Can I bring my child?
Family Shooting Academy is a Family Friendly shooting range. Children under 18 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children under 16 must have a parent or guardian in the shooting lane with them at all times (1 on 1). Children 16 and older may shoot in a lane adjacent to their parent or guardian. One child under 16 per adult. Children can not be left unattended in the showroom or range at any time.
Is it true eveyones name there is Mike?
It's mostly true. In our extensive research we have found that the name Mike automatically gives its bearer superhuman shooting abilities.
Can I bring my own ammo, or do I have to use yours?
If you are brining your own firearms, you may bring your own ammo. If you plan on renting a firearm from us, you must purchase ammo from us as well. This is the only way we can guarantee that the ammo being used in our guns is quality factory ammo and not handloads. Armor piercing, tracers and inciderary rounds are not permitted.
Do I have to make a reservation to come use the range?
Reservations are not required. We accept walk-in shooters on a first come, first served basis during normal business hours. Reservations can be made by members, but must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

- General Public (non-member): Can not reserve lanes
- Basic Member: Can reserve one lane at a time
- Freedom Individual Member: Can reserve one lane at a time
- Freedom Family Member: Can reserve one lane per family member age 16 or older, up to a maximum of four lanes

*Lane reservations can only be made in 1 hour blocks. Any reservations made for conncurrent 1 hr blocks will be removed past the initial hour.
I just found out I am pregnant. Am I allowed to shoot at the range?
No. Due to health reasons, we do not allow ladies who are pregnant out on the range.
Can I bring my supressor / short barreled rifle / full auto firearm?
Yes, but you must show the proper documentation of ownership (bring a copy of your tax stamp). You also have to be able to maintain control of the weapon (full auto).
Can I practice drawing from a holster?
Yes, after your draw is checked out by one of our safety officers. We only allow drawing from a strong side holster. For example we do not allow the use of cross draw or shoulder holsters on the range.
Can I bring my own targets?
Yes, as long as they are no larger than 25"h x 19"w. We also do not allow the use of homemade targets. i.e paper plates, post-it notes, etc.
What kinds of firearms do you rent?
We have over 70 firearms available to rent. We offer a wide selection of handguns, and a variety of rifles. Due to the constant changing rental inventory, we can not provide a list of rental guns.
Can my friend come on the range and watch?
We only allow paid customers on the range. Your friend is welcome to observe you shooting from our control room if they do not want to pay for a spot on the range.
Do you guys do FFL transfers?
Yes, we do. Our transfer fee is $30. Handguns incure an additional $10 charge from Wisconsin DOJ for the state background check.

If you wish to have a firearm transferred, please have the dealer email us a copy of their FFL to FFL(a)FamilyShootingAcademy.com. Make sure they include your contact information in the package.

Please note that often times we recieve multiple shipments in a day. Just because tracking shows the firearm as being delivered, it may not be ready for pick up that same day. Please allow 24hrs for us to process them into our books.
