    Default Binary Targets at PMSC

    For some reason, I thought binary targets are prohibited at PMSC. However, my review of the 2021 Handbook, the latest available from the website, seems to offer no such ban.

    Does anyone know for sure?

    Exploding targets probably were not even a consideration when the rules were drawn up.

    No. I don't know for sure, but I thought basically only paper targets were permitted.

    I could wrap paper around it.

    PMSC has an active presence on Fakebook. If you want the official stance you could probably ask them over there. Yeah, yeah, I hate fakebook as much as the next guy but sometimes you just gotta go where the people/information are. I like the old days when PMSC had its own forums on their website where you felt better discussing club business than in a public one. But as many useful private forums have, it has fallen into disuse and/or abondonment.

    Then again if you're asking on the down-low for potential plausible deniability down the road I'd not ask there ... but then again, there are enough non active PMSC members here that your cover is likely blown anyway. ;-)

    I wouldn*t think they allow it, plenty of videos out there where idiots dam near blow themselves up, lose limbs etc. Doubt that*s something they*ll wanna deal with if and when something similar happens.
    Today was a good day!

    They are not allowed per the rules on the website.

    Additional Rifle Range Rules

    1. To go downrange, call *Cease Fire* and when all firearms are secured and unloaded call *All Clear* before going beyond the concrete pad. The *Cease Fire* strobe warning light switch must be turned on alerting the entire firing line that it is NOT CLEAR. The last person returning from downrange shall turn the strobe warning light switch off alerting the entire firing line it is NOW CLEAR. Calling *Range going hot, eyes and ears* signifies that firearms may be handled and that shooting may resume.

    2. Shooting is only permitted from the cement pad. Shooting from the grass is prohibited.

    3. Only the following target types and locations may be used:


    a. Paper targets attached to the club-provided target hangers (wire on 100 and 200-yard ranges and plywood on the 300-yard range). Do not attach targets to the posts supporting the wire or the plywood.

    b. Steel targets appropriate for the caliber being shot and set up directly in front of the berm in such a manner that short rounds will impact the berm. No intermediate targets.
