Range Time Fees

Extended (discounted) Memberships are available for frequent users.


Range Cards
To obtain a range card, all shooters must complete a two-hour firearms safety and Range Orientation session and pass an open-book, written test with a score of at least 80%. Cost of a range card is $15 for Wake County residents and $25 for residents of other counties (replacement cards $5). This fee includes orientation session, range card and five (5) $2-off coupons for future visits. You do not have to preregister for Range Orientation sessions; just bring a picture ID (preferably driver's license). The sessions are generally scheduled four or five times per month; check dates and times. 


Facility Layout
The public section of the indoor range has three bays:

Ten positions for standing pistol shooting at distances up to 50 yards.
Nine concrete benches for pistol or rifle shooting, seated or standing, at distances up to 50 yards.
Nine concrete benches for rifle up to 100 meters.

Safety
All firearms brought into the building must be unloaded and contained in a case or box. Firearms may be removed from cases or boxes only at an assigned firing station, unless for inspection by a Range Safety Officer (RSO). Eyesight and hearing protection is required while shooting.

Firearms safety rules and range procedures will be strictly enforced. Penalties for rules violations will range from RSO correction of minor errors to permanent expulsion from the Center. Unruly behavior will not be tolerated and could result in the arrest of that person.


Sales and Rentals
Safety glasses, earplugs and earmuffs may be purchased or rented at the range, along with various paper targets, rifle and pistol rests, and spotting scopes. A limited variety of the most popular ammunition is available for sale. Purchase prices for all items will be in line with prices charged by local gun shops.


Staff
All range personnel are National Rifle Association of America Certified Range Safety Officers. Range Safety Management, LLC (RSM), a North Carolina corporation based in Holly Springs, provides staffing of the range.
