*All range rules are subject to change without notice.
Yes, children 10 years of age or older are permitted on the range as long as they can demonstrate safe handling of the firearm and are accompanied and closely monitored by their parent or legal guardian. For the comfortable enjoyment and safety of all, children MUST be within “arm’s reach” of the accompanying adult at ALL times while on Saddle River property and not just on the firing ranges. Our goal is to make Saddle River the most family friendly firearms and archery range in the Country. With this lofty goal and commitment comes responsibility from both parents and our youth alike. Our Saddle River staff reserves the right to ask anyone to leave for not adhering to all safety procedures or not following the arms reach rule.
Only Members may reserve shooting lanes. We cannot reserve lanes for non-members or guests of members. Each member may reserve only one lane, however, if space is available we are happy to issue separate lanes at the time of check in. Lane reservations will be held for 15 minutes but the hour time limit (if applicable) will begin at the time of the reservation. If the reservation is not filled within that time frame, it will be released. Reserving specific lanes or adjacent lanes is a request we will accommodate when possible – however it is not guaranteed. Reservations are subject to availability based on membership level and are on a first come first serve basis.
