All individuals using any of the ranges must complete a range orientation and safety program.
All individuals using any of the ranges are expected to assist in the maintenance of the facilities by picking up their empty shells/cartridges or any trash and disposing them properly. Additionally, members using the shotgun sport ranges are expected to reload the machines with targets when they are finished shooting on days when the range manager is not on duty.
Ear and eye protection is required on all gun ranges. Guns should be pointed in a safe direction down range when loaded. Additional range rules are posted throughout the club grounds. These rules are approved by the Board of Directors and must be followed.
Remember, SAFETY is everyone’s responsibility.
