Shooting ranges and rod and gun clubs enable gun owners to become proficient with their firearms. They’re ideal for hunters, law enforcement professionals, and others who want to practice with their weapons in a safe, controlled indoor or outdoor environment. But these facilities pose liability issues that can jeopardize owners’ and operators’ financial health.
Shooting ranges are a prime target for lawsuits because of their inherent liability risk. The obvious risks are injuries and death caused by misfires but there are plenty of other issues that shooting range owners need to be aware of. These risks include weather incidents, non-club members trespassing and getting hurt, slips and falls in the parking lot, and more.
