    The range I go to allows you to do this, you have to load up and holster it before exiting the shooting area though.

    LOL! I carry my EDC to the range. Thing is...if I'm going to practice with my EDC, then I pick another EDC to carry to the range. My EDC never gets revealed. I CC at the range and it never comes out of the holster or concealment. Kinda weird huh?

    Thanks for all the replies. I will have to check with the local range to see what it's rules, if any are.

    Sure, if the carry gun is one of the items being used on the range that day.

    I dont only because it is an outdoor range that has a cold and hot time so I respect the cold time by not having a loaded weapon on me.

    Been to the range a half dozen times with the new Kimber and carried on to and off of the range every time. Never an issue.

    Sometimes

    I do not know if the indoor range I use has any specific rules concerning this. I have never seen any signs specifying requirements concernng it.
    When I was new to concealed carry the first time I shot at the range after getting my CPL I asked one of the employees if I needed to tell them I had a concealed weapon on me and he said "Why would we need to know that?"
    From then on I just assumed it didn't matter to them. Sometimes I have my gun in a case in a range bag, sometimes in my concealed holster, depending on if I am coming right from work to the range.
    Usually if I am carrying the gun in the range bag it is still loaded because I take it out of the night stand by my bed where it is stored loaded but locked in a case. I keep it locked up when it is not in my holster on me. Since I have a CPL I figure loaded but locked in a case is the truck is not a problem.

    No restrictions anywhere I go shooting at. I always EDC the range, load up it up with practice ammo once there and practice my draw and firing with the EDC rig to improve that muscle memory. Once I'm done, I reload with my EDC ammo and off I go home or where ever.

    Yes. The range I frequent has a "no loaded weapons" sign, but after a couple trips the owner told me I could carry my CCW loaded in and out. He said he doesn't trust every "kid" that just got a CHP to be in the lobby area handling loaded weapons. Once he observes your safety practices, he grants permission to individuals to carry your CCW in and out (and shoot it on the range) as long as it stays holstered in the lobby. Sounds reasonable to me.

    Same here. The place I go, they knew that I carry in my IBW because I only have two boxes of ammo and truck key in my hands.

    If you were going to shoot a mime, would you use a silencer?
