Why can I only shoot brass on the range and not aluminum or steel casings?
Many people do not understand why only brass cased ammunition is allowed. Our air ventilation system is a very expensive component to the range and is tied directly to our recycled materials and hazardous materials handling. These casings, by the nature of what they are and do, have lead dust on them. In order to keep that dust contained, we do not allow shooters to go beyond the firing line to collect brass. To that end, it builds up and must be pushed by the RSO (Range Safety Officer) into our reclamation process. If there is any contamination from other casings, we cannot recycle it and we cannot merely discard it because of the lead.
It is also extremely cost prohibitive for us to attempt to sort casings. By law we are responsible and liable for the lead contamination containment and we do not want to risk the health of our staff or their time in doing so. Therefore, we must only have brass for everyone’s health and to keep range management costs at a minimum. Further, steel core rounds, tracer rounds or materials other than lead do a tremendous amount of damage to the range. Our costs in maintaining the range are very high because your health and your budget is important to our commitment to excellence so we appreciate your understanding of this policy.
Why are you open on Sunday when you are a Christian company?
When Frontier Justice first opened, we were closed on Sundays. However, we heard from many of our friends and family that Sunday was their only day to patronize our store given that Saturday was consumed with sports, chores, etc. To accommodate our clients, without compromising our Christian values, we have opted to open at noon on Sundays (after most churches dismiss) and close at 6 p.m. so our staff can enjoy an evening of rest with their families.
What do I need to bring with me to shoot on the range?
Guests must have at least 1 ID (ex. Drivers License, Military ID) per lane to use the range. Guests will also need eye protection, ear protection and at least one target, all of which are available to borrow or purchase from Range Check-In. Closed-toed shoes are required, but booties are available for guests who only have open-toed shoes.
Do I need a membership to shoot on the range?
No, you do not. Non-members may use our range for a fee of $17.00 for 1 shooter and $27.00 for 2 shooters (per lane). This is for unlimited time unless there is a wait for lanes. If a wait list builds, you may be asked to release the lane after one hour, but may return to another lane if one becomes available that same day.
Can I use my own ammo?
You may use your own ammunition as long as it meets our range requirements. It must be all brass ammunition; no aluminum cased, steel cased, steel core, steel shot, tracer or armor piercing ammunition is allowed. No muzzle-loaders or black powder. Only slugs are allowed for Shot Guns – no birdshot or buckshot is allowed. When renting firearms from Frontier Justice, you must purchase our ammunition specified.
Do I need prior shooting experience to shoot on the range?
No, you do not. We have Range Safety Officers available to help out first-time shooters and keep everyone in the range safe. However, if a lesson is what you need/desire, we recommend you start with a class as the RSO on duty will have limited time to assist.
Can I collect my brass?
You are welcome to collect all of your brass behind the firing line. No brass beyond the firing line may be collected.
What calibers can I shoot on the range?
Anything up to a .50 caliber is permitted.

What are the blue mats outside the range doors for?
These are sticky mats to collect any lead that you may have on the bottom of your shoes.
Can my child shoot on the range with me?
Children 8 years and older AND at least 48 inches tall may shoot on the range as long as they have a parent or guardian with them.
Can I carry my firearm in Frontier Justice?
Yes, you may, but it must be holstered or in a case at all times in the store. If you do not have a case, we have “loaner” cases that you may use on a stand at the front door.
I was on the wait list for an hour when someone who was in line after me got a lane before me. Why would that happen?
One of our membership benefits is being the priority on the wait list. This means that if the range is full and we are on a wait list, members will get on the range before non-members.
Can I get private instruction with my firearm?
Yes, you may. Private lessons are $75.00 per hour and may be scheduled ahead of time by phone or email.
Who can I have on my family membership package?
Anyone can be added to a family membership as long as they are 18 years or older and are able to shoot on the range by themselves. Families may have up to 4 members on their account.
Why do you not sell the AK47 rifle or any AK47 accessories in your stores?
Frontier Justice has no opinion on anyone owning or using an AK47. The rifle is not a part of our in-store selection for one reason. It is the rifle that has been used to kill more American soldiers than any other firearm. It has been the rifle of our enemy in almost every engagement from Vietnam to the Middle East. Not carrying them in-store is merely a nod of respect to the founder’s uncle, affectionately referred to as Poppy, who did several tours in Vietnam as a Green Beret. Poppy taught our family most of what we know about firearms and the shooting sports and as a symbol of respect, the firearms are not physically present in-store. We support everyone’s right to own the firearms they choose. Please respect our product mix in-store as just a sweet sign of respect for a man who has served his country but also this family in ways that deserve a nod of recognition. It’s just personal to us, not a commentary on what you should own or not own or the merits of that particular firearm. Of course, we are pro 2A. We are a gun store! There are a few things we want to put in our private business that are meaningful to us. And that is exactly the freedom that Poppy served, sacrificed, and fought for – the ability to be Free and exercise our own choices.
May I buy a firearm as a gift for my spouse?
When purchasing a firearm as a gift, we will put the exact amount of the firearm (tax included) on a gift card and the recipient may come into our store and purchase the firearm themselves with their gift card.
It is, however, completely legal to purchase a gift of a firearm for someone. You purchase it and then you are responsible for where it is gifted.
