Range Rules

You will be asked to leave the range if you fail to obey any of the range rules or guidelines. 
The RANGE MASTER/Range Safety Officer (RSO) IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY on this range.

ALWAYS point your firearm in a safe direction (DOWN RANGE).

ALWAYS keep your finger off of the trigger and out of the trigger guard until the command to "FIRE" is given and when you are sighted on your target and ready to shoot!

DURING A COMMENCE-FIRE: 
You may resume shooting, but may not be positioned forward of the RED firing line for any reason. When handling firearms and walking to another table ALL FIREARMS MUST BE EMPTY AND POINTING UP!

DURING A CEASE-FIRE: 
Open and empty all firearms and remove all magazines. When your gun is completely unloaded, step behind the yellow safety line.

DO NOT HANDLE ANY FIREARMS FOR ANY REASON OR ANYTHING ELSE ON THE SHOOTING BENCH. STAY BEHIND THE YELLOW SAFETY LINE UNTIL THE RSO GIVES THE COMMAND TO COMMENCE-FIRE.

Do not handle any firearm when anyone is forward of the firing line. 

Be sure of your target and what is behind. DO NOT FIRE IF ANY WILDLIFE IS DOWN RANGE.
