I have a friend who is here for a year (Ukranian Military officer). He is very interested in shooting some of my firearms. Just to be safe, I called Shoot Straight, a local gun store and indoor rifle range, and spoke to "Mack" about him coming to shoot with me. I pay the yearly fee to use the range and figured that this would be no problem. Here is the reply from Mack: M: "He can't shoot." "Why?" M: "It's against federal law." "So non-US Residents are not allowed to handle and shoot firearms?" M: "That is correct." "Thanks... I'm going to look up that law right now." What is the policy of foreign guests at a shooting range? I understand that there may a more restrictive store policy for liability reasons, but "Mack" clearly stated that it is a FEDERAL law that prohibits my Ukranian friend from shooting with me.
