    I'll see if I can come out there, was planning on taking the lady on tuesday (ladies night!). Wish I had a rear sight on my AR so I could unload a brick of .22 on those zombies.

    It's not. I was very displeased with with champion arms today. We ended up shooting at west coast armory. Very friendly place for military.

    Short version:: since I'm on my phone,
    They would not let green, or my friend (who is active military) shoot hand guns at champion arms because they are not 21, even though they both had someone over 21 with them. I expecte more friendly service, they told us that every range would be like this, yet we had no issues at armory....

    That sounds super stupid. 6 year-olds shoot at my local range with adult supervision. 18 year-olds should not be prohibited from shooting handguns. The fact that one is active military makes it worse. Did they cite a law or just say it was policy?

    It is clearly stated as policy here.

    I
    will look into changing this with the owner.

    Glad to hear that. What's the reasoning behind the policy?

    No issue at the "pit". My son (14) shoots my 9mm Taurus, AK-47, 12 GA shot gun, and basically anything he wants. BTW he smoked my when shooting clays (I want to kill him!) LOL. It's some of those issues that keep me going to the gravel pits, also those indoor ranges really frown on tanerite.

    I love pits. Haven't been to champ (any range businesses) in a while. Only came because of this short notice thread and to get some time with my piece and paper.

    Champion Arms Policy: http://www.championarms.com/Policies.htm

    Use of the Range

    You may bring your own ammo so long as you use your own firearms. If you rent our firearms, you must purchase our ammo. Your safety and the safety of other shooters is our greatest priority at Champion Arms. Using our ammo in our rental guns eliminates the possibility of a catastrophic failure of a firearm when otherwise, shooters bring their own hand-loaded ammo that is loaded beyond standard pressure limits for a given caliber.
    *You must be 21 years of age or accompanied by a parent if under 21 in order to shoot a handgun on our range.
    *You must be 21 years of age to rent a range pistol. This includes members of the military.
    *The minimum age for renting a long gun (rifle) at our range is 18.
    *The minimum age for shooting a long gun (rifle) at our range is 18 unless accompanied by a parent.
    *Children accompanied by a parent must be at least 7 years of age.

    It was nice meeting you as well green. I'm sorry that happened man. West Coast Armory let's you shoot all guns at 18. Justman and I ended up going there. It was also nice to meet Moose. To bad we didn't get to shoot the 500 he bought ammo for. Oh well.
