This was also the policy(and I assume may still be) at Garden State Shooting Center when I was a member there. Even if you were a well known member, if you wanted to rent and shoot alone, you must have had one of your own firearms with you. I wasted a trip there as a result but respected their adherence to their policy and the reasons for it.
On subsequent occasions when I only wanted to rent, I would bring one of my long guns with me (i.e. no risk of an unreasonable deviation while transporting).
p.s. normally would need to provide your DL, not FID, when shooting.
It's been an interesting year. I have a few annuities up 22% for the year, totally unexpected. I have a custom pet product ETF I built where the stocks are up anywhere from 24% to 128% for the year. I knew that would be a winner, I should have dumped more in it. I have a biotech (your field) up 43%. Even my consumer discretionary ETF is up 41%. That's nuts.
When the economy started to roll over last Fall, I played it safe with a chunk of change. Who knew they would print multiple TRILLIONS this year to prop up the market? Missed even more opportunities.
