It is understood that I am personally responsible for the safe handling and proper functioning of any firearm or munitions that I bring into the training environment. Iron Sights Training Academy, LLC (ISTA), other participating service providers, and the range (along with all its owners, stakeholders, and associates) have no responsibility to guarantee, verify, or approve of the safety and functioning of firearms, ammunition, or other items.

I understand the terms herein are contractual and not mere recital, and I have signed this document voluntarily and of my own free will. I further affirm that I have not been at any time restricted from access to firearms.

Firearms shall be promptly holstered or otherwise appropriately stored after use in training. Upon recognizing any potentially unsafe condition, the undersigned agrees to immediately stop shooting, place their firearm in a safe orientation and bring the condition to the attention of the instructor.


In consideration of the opportunity to participate in, or observe training from ISTA, the undersigned agrees to assume responsibility for his or her own actions, along with all personal risk involved in participation. The undersigned personally assumes all risks in connection with ISTA, whether foreseen or unforeseen. Further, the undersigned assumes responsibility and liability, for themselves, their family, their guests, and their legal heirs and assigns. All of the aforementioned parties do hereby release and hold harmless Iron Sights Training Academy, LLC, the range and officers (of ISTA, the range, and other participating entities), directors, agents, and employees from any harm, death, or other damages to themselves, property, or others, which may arise while engaged in the use of facilities, services, or equipment.


I further agree and affirm that I and my family and other dependents do and will hold harmless, Iron Sights Training Academy, LLC, its instructors, officers, officials and any and all course or event sponsors, and any and all persons involved in organizing and conducting training or events, for any injury or damage which might be incurred during the course of such training or events.

I also agree to indemnify and hold harmless the parties listed in the last statement from against all costs, counsel fees, expenses, and liabilities incurred in and about such claims, investigations thereof of the defense of any action or proceeding brought thereon and from any orders, judgments and/or decrees which may be entered therein.


I further certify that I am not under the influence of alcohol or drugs and that it is legal for me to be in possession of a firearm. Additionally, I certify that I am of sound body and mind at the time of my entry into this agreement, and during my time in training.

Training Rules

1.   Treat all firearms as if they are loaded.

2.   ALWAYS keep firearms pointed in a safe direction and away from any persons, areas in which a person might be, and away from any wildlife.

3.   ALWAYS keep your finger straight and outside the trigger guard until you are on target and have made the decision to shoot, and an instructor has told you to do so.

4.   Be sure of your target and its foreground and background. Ensure that rounds will not cause harm on their way to the target, or once they have penetrated the target. (Keep rounds on the appropriate backstop, and make sure the round stays on the backstop when it leaves the target by using the appropriate angle of shooting).

5.   Understand it is NOT always safe to point a firearm downrange.

6.   ALL range commands should be repeated loudly.

7.   The STUDENT is responsible for notifying an instructor IMMEDIATELY if any unsafe or potentially unsafe condition is observed.

8.   Act at all times in a reasonable and safe manner. These rules do not take the place of good judgement and prudent actions.

9.   Be courteous to all shooters.

10. Keep all cell phones at all times on silent.

11.  If an unsafe condition is observed, immediately stop what you are doing and call “Cease Fire”. Inform your instructor and other safety officers immediately.

12.  Keep handguns in the holster or secure case at all times unless on the firing line and the appropriate command has been given by the instructor.

13.  DO NOT manipulate firearms unless on the firing line and the appropriate command has been given by the instructor.

14.  If reloading off of the firing line, ensure to perform ONLY a range/administrative reload (reload where the magazine is removed from the firearm WITHOUT removing the firearm from the holster).

15.  The STUDENT is responsible for EVERY round they fire.

The following are strictly prohibited:

1.      Shooting at people.

2.      Shooting at wildlife.

3.      Shooting anywhere except downrange (at the backstop) when the appropriate command has been given.

4.      Shooting across range.

5.      Shooting when the command to shoot has not been given.

6.      Shooting once the cease fire command has been given.

7.      Consumption of alcoholic beverages or drugs (including prescription and over the counter medications) which may affect the student’s ability to participate with a maximum state of awareness and in a completely safe manner, before or during live fire activities. The Range Officer may deny range access to anyone that is or appears to be in violation of these provisions.



10.  50 BMG CALIBER FIREARMS ARE PROHIBITED without written authorization from the lead instructor.


12.  No bullet impacts off the range, into buildings, signs, storage containers, sheds, or any other structure or range feature other than in the shooters approved impact area.

13.  No disruptive activities, such as loud music or persons who are not training or not properly supervised on the firing line.

14.  No firearms are to be loaded unless the student is on the Firing Line for the purpose of training after express permission has been given by the instructor.
