Any type of trigger activating devices or trigger manipulation (bump firing) is also prohibited.Who is responsible for supplying targets and target stands for members?*Members are responsible for supplying their own paper/cardboard targets and target stands to hold your paper/cardboard targets.The club supplies them.The Rules & Regulations state: Targets must be placed in such a manner that fired bullets will be stopped by the appropriate downrange berm, ricochets will be prevented and no club or range equipment will be damaged. What does that mean?*Just find a cardboard box, political/realty signs and attach my target to them. I can set it anywhere I want.Your bullets must strike the berm at the very end of the range you are using, not on the ground in front of it. To do this it is suggested that your targets are at least 5’ feet tall unless you are firing from a prone position. If you use low targets your bullets will likely strike the ground and could skip out of the range.Just look around the club. I should be able to find a chair or something laying around that will work.Can you tape, tie, lean or set your target against or on any swinger, plate rack, pins for the Bullseye target frames (on the 25 yd rifle range) or any other structure?*Yes. It is steel my bullets won't hurt it.No. Using club property like that causes very expensive damage and makes them unavailable for members use.Can you shoot cans or plastic bottles?*No.Yes, but they need to be placed against the farthest berm so the bullet strikes the berm, not the ground. Make sure all fragments are picked up when you exit.Yes, we can just throw them on the ground and chase them across the range with my pistol/rifle.Are there any NON ACCEPTABLE TARGETS?*No. If I can get it to the club I can shoot it. I paid my dues.Yes. Prohibited targets include anything that will break, shatter or leave non-perishable fragments. Such as glass, computer screens, etc. (Tractor tires are expensive)You get to the range and find some of the ranges have walls and targets set up. Can you shoot the targets they have set up?*No. The range is set up for a match (IPSC, Cowboy, etc). If you shoot the targets it can cause damage or delay in getting a match running. Use a different range or move off to the side and set up your own targets.Yes, I'm not going to hurt anything. I don't usually get to shoot this kind of target.Does the club supply any targets that we can use? (Stationary steel targets count!)*No.Yes. We have plate racks on some of the pistol bays that are available on a first come first served basis. On the rifle ranges we have swinging plates and paper target frames (in the 200 yd pits) available. DO NOT use any armor piercing ammo on any of the ranges. If you are unsure if it is check the bullets with a magnet.What types of firearms can you use to shoot steel targets (plate racks, pepper poppers, plates) on the <<< pistol bays (ranges 1-9) >>>?*Handguns, center fire rifles and shotguns.Any legal firearm.Any handgun (except magnums i.e. .41 & .44 Mag, 454 casul, .460 & .500 S&W, any bottleneck pistol cartridge), .22LR rifles, shotguns (NO SLUGS).What types of firearms can be used to shoot the steel swingers on the rifle ranges?*Rifles Only.Rifles, Pistols and Shotguns.

We are not on a movie set and you aren't shooting blanks. We have to make sure all of our hits are into the berm. You cannot guarantee that your bullets are hitting the berm when you are playing.If you are sharing a range with other shooters, what needs to be done before anyone goes forward of the firing line?*Just hollar down to the other shooters that you are going downrange.They can see I am going downrange they will quit shooting.It is everyone's responsibility to make sure the firing line is safe before ANYONE goes forward of the firing line. Before anyone goes down range all firearms must be unloaded, the action will remain open or the firearm is put in the rack. On the Rifle Range change the sign so it reads "Range Closed".Can you work on, clean, adjust or put a firearm away while there is anyone forward of the firing line? (We are talking about just the range you are using, not the entire facility)*Yes. It isn't loaded.No. The Rules & Regulations state that: All firearms are to be unloaded, with actions open, before anyone moves forward of the firing line. When anyone is forward of the firing line to inspect or set targets no firearms will be handled in any manner. When you are finished shooting who is responsible for cleaning up the targets, brass/shotgun hulls, garbage, etc?*The next shooter will take care of it.I am responsible for cleaning up after myself and/or my group.
