DAY SHOOT RANGE INFO
Our Day Shoot Range is open to anyone who wants a safe place to shoot. Here you can see the 12 handgun shooting positions. In front of them are 12 10 yard target stands for your use. The choices in the area for ranges for anyone who wants to shoot rifles and handguns without having to purchase membership are very slim. Need to sight in a rifle for hunting season? This is the place to do it. There are a few private gun clubs within a 30 minute drive of Birmingham but they all have membership requirements, a membership committee to get through, referrals from existing members required, work days required, competition participation required, NRA membership required. Here, the only requirements are that you be able to legally possess a handgun and that you are safe while you are here. That's it! Come see us.
The big traffic light on the Day Shoot Range will remind shooters of the proper range condition... When the light is green, the range is hot. Shooters may load and engage their targets. The light stays green for 15 minutes. The light will go yellow for one minute between green and red. Yellow gives you notice that the range is about to go cold. When the light is red, the range is cold, every one clears their chamber, opens the action, and benches their gun. While the light is red and the range is cold, there is no weapon handling allowed... period. Set up your target, replace your target, or take a break until the range is hot again. When the range is hot, you may handle your weapon... get it out, set it up on the rifle rest, load and shoot until the range goes cold again.
