Sandals, flip-flops or high-heels shoes are not recommended
You are moving across a lot of loose brass. Boots with ankle support is a good idea

Hot brass down your shirt is not fun!
Keeps flying brass off your face
Range ventilation does not allow for effective A/C or Heat. Inside the range can be hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Make sure you are dressing for the weather to stay comfortable. Long sleeves and/or jackets are recommended during the cold months.
We operate on a safety first program. Please review and understand these basic NRA Firearm Safety Rules.
Trigger Finger Safety
Your finger does not touch the trigger until you have made the conscious decision to fire your weapon. During movement drills, practice trigger finger safety while moving and until you have obtained a proper sight picture.
Never allow your muzzle to cover something or someone you are not willing to destroy. In a range setting, the safest place to point your firearms is down range, towards to rubber backstop.
Treat every firearm as though it is loaded
If a firearm is in your control, treat it as if it were loaded, regardless of the actual condition. Obey rules #1 and #2 even if you know the weapon is unloaded.
Identify your target and what is beyond your target.
At the range, know which target you are shooting at and know what is beyond your target. Make sure there is rubber backstop behind your target before you shoot. Do not shoot into walls or the ceiling.
CCW Holders must identify your target, identify the threat and what is beyond your target. If firing your weapon in a self defense situation, you are responsible for every round that leaves your firearm. Know what is beyond your target before you shoot.
Obey these 4 safety rules at all times while handling your firearms, whether at the range, at home or in a self defense situation.
