RANGE SPECIFIC RULES
GENERAL RANGE RULES
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY

“Highway 138, number 4395” to report an INJURY, not a shooting.
2. The last person leaving the range is to close and lock the front gates. Individuals may lock the gate behind them for additional security while they are shooting alone at the range.
3. The gate code is not to be shared with non-members.
4. All members and guests must register in the range log book.
5. Non-members are required to fill out a range visit sheet and pay visitors fee if applicable.
6. Club identification should be worn at all times.
7. No person shall attend the range facility while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
8. Range hours are 9:00 a.m. to sunset, seven days a week.
9. The safety area is for firearm maintenance and to uncase, holster, and encase firearms by qualified individuals for approved disciplines.
10. No ammunition is allowed in the safety area.
11. At any time that two or more individuals are at the range for the purpose of organized shooting, one person shall be designated as the Range Officer.
12. Junior members must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, adult or designated range Safety Officer at all times while conducting shooting.
13. The Range Officer must be obeyed at all times while on the range.
14. No person shall be permitted forward of the firing line without the express permission of the Range Officer and only after a cease-fire has been called and all firearms have been declared safe. No shooter shall cross the red line to approach a shooting bench or handle a firearm during a cease-fire.
15. Any shooter who finds his/her firearm to be defective during a shooting exercise shall notify the Range Officer immediately.
16. Only targets approved by the club executive may be used. No glass targets allowed.
17. Target stands and holders must be placed at the base of the backstop, and targets fastened at a height such that bullets strike the backstop and not the range floor.
18. Approved metal targets shall be surrounded by wooden shrouds, and shall be engaged at a distance of 10 meters or more.
