Range Rules

Range Rules

  • Treat all firearms as if they are loaded.  Keep the muzzle pointed down range at all times on the firing line.  Make firearms safe before leaving the firing line (bolts open, slides back, magazines out, etc.)
  • Never go forward of the firing line when others are firing.  If two or more are firing, one must act as range officer to see that firearms are safe before going forward of the firing line.  Firearms must not be handled when someone is forward of the firing line.
  • Ricochets are a potential problem.  Be certain your rounds are contained by the backstop.  An unknown zeroed firearm should be fired at 50 yards on the left side of the range (positions 1-18) before firing at 100 yards.
  • Firing at 100 yards must be by single shot only.
  • Use proper target frames.  DO NOT use the steel pistol frames for rifle shooting.  Also, DO NOT stick the steel pistol frames in the ground, they are made to use on the steel pipe bases ONLY.
  • Never shoot IPSC steel targets with rifle calibers.  Never shoot at range structures (signs, frames, pipes, walls, barrels, etc..).
  • Plinking at cans, bottles, etc, on the range is forbidden.  This can cause ricochets and trash on the range.  The only exception is objects hung on the plinking frame at the 50-yard backstop.
  • Firearms carried on the range property must be displayed as unloaded unless cased or holstered.
  • Police the area when you leave.  Pick up all trash and return the frames to proper storage area.
  • At times (infrequently), the military or police use our range.  If you are planning to use the range during the week (Monday thru Friday) call to check the schedule for range closures.  We post notices at the range about a week ahead of time in inform members.
