This is determined by our staff running your ammunition past a magnet to see if the bullet shows any signs of magnetism. Lead, or lead coated in a copper jacket will not. Steel and other metals not allowed will. (This means NO M855 green tip)
Our ranges are outfitted with steel plated backstops with running water to contain lead dust particulate. If steel penetrators or any other harder metal impacts with our backstop’s steel, it will damage the backstop plates by leaving large craters. This is very costly to fix and replace. We will check your ammunition prior to shooting and may spot check if we see indications of steel projectiles being used.
Please, double check your ammo and insure you aren’t shooting our backstops with any ammunition we don’t allow. Help us keep our range open and available to everyone in the shooting community!
However, we require that you use a brass catcher or similar device to do so. We understand that many shooters also enjoy the art of reloading and we fully support this. The issue is we have had many safety violations of individuals chasing brass on the floor and even crossing the red safety line. This issue is reflected in our insurance policy as well. Due to this, once the brass casing touches the floor it may be swept forward of the red safety firing line to keep the range safe and clear of tripping hazards.
We also have a selection of targets which you can purchase here. In addition, we provide cardboard target backers and tape located on the range for you to use.
We allow rifle calibers up to .30-06 on our range. This includes your AR-15, AR-10, M1A, M1 Garand, etc. If you have some obscure caliber you would like to shoot, please give us a call to double check if you’re uncertain. Again, just ensure your ammunition has no steel core. 7.62×39 and 7.62x54r shooters be aware most surplus ammo produced for you has steel.
But only if you are firing slugs, 00,000 or 4 Buck. We do not allow any other type of shotgun round to be fired on the range.
Just be courteous and please warn your shooting lane neighbor.
Just be sure to bring your tax stamps with the items. Please let our RSO on duty know what’s going on, follow our ammunition restrictions, and demonstrate full control over the firearm. Just keep in mind you will be responsible for any damages to the facility.
Each permit holder may bring 1 individual who does not possess a permit.
Thanks for your service!
You will be required to have an instructor on the range with you while you shoot. This costs $50 for a half hour or $100 for an hour. (This INCLUDES the range time fee) This isn’t a baby sitter you’re paying for, you will receive a great lesson and some top-quality instruction by our training staff throughout! You can sign up directly on our website or email Bryce@deltaarsenal.com for more information.
Consider taking an hour private lesson with one of our instructors. This way you will be shooting on a private range in a comfortable environment and going at your own pace. Our instructors are very experienced in assisting new shooters and you will be getting great value from your money. You will leave feeling more confident, shooting more accurately, and have a better understanding and feel of your firearm. Take that initial NRA class a step further and feel comfortable with being able to use a firearm safely, accurately and reliably.
You can sign up directly on our website or email Bryce@deltaarsenal.com for more information.
If you took your class here at Delta Arsenal and our records can confirm this, then yes you may use the range and hopefully take advantage of your beginner’s membership!
If you did not take the required NRA course with us, then unfortunately you will need to come with a friend who has their permit or pay for an instructor.
We ask that children from 12 to 16 years old only fire .22lr from a rifle and be under direct supervision of the permit holding parent or legal guardian at all times. A parent or legal guardian will be required to sign a waiver for anyone under the age of 18.
Children under 12 may shoot at our range with a parental guardian by appointment only. 1 child is allowed per permit holding parental guardian / accompanying permit holding adult.
We operate on a first come first serve basis. Once you arrive and are taken care of at our range counter, if there is any wait you will be placed in order and called when a lane opens.
We have multiple indoor ranges at our facility and typically have 18 shooting lanes open to the public at any given time. This means a relatively quick turnaround time if the case arises where you must wait. Typically, we are a little busier on the weekends in comparison to during the week. Most of the time there is no wait to get a lane on the range.
Please make arrangements by emailing Bryce@deltaarsenal.com prior to showing up so we can properly accommodate you and your party. Also, consider renting a Full Automatic Machine Gun while you’re here! It’s a great experience which you won’t soon forget.
Please call (203) 265-0121 or email Sales@deltaarsenal.com and ask about the current NRA Instructor programs and rates we offer.
