United Sportsmen Inc. requires all members and guests visiting our range to have a signed “Liability Waiver” on file prior to being allowed to use our ranges. The waivers are available on-line (link below) allowing you to complete the waivers prior to arriving at the range. Tablets are also available for you to sign-up at the range office. The waiver is required for all Adults and Minors.
Prior to reviewing and signing the waiver, customers are required to watch the safety briefing and familiarization videos so you will know what to expect when you come to the range. Additionally, there will be a short quiz at the end of the waiver covering the content of the videos and our range rules.
When you arrive at the range you will be issued a new U.S.I. Range Card after we have verified completion of your waiver. This card will replace the older “Yellow”, “Blue” and “Purple” cards for all activities. The different waivers for Skeet/Trap and Rifle/Pistol will be tracked within our systems. If you plan to shoot both, please review and sign both waivers.
The “Liability Waiver” is a bi-annual requirement. “Liability Waivers” for minors MUST be completed and signed by a Parent or Legal Guardian ONLY.
