might be dicey if it's been a busy day and brass is covering the floor.

i'd be more concerned with whether or not they're open-toed.

My 1st thought, don't. But then again, are you a CCW, if so you should practice in what you wear eveyday.

Shoot well!

When I worked in SF, it was pretty normal to have to go to the range in office clothes for evening matches. I kept a pair of tennis shoes in my bag and just switched over. The comment about watching out for brass is true... it's no fun becoming the floor show for everyone else.

Shoes, usually not a problem. If I go shoot with friends after work, I'll always remind them to get their office clothes dry cleaned afterwards. Lots of gunpowder residue. And if you're doing any air travel w/ those clothes, expect the detector to go off at the TSA station! :D

BTW, nice groups! You're shooting better than me ... aw, heck, anyone can shoot better than me!

High Heels have never slowed me down, but my long haired wig has gotten caught up in the pistols action a few times causing a FTF

You have to totally be careful! I almost twisted my ankle on the cases that were on the ground, but it does make sense that you should be comfortable shooting in what you wear everyday. That's a good tip!

Why can't you wear heels to a shooting range? Dress code?

Safety concerns. The ground is covered in spent casings that you will likely slip on, and if they are slinky they will leave skin exposed to be burned by flying hot brass. Feet are sensitive, and ankles twist. Taking a spill with a loaded gun in hand could get loud and exciting in a bad way real quick.

Just an idea but you might want to keep an overnight/go bag in the trunk of your car in the future specifically for days like this. A t-shirt, jeans, underwear, sweatshirt, socks, running shoes and hygiene products in a backpack in your trunk are always a smart idea. Spill something on your clothes, you have a change. Need to stay at friends, you have a clean set of clothes the next day. Dressed up for work, but want to do something athletic after your day is over, no problem. I take it a bit further and keep emergency medical supplies, a couple boxes of ammo, a couple MREs and so forth. But that is the military influence on me. The clothes come in handy all the time, and not just because I'm single.

I'm a big fan of women in heals. Big fan. But common sense and safety rule the day.

This is how a friend of mine took a bullet in the cheek at Chabot when a girl slipped while holding a loaded gun.

Took a couple of girlfriends shooting with their heels on a few times. Not the wisest choice in foot wear for a range, but they won't walk about in a normal fashion. They do the light "shuffle" and kick the brass away.
I do like watching other women who can handle a gun properly in a pair of +3" heels.
I've been to a few ranges seem to be popular date places where you get to see this, but the girls aren't the "proper gun handling" types. Usually their male companions aren't either:rolleyes:

Yeah, come to think about it, shouldn't we be practicing in the shoes we usually wear? If you're in heels every day (which I am not), I think you should be able to shoot in them, handle recoil in them. I would feel kinda stupid in 4" heels at the range though:rolleyes:

When I worked at a range, I was more concerned with anyone with open toed shoes and women with "brass catchers" than heels. Open toed shoes and hot brass don't mix well. Neither do "brass catchers" and hot brass. BTW, Brass catchers are low cut shirts with lots of cleaveage. Although it can be fun to watch, it's not safe! Other safety concerns regarding dress are, of course, eye and ear protection and, if shooting a long gun that recoils, bras with buckles or adjustments in the front strap are very uncomfortable and can cause bruising and pain.

I go to the outdoor range in heeled boots all the time. Any where from 2-4 heels. Just step carefully when walking on the dirt to post your target. : )

As Billy Crystals SNL portrayal of Fernando Lamas would say:

"Remember, it's not how you feel, it's how you look, and you look marvelous.

Hi everyone. Whew, it's been awhile but I thought I would add my two cents worth. Normally, I wear flats or tennis shoes, but occasionally I have worn heels and find more toes and less heels works well for me as well as watching where I'm walking.
