COVID-19 LTC Class Format

In response to the Tarrant County Executive Order issued on June 25, 2020, Shoot Smart is now requiring that all guests wear a face-covering while on our premises. Students and instructors participating in training are required don face-coverings during non-range training activities. Face-coverings must cover the nose and mouth, such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief. Face-coverings will be available for purchase for $1 if needed.

1. Classes are limited to 8 students at Grand Prairie, 9 Students at Benbrook, and 9 students at Alliance, with one instructor. Students will be spaced a minimum of 6 feet apart in the classroom.

2. Limited bathroom breaks will be given with only one student departing the classroom at a time, going directly to and then from the bathroom.

3. Snack and drink vending won't be available at this time, but you are welcome to bring your own from home.

4. Late arrivals will not be permitted to sit the class, regardless, due to the limited number of support personnel. We will work to reschedule any late students.

5. Loaner eye/ear protection is not currently available. We do have both eye and ear protection available for purchase at a reasonable price for use in the shooting portion.

6. Smith & Wesson 9MM or .22 LR firearms are available for rent with a $5 disinfecting fee.

Students exhibiting symptoms of flu or other illness will be asked to leave; we will work with those students to reschedule when business returns to normal.

Please feel free to reach out to us directly with any questions or concerns.

You can reach us by email at info@shootsmart.com or by text at (682) 207-2018.
