Participant hereby agrees that Participant is aware of the fact, and assumes all risks, that there will be personnel of the Corporation and other participants on the training facilities with Participant. Participant assumes any and all risks of injury or damage from them or by them, and releases Corporation from any claim that its employees or agents are or may be negligent in connection with Participant's experience or ability, including but not limited to selection of firearms, ammunition, leather, gear, edged weapons or accessories pursuant to participation in Corporation's training programs, and/or use of the shooting range. Participant expressly agrees that this Participant Agreement, Hold Harmless Clause, Covenant Not to Sue and Release is governed by the laws of the State of Colorado and is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by Colorado law and that in the event any portion of the Agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the balance of the Agreement shall not be affected or impaired in any way and shall continue in full legal force and effect.
Participant voluntarily assumes all risk and danger of injury or death inherent in the use of force, and/or any firearm, ammunition, edged weapons, equipment, or gear provided to or used by the Participant. The Participant and all minor(s) agree to disclose any pre-existing injuries or other health concerns that may limit, interfere or be exacerbated by participation on the range or any training provided and further agrees to assume all risk for any exercises, drills, and aspects of training. If any participant becomes physically unable to participate during a session or feels the training will further aggravate or be harmful to a prior injury, the participant is responsible for curtailing any exercise or training immediately and is to inform the Range Safety Officer or Instructor. PARTICIPANT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THIS IS A CONTRACT AND AGREES THAT IF A LAWSUIT IS FILED AGAINST THE CORPORATION OR ITS OWNERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS, FOR ANY INJURY OR DAMAGES IN BREACH OF THIS CONTRACT, THE UNDERSIGNED WILL PAY ALL ATTORNEY'S FEES AND COSTS INCURRED BY THE CORPORATION IN DEFENDING SUCH ACTION.

Possess a hunting license or permit lawfully issued by the Federal Government, a State, or local government, or an Indian tribe federally recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, which is valid and unexpired.
