Beginners at the gun range may need a few tips before picking up a firearm. However Everyone must follow the Four Basic Rules of Firearm Safety at all times. Just like rules of the road, there are unspoken rules of etiquette at the indoor shooting range.

Stone Hart’s Gun Club & Indoor Range Rules

At Stone Hart’s Gun Club & Indoor Range, we pride ourselves on being one of the few family oriented shootings ranges in the Miami area. We want our patrons to come and enjoy themselves in an air-conditioned environment with high standards of air quality and safety, therefore, we demand everyone to uphold the following range guidelines.

  • Children must be at least 8 years old to shoot.
  • Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who will sign a waiver and stay with them at all times
  • Follow the Range Officer’s commands at all times.
  • Ear and eye protection is mandatory before entering the range and while at the shooting range.
  • Treat every firearm as if it were loaded.

  • Act responsibly at all times.
  • Outside instructors working with students in the range must be licensed and have proper insurance endorsed to Stone Hart’s.  See management for details.

In addition, Stone Hart’s Gun Club and Indoor Range allows qualified shooters to practice “rapid” fire and holster draws from approved holsters. We respectfully request that any shooters wanting to participate in these activities first qualify for a “Red/Green Code” (Rapid Fire Only) or full “Green Code” (Rapid Fire and Holster Draw) evaluation. This evaluation is only required once. Each evaluation will have a nominal fee of $10.00 for Red/Green Code or $15.00 for Green Code. To see sample evaluation checklists, click on the below links:
