- Firearm safety is YOUR first and foremost responsibility. Be sure your firearm is safe to operate, use the appropriate ammunition, and know how to use it safely. If you have any questions about the operating mechanism and/or safety features of your firearm, please ask a Range Safety Officer (RSO) for assistance.
- Consumption of alcoholic beverages or drugs (including prescription and over-the-counter medications) that will affect your ability to participate with a maximum state of awareness and in a completely safe manner, BEFORE OR DURING any live fire activities is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

- It is strongly recommended that pregnant woman do not enter any of the range bays due to the risks associated with lead and noise exposure.

- Please use the airlock as designed. Do not open the second door going in or out of the range until the first door is closed.
- Wash your hands after each range use with cold soap and water. OnPoint provides designated handwashing stations for your convenience.

You must be at least 21 years of age to rent or purchase a handgun and/or handgun ammunition from OnPoint or 18 years of age to rent or purchase a long gun without a parent or guardian. Individuals between 18-20 years of age who bring their own firearm and ammunition may use the range without a parent or guardian.
- Young shooters (under 18 years of age) are only allowed to shoot on the range with their parent or guardian or other adult authorized under a signed Parental Consent; one young shooter per adult. No children under the age of 8 are allowed on the range, unless they are in a class specified for youth, nor are they to be left unaccompanied anywhere in the facility.
- Tactical vests and body armor are only permitted by law enforcement personnel, instructors actively instructing, and students in specified classes.
- Only OnPoint approved 3rd party instructors may use the range to conduct training. All 3rd Party Instructors are required to carry liability insurance and name OnPoint as an additional insured. Instructors will need to inform the RSO prior to beginning a training session. All instruction and training activities are required to follow all OnPoint safety and guest policies and must not infringe on another guest's experience.
Ammunition / Firearms Restrictions
- All firearms used must be legally compliant, functionally safe, and operable.
- If you will be renting a firearm, you must purchase ammunition from OnPoint.
- Excessively large or high velocity cartridges (calibers exceeding either a maximum velocity of 3,888 fps or a maximum or 3,600 ft./lbs. of energy) that are unsuitable and/or unsafe for an indoor 25-yard range are not permitted. These prohibited cartridges generally include .50 BMG, steel core, tracer, incendiary, armor-piercing, non-brass casing, and other unsuitable ammunitions. Only slugs and buckshot are allowed for shotguns. Any outside ammunition may be inspected by an RSO and use of such ammunition may be denied for any reason.
- Hand-loaded ammunition is allowed in individual shooting stalls; however, only factory ammunition is permitted during training or group events.
- Black powder & muzzle loading firearms are not permitted.
- NFA paperwork is required for fully automatic firearms and NFA accessories. Fully automatic firearm rentals are subject to restrictions.
Firing Line Safety
- All firearms must be fired in a controlled manner.
- A maximum of two persons are allowed per shooting lane, but only one person may occupy the stall while shooting. The 2nd person must allow sufficient space behind the shooter to allow the RSO to pass freely. The only exceptions to this rule is when an OnPoint or approved 3rd party instructor is working with a student, or an adult with a child.
- Eye and ear protection must always be worn by shooters and spectators while inside the range.
- No food, drink, gum, tobacco, or vaping devices are permitted inside the range. Smoking or vaping is only allowed in the designated area outside of the facility.
- Always keep all firearms pointed down range toeward the target in your lane. No exceptions. Any unsafe handling of a firearm will result in immediate removal from the range.
- Always keep the action open and firearm unloaded until ready to fire. Keep your finger off the trigger until sights are aligned and you are ready to shoot. Fire only when all persons are behind the firing line and safe conditions exist.
- Shooters may only shoot at targets in their assigned lane; no cross-lane shooting or shooting at walls, ceiling, target carriers/holders, etc.
- Firearms may be moved from one lane to another if they are unloaded and cased. Otherwise, move shooters between lanes, not firearms.
- If you need to leave the range for any reason, unload your firearm in the shooting stall and notify an RSO.
- If there is a misfire, be sure to keep the muzzle pointed down range (preferably on target) for at least 45 seconds, in case it is a hang fire.
- Do not bring any firearms that are loaded or have malfunctioned off the range for any reason. If you experience a problem, place the firearm on the bench in your lane pointed down range, step back from the shooting stall, and raise hand to notify an RSO.
- Upon the command of “CEASE FIRE” or the sound of a whistle, stop all shooting immediately. Place the firearm on the bench with the muzzle pointed down range, back away from the firing line, and await further instruction.
- Drawing from a holster is only permitted for those possessing a holster draw certification from OnPoint. If you have been certified to draw from a holster, notify an RSO before doing so. Holsters must have some form of retention; however, no holsters with retention release buttons near the trigger area are allowed (i.e. SERPA-style).
- Only shoot as fast as you are comfortable shooting regardless of any game or drill prompts given.
- You may collect brass within the confines of your shooting stall only once you have cleared and cased your firearm; however, any brass that falls beyond the line of fire must be left.
- When you have completed firing you must clear all firearms and stow them properly in their cases prior to exiting the shooting stall and range area. Each shooter on the range must clean up their bench and collect their targets prior to leaving. Those who are authorized by OnPoint to carry a personal firearm must holster their firearm while facing down range prior to exiting their shooting stall. DO NOT UNHOLSTER YOUR FIREARM FOR ANY REASON UNLESS INSTRUCTED BY A RANGE STAFF MEMBER.
- If you observe an unsafe condition or any other situation that gives you concern, report it to a RSO immediately.
IN ALL CASES THE RSO'S DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. HIS/HER DECISIONS ARE BASED ON THE CURRENT SITUATION AS IT EXISTS, AND HIS/HER JUDGEMENT DICTATES. THE RSO'S DECISIONS MAY SUPERCEDE THE GENERAL PRINTED RULES.
I have read and understand these Range Rules and agree to follow them at all times while on OnPoint premises.
