Range Rules:

For a list of the range rules, please click here.

These rules are meant to insure the safety of everyone who uses the range and there are NO exceptions to any of the rules for any reason. Following them at all times is mandatory and breaking any rules could mean expulsion from the club.

It is very important that everyone has a copy and has read the range rules before use of the range, if you have not and cannot access pdf files, please email a club officer so they can get you a copy


Rules 1 and 2 of the "Grounds and Standing Range Rules" have been changed to read as follows:

1. All Members must have their current membership visible on their person or range bag when on club property and be signed in. Members have the right to check other member’s cards while on club grounds.

2. Members will treat other members with proper respect when on the property. Loud, profane or boisterous language will not be allowed.

These rule changes are effective immediately.

(Passed by members on 09/04/2014 at Monthly Meeting)

A reminder: EVERYONE must sign in BEFORE using the grounds including the range!

The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling are:

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
