All shooters must sign-in at the range office (R/P) or club house (Shotgun) prior to using the ranges.

Classes are held in the USI classroom and on our range. Additional information is available at this link: Friedman & Associates Defensive Handgun Training & Education.
In addition, individual clubs do have programs for youth, women, and new shooters (check with each club).

Youth programs for shotgun and rifle are available through the Musketeer’s Program.

Q: What training do I need before I can shoot at your range?
A: New shooters using the rifle and pistol range receive a “safety orientation” prior to using the range, and will be required to demonstrate firearm safety. A “purple card” will be issued to show you have successfully met the requirements. The “safety orientation” is available when you sign-in. New shotgun shooters must read and understand the rules posted on each field, and will be monitored by the Range Safety Officer.
Q: Does USI have food and beverages available?
