Shooting Range Rules

Every shooter, guardian or observer entering upon the shooting range must follow these rules. This copy is provided for your reference only. To be allowed to shoot at the Parma Armory 21 Gun Salute Range and/or the Parma Armory 5 Star Range®, you must complete an electronic waiver by clicking the link SIGN OUR WAIVER at the bottom right corner of your screen and following its instructions. That waiver is good for one year, so you do not have to do this every time you visit the range.


For persons having a family membership it is the responsibility of the “primary” member to ensure that all family members and guests entering the Parma Armory facility are familiar with these Safety Rules and that they agree to abide by them.
