Its a public indoor range. Just kind of caught me off guard. I should have asked first. Thanks for all the info. On another note....picking up my para 1911 today. Oh happy day! Bet I don't go to that range though! Lol

I wouldn't shoot at any range that wanted to swipe or hold my DL. If they wanted to see an ID I'd show them my DoD ID, but that's all. Show them and then put it back in my wallet.

I'd hazard a guess that to get the most accurate information about why they want ID, is go directly to the source. Actually ask the range why this is necessary!
On another note, if they are recording the information, for example a hand written log and that information is available to anyone, including employees, without any reason to need said information, then its a violation of the HIPPA law. Your personal information can not be released to anyone without your permission.

we require a signed waiver of liability from non members on public days. that's to cover us. we don't ask for an ID unless you want to rent a spotting scope - then we keep the DL until the scope comes back.

I am SO GLAD I don't live in Cali. If I did, I'd move. Immediately.

leave the cannoli - take the gun

I just shot at the Colorado State IDPA Championships. They made us all sign a waiver. But I was never asked for my ID.

The city range does not scan or even look at licenses, period.

I love my wife, she purchases for anniversary or Christmas present an annual pass at the city range for $100.

The daily fee is $6.00, so in the long run the annual pass pays for itself.

I was at a private gun club yesterday and they did the same thing. This range was as high tech as an outhouse. They gave me a lanyard and a badge in exchange for my license. This compound has 8 ranges on it spanning across a hillside. I think they do it for accountability. Also you have to be a NRA member to shoot there. I doubt they would try some BS. The office had a fridge, microwave, and a desk. No computer or any electronics around. I don't fell like they are scamming me or anything

The local ranges in Ohio keep your DL's while you are shooting and return them when you leave the range.


Keep calm, carry on
