I, the undersigned, on behalf of myself, and my heirs and assigns, hereby acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to enter on to and to engage in and/or observe shooting and other activities at BTO Range & Training Center (hereinafter collectively referred to as "BTO Range"). These activities include, but are not limited to, the use and discharge of firearms provided either by me or by the BTO Range, and the services and training by employees or contractors of BTO Range.
I acknowledge that the use of a shooting range entails known and unanticipated risks which could result in serious physical injury, death, dismemberment, or damage to me, to property, or to other persons.
I understand that participation may result in the undersigned or other persons being shot by a firearm; suffering hearing loss; eye injury or loss; inhalation or contact with airborne contaminants and/or flying debris, and other hazards associated with an indoor firing range.
Unless I specifically inform BTO Range staff otherwise at check-in, I represent that I am experienced and skilled in the proper handling, loading, use and discharge of all firearms and ammunition I intend to use at the BTO Range facility and am familiar and well versed in the fundamental rules of firearms handling and safety. I understand that BTO Range is specifically relying on the truth of my representations concerning my experience with firearms and knowledge of safety rules, in permitting me to make use of its facilities.
I further certify that I have no medical, mental or physical conditions, which could interfere with my safety in this activity, or if such conditions exist, I have made an informed judgment that they are minor, and I am willing to assume the risks that my conditions create, directly or indirectly, and bear the costs and responsibilities for those conditions.
I certify that I have never been convicted of a felony or a crime of domestic violence in any of the 50 United States. I understand that Texas and/or Federal law prohibits any person convicted of a felony or a crime of domestic violence to be present in any environment where firearms are present.
I further acknowledge and understand that BTO Range is an indoor shooting facility open to the general public, and the publication of the BTO Range Code of Conduct/Range Safety Rules, and the provision of staff and range safety officers in no way constitutes a guaranty or warranty of any kind. BTO Range shall not be liable as to the conduct of any person on or off the premises of BTO Range or the compliance or failure to comply with any rules or codes of conduct by any person.
AS LAWFUL CONSIDERATION FOR BEING PERMITTED BY BTO RANGE & TRAINING CENTER (“BTO RANGE”) TO ENTER AND USE ITS FACILITIES OR EQUIPMENT AND TO ENGAGE IN OR OBSERVE SHOOTING AND OTHER ACTIVITIES AS A PARTICIPANT, I AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
I agree to abide by “BTO RANGE & TRAINING CENTER RULES AND REGULATIONS” now and as modified in the future.
I agree to assume full responsibility for any and all risks, injuries, or damages, known or unknown, which I might incur as a result of entering onto and using the BTO Range facilities or equipment and in engaging in or observing shooting and other activities, including death.
I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless BTO RANGE from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with my participation at this facility, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of BTO RANGE.
I agree that I, my next of kin, heirs, guardians, representatives and assigns HEREBY RELEASE AND FOREVER DISCHARGE AND AGREE NOT TO SUE BTO RANGE or its assigns (I understand that “BTO RANGE” includes any and all members, officers, directors, attorneys, agents, employees, contractors, volunteers, guests and affiliated individuals or organizations of BTO RANGE) from and against any and all claims, demands, damages, expenses, causes of action, or liability of any kind.
Should BTO RANGE or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.
I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while attending BTO RANGES’ facility, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage to myself, to property, or to other persons.
I ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO COMPLY WITH ALL RANGE RULES AND REGULATIONS. I UNDERSTAND IF I DO NOT FOLLOW THE RULES AND REGULATIONS, I MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE FACILITY.
I have carefully read this “Shooting Range Liability Waiver” and “BTO RANGE & TRAINING CENTER RULES AND REGULATIONS”, and fully know its contents. I acknowledge that no other inducement, assurance or guarantee has been made to me in consideration of my signing this Agreement, which I sign voluntarily and of my own free will. I further acknowledge that this Agreement may be amended or modified only by a writing signed by me and by an authorized agent of BTO RANGE.
I UNDERSTAND THAT BY MY SIGNATURE I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS; THAT I AM AGREEING NOT TO SUE BTO RANGE, AND HOLDING HARMLESS BTO RANGE OF ALL LIABILITY.
