Buffalo Range Shooting Park Supports Concealed Carry

Last Updated : 08-12-2014 01:06
We allow our customers to carry concealed on range property. However, shooters on the line are not allowed to draw from concealment. Please make sure to read out recent changes on our range rule books online and in the range office. We would like our shooters to know that we have and always will support concealed carry. Safety is our #1 concern on our range, therefore we cannot allow drawing from concealment on the firing line. If you would like to draw from concealment, please take one of our defensive pistol classes we offer at the range.
