First Time Visitors...
LGR is currently
CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
as we work on our membership program, update safety protocols and adjust standard operating procedures on range.
When we do open back up to the public, it will begin with weekend only public range access.

We understand that these are unprecedented times and we call upon our members and staff to help keep our doors open. Please be patient with us and with each other as we work through these challenges together.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE...
ALL FIREARMS MUST COME IN A CASE, AND LEAVE IN A CASE*.
Firearms must remain in a case throughout your visit at the range unless on the firing line for use. There are tables provided behind the firing line for bags, cases, and other gear to be stored when not in use. There shall be no uncased firearms anywhere but on the firing line, so please remember to case your firearm at the line before your departure.
Please make sure to identify on your firearms case which direction the muzzle is pointing in order to ensure all firearms being pointed downrange when setting up on the firing line.
COMPLIANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS
All firearms legally possessed and in full compliance with State & Federal laws are welcome at the Linden Gun Range. LGR Staff will offer no legal advice concerning the legality of your firearms and / or equipment. For questions regarding your firearms and / or equipment, please visit:
We recommend shorts or pants, close-toed shoes, a hat and appropriate fitting tops. Open-toe footwear, loose shirts, tank tops, and skirts are strongly discouraged.
We are a shooting range, and not a testing ground. Steel core, armor piercing, incendiary, tracer ammunition is strictly prohibited and not allowed on the property. Be advised that if you are found to be in possession of such ammunition on the range, you will be instructed to leave for the day and no refund will be provided.
If you have specific testing requirements, please contact the LGR staff ahead of your visit.
ARE PETS ALLOWED?
Documented service animals are welcome on range, but must remain in an area safe from the noise and heat. If you are a K-9 Handler, please contact LGR staff ahead of your visit for approval.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE...
All visitors to the property must stop in at the front office to check-in. You will provide your valid Government issued photo ID, review / sign the LGR Liability Waiver (or complete prior to your visit by following the links below), pay for your range entry and be given a safety briefing.
DURING THE SAFETY BRIEFING...
We will review all of the range safety rules. Some rules you may already be familiar with, but there are some rules that are specific to our range. If you need clarification on any range safety rule, please don't hesitate to ask! We will have a qualified Range Safety Officer (RSO) to assist you with any final questions before you approach the firing line.
Safety is of the utmost importance at LGR. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE rule when it comes to pointing / flagging / muzzling of a firearm at any Range Safety Officer, Staff Member, or Patron on the facility. You will be instructed to pack up your gear and leave the facility for the day. You will be eligible to return at a later date pending that the incident does not repeat itself. It is our priority to maintain a safe range.
In compliance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ('ADA'),the Linden Gun Range will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its programs, services, or activities. The Linden Gun Range will make reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disability have an equal opportunity to enjoy our programs, services, facilities, and activities. If you need assistance with an ADA request,
please contact our ADA Coordinator.
*LEGAL CCW IS PERMITTED ON SITE.
Please inform our staff if you are carrying upon arrival. Our staff will watch you SAFELY de-holster / make safe at a designated safe zone. When you are ready to re-holster, please notify an RSO. They will escort you to a safe zone and watch you SAFELY make ready / re-holster your firearm. Please do not re-holster on site without the assistance of a RSO, i.e. in our parking lots, vehicle, restroom, etc.
NEW TO YOUR FIREARMS & OPTICS
If you have just purchased a new or used firearm or have added a new optic that needs to be tested, please inform our office staff. Our RSO's will assist you with sighting and zeroing in your firearms. Please note that RSO's cannot handle your firearm. If you require additional instruction, please consider a firearm training course.
ROLE OF THE RANGE SAFETY OFFICERS
Our RSO's are there to maintain safety on the firing lines. If you have any malfunctions on the firing line, WITH THE MUZZLE POINTED DOWN RANGE & FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER, please flag an RSO for assistance. They will assist you first verbally so that you can go through the experience of learning how to handle the malfunction safely. If there is a need for the RSO to handle the firearm, the proper forms shall be filled out prior to moving forward. Our RSOs main purpose / priority is to maintain safety; not to sight in, instruct, shoot, or fix your firearms for you.
CERTAIN RANGES HAVE QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
Our range is surrounded by vineyards, residences, and other roadways. Because of this, the 200 yard range requires a safety qualification before you can shoot on it. Please inform the rifle range RSO if you would like to qualify - he / she will provide further instruction.
WHEN YOU ARE READY TO LEAVE...
We hope you had a great experience! Be sure to double check your surrounding area(s) for any misplaced gear. If any person in your group was issued a Spectator Badge, be sure to exchange it in the office for a $5 coupon toward your next entry.
Facility closes at 5:00 p.m.
All gear, firearms and accessories must be loaded in your vehicle and exiting facility by 5:00 p.m.
1) TREAT ALL FIREARMS AS IF THEY ARE LOADED

3) KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON TARGET

Chamber flags are required to be in place when your firearm is not being used and / or when any person is downrange during ceasefire. If you do not have a chamber flag, they are available for purchase in the range office.
