What are your hours and where are you located?

Saturday we're open from 10am-7pm, and Sunday from 10am-6pm. Last shooters are sent out (1) hour prior to closing in order to ensure they get the full hour they paid for. We are located right across the street from Bass Pro Shops (right off of 95!)

Can I come in to shoot if I have never shot before or do not own a gun?

Most certainly! We welcome beginners and experts alike. All you have to be is 21 years old or with someone who is 21 years old or older. If you're a beginner or new to shooting, just let us know at the front desk and we'll set you up with a qualified instructor to help you pick out the right firearm for you and provide you with instruction on its operation. We have a variety of rental guns, both handguns and long guns available to the public. You will just need your ID and you will need to purchase our ammo for the rental.

If I bring my own firearms, can I shoot my own ammo or reloads?

Yes, if you bring your our firearm you can use your own ammo - this goes for handguns, shot guns, AND rifles. In addition to bringing your ammo, you can pick up your own brass. Just be sure to let us and your RSO know you'd like to collect your own brass beforehand!

How do I rent a firearm?

If you're interested in renting a firearm, we suggest you start by taking a look at our gun counter to see what's available to rent! 

You'll need to purchase ammo from the range to use with the rental so once you choose the gun you'd like to rent, we'll have you sign our rental form and have you turn in your ID and keys for us to hold onto while you're out on the range and from there we'll get you all set up with a lane! 

You can rent multiple firearms at a time as well as pay to re-up your hour rental. Our handguns are $15 an hour and our long-guns are $20. 

What do I need to do before I shoot at your range?

All we ask is that you fill out our range waiver which you can easily do at the range or even at your own home! 

Just go to the Range Forms section of our website under the "SHOOT" tab and print off our range waiver. It's a quick front & back liability form - and we promise we won't make you watch a video with it. 

Besides that just make sure you wear closed-toed shoes and bring your ID if you need to rent anything. 

When you get to the range you can head straight back to the check-in desk with your completed waiver (or if you don't have your waiver - pick one up at the front table when you enter the facility!)

What kind of clothes should I wear to the range?

Closed toe shoes are mandatory, pants and high necked shirts (or anything that provides some protection from hot brass) are recommended. 

Can I draw from the holster on the range?

Yes, but you must be Holster Certified.  You can get your certification from WBISR by taking and successfully completing our Holster Skills Class offered several times a month!

How should I bring in my firearms?

All firearms need to be in a holster, case, bag or box until you're on the range and in your assigned lane.  

WBISR does permit both open and concealed carry HOWEVER all firearms carried off-body must be unloaded and cased until the shooter is on the firing line, and cased prior to leaving the firing line. If you do not have a case - please make sure to do the following before entering the facility:

  1. UNLOAD & CLEAR YOUR FIREARM
  2. MAKE SURE THE MAGAZINE IS REMOVED FROM THE FIREARM WITH THESLIDE LOCKED BACK
  3. RIFLES - we need to see that the chamber is cleared of any ammunition - meaning your ejection port cover must be OPEN (if the port does not lock open then be sure to place a flag or rod in the gun so that we know it's cleared)
