Agreement. With both of these signed and completed documents, minor children may shoot in the range with a responisible adult other than parent/legal guardian.

  • Anyone entering the range must wear eye and ear protection.

  • No more than 1 shooter on a lane without prior approval. If management permits 2 shooters to share a point, only 1 shooter is allowed within the shooting position at a time, all other shooters must stand behind the firing line away from the shooter. The only exception is an instructor (parent/guardian/spouse) actively involved in a lesson.

  • All bays limited to firearms, pistol or rifles of up to 3200 fps. More powerful rounds must be fired under special supervision.

  • No .50 BMG. No full auto fire or the use of any product that mimics full auto fire.

  • All firearms are subject to approval. It is the responsibility of all members to get caliber approval from the range safety officer before shooting.

  • Firearms must remain holstered or cased until on the firing line. Any firearm not in use must have an OBI (Open Bolt Indicator) inserted. No loaded unholstered firearms are to leave the firing lane for any reason whatsoever. If problems are encountered, keep the firearm pointed downrange and alert range personnel.

  • Upon hearing the command CEASE FIRE unload all firearms,lay firearms down, and step back from firing line until range personnel release the line.

  • No expectant mothers allowed on the range at any time. Even very small amounts of lead contamination can affect unborn children.
