We are Frederick, Maryland's premier indoor shooting range. We are here to change the perception of guns and gun owners one experience at a time.

The Machine Gun Nest is an indoor shooting range located in the heart of Frederick, Maryland. Our facility has 12 shooting lanes that are 25 yards in length. Both pistols and rifles are welcome and our bullet trap is ready to receive rounds up to and including .50BMG. You can rent everything you need here, from ear and eye protection to fully automatic firearms. Our shooters can either pay by the hour or purchase a membership.

What do I do?

When entering, make sure your firearms are cased and unloaded.

Bring your firearms to the desk so that a TMGN crew member can make sure they're clear and safe.

Next, fill out our waiver on the iPad stands. This only needs to be completed once, whether you wish to proceed as a guest or member. Watch our range safety briefing video, which plays on a continuous loop above the iPad stands. 

Return to the desk for your lane assignment. We will make sure you have everything you need from targets, ear and eye protection, ammo, or even firearm rentals!

Ear and eye protection are to be on before entering the range. The Range Safety Officers on the firing line will answer any questions you may have and are there to make sure your experience is both safe and fun.

What do I need to bring?

Bring along your valid form of photo identification (driver's license, passport, etc.).

You are welcome to bring any of your own firearms and any of your own ammunition. The range can handle rounds up to .50 BMG. For more specifics on which types of ammunition you may bring, check out our FAQ page.

You are permitted to bring your own targets also, as long as they can be hung at eye level. Clips, tape, staples, and extra cardboard are provided.
