It makes the event go faster if you show up with a minimum of five magazines.
You can shoot any gun & caliber from .22 to .45, so long as it will not damage our steel, as determined by the MD.
A holster is preferred and may be used if you show proficiency in using it, however, it is not mandatory.
We run a "COLD RANGE" during the event, so DO NOT show up with a loaded firearm.
COLD RANGE: A “Cold Range” is defined as a range where all firearms must be unloaded unless under the direct supervision of a SO.
