- ANYONE has the right to call CEASE FIRE.

- Members and Guest MUST sign in on Range Sign In sheets.

- Guest MUST fill out Hold Harmless Agreement and placed in Hold Harmless Agreement box prior to using any range or facilities.

- Guest MUST share your shooting bench/area when room is needed for other Club Members.

- NEVER cross the shooting line unless the range is COLD and/or AT CEASE FIRE.

- Know the shooting line DO NOT make your own line.

- Do not attach targets directly to the wood of the target stands.  This destroys the stands.  Please use cardboard and then attach target to cardboard.

- Know your target and what is beyond your target

- Do not cross lanes of fire, shoot only at YOUR target

- Ensure that your target is within the backstop parameters at all times. Rounds must impact backstop and NOT anywhere else.

- Be sure that your firearm is safe to operate and know how to use your firearm safely. Shooters need to know how the firearm operates, its basic parts, how to safely open and close the action, and how to remove the ammunition or projectiles.

- Use only the correct ammunition for your firearm. Only the ammunition designed for a particular firearm can be safely fired in that firearm. Shooters should ensure that the caliber marked on the barrel, ammo box, and cartridge cases match. This is especially true for antique guns.

- Control your brass / shells at all times.  DO NOT interfere with other shooters.  Your spent casings should not enter other shooters area at anytime. 

- If you break it or damage it, or if you observe something broke, damaged or an unsafe act report it to a Club Officer, Board Member or Range Safety Officer so it can and will be addressed.
