Do you plan on visiting us?
Save time now... register and complete a short training video and waiver now before you arrive. Then, simply tell our staff that you've completed the online training and provide your date of birth and you're ready to head into the range! Note: This video and waiver are required upon your arrival at Jefferson Indoor if you have not previously completed it online.
What should you bring?
- A range bag, holster or firearms case.
- Your firearm(s) should be safe and secured at all times. This means UNLOADED in a proper range bag, holster or factory/commercial gun case.
- Proper safety of all firearms is paramount and can only be a positive thing for all patrons, preventing the possibility of negligent discharge.
- Hearing and Eye Protection.
- Certified Hearing and eye protection is required at all times in the range area. We recommend hearing protection of at least 25+ decibels and ballistic rated eye protection.
- Clothing and safety equipment.
- We recommend you wear CLOSED-TOED shoes as well as a shirt with a normal collar (no v-neck, low-cut, etc.). When expended cartridges are ejected from firearms, they are extremely hot. Even the casing touching your skin in enough time for it to bounce off will leave a mark visible the next day. There have been several instances of harm or death occurring due to hot casings falling into a shirt while the shooter is on the range. Don't let this happen to you... come prepared.
- We highly recommend bringing wet-wipes and band-aids. When it comes to firearms, things happen... slides can cut even the most experienced of shooters.
- Cleaning solution. We recommend purchasing a lead cleaning solution, such as "LEAD-OFF". We also caution against eating in the lounge area or following any range visit until you have thoroughly cleaned your hands and face.
CAUTION: If you have your own firearm and will be arriving with it, please ensure it is UNLOADED with the slide LOCKED BACK. It is strictly forbidden to load any weapon (including magazines) in the lounge or seating areas. All loading must be done on the range and in your assigned lane. At no time should you leave the walled lane you are assigned to load a magazine. NOTICE: Leaving the walled lane you are assigned with a firearm (other than transporting it to the lobby to resolve your tab) could result in expulsion from the property.
AT NO TIME is horseplay, mock aiming, unsafe use of firearms, etc. allowed in the range, lobby or surrounding property of Jefferson Indoor Range. Doing so could result in expulsion or banning from the property.
