Rifle/Pistol Rules

Violation of the rules on this page, the Safety Rules page, or the Range-Specific Rules page will subject violators to immediate ejection and forfeiture of all range fees! Range masters and management reserve the right to revoke your membership if you violate any of these rules!

General Pistol & Rifle Rules

  1. Eye and ear protection is mandatory on all ranges at all times. The range starts at the overhang.
  2. Treat all firearms as if they are loaded
  3. Keep the muzzle pointed down range at all times.
  4. Keep actions open and unloaded and finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
  5. You must call the range HOT (handling and shooting of firearms allowed) and COLD (all guns unloaded and actions open) yourself, before people can go down range
  6. Actions must be open, bolt face visible, and magazines removed when people are down range.
  7. Ensure the firing line is clear/COLDbefore going down range.
  8. DO NOT HANDLE/TOUCH GUNS, AMMO, OR ANYTHING ON THE BENCH WHEN PEOPLE ARE DOWN RANGE OR WHEN THE RANGE IS COLD. When the range is COLD step back from the bench until the range is HOT.
  9. Shoot only targets in or on provided target frames, or an equivalent frame. Targets must be an appropriate height so all rounds will impact the berm without ricocheting off the ground.
  10. Shooting rocks, bottles, cans, food, etc. is unsafe and strictly prohibited.
  11. All metal targets must be at the base of the berms or tall enough that if you miss the target the rounds will impact the berm.
  12. Ensure all rounds directly impact the backstop/berm without striking the ground first. If your rounds are not hitting the backstop/berm, adjust position of your target on the backer/frame.
  13. No centerfire rifles on F or G ranges. No pistols on A, B, or D ranges.
  14. When shooting shotguns: you may only shoot slugs at our target backers. Birdshot may be shot into the backstop/berm only with the permission of the Range Safety Officer. If you destroy BRSP target backers with birdshot, you will pay $10.00 and be asked to leave the range.
  15. ABSOLUTELY NO TRACER OR INCENDIARY AMMO.
