GENERAL RULES

If a minor is firing a rifle or handgun even with immediate adult supervision, it will be the Range Officer’s final decision as to whether that minor has the experience necessary to fire that firearm. If not, the Range Officer may stop them from shooting. Note: there is no minimum age for shooting at our range.
