Frequently Asked Questions:

​What is the age limit for shooting at Total Defense?

  • We love seeing the young ones hitting the range. If you feel and know your child or children can safely handle a firearm in an indoor range, we'd love to see them in. We have several children from the ages of 8 and up that come in all the time. Children under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent. 

​Why don't you allow steel or aluminium cased ammo into the range?

  • Aluminum cased ammo is to hard to sort and our recyclers will reject the load if it has aluminium mixed in with the brass. Steel cased ammo is often a bi-metal projectile that causes significant damage to the bullet traps and is a fire hazard.
