General Range Rules

Four Main Firearm Safety Rules

  • Treat ALL firearms as if they are loaded at ALL times.
  • Muzzle Awareness:  Always keep the muzzle of your firearm pointed in the safest direction possible.
  • Trigger Finger Discipline:  Keep your trigger finger straight, out of the trigger guard and off the trigger, until you are ready to fire.
  • Know your Backstop:  Always be sure of your target, what is in front of it and what is behind it.

Who is allowed to shoot at Liberty Mountain Gun Club?

  • Liberty Mountain Gun Club is open to current students, faculty, and staff of Liberty University. These individuals are allowed to bring two immediate family members as guests. All participants must pass the firearms safety class. LMGC is not open to the general public or alumni.

What should I expect when I visit Liberty Mountain Gun Club?

  • All patrons must bring their Flames Pass as a form of identification and check in at either the rifle/pistol building or shotgun lodge. During your first visit, you will watch a Safety Video and fill out an Assumption of Risk Form before heading onto any range. Eye and ear protection are required on the ranges while firearms are in use and must be put on before entering that range.

Are there dress requirements at Liberty Mountain Gun Club?

  • Close-toed shoes are required at all times on any of the ranges at LMGC. We also highly recommend you wear a crewneck shirt or a top that fits snugly around your neckline to help prevent hot brass casings from getting inside your clothing.

How do I register for Safety & Concealed Carry Courses?

  • Registration for courses can be found on the LMGC Programs page. The General Firearms Safety Course is a pre-requisite for the other 4 courses offered. Academic courses are also available and can be found in ASIST.

Can I buy ammunition at LMGC?

  • A restricted amount of ammunition is available for use at LMGC only. 9mm, .223, .22, and shotgun ammunition is available. Restrictions are subject to availability due to ammunition shortage. Contact the range via phone for current availability and restrictions.

What firearms are available at LMGC?

  • We offer various rental firearms to be used during your time at LMGC. At the Rifle and Pistol Ranges, we have Ruger 10/22 rifles and Ruger Mark IV 22/45 pistols. At the Shotgun Range, we have Beretta 12 & 20 gauge over-under shotguns.
