I'm not Military, can I still attend a Bad Moon Shooting Class?

updated 4 months ago

YES.

Civilian personal wanting to attend a Bad Moon Shooting Class can be signed onto Beale Air Force Base by the instructor staff, by one of two ways.

  1. If time allows, your information will be submitted to Beale Security Forces to be added to an Entry List Authorization (EAL) for access on the day of class. Please bring your REAL ID driver’s license, current registration and proof of insurance for your car with you. Once you arrive at the gate, notify Security Forces that you are a visitor and are on the EAL. Follow their directions to obtain the pass for the day. Once you obtain the pass, proceed to the Rod & Gun Club.
  2. Otherwise, you will need to make arrangements to meet the Instructor or a staff member from the Beale Rod & Gun club at the gate (or visitor center). Please bring your REAL ID driver’s license, current registration and proof of insurance for your car with you.

Concealed Carry Permits are NOT recognized on Beale Air Force Base. Off-Duty Law Enforcement Officers, may not carry on base. All firearms must be transported unloaded in a locked case.

Ammo must be transported separately (not in same case). If possible, place the gun in a locked case in the trunk, and the ammo in the car. Weapons may not be transported on any two or three wheel vehicles (Motorcycles, bicycles, etc).

When we break for lunch, the instructor will stay at the classroom to watch over your weapons if you decide to go out for lunch. DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN YOUR CAR, when you leave for lunch.

Once base access is granted, you may only transport your firearms from the entry control point (gate) to the Beale Rod and Gun Club. Once finished, you must immediately leave with the weapon. You are not allowed to run over to the local Burger King and get a cold soda or burger for the trip home. If you are needing to do so, please consult with your instructor to arrange for safe storage of the firearms while on Beale.
