If I am not shooting, can I go into the range?
To be a spectator in the range you still must do paperwork and waiver, but there will be no charge for range.
How do leagues work?
Each league season is 12 weeks. Each week consists of 3 targets with varying time constraints, and each target gets 10 shots. Score is tabulated based on the amount of points you have for each target, and that will give your weekly raw score. With the exception of the scratch league, your handicap score (determined by your average) is added to your raw score every week to determine your final weekly score. Scores that total over 300 points for a week will use the raw score only. At the end of the season, the shooter with the highest overall score is the winner. We currently have 9 available leagues, and adult leagues are $10/week.
Can I transfer a gun through your store?
As of September, 2018, internet transfers are $30, person-to-person transfers are $25. For internet transfers have the dealer that is sending the firearm send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a copy of our FFL. Make sure your information is in the email so we can match the firearm to the customer. We will contact you when the firearm arrives and is ready for pickup.
Can I keep my brass?
If you would like to keep your brass inform the Range Safety Officer before you start shooting. You are only allowed to collect you own brass. You may not collect the brass that has gone beyond the firing line.
Can I shoot reloads?
Reloads are not allowed to be used at our range without prior approval. If you wish to use your reloads, they must be inspected and approved by our gunsmith. If the RSO on duty notices any issues or safety concerns while you’re using them, they can instruct you to stop using them.
Can I draw from a holster?
Drawing from a holster is generally not allowed at The Cabin. However, we do have an evaluation process, as well as holster draw classes available to clear shooters for holster draw. Regardless, drawing from the holster, even if on the approved list, is at the discretion of the Range Safety Officers and often dictated by the status and capacity of the range. If you wish to draw from the holster AND are on the approved list, you must check with the RSO(s) on duty.
Can I rapid fire?
You can shoot rapidly as long as you can control the firearm.
Do you have machine guns? Can I shoot my fully auto firearm? Can I shoot my firearm with a suppressor?
We do not have full auto firearms for rent. We do allow fully auto for special events, make sure you bring in your paperwork. You can shoot your firearm with your suppressor if you bring in your paperwork for our records.
Can my friends and I use each other’s firearms?
If you are at the range with friends and have separate lanes, you must keep the firearms in the lane they started in and physically switch to the other lane with the firearm you wish to use. You are not allowed to hand firearms back and forth or transfer them between lanes.
