Range Rules:

  • Eye and ear protection are mandatory.
  • All shooters must have valid US issued Photo ID. Pistol shooters must have a valid Connecticut pistol permit or blue card.
  • Active military with current, active ID, armed guards with current blue card, corrections officers with current carry permit, police officers and other law enforcement officers with valid ID shoot for one hour FREE.
  • If a member’s privileges have been suspended they must sign in as a regular public Shooter and pay the public rate. There will be no exceptions. The Range Officers on duty will be responsible for enforcing this and their decision in any dispute will be final. Any member who does not obey the Range Officer on duty may be brought up on charges by the Range Captain before the membership.
  • The General Public takes priority over the membership in regards to shooting ports on busy days. This is part of our agreement with the state. Any member who wishes to sign in as a member of the General Public may do so and pay the current rate, if they do not wish to share or wait for an open port. Also any port that is being used by a member that is required by the Range Officer for a public shooter must be relinquished at the request of the Range Officer. One port is to be reserved, on busy days, for the use of members in relays.
  • All persons on the range must obey all commands of the Range Officers on duty and must abide by their decisions.
  • If there are any disputes on the range with the public or membership, the Range Officers on duty will make the final decision and all must abide by it or leave the range area.
  • Please bring your own targets and staplers. We’ll provide the target stands, but we expect you to have targets. You can always print some out for free from if you don’t have any.
