RANGE RULES

We have noticed several range violations over the summer and would like to remind those who use the ranges to obey the rules. Anyone caught in violation of the rules could lose their membership or at the very least have to attend a range safety meeting prior to using the ranges again. Range badges must be worn at all times when you are on the ranges. Guests are limited to 2 per member. Hearing and eye protection are required by everyone on the range regardless of whether or not you are shooting. No handling of firearms is allowed when another shooter is down range. This includes loading and unloading magazines or your range bag upon arrival.  If you have questions regarding the range rules please ask before using them. We will be happy to answer any questions. If you are the first to arrive at one of the ranges please turn on the RED light. If you are the last shooter check other ranges before turning out the light. If the YELLOW/AMBER light is on, it is possible that maintenance is being performed at that time so please ASK prior to getting your firearm out of your vehicle whether the range is open or not. Shooting holes in anything other than paper targets is strictly prohibited. This includes the roof and the benches. Care should be taken when handling a loaded firearm to prevent unintentional discharges.

Please remember to follow the rules of SAFETY at the range. Treat all of your firearms as if they are loaded and keep them pointed in a safe direction at all times. Never put your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot at the intended target. Please avoid being distracted while handling firearms also. Small children should not be on the range unless they are under your immediate supervision. Multiple children need to be kept back from the range and under someone else’s care while shooting on the ranges. Please be considerate to your fellow shooters and pick up all of your brass and dispose of used targets before leaving the range. Buckets are provided for the disposal of the brass only. All used targets and shotgun shells are to be disposed of in the trash can. The bucket contents are available to those who wish to reload only. Under no circumstances is the brass to be taken from club property to be sold for scrap. Anyone caught doing so faces disciplinary action by the Club.
