1. Everyone who uses the range, regardless of experience, must first go through the range safety orientation and complete all required paperwork. No exceptions.
2. The use of alcohol and drugs, or being under the influence of alcohol or drugs before or during a shooting session is prohibited. In the sole discretion of “OGC", a prospective user may be required to undergo alcohol or drug testing before being allowed to shoot on the range.
3. No food, drink, chewing gum, vaping, or tobacco products are allowed on the range.
4. Eye and ear protection MUST be put on before entering the range and must remain on during the entire use of the range.
5. All firearms must be unloaded and cased while going to and from the range. Law Enforcement and Concealed Carry Permit holders are allowed to enter the facility holstered and “hot.” Upon request, “OGC” representatives have the right to demand to see your CCW permit, or law enforcement identification. For safety reasons, loaded firearms are prohibited in certain areas of the facility where dry fire exercises may take place. These areas include all classrooms, as well as the simulator room.
6. Shooters must remain behind the firing line at all times during open shooting hours.
7. Firearms and ammunition used on the range may be subject to inspection at any time. Class III firearms must be accompanied with all proper paperwork.
8. Firearms may be uncased or unholstered within the confines of the shooting booth ONLY. All firearm handling is restricted to the confines of the shooting booth. Never handle firearms outside the shooting booth area.
9. Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction while on the range. This means downrange.
10. Always keep your finger off the trigger until your firearm is pointed at the target and you are ready to shoot.
11. All targets must be placed at eye level to ensure the rounds go directly into the backstop. Be mindful of range damage, bullets do continue on a path beyond the paper and cardboard targets you are shooting at.
12. Only aimed fire is allowed on the range. This means firearms must be sighted at eye level. Shooting from the hip is specifically prohibited.
13. Firearms may only be tabled unloaded with the actions open and muzzle pointed downrange. For revolvers, this means cylinder open and visible, muzzle pointing downrange. For semi-automatics, this means slide locked to the rear, magazine removed, ejection port facing up, and muzzle pointing downrange. The only exception is during a Cease-Fire.
14. If you have brought more than one firearm, use only one at a time. When finished with one, secure the cleared firearm and ammunition in the case before moving on to use the next one.
15. Drawing from concealment, a holster, or rapid fire requires approval from the Range Safety Officer. It may be a pre-requisite to take one of the classes given at the Omaha Gun Club to perform these advanced shooting positions.
16. Drawing from the holster is allowed with the use of strong side holsters only. Care must be taken to keep your finger off the trigger at all times when your sights are not on target. Proper techniques are defined by finger and muzzle discipline.
17. Only use the correct ammunition designated for your firearm. Armor piercing/steel core and tracer ammunition are specifically prohibited. Omaha Gun Club staff understands the difference between steel jacketed and steel core. As a user of our facility, you are expected to have the same understanding.
18. Shot guns may be used with slugs.
19. Full automatics, while not allowed without restrictions during normal open shooting hours, may be used during scheduled or arranged times with staff supervision.
20. The following procedures must be followed for any firearm or ammunition problems that occur and cannot be resolved in a safe manner by the shooter:
- Remain in the shooting booth
- Keep the firearm pointed downrange.
- Raise your non-shooting hand to signal a Range Safety Officer that you are in need of assistance.
21. If you observe an unsafe condition, report it to a Range Safety Officer immediately.
22. Upon the command of “CEASE FIRE“, stop shooting immediately and engage the safety. Place your firearm on the table or ground pointing downrange and back away from the shooting booth. Do not under any circumstances re-approach the firing line or touch your firearm until the command of “ALL CLEAR“ is given.
23. All range commands given by Range Safety Officers must be obeyed immediately and without question. Range commands are non-negotiable.
24. Shooters may collect their personal shot brass within the confines of the shooting booth once they have cleared and secured their firearm in their case. Shooters must remain behind the firing line at all times.
25. Range Safety Officers must approve all targets used on the range. Targets deemed inappropriate by a Range Safety Officer are prohibited. Acceptable targets are available for purchase in our retail store.
26. Wash your hands and face after leaving the range. Be kind to your fellow shooters. Act responsibly at all times. Foul language, horseplay, or any other unsafe activity will not be tolerated. Shooters will be held financially responsible for range damage caused by improper or negligent use of a firearm.
