*We are aware of ammo shortages and pricing. We understand. We believe good meaningful reps, knowledge, and understanding are more valuable than mindlessly pulling a trigger. Therefore, all JBS classes have been created so that you may bring less than the suggested amount and get all of the same value, minus more live fire reps. You can get through any JBS courses with 500 rounds. If you are fortunate enough to have more than that available, bring it. You’ll want to shoot it. But if you’re struggling, 500 is all you’ll need to have an outstanding time.



If this will be your first time shooting at Hobbs Island Shooting Range, you must sign a waiver before your visit. This must be done online by following the appropriate link for either an adult waiver or a child waiver. The link will open a new tab when selected.
