2. All firearms entering the facility must be either holstered or unloaded and cased. Customers who are legally allowed to do so may enter the facility holstered and hot. Firearms must remain holstered or cased in all common areas except when in use on the range. For safety reasons, loaded firearms and ammunition are prohibited in certain areas of the facility where dry fire exercises may take place. Firearms and ammunition are prohibited in the classroom.

3. Never use alcohol or drugs before or during shooting.

4. No food, drink, chewing gum, or tobacco products are allowed on the range.

5. Eye and ear protection is required; these items MUST be put on before entering and during the entire use of the range.

6. All firearm handling is restricted to the confines of the shooting booth. The shooting booth is defined as the area between the booth partitions on the range. When removing or securing a firearm from a case/bag, the case/bag must be brought to the confines of the shooting booth to do so. Never handle firearms in the area behind the shooting booth. Firearms must be cased or holstered in this area even if they are just being moved between lanes.

8. Always keep your finger off the trigger until your firearm is pointed at the target and you are ready to shoot.

9. All targets must be placed at eye level to ensure the rounds go directly into the backstop. Multiple targets are allowed but they must all be placed at eye level. Be mindful of range damage, bullets do continue on a path beyond the paper and cardboard targets you are shooting at.

12. If you have brought more than one firearm, use only one at a time. When finished, make sure to clear the firearm before using the next one. Always use the proper ammunition with your firearm.

13. Drawing from the holster is prohibited. If you are a Maryland Concealed Carry permit holder who is legally carrying, please notify RANGE staff if you wish to shoot your concealed firearm. They will supervise the retrieval of that firearm once on the firing line. The firearm may not be re-holstered without notifying RANGE staff. Practice draws are prohibited.

14. Firearms and ammunition used in the range are subject to inspection at any time.

Remain in the shooting booth while keeping the firearm pointed downrange and signal a Range Safety Officer for assistance. Raising your non-shooting hand will signal a Range Safety Officer that you are in need of assistance.

20. If you observe an unsafe condition, report it to a Range Safety Officer immediately.

21. Upon the command of CEASE FIRE, stop shooting immediately, engage safety, place your firearm on the table or ground pointing down range, and back away from the shooting booth.
