If I have a pistol permit can I carry to/from the Nassau range? I thought they didn't allow it, but I don't see anything saying you can't on the website. https://www.nassauco...le-Pistol-Range

Its recommended you carry ONE loaded handgun concealed to and from the range.   (The locals would be lined up with machetes for free guns otherwise.)  However there is a sign at the door that your firearms must be unloaded upon entering the range.   Kind of defeats the purpose, ya think ?

There's an unloading station in the vestibule as you enter the range.

I used to go to that range at least once a week. I never understood why they would want people handling a firearm in the vestibule....some people are, lets just say, clumsy....add to the situation a newb who got some nerves buzzing and anyway I never paid attention to that sign. Nobody ever said a word.

 

And if you think it cant happen, just look at all the "accidental" discharge witness marks (bullet holes) all over that range.

The only time I have ever similarly unloaded was when as a Class A Agent I would remove the mag and rack the slide before picking up my unit's payroll.   Never at Mitchell, didn't do it today there, and never will either.    BTW, Mitchell was a ghost town today !

It's a Nassau County (government) range, hence the rules that make no sense.

 

The one that still makes me shake my head is that rifle magazines are limited to 5 rounds, but pistol magazines are not ("for now").

I only have 10 rounds for my rifles, I've never had a problem.

I have never heard of that or noticed anything regarding it. If it's posted, I didn't notice it.

Nothing new. The signs are visible when you go next time look at the wall.

My son and I usually take a half a dozen pistols, ammo bag, target bag, to the range. My PPKS stays in it concealed holster L&L at all times. If I'm by myself I condense down to one or two pistols same caliber with ammo all into target bag. PPKS stays L&L

Got to start at the beginning of the thread LOL.     Its just a rule for Mitchell Field in Uniondale, where even if your friend has a pistol license he is not allowed to shoot your pistol.

It is posted on the sign with the rules.  I don't think they vigorously enforce it, unless the shooter is being unsafe in some way.  

 

The RO's at MF are reasonable.  Their mission appears to be, "run a safe range", not "strictly enforce a bunch of anal rules".

The 5 round for rifle rule is not on the main board for rules in the reception area, but it is listed on the rules by the actual points.   It's not enforced at all--since it's a stupid rule.   As for no rapid firing, that is enforced.   Double taps only.   That's fine with me though.  It would be rude to do a mag dump at indoor range (it's loud enough to begin with).
