Accepting new members now!
We are accepting new members.  If you have ever thought about wanting a place nearby where you can enjoy your firearms with family and friends, we have what you need.  Our membership rates are explained below.  No other range offers its members what we provide for all our members.  The range is staffed, well maintained, safely administered, large with tons of room over 7 ranges, unique with steel plate ranges, open 362 days a year, and cheap.  I've spent more on a dinner out than a year's membership here costs.   Once you figure out which membership best fits your needs, go to the JOIN HERE page to complete the process. 

 

Recurring Payments...

Its easy to join and is only done from this web site.  All memberships are automatically recurring billing.  You can go with either a single annual payment every year or make even less expensive monthly payments.  It rocks on until you decide to quit.  You will get an email from us advising you of your upcoming payment a few days before it is to be collected.  You maintain complete control over your payments.  We use MoonClerk for membership processing along with over 8000 other membership businesses, mostly gyms, and it is secure, works well, and is easy to use.  We will contact you after you join for your range safety briefing, share instructions for range use, and answer any questions that you have.  

 

Call us at 205-744-2600 is you have any problems or questions.  Gift certificates are available at the range to hand out if you need them.

COVID-19 sucks

Its been a tough time.  Try running a hot dog stand with no hotdogs... or with hot dogs priced like t-bone steaks.  Now think about it with the gun range as the business instead of a hot dog stand and ammo instead of hot dogs.  Ammo availability and prices are killing gun ranges.  For example, look up the nicest indoor range in the area, the Sheepdog range in Trussville.  Give them a call.  See.  They aren't there anymore.  With that said, we are here.  The range looks great.  Everything is ready for you to use.  And, you can join quickly and easily  get access to the whole facility.  Go to the Join Here page and get your membership.  Follow up your purchase with a call to the range to schedule your range safety briefing.  We will call you back during an off peak time and conduct the Range Safety Orientation.  That's it.  Member's support of this facility has allowed us to survive where others are failing.  Your membership here will help ensure a long future for this range and you a great place to enjoy your firearms with friends and family for generations to come.

Membership Requirements

The requirements for range use or membership are:

  • having a valid driver's license or ID,

  • having a pistol permit or be able to get a pistol permit (no crimes of violence or felonies in your criminal history that would prevent you from legally possessing a firearm)

  • be of age to purchase a pistol or pistol ammo (be at least 21 years old).  

  • Fill out a membership agreement, agreeing to abide by safety rules while on the range.

  • participate in a range safety orientation.  

FOP Range Inc. Guest Policy
 

Members may bring guests with them to the range.  The guest fee is $20 per guest.  Guests must execute a liability waiver before getting range access.  Guests must physically stay with the member while on the facility.  The member is responsible for ensuring the members of his party abide by the range safety rules.  The only limit on the number of guests allowed per visit is the space available on the range.  During this Covid pandemic, we must support social distancing and to accomplish this end request that each person shooting use a separate shooting stall.   

 

Multi-Pass

The sale of multi-passes has been suspended due to the negative effects Covid-19 has had on finances at the facility.  We hope to resume its use at a future date.  

A Multi-Pass is (was) a guest pass that members may purchase for $50 that allows them to bring any one person when they come to the range and take them to the member's ranges.  The member may bring anyone as their guest with the Multi-Pass.  They may use the pass to bring someone different each time they come.  Members may bring additional guests but the normal $20 guest fee will be applied to the additional guests.   A Multi-Pass will pay for itself quickly.   

We may revisit the multi-pass in the future and implement it when it makes sense to do so. (When Covid-19 is a bad memory). 

Lessons learned from our COVID-19 experience...

We don't charge enough for our memberships.  Really.  The Tier One (old membership rate) rates above are the same as they were in 1996.   Shop it around.  Look at what you will pay for a single membership at any of the other gun ranges in the area.  We charge a third of what they get and our facility is superior in many ways.  Something has to change.  We have to charge more.  Access to this range is worth more than we are charging. 

How long will this last?  Looks to me like COVID-19 is going to be part of our lives for the foreseeable future.  Until a vaccine has eliminated the threat of death to our elderly loved ones, nothing regarding social distancing will change.  It is here to stay.  Whether a cure is found or not is kind of irrelevant.  We are too cheap.  When filling the Main Range with by the day paying people became impossible, we found ourselves in a very bad spot.  I applied for a PPP loan through my bank on the first day it was available and got it a month later.  It will help offset the losses we are now enjoying.  Changes had to be made.  I created a tiered membership system that is as fair as I can make it to all.  Rates have to go up.  This is how we get there.

Commercial use...

Commercial use of the facility for conducting training classes is possible here.  We have several individuals who offer training services who have satisfied the few requirements we have; active certification as an instructor, insurance covering your training activities naming the FOP Range Inc as an "also insured", and a business license with the State for the operation of your training business.
