Can we use the picnic area?  Of course!  Please clean up when you are done.  If an organized shoot has occurred and the shooters are set up to eat at the area as part of the shoot, please do not interfere or intrude.  These members have paid for the privilege of using the area as part of the event.  FINALLY, do not let children run wild and climb on the picnic bunker!


  1. Who’s the Boss on the range?  First and foremost, the rangemaster. Range officers, are also in charge when present, however, their authority is  not above the rangemaster’s authority.
  3. Can't I just do whatever I want on the range?  Yes, within reason!  It is a range, so No drinking, No smoking, No eating and No horseplay on the firing line.
  5. Do I have to pay attention to my firearm(s) when not shooting at the moment?  Of Course!  Keep weapons pointed down range at all times; unloaded with the action open unless you are shooting.

What is the very first thing I should do when I get up to the firing line?  Check down range for anyone putting up targets.  If there is no rangemaster, check for cars or trucks.  If there are vehicles, chances are good that there are persons on the range.  Use your common sense! 

  2. If I want to set up a target what is the procedure?  Even if no other shooters are present at the time, you MUST unload your firearm and open the action when leaving the line to put up targets.  All shooters must exit the line and get behind the sliding gate. Once everyone has exited the line, you then close the sliding gate to signal that a man is down range and that no one is to enter the line.  If there are other shooters present and or placing targets, get a count of them all and make sure everyone has returned behind the gate before reopening the sliding gate.  ALSO, do not walk on the berms.   Place targets 1 foot to midway up the face of the berm.
  4. What if I just need to leave the line for a second? All weapons left unattended must be unloaded with the action open.
  6. Can I shoot special ammo and or exploding targets? NO. No tracers, armor piercing ammo, or exploding targets are to be used on the range.
  8. Can I bring bottles and cans to shoot?  Yes, but NO GLASS. Please pick up your debris.  The rangemaster has better things to do than clean up your mess.
  10. When I am done shooting, what is the procedure?  All debris on the firing line and range resulting from the members shooting shall be picked up.  A broom is available for sweeping brass into the trough in front of the line
  12. Can I wear my side arm in a holster?  Only peace officers or the rangemaster are allowed to wear a side arm.  A person with a permit to carry is not allowed to carry in a holster on the range.  
  14. Do I need to wear eye and ear protection? Yes.
