    Hope you didn't waste too much money there before getting kicked out for teaching your child the right kind of "gun control".

    I believe one of their requirements is for the shooter to take a very basic safety course before being allowed to shoot.

    If your daughter didn't take the course, then they were in the right. You did violate a rule.

    Family members are welcome, but as observers, not shooters.

    Yah, I'm there all the time. If *everyone* on the line has not gone through *thier* safety course, they will absolutely toss you out. I'm an experienced shooter also (30 years) and they made me demostrate safe handling, jam clearing, put a few rounds down range, everything. They have to. A great deal of their business comes from from new shooters and if they let an accident happen, they can get fried.

    You broke the rules.

    And the name of the range is Sunset Hill.
