Q: Gun handling.
A: Tri County Gun Club is a “Cold” Range. You can unbag and handle your firearm(s) only in a Safety Area or under the direct supervision of a range officer. There are numerous Safety Areas at our facility. You may work on your firarm(s), take sight pictures and dry fire (in a safe direction). NEVER handle live or dummy ammunition while in a Safety AREA – That is viewed as a MATCH DISQUALIFICATION.
