RANGE RULES. I, the undersigned, acknowledge that I have received, read and understand the Range Rules posted by Point Blank Range Mooresville, LLC and Point Blank Range Matthews LLC (individually and/or collectively, "PBR") and have watched the safety video as required by PBR and I agree to comply with all such rules and safety guidelines and to follow the instructions of any PBR Range Safety Officer at all times. I have been informed that basic firearms education courses are available to any user who is unfamiliar with shooting as a recreational activity. I further acknowledge and agree that failure to strictly comply with the Range Rules could result in my expulsion from the range and the temporary and/or permanent loss of range privileges. The undersigned hereby expressly acknowledges that the management of PBR reserves the right to immediately terminate the use of the PBR facility by any person who violates the PBR Range Rules or whose actions or conduct, in management's sole discretion, demonstrate unsafe firearm handling practices, a lack of proper training, or other disregard for the safety of the staff or other customers of Point Blank Range.
FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY; RELEASE. I hereby agree to be financially responsible and liable for any property damage resulting from my intentional or unintentional acts (or those of any family members) while on the business premises of PBR (the "Premises"), including damage resulting from shooting the target carrier (intentionally or unintentionally), rails, stall dividers or cameras. I agree that I am fully responsible for the loss or theft of, or damage to, any firearms or other personal property I bring to PBR or leave in my automobile on the Premises. I hereby release and hold harmless PBR and its affiliates (including, but not limited to, PBR Realty LLC and PBR Matthews Realty LLC), and each of their respective members, managers, officers, employees, agents and independent contractors, including instructors hired by PBR (collectively with PBR, the "PBR Affiliates"), from and against any claim arising out of or relating to the loss or theft of, or damage to, any such property and any claim for bodily injury arising out of the use of the Premises by me or any family members (including minor children) accompanying me on the Premises.

ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK; RELEASE. I acknowledge and agree that my presence on the Premises and my use of the indoor firing range operated by PBR involves and entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in bodily injury, emotional injury, permanent disability, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to others, including risks related to the use and discharge by myself and others of pistols, rifles, shotguns, machine guns and other firearms, which are dangerous activities.

My participation in activities at the Premises is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate despite both the known and the unanticipated risks.

All Point Blank Range Staff are NRA certified Range Safety Officers. Any direction or instruction from a Range Safety Officer must be immediately followed or you will be removed from the range. Point Blank Range reserves the right to deny access to, or remove any individual from the firing range at any time they feel that a person(s) is presenting a danger to the other individuals on the range.
- Gun safety is YOUR first and foremost responsibility. Be sure your firearm is safe to operate, and know how to use it safely. If you have any questions about the operating mechanism and safety features of your firearm, please ask a Range Safety Officer.
- All firearms must remain in a bag or case, flagged or holstered while in the facility unless they are being used on the firing line.
- When moving through the facility or Club Lounge with a firearm that is not in a case, keep the muzzle pointed at the ground.
- Eye and ear protection must be worn at all times. We recommend ear plugs and muffs for children.
- Keep all firearms pointed down range at all times. Never point a firearm at another person, even if unloaded.
- Never handle, load or unload a firearm behind the firing line.
- All loading/unloading procedures should be conducted in your lane, on the shooting table.
- Always keep the action open and firearm unloaded - with magazines removed - until ready to fire.
- Fire only when all persons are behind the firing line and safe conditions exist.
- Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
- Firearms are not to be left loaded and unattended on the range
- Do not move a firearm from one lane to another unless it is cased or flagged. Switch shooters-not guns.
- Do not bring any loaded or jammed weapons off the range for any reason. If you experience a problem, place the gun on the shelf in your lane pointed downrange and notify a Range Safety Officer.
- Upon the command "CEASE FIRE" stop all shooting immediately, put down your firearm and back away from the firing line.
- No food, drink, gum or tobacco is permitted inside the range.
- Please allow at least one second between shots. No rapid-fire permitted without the express permission of a Range Safety Officer. If you believe you are qualified to perform these actions, ask to speak to a Range Safety Officer before doing so.
- Point Blank Range provides complimentary D-Lead towel wipes - please use them or wash your hands each time you leave the range.
- No drawing from a holster or shooting from the hip without the express permission of a Range Safety Officer.
- You do not have to buy ammunition from Point Blank Range to use the range, but any outside ammunition must be inspected by a Range Safety Officer and use of such ammunition may be denied for any reason.
- A maximum of three shooters per lane is permitted.
- No pregnant women are permitted in the range due to the potential lead hazard. Young shooters (under 18 years of age) are only allowed to shoot on the range with their parent or guardian or other adult authorized under a signed Parental Consent; one young shooter per adult. No children under the age of 8 are allowed on the range nor are they to be left unaccompanied in the showroom while adults shoot.
- Please use the airlock as designed. Do not open the second door going in or out of the range until the first door is closed.
It is incumbent upon all shooters to act responsibly. If you observe an unsafe condition or any other situation that gives you concern, report it to a Range Safety Officer immediately. Remember, eye and ear protection on at all times ... open one door at a time ... have fun ... and be safe!
I have read and understand these Range Rules and agree to follow them at all times I am on the premises of Point Blank Range.
