Range Rules

Our goal is to make sure all guests have a safe and comfortable experience while using our indoor gun range. To help ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience, we've created a list of rules and requirements that must be followed at all times.

The Range Rules are designed to keep our clients and staff safe at all times. We will not compromise on safety. Safety is your responsibility.

  7. No steel core, armor piercing, tracer, steel cased ammunition allowed. Violators will be removed, and no refund given. KYGUNCO may test ammunition shooters bring into the range. If you have questions about your ammo ask the RSO before use! (If it sticks to a magnet, it is not allowed).
