Top Gun Shooting Sports requires all visitors to read and acknowledge understanding of our gun range rules. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions if you do not fully understand any of these rules.

Please note: Top Gun Shooting Sports does not accept reservations for our shooting lanes. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If the range is busy and we have a waiting list, we will limit lane use to one (1) hour to accommodate our customers.

When there is no Range Safety Officer on duty inside the range, all shooters are expected to know, follow, and help enforce range rules. If you observe a violation of these range rules, please bring it to the attention of any staff member and we will take corrective action. It is our goal to have a completely safe range for you to enjoy every visit. Thank you for making Top Gun Shooting Sports the safest and friendliest range in the Midwest!

Top Gun Range Rules



    • When finished firing, unload and case your gun prior to leaving the shooting stall.


    • Eye and ear protection must be worn at all times while on the range.


    • Always keep firearms unloaded and keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.


    • If you have a jammed or malfunctioning firearm, place the gun on the bench with the barrel pointed downrange. Then, ask range personnel for assistance. DO NOT BRING THE FIREARM INTO THE RETAIL AREA.


    • Do not hand a loaded firearm to another person. Place the firearm on the shooting bench and allow them to pick the firearm up from the bench.


    • We recommend only one firearm at a time be uncased in the shooting stall to reduce confusion with different ammunition calibers.


    • Commands issued by range staff must be followed immediately. When the command CEASE FIRE is given: STOP SHOOTING immediately and REMOVE your finger from the trigger; keep the gun POINTED DOWN RANGE; WAIT for further instructions from range personnel.


    • Tracer, armor piercing, steel, and military surplus ammo is not allowed on the range. Use only the correct ammunition for your firearm. Factory ammunition is preferred. Hand loaded ammunition must adhere to manufacturer specification. NO HOT LOADS will be permitted. Range personnel may deny the use of non-factory ammo at any time.


    • All shooters under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times on the range. Shooters must be at least 12 (twelve) years of age.


    • Three people maximum are allowed per lane. Other guests must remain in the retail area and can watch on the HD monitors.


    • No one is permitted forward of the firing line at any time.


    • Top Gun reserves the right to deny the use of targets on the range that may be deemed offensive or unsafe.


    • Use the appropriate size target, placed at eye level, to ensure that your shot strikes the backstop and not the floor, ceiling, or target carrier.


    • Shooting at anything other than your own target is prohibited and will subject you to removal from the range.


    • Firing a shot that results in damage to any range equipment may result in a repair fee and your removal from the range.


    • Food, tobacco, and beverages are not allowed on the range. Smoking is strictly prohibited in the range and retail area.


    • Drawing from holsters is prohibited.


    • Use of pistol grip only shotguns is prohibited.


    • Report all violations of range rules to the Range Safety Officer.


    • Top Gun Shooting Sports reserves the right to refuse service to any individual who, in our judgment, would endanger the safety of our staff or patrons. Any unsafe conduct may result in immediate dismissal from the range without refund.


    • Top Gun’s bullet traps are designed to handle handgun and rifle calibers up to 3600 feet per second. Certain calibers of rifles exceed this velocity. If you are unsure if your firearm may be shot on the range, please ask a Range Safety Officer for assistance.


    • The use of Top Gun’s range facility for commercial or training purposes must be approved by range personnel prior to entering the range facility.


    • Be sure your firearm is safe to operate, and know how to use it safely. Please see a Range Safety Officer if you have any questions. Thank You.
