Do I Have To Have A Permit To Shoot At A Gun Range?

Updated: Jul 7, 2023

If you’re looking to shoot a gun at a gun range, one of the first questions you might ask is, “Do I need a gun license to do so?” The answer to this depends on various factors, including where you live and the type of weapon you want to use.



At Republic Gun Club, for instance, shooters will not be required to have a gun permit or license but will be required to show a valid driver’s license. You must be 18 years or older to use our gun range by yourself, and any shooters under the age of 18 will require a parent or legal guardian to accompany them. If you have a felony and are not permitted to be in possession of a firearm, you will not be allowed to use our gun range.


So there you have it, in order to use the gun range at Republic Gun Club, you will not be required to possess any gun-specific permits/ licenses or take any specific classes. Our range officers are here to assist those who may be new to shooting to ensure that you understand the basic safety rules of operating firearms to allow you to train with your firearms.
