Bill’s Gun Shop & Range’s mission is to provide a 5-Star experience to our members and guests. In doing so, we want to make sure we place the safety of our members and guests first on our list of priorities.

With that safety in mind, beginning January 1, 2019, Bill’s Gun Shop & Range will have a new policy that helps to ensure the hearing protection of our members and guests. The policy moving forward will be that no “foam” earplugs may be used as the sole source of hearing protection while in our ranges.

Lately there have been too many research reports and national safety reviews calling attention to the fact that 1) people don’t insert the foam ear plugs correctly in their ears and 2) the actual noise reduction level that foam ear plugs provide is simply not enough to be safe related to indoor gun ranges.

I am sure there will be some frustration for those who love their “foamies” but I believe that we as an organization, and a member community, have the obligation to set the example for safety where we can.
