If you roll the dice against my advice... you can expect extremely poor and condescending know-it-all behavior from the range masters to ""Club"" members regardless if solicited or not; despite demonstrating years of responsible safe gun handling skills.
The Range Staff clearly lacks not only customer service but basic human interaction skills such as critical reasoning when interpreting their draconian and unclear Range Rules which I maintain are both asinine and arbitrarily enforced. Additionally, they demonstrate an inherent lack of tact and awareness of personal boundaries by pestering those who reasonably interpret and adhere to the Posted Range Rules and wish to remain undisturbed while shooting.
Range staff display the typical ""OPPRESSIVE"" culture and attitudes so frequently demonstrated in the Northwest. The staff demonstrates the stereotypical characteristic of individual(s) with manifold layers of Napoleon Complex. Power trips experienced are similar to that of an overly authoritarian security guard; who's been repetitively refused entry into Law Enforcement on psychological grounds. Additionally, they exhibit an inability to reasonably and responsibly exercise good decision making judgment interpreting their own Range Rules.
Excuses offered from other ""REVIEWS""... (i.e. the range is in a residentail area) is ""HOGWASH"". Both (Renton Fish & Game Club) and (Issaquah Sportsman Club) are in residential areas as well. In fact, (Issaquah Sportsman Club) is also right next to Issaquah High School and they allow 10 round clips and rapid fire at 25, 50, 100 yards. It is striking & noteworthy to point out... they have never experienced the problems which Kenmore Range suggests its avoiding with its strict ""ONE ROUND IN THE CHAMBER"" policy.
It just boils-down to which Range treats their Patrons as mature responsible adults.
Clearly, Kenmore - DOES NOT! Of course, if you enjoy being treated as an adolescent; subjected to passive-aggressive, authoritarian behavior, then Big Thumbs-Up for this Range.
