Pistol Range Operating Procedures
- SAFETY is our #1 PRIORITY. Know and obey all range commands. They are important to your safety and the safety of others.
- All firearms will be unloaded with the action open and magazines removed before entering or leaving the range. Unloaded firearms may be transported in gun case, with the actions closed.
- All firearms will be placed on shooting benches with the muzzles pointed down range or in the rifle racks.
- All shooters will remain behind the first red line, except when the range is cleared for shooting. The red warning lights will go off and the Range Safety Officer will announce "commence fire" allowing shooting to begin.
- Shooting periods are normally 20 minutes long. There will be a 5 minute and a 1 (one) minute warning before a cease fire is called. Use this time to finish firing, unload your firearm and step behind the red line. Leave your firearm on the bench with the action open or removed.
- When a cease fire is called remain behind the first red line until the red lights go on and the Range Safety Officer announces it is okay to change targets. Do not handle any firearm during the cease fire period.
- During target change cease fires, place your paper target on the frame above the number frame matching your numbered shooting position. Do not place targets on posts, number boards or other devices or holders not provided by the club or approved by the Range Safety Officer.
- Please try to clean up after yourself. Recycle your targets and put spent casings in the provided buckets. Brooms are provided to sweep up spent casings.
- When the range is cleared, the Range Safety Officer will turn off the red lights and announce the “commence fire.” Then and only then may you proceed forward, load your firearm and begin firing.
