Club Rules

  • As of February 1st, 2019, Boston Gun and Rifle has become a lead free range to protect the health of staff, members and guests. In order to ensure that only lead free ammo is used, members must purchase ammo directly from the club. Members may not bring their own ammo.
  • Only pistols and pistol caliber rifles are allowed to be used in the range. Only the following calibers are allowed: .380acp, 9mm, .38spl, .40s&w and .45acp
  • Guest Policy: Members may bring a guest that has an LTC for $25. More than one guest will require prior approval. The guest must remain in the same booth as the member. Guests who do not have an LTC will need to have an instructor present and the fee will be $100 since the instructor will need to be present the whole time.
  • Members may draw from a holster with the condition that they lift up the shooting booth table and step into the center of the booth. Great caution must be taken to ensure safety!
  • Members are allowed to shoot rapidly as long as they can safely do so without hitting the ceiling or any equipment. You may be asked to stop if you damage any property.
  • Firearms must be in a case or holster when entering the club. Un-holstering or removing firearms from a case must be done in a shooting booth.
  • All loading/unloading of firearms must be done in a shooting booth. There is absolutely no handling of loaded firearms except while in a shooting booth on the range with the firearm pointed down range.
  • Any uncased or unholstered firearms in the club area must be unloaded and have the action open.
  • No firearm is to ever be left unattended at any location in the club.
  • Members may not have more than one gun out in the shooting booth at one time. All other guns must be unloaded in your range bag or gun case.
  • Members must keep fingers off the trigger at all times until they are on target and ready to shoot.
  • Members must keep the muzzle of the firearm pointed downrange at all times. Muzzles must be pointed downrange while loading, unloading, manipulating the firearm or while the gun is resting on the bench.
  • Eye and ear protection is MANDATORY at all times while on the range.
  • Any member may call a "Cease Fire". When a cease fire is called, all shooting is to stop immediately and firearms should be cleared and made safe and then placed on the counter in the shooting booth. Shooters are to step back from the booth and stand behind the yellow line until the "All Clear" command is given.
  • If you are unable to clear a jam, place the firearm down on the booth counter with the muzzle pointed down range and ask a Range Safety Officer for assistance.
  • Members are expected to sweep up their brass at the end of their shooting session and deposit it in the spent brass buckets. All used targets, empty ammo boxes, etc. should be disposed of in the trash containers.
  • Cleaning of firearms is to be performed at the designated cleaning table. No ammo is allowed on the cleaning table.
