Renewal of Previous Waiver
Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette
Effective Nov 13, 2019 - No Fees collected for waiver completion!
Section 1: Who may shoot - In accordance with Iowa state law
1. Under Iowa Law, children 17 and younger may shoot long guns with the permission of a parent, guardian, spouse who is eighteen years of age or older, or another with the express consent of the minor’s parent or guardian or spouse who is eighteen years of age or older. CrossRoads requires direct supervision of minors who possess or use rifles or shotguns at our facility by a duly authorized adult as specified and expressly consented to in this waiver.
2. Individuals UNDER the age of 21 who desire to possess or shoot a pistol or revolver, or the ammunition therefore, MUST (with one exception listed below) be under the direct supervision of a parent, guardian, spouse, or instructor who is twenty-one years of age or older, who maintains a physical presence near the supervised person conducive to hands-on instruction, and who maintains visual and verbal contact at all times with the supervised person. The law, common sense and CrossRoads Shooting Sports also require that the supervising adult may not be intoxicated or under the influence of an illegal drug.
At any time that a minor under the age of 18 is shooting or in possession of a handgun at CrossRoads, that minor MUST be directly supervised by an authorized adult over the age of 21. That supervising adult must direct full attention to the minor and will not be permitted to shoot in another lane while the minor is shooting or in possession of a handgun. CrossRoads requires that an adult supervise the possession and use of a handgun by only ONE minor at a time. If two or more minors are accompanied by a single adult, they will be required to take turns in the possession and use of a handgun and may not shoot simultaneously.
The sole exception to the above rule for the possession and use of a pistol or revolver or the ammunition therefore is that a person eighteen, nineteen, or twenty years of age who is on military duty or who is serving as while a peace officer, security guard or correctional officer, may possess a firearm and the ammunition therefor when such duty requires the possession of such a weapon or while the person receives instruction in the proper use there of from an instructor who is twenty-one years of age or older. (For example, a Deputy Sheriff under the age of 21, may shoot handguns at CrossRoads ONLY while on duty or while receiving instruction from an instructor who is 21 or older.)
3. Individuals 18 and older will be permitted to shoot a long gun alone.
4. CrossRoads is a family-friendly facility, but we ask that you not leave your children unattended while you shoot in the range. Also, no minor shall be allowed to possess a firearm, whether or not loaded, at any time without direct supervision of an adult.
5. Because of the potential for lead and heavy metals to be tracked out of the range, please do not let your children crawl on the floor at CrossRoads.
Section 2: General Range Conduct
6. Never consume alcohol or take drugs before or while shooting. CrossRoads reserves the right to refuse range access if we suspect you may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
7. If you carry concealed, please keep it concealed and in the holster until you are in the shooting stall.
8. Eye and ear protection is mandatory when in the shooting range. Please put them on in the store BEFORE entering the range.
9. Only uncase your firearm in the shooting stall, and do not transfer uncased firearms from lane to lane.
10. DO NOT handle or load firearms anywhere but on the firing line in your assigned stall. It is okay to load magazines in the ready area.
11. Multiple guns are permitted on the bench, always keep the action open, magazines removed.
12. Only one firearm may be loaded at a time. Firearms NOT on the firing line must be stored unloaded, and in a case.
13. Targets must be at least 5 yards downrange, long guns must shoot at targets at least 20 yards downrange.
14. Unless being assisted by another person, shooters must stand in their respective shooting booth and non-shooters must stand in the ready area.
15. Do not transfer control of a firearm directly from one person to another person. Place the unloaded firearm on the
bench pointed downrange and allow the next person to pick it up.
16. All shooting must be conducted in a safe, controlled and accurate manner; dual wielding or two-gun shooting is not permitted.
17. NO Rapid Fire without express prior approval by Range Staff. Rapid fire is defined as a rate of ammunition discharged from a firearm that could be deemed uncontrolled, inaccurate or in such a large pattern as to be missing the intended target completely.
18. Range Safety Officer reserves the right to remove anyone from the range that is demonstrating unsafe or unacceptable behavior.
19. Upon the command CEASE FIRE, stop all shooting immediately, drop the magazine, lock the slide back, put down your firearm and back away from the firing line. Shooters may not re-approach the firing line or pick up any firearm until a Range Safety Officer gives the, "range hot" command.
20. You are not allowed to draw from a holster and fire. No prone shooting.
21. Food, drink, gum or any tobacco product is not permitted inside the range. Always remember to wash your hands in cold water with D-Lead soap after you leave the range and prior to eating.
22. If you observe any unsafe conditions, report them to a Range Safety Officer immediately. Remember, anyone can call a cease fire.
23. Damage to any part of range due to neglect of the customer, could result in the customer paying for the damage.
24. Because CrossRoads values our customers safety at all times, please notify a Range Safety Officer if you sustain an injury.
25. If you are bleeding, have someone else notify the RSO and an employee will come to you to administer first aid.
Section 3: Ammunition and Firearms
26. Range Safety Officers reserve the right to inspect any firearms or ammunition for safety considerations.
27. No green tip, steel core, armor piercing, tracers, or hand loaded ammunition allowed. NO RELOADS.
28. No bird or buckshot through shotguns or .410 loads in revolvers. SLUGS ONLY.
29. Rifle calibers up to standard .308 (7.62 x 51) are acceptable.
30. Throwing weapons are prohibited at CrossRoads, including, but not limited to: ninja stars, tomahawks, ballistic knives and throwing knives.
31. Re-loaders may recover their own brass from the range provided it is not forward of the firing line. Brass previously left on the range by other shooters is the property of CrossRoads Shooting Sports, LLC, and is not permitted to be removed.
32. All firearms MUST be in proper working order when used on the range. Including, but not limited to, functional weapon sights.
33. The used of "bump-fire" or "rapid-fire" stocks in the range is prohibited.
