We’re more than happy to speak with you on the phone or via email. Here are some of the most popular questions we receive.
I am a Standard Member but out of guest passes. How does pricing work if I have a guest but no more guest passes?

Can my guest and I have two lanes?
Member guest passes can be used when a guest is shooting on the members lane. An additional lane can be purchased by a member for $20.00.
How do reservations work?
We require 24 hours advanced notice on reservations. Each member may reserve one lane. We will not reserve lanes for non-members or guests of members, however if space is available we are happy to issue separate lanes at the time of check in. Lane reservations will be held for 15 minutes. If the reservation is not filled within that time frame it will be pulled. Reserving specific lanes or adjacent lanes is a request we accommodate when possible – however it is not guaranteed. Reservations are subject to availability and not taken on holidays or event weekends.

How long do I have before I must pick up my firearm without incurring fees?
Once any item (including firearms) is purchased in store, online, transferred in or out, to or from another location or has work performed on it, the customer will have 30 days to process and complete all required paperwork, make payment of any outstanding balance of cost or fees and remove the item from the SGC building.
Any items (including firearms) left at the Scottsdale Gun Club longer than 30 days will begin to accrue monthly storage fees. These fees will be assessed on the 1st of every month and must be paid in full before the item will be transferred out or picked up. Rates vary based on items (e.g. $20 per month for firearms).
Can I reschedule or cancel a class that I signed up for?
You may cancel for a full refund if you are canceling more than 72 hours in advance of the class, or you may reschedule for a $10 fee between 72 and 24 hours in advance of the class. Classes are non-refundable within 24 hours of the class. The 72 hour window gives SGC the opportunity to contact customers that have been placed on a waitlist for the courses.
