Regulations

Safety

  • In an effort to improve range safety, the firing line at the range has been established as a line extending left and right from the front plane of the covered shooting area. That line is now demarcated by a white stripe that extends across the shooting area. Members are reminded that they should not position forward of that line to shoot. The only exception would be for a special event, sanctioned by the club, where the range would be closed for any other shooting activities.
  • The range is divided between areas reserved for pistol and longarms use. On the pistol side, moveable targets are only to be used between the fence separating the pistol and longarms areas and the permanent pistol target frames,
  • No moveable frame is to be placed in front of another frame.
  • No alcohol is to be consumed before or during shooting.
  • Smoking is prohibited inside the perimeter fence of the range.
  • Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction.
  • Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
  • Always keep your firearm unloaded until you're at the firing line and the range is declared "HOT".

  • Immediately stop shooting when anyone calls "Cease firing".
  • Shooters must check to ensure no one is down range before declaring the range "HOT".
  • The gate to the range must be closed before the range goes "HOT".
  • When the range is declared "HOT", shooters are permitted to commence firing.
  • If no one on the firing line has done so, check to insure there is no one behind the back stops before starting shooting.
  • It is optional to insert safety flags into the forearm's open action to indicate the firearm is in a safe condition.
  • Only shooters and their assistants are permitted on the firing line.
  • Explosive and glass targets are prohibited
