Please understand that as we progress with development of the range, membership management will fluctuate. It will always be moving towards you getting more, but please be flexible. It is for this reason that we are giving the early members supporting us 2 years for the price of one, to offset any inconvenience they may experience as we grow and offer more benefits and make our process for members more efficient.
General Membership Rules
- A valid Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit, law enforcement commission, valid military ID, TWIC card, or valid federal firearms license, will serve as proof of a background check. Otherwise, we will run a full criminal background. We are only looking for those charges that would exclude a person from purchasing a firearm (most felonies).
- No member gets a membership card or is allowed to shoot until completing the orientation and qualifying on the range they intend to use. There will be a pistol, shotgun, carbine, 500 yard, and 1000 yard, and full-auto qualification. Once you have completed the qualification, you are certified unless range staff feels the need for a refresher due to your behavior on the range. This is 100% at the discretion of range staff.
- We intend to have a very liberal allowance of behavior as long as it is safe. That means you will be able to utilize movement, drawing from the holster, utilize cover, shoot on steel targets, and other things not traditionally allowed at some other ranges.
- The SUPREME RULE of the range property is REMAIN SAFE. For the most part, you will be able to do any reasonable activity that is safe in context and does not destroy property. Ultimately, range staff makes the call.
The primary purpose of the NOLATAC Training Center is to provide TRAINING for law enforcement, military, and responsible armed citizens. As such, there may be times where the range as a whole or particular assets of the range are not available to members because they are being utilized for other scheduled events. The NOLATAC Training Center reserves the right to limit availability at its sole discretion. Every effort will be made to communicate BLACKOUT DATES to members via the FaceBook Page, Website, emails, and other means. As the range grows over the next year, this will become less and less of an issue as we have multiple bays available for member-only use.
