I recognize that even when proper precautions are taken, unpredictable and serious accidents can and do occur.

Despite understanding these risks, including the risk of serious physical harm, I nonetheless choose to participate in Firearm Activities.
Assumption of Risk. Understanding the risks involved, I voluntarily choose to participate in Firearm Activities and to be around others in possession of and discharging firearms, and EXPRESSLY ASSUME the associated risks, including the risk of injury and death, whether caused by the negligence of any of the Released Parties or any other cause.

Further, I assume the risk of damage or injury caused by me, my guests and observers, and INDEMNIFY the Released Parties against any claims for damages to persons or property caused by me or my guests and observers. I further acknowledge and agree that Section 4 of the Michigan Sport Shooting Ranges Act 269 of 1989 applies to my participation.Unpredictable Causes and Personal Responsibility. I understand that injuries and harm may result from being around Firearm Activities from a variety of causes, including the acts or omissions of other persons, weather, environmental and situational conditions, and other causes which are not necessarily predictable. I understand that it is my responsibility to follow all laws, rules, and instructions, to practice proper firearm safety, and to act in a responsible manner to ensure my own safety and the safety of others to the maximum extent possible.Personal Property; Insurance. I agree that I am responsible for the security of my own personal property, including my firearm(s), ammunition, shooting gear, and any other personal effects, and that the Released Parties cannot guaranty the security of my property. Should I leave any personal property in the custody of the Released Parties, I do so at my own risk.
None of the Released Parties shall have any liability to me in the event of loss, damage, unauthorized use by any person or the theft of any such property. I acknowledge that I should purchase sufficient insurance to cover my own property and other interests.
