    Group Shoot Range Rules


    First time attendees please read (more than once is recommended)

    Regulars, read it again.



    All ranges will be COLD RANGES. If you are carrying a loaded firearm, please approach the firing line, point your firearm downrange and unload it. Dry fire your firearm while pointing it downrange and holster it. All holstered firearms must be visibly unloaded with empty magazine wells visible to all. All firearms put on a table or into an open case must have the actions left open and facing up so that all shooters can see that the gun is safe. Chamber flags or other "empty chamber" indicators are strongly encouraged (there will some available for purchase for $1.00/ea at the shoot), but not required. Rounds of ammunition stored on a firearm (shotgun or rifle shells stored on the stock) will not be permitted.
    Eyes and Ears are REQURED ON ALL RANGES! Safety glasses should be kept on all day, ears are required when in the pavilion area on the main range and at the house, EI bays as well as down at the trap fields.
    Safe Tables - Safe tables are available at the house and one over by the left side of the main bay. If you would like to show someone your firearm and examine it without the fear of sweeping someone else please take it UNLOADED with NO AMMO WITH YOU, to the safe tables.
    Rule #1 - ALWAYS point firearms in a safe direction. Your first choice is downrange, second is at the ground, and third is up in the air. NEVER POINT A FIREARM AT A PERSON, even if the firearm is unloaded, holstered, disassembled, slide back, or any other condition that you might THINK is safe.

    Rule #2 - Keep your trigger finger outside the trigger guard until you are ready to fire. Premature trigger contact is the #1 reason for NEGLEGENT DISCHARGES.

    Rule #3 - Do not load your pistol until you are ready to shoot. Time and procedure for loading is described below.
    180 Degree Rule - At NO TIME should your weapon ever break the 180 degree plane including in the house or EI bays. Be especially vigilant in the stages like the house and EI bay where you are moving and shooting BE AWARE!

    Anyone can call "clear" at any time. If you like, see the RSO at your station and he can call it for you. During a "clear" there is no touching of firearms of any sort. No exceptions. During an "all clear" anyone can go downrange to check/paste/hang targets. The all clear continues into infinity until you hear "range going hot". If it has been a few minutes since the all clear and everyone is back on the line, do not assume the range is hot. Either ask the RSO if it is OK to go hot or shout the question "Range going hot?" Wait for others to make sure they have on eyes/ears, check downrange to make sure that there is no one pasting targets and then safely begin shooting again.
    During a cease fire, you should lower your weapon, with fingers OUT of the trigger guards and await further instructions from the RO.

    You are responsible for every round discharged from your firearm. Be certain that all shots will impact the dirt backstop on each range.


    Sweeping: All due diligence MUST be made to avoid sweeping yourself or others with your firearm. Sweeping is pointing your firearm at yourself or another person, loaded OR ULOADED! This is the worse infraction you can make and violates rule number one. If an RO sees you doing this, you will be required to put your firearms away for the day.

    Procedure for main range firing
    When the RSO calls "Range Going Hot - Eyes & Ears", you may approach the firing line with an unloaded firearm. Load your firearm on the firing line while pointing it downrange. Fire rounds at will. Unload your firearm prior to leaving the firing line. For pistols with holsters available, unload, clear chamber, dry fire while pointing downrange and holster. For all other guns, unload while pointing the gun safely downrange. Make the gun safe (slide back, bolt open, action open). Move the gun to the table or case and store action open and facing up. Be sure to point the gun in a safe direction at all times when moving from the firing line to the storage vessel.

    Procedure for Shoot House
    Approach the house when the RSO has instructed you to do so. The RSO will call out "Clear the house, range going hot". Then the RSO will walk through the house to make certain that no one is inside. You will be asked "Do you understand the course of fire?" If you answer "no" it will be explained to you until you do. Once you acknowledge that you understand the course of fire, you will be told "You may load and make ready." At that time, load and charge your firearm, apply the safety or decock the firearm, and holster. You will be asked "Are you ready?" Once you acknowledge that you are ready, you will be told "Standby". Within 4 seconds you will hear the timer beep. Upon hearing the beep, you may engage targets and move through the course of fire as you would like. Your firearm should never break the 180 degree plane of the front of the house. When you are finished firing, wait for the RSO to instruct "If finished show clear." Remove the magazine from the gun and pull back the slide, ejecting any live cartridge onto the ground. Hold the slide open to show the RSO the chamber. You will both be looking into the chamber to make certain there is no live round in it. You will be instructed "If clear, slide forward." Release the slide to the closed position. You will be instructed "Hammer down". Dry fire the gun while pointing down range. You will then be instructed "Holster" or "Bag" (for guns with no holster you will stow them in a case, bag or rug at this point). At this point the RSO will call out "Range is clear to paste and reset steel". At this point all present at the shoot house will enter the house, paste cardboard targets, and reset steel.

    Procedure for Easter Island Bay
    Approach the shooting station when the RSO has instructed you to do so. The RSO will call out "Range going hot". You will be asked "Do you understand the course of fire?" If you answer "no" it will be explained to you until you do. Once you acknowledge that you understand the course of fire, you will be told "You may load and make ready." At that time, load and charge your firearm, apply the safety or decock the firearm, and holster (hold shotguns in the low-ready position with the safety in the ON position - Note: no shotguns on Easter Island Bay for July shoot). You will be asked "Are you ready?" Once you acknowledge that you are ready, you will be told "Standby". Within 4 seconds you will hear the timer beep. Upon hearing the beep, you may engage as you would like. Your firearm should never break the 180 degree plane of the course of fire. When you are finished firing, wait for the RSO to instruct "If finished show clear." Remove the magazine from the gun (if applicable) and pull back the slide, ejecting any live cartridge onto the ground. For tube magazine-fed shotguns, cycle the action until the magazine and chamber are empty. Hold the slide open to show the RSO the chamber. You will both be looking into the chamber to make certain there is no live round in it. You will be instructed "If clear, slide forward." Release the slide to the closed position. You will be instructed "Hammer down". Dry fire the gun while pointing down range. You will then be instructed "Holster" or "Bag" (for guns with no holster you will stow them in a case, bag or rug at this point, for shotguns, you will open the action and return the gun to its case or rack). At this point the RSO will call out "Range is clear to reset/paste". At this point all present at the stage will approach the course and reset steel/paste targets.

    For the first time since September of 2007 for me, and the second time for MommaC, we won't be able to make the shoot.

    So, someone will need to step up to run the sign-in and bring the baked goods. Or you guys just go sans baked goods for this shoot and things will be back to normal in September.

    I left a bunch of fresh sign-in sheets on the clip board in the shed door last shoot, but I also have the sign-in sheet as a Word document in case someone is worried that they might not be there come the group shoot. The sheets have always been there on the clip board, since we ran out of the original months ago and I re-did the sheets, I've just been replenishing them as they were running low.

    Also, if you guys want nametags, someone will have to buy those as well. FWIW, I've been buying them at Staples (the actual Staples brand) and they're the cheapest of all the office supply type stores.

    I hope everyone has a great time

    I have name tags & have run sign-in before. I also bake but you might need to send me some of the recipes for the goodies everyone liked the most.

    I will do my best to live up to the high standard that you have set.
