No one will shoot in our range without a safety clearance first. This means new shooters must read, understand and sign the safety rules. Any questions will be politely answered and explained.
Don't be embarrassed to ask us to get you started safely or answer any firearm questions you might have. We have fully qualified instructors available to teach anyone to shoot and handle firearms safely.
Everyone will wear hearing and eye protection while in the range.
Standard Rifle, Shotgun and Pistol Safety Rules to follow anywhere:
1. Treat ALL GUNS as if they are ALWAYS LOADED.
2. DO NOT POINT the gun at anything that you do not want to shoot. Keep ALL guns pointed downrange.
3. KEEP your FINGER OFF the TRIGGER until you are aimed at your target and ready to fire.
4. BE SURE OF your TARGET and WHAT'S BEHIND IT.
5. Only one shooter fires from your lane at one time.
6. Unload, case or holster your gun before going into or coming out of range.
7. If you have a jam or malfunction that you cannot safely clear, leave gun on bench pointed downrange and ask us for assistance.
A Range Officer will be keeping close watch on range activities through windows and video monitors.
ALL AMMO WILL BE INSPECTED.
BE PREPARED TO HAVE ALL AMMO THAT YOU BRING INSPECTED.
Full Metal Jacket or Plain Lead is OK.
Hollow points are OK with our new backstop.
No armor piercing, tracer or incendiary rounds. All rifle ammo will be checked with a magnet.
If you shoot .223 (5.65 mm) full metal jacket lead ammo is hard to find at a decent price these days, partly because Winchester and Remington are filling military orders first before retail orders. At the gun shows it is easier to find SS-109 or M-855 (green tipped steel core rounds) than regular lead only rounds. Many people believe that all you have to look for is the green painted tips. This is not true. British SS-109 ammo is not painted, therefore we check all rifle ammo with a magnet before we allow it in our range. We advise shooters to keep a magnet with them when shopping for rifle ammo so they know what they are buying. Armor piercing ammo has it's place, in the field against enemy, not in our range.
ABSOLUTELY NO STEEL OR ALUMINUM CASE AMMO! (IT IS A PROBLEM WITH THE RECYLING OF BRASS CASES.)
Wolf Ammo is CRAP anyway and you shouldn't use it in fine firearms with tight tolerances.
No black powder. (too much smoke)
Lead slugs and shot are OK. No steel shot. $3.00 extra charge to replace the cardboard target hanger if it is fairly fresh when you start. $5.00 extra charge for each metal target carrier hit.
Silver Bullet also warns shooters not to use reloads unless you know the reloader is experienced and does a decent job of re-manufacturing your ammo. We have pieces of hand guns that have blown up like a grenade from either over charging reloads or under charging them causing "squib loads" (a bullet lodged in the barrel because there wasn't sufficient power to fully discharge, causing the next round to possibly blow up the gun).
GUNS WILL ONLY BE RENTED TO 2 OR MORE PEOPLE VISITING TOGETHER.
WE WILL NOT RENT TO INDIVIDUALS.
Handgun Rental Rates are as follows:
$17.00 for one gun, $30.00 for two.
Members pay $12.00 for one and $20.00 for two.
Training Students can use our rentals in our classes free of extra charge.
Range fee, ammo and targets are not included.
Silver Bullet Shooting Range reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone for any reason, not limited to the following reasons:
Intoxication, Unsafe Gun Handling, Gangster Style Sideways Shooting, Unskilled Rapid Fire, Bothering or Distracting Other Shooters, Theft, Dishonesty, Offensive Behavior, Intentionally Damaging Equipment, Teaching Bad Shooting Habits to Others, etc.
If a problem between a shooter and our staff cannot be resolved, the shooter or visitor will be asked to leave.
Often we are very busy and there may be a wait for your turn to use our range. Please be patient and soon a lane will open up for shooters in the order that they have signed in.
