Can I use the range if my membership card hasn’t arrived yet?
Yes, just keep your receipt from where you paid (print off if an online receipt) and take it with you to the range so you can show a Range Office when they ask for it.
Can I use the range if I am not a member?
Yes, we do offer a drop in option for people who are visiting or use the range infrequently. There is a drop-in fee of $10 per session, payable at the Range Office or at the sign in building at the gate. If a member brings you as a guest, the drop-in fee is only $5 per session.
