Quick Jump:


The program is designed for all youths ages 9 to 18. Only Rimfire, magazine fed, rifles and pistols are allowed.

Each participant must complete a Metal Madness Rifle Safety and Firearm Training class and will receive a certificate upon completion. A second safety/firearms training class is required for Pistol Certification. The pistol class is restricted to ages 12 to 18.

Instructors will be available on a scheduled basis. Participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants are encouraged to furnish their own firearms, however range rifles and pistols will be available for use. Participants are required to furnish ammo. Ammo will be available at the range for purchase at a reduced price.

Education will be given and all firearms safety and range rules will be strictly enforced!


Metal Madness Puts Safety First!

The only time a firearm is loaded and charged is when the player is shooting. No firearm can be loaded until every player is in place on the firing line and the command to make your firearm ready is given.

When the firearm is made ready the player can not handle the firearm until it is their turn to shoot. When the player finishes shooting their lane or changes lanes: the firearm is unloaded, flagged (a small bright plastic piece that shows the firearm is unloaded), and placed on the deck pointing downrange in their lane, or pointed up while changing lanes.
