Everyone must also sign a liability waiver prior to utilizing any GRSS facility or range. Those applying for membership agree to have a background check run.  Active Law Enforcement and members already in possession of a valid LTC/CHL license will be exempted from further background checks. Applicants may also furnish proof of a recent firearm purchase to satisfy background compliance. It is the policy of GRSS to accept applications for membership from any individual, couple, or business that meets the requirements established by GRSS, without regard to age, race, color, creed, gender, religion, or national origin, nor shall such matters ever be made a condition of Membership. No application for Membership shall be effective until the application is completed and signed by the primary member and submitted to GRSS with the required membership fee. Once the application is accepted and approved, the member must then complete the orientation and Acting Range Safety Officer class. GRSS reserves the right to approve or reject any membership application.

Range Safety Officers will not always be present during normal business days. When RSO’s are present, they have final say over range operation. Anytime there is a class or large shooting event, RSO’s will be present. When RSO’s are not present and multiple members are shooting on the same range, members must collaborate with each other for the purpose of safety concerns. 

• Moving and shooting drills, competitions and multi-gun stages must be approved by GRSS staff and may require approved RSO’s. 

• GRSS staff will post whether the ranges will be run hot or cold during classes and shooting events. 

• Walk-Ins (general public) will Not be allowed unless a scheduled, open event is in progress.  

• Members will be notified, either by e-mail, text, or website of all upcoming classes, shooting events and facility rentals for planning and attendance purposes. All communications between you and GRSS will be by e-mail or personal delivery. Accordingly, you must maintain a valid  e-mail account and update GRSS with any changes.

• At this time GRSS will not have daily liability insurance but will have special event coverage for any large events held.
