    Just wondering. Every range has their own particular specific rules. Just wondering what you've run across in your neck of the woods. The rules are for the safety but really shows the history of the range too.

    Just a few I've come across and why.

    Rule: Can't rent a gun by yourself (Wade's in Bellevue)
    Why: Had a guy use it in the bathroom and did himself in.

    Rule: Can't rent a gun without showing a gun (A gun range near Portland)
    Why: Pretty much the same reason as Wade's

    Rule: Can't have a cell phone on (Champion Arms in Kent)
    Why: Concerned you'll be called and forget your holding a gun and shoot someone trying to answer it.

    Overall, this is not an unfamiliar rule at most ranges. Heck, people can't even keep it on target.

    Wade's (Bellevue) is the only one you can shoot like a madman, so long, as you can keep it on target.

    Down at Bullseye (Tacoma) you can shoot pretty fast too. Champion Arms (Kent) you can't.

    Renton Fish and Game will let you do double taps but again, so long, as you can keep them on the berm.

    Oh, for rifles you can only have 1 round in the chamber - can't have any of those fly out of the range by an accidental discharge - too many houses close by.

    At the Issaquah Sportmen's Club you can only have 10rds loaded in a mag.

    Any place that sells Wolf ammo and says "no Wolf ammo on the range." Seems pretty strange to me at least...and I know why they do and I still think it's strange.

    they're usually steel cased. a lot of places won't let you shoot aluminum (blazer) or steel cased ammo. The explanation I heard from one place is that they resell the brass, and they don't like going through and picking out the aluminum and steel ones

    Yes.

    Those guys should rethink that one, considering the price of metal. You would think that they would want more customers over bad ammunition.
    Bad call.

    I've only shot at Wades a couple of times, it was ok but did seem like there were some crackheads in there. I usually shoot up at Sams in South Everett, used to be able to shoot rifle indoors but not anymore. Not too many stupid rules there, you can rapid fire, rent guns etc... all the jazz.

    I've heard of no keeping brass. Seems odd when it's worth something and you already paid for it.

    I was picking up my nicer brass when I went there. The range marshal was standing right there and didn't care
