Rules And Common Sense
This is a map of the Range where you are allowed to travel freely. Green area's are where you can go and the RED area's are where you are to stay away from at all times.
As a member of "Deep 50 Gun Range” you agree to these basic rules. We know we all dislike rules, but these are primarily for safety purposes and respect for others.
NFA "Class 3 " Firearms And Suppressors
Under no circumstance are you to bring an illegal firearm onto the property. With respect to NFA/Class 3 items such as suppressors, if you have obtained them legally, you have a Tax Stamp for them. Deep 50 Gun Range, LLC needs to verify that you possess the device legally, as a condition of our insurance coverage. This is not intended to violate your privacy - it is to ensure that we are properly insured and can maintain our operating permit. This process is not an unusual practice at legitimate range facilities as it is considered best practice for range operations. This process has the added bonus that, if ATF knows we are running an organization with appropriate checks and balances, they are less likely to feel the need to do inspections and/or harass our members.
Without having validated legal ownership, Deep 50 Gun Range, LLC has no option than to prohibit NFA/Class 3 items to be used or even on the property. To that end, you are required to forward a copy of your tax stamp to [email protected] for each and every NFA/Class 3 device you bring to the range. If you are uncomfortable sending us such a document (we redact them on our side and store them securely) then we can make arrangements for an in-person inspection. Whether here or at any other range, we suggest that you always keep a copy of your tax stamp with you as this will minimize the risk of a problem should ATF conduct inspection or enforcement activities. We want everyone to be able to enjoy the range and we hope you can appreciate the need to make sure we are protecting ourselves and our members, and to ensure that our ability to continue operating will not be in jeopardy.
Your use of the facility constitutes agreement with these rules, which you also signed and agreed to during the membership process.
1.) The facility is a "Cold Range"
What this means is that unless you are in a designated shooting bay, your gun must be unloaded at all times (no magazine inserted) with the hammer down or chamber clearly flagged from a distance.
2.) Types of firearms allowed in the General Purpose Bays.
1.) All pistols with pistol caliber ammunition ( you can shoot at Steel plates )

3.) All other rifles can use any berm up to the 200 yard berm. You are allowed to shoot steel at 200 yards and we provide that.
4.) No Pistols at all.
5.) If you have a new scope you mounted and want to sight it in, please go to the General Purpose Bay and sight in at 25 yards first before proceeding to the rifle bay. This will give you a 100 yard hit and you can fine tune from there.

If you holster your pistol, make sure your safety is on and locked in your holster before facing up range.
3.) In the rifle bay, you obviously can shoot under the building structure on the mounted benches provided. You may shoot prone on the concrete slab and not ahead of anyone else who may be there.

When holding a gun, rest your finger alongside the frame and outside the trigger guard. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.
ALWAYS Keep The Gun Pointed In A Safe Direction
This is the primary rule of gun safety. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.
ALWAYS Keep The Gun Unloaded Until Ready To Use
If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
