Questions
 2. Can I bring a Guest to the Range?   NO.      NO GUESTS are ALLOWED.     ONLY PAID MEMBERS are Allowed to shoot (see #1 above).
​.
If you bring a friend - complete #1 above - movies, dinner theaters, & theme parks aren't free - neither is ProTEQ.

  Multiple variations of Guest Discount Programs have failed YEAR after YEAR.   NONE have proved beneficial to ProTEQ.
      Each attempt at a Guest Discount Program has lost money for... and imposed risk upon.... ProTEQ. 
         Every Adult (person age 18 and older) is REQUIRED to Join as a Member before shooting on ANY Range (see #1 above).
            Standard Membership ($25 West Valley Fee) on a completed Range Release is required in FULL before shooting here (see #1 above).

​ 5. When does my Fully PAID Current Year Range Release Expire?    
ALL PAST & CURRENT YEAR Range Releases EXPIRE on DECEMBER 31st of EVERY year  - NO EXCEPTIONS ​!!!

  Your Range Release can also be VOIDED if you break the rules and get ordered off the property.    These are the most common causes: 
​ 1. Safety violations; - especially muzzle sweep, loading behind the firing line, repeat offenses....LEARN or LEAVE.
 2. Disrespectful Behavior; - especially failure to pick up fired cases or take down paper targets.....BE SAFE & CLEAN UP. 
​ 3. THEFT; - stealing brass, pop, money, membership, or whatever.... I utilize the double "EE" concept...EDUCATE or ELIMINATE.  
4. Destructiveness; - willfully, purposefully, or ignorantly destroying berms, backboards, posts, metal plates, structures, etc....You are BANNED.

Learn the RULES and the RESTRICTIONS... ignorance of them is NO EXCUSE nor will it reduce your punishment.

"A Target of Opportunity"       OMAR would advise..."don't become one"

​ 3. When does the range OPEN - generally 7 days a week - 8:00AM 
    When does the range CLOSE - every day - 8:00PM or SUNSET - Which Ever occurs FIRST

      SUMMER - 8:00PM - from Mid March through Mid September  
    WINTER - SUNSET - from Mid September through Mid March              

 The West Valley Range is OPEN nearly every day, occasionally it might be closed for repairs, special training, or hunting.

 Be sure to check before driving to the range,... there is NO guarantee that the Range will be open when you arrive.
