Walk in lane rental is $29 per lane, and $10 for an additional shooter on the same lane. We also have Memberships available
Range Rules & Safety
What safety precautions do you take?
The Range at Austin has an RSO (Range Safety Officer) inside of each bay at all times when in use.
Staff is always aware of firearms entering and exiting the buildings. We expect all guns to be cased when inside the facility.
Before being given a rental firearm a staff member will give a safety demo to ensure understanding of firearm safety and firearm use.
If you feel you need more help we do offer private safety officers for $50.00
Are children allowed to shoot? If so, is there an age limit?
Children can shoot with no age limit as long as they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. We reserve the right to judge the situation based on each case.
How old do you have to be to rent a firearm?
To rent a handgun you must be 21 years of age or older. To rent a rifle you must be 18 years of age or older.
Can I draw from a holster?
Can I shoot one-handed?
Yes, you may shoot handguns one-handed provided you do so safely and in accordance with our range rules
Can I take pictures?
Yes! But please respect other Range Guests by only taking pictures of you, or your friends and family.
Do you offer discounts for Military, Law Enforcement, or Veterans?

Do you offer a senior citizen discount?

How much is ammo?
Price of ammo varies depending on the caliber and how many rounds you are looking to purchase. Typically, $20-$40 is a good estimate for 9mm or higher. For specifics, feel free to call us.
Can I bring in my own ammo/ targets?
We ask that you do not use reloads, armor piercing, tracers, or steel core. Everything else is fair game. You may bring in your own paper targets designed for range use.
Licensing & Access
Are you open to the public?
Yes, everyone is welcome to shoot with us. The Range at Austin is our area’s premier gun store, gun range and firearms training facility. If you are not bringing your own firearms and only planning to rent you must come with one other person. We do not rent to single parties.
Do I need a special license or LTC to shoot at The Range?
Do I need to be a Texas resident or US citizen to shoot at The Range?
No — all we need from you is a valid, unexpired photo ID such as a drivers’ license, military ID, or passport. We’ll also ask you to sign a safety waiver and firearms rental agreement once you check in.
Can I make a reservation?
We do not offer reservations unless you have a membership. However, if you have purchased one of our event packages a reservation will be provided with the purchase.
I want to bring a group over to shoot for an event, is that possible?
Yes, please visit our Events & Groups page to book an event or to contact our Events department for more info.
Can I bring my own firearms?
Yes. It is preferred that you bring your firearms cased, bagged or holstered. All firearms not in cases, bags or holsters must be cleared with the bolt, slide or cylinder open so range staff can inspect them upon entering the building.
Can I shoot my shotgun?
Yes, we have 25 yard lanes available for shotguns. We only allow slugs on the range, no other shotgun ammo type is allowed.
Can I bring in my Class III items?
Yes, mention it to the RSO at check in so we can better place you on a lane. As a reminder all NFA items must have all paperwork and be legally obtained.
Can I shoot black powder firearms?
No, we do not allow black powder firearms to be used at our facility due to the increased fire risk.
How many firearms can I bring?
We recommend no more than 2-3 rifles. As for handguns, it is recommended that you bring no more than that which can fit inside a large range bag. Each lane has limited space, and we want to prevent gear/bags from being placed on the ground and walk-path. Ultimately it is a safety issue and we reserve the right to correct such situations.
Do you offer beginner classes?
Absolutely — our intro packages are a great place to start.
I’m a more experienced shooter looking to improve my skills. What classes do you offer?
Our Defensive Pistol 1 and Defensive Pistol 2 classes are geared more toward experienced shooters.
Do you buy guns?
used guns can be bought by the Range at Austin’s partner, Collector Firearms located inside The Range At Austin
