RANGE SAFETY RULES FOR OUTDOOR PISTOL & RIFLE

·         Safe operation of shooting ranges requires strict adherence to rules and guidelines established by the club.

·         Ranges are for use by members and invited guests only, except for those shooting events, which are open to the public. Members shall be responsible for ensuring that their guests are aware of the range rules, and supervise their actions.

·         When more than one member is on the range, those present shall appoint a range officer. The range officer shall be responsible for the shooting activities at the firing line and shall give the commands to "commence fire" and "cease fire".

·         The range officer shall also be responsible for ensuring that all firearms are unloaded during a cease-fire, and that no firearms are handled while any person is down range.

·         All restricted firearms shall be transported to the range facility unloaded, rendered inoperable by a secure locking device; and contained in a locked container that cannot readily be broken open.

·         Coming to and from the firing line, firearms are to be unloaded and completely clear of all ammunition. Firearms should not be handled or prepared for firing except at the firing line.

·         All firearms placed on the firing line bench shall have actions open until ready to fire.

·         Any firearms requiring maintenance shall be removed from the firing line to a designated safe area.

·         Keep the muzzle direction downrange at all times or under your control.

·         Keep the action of the firearm open at all times except when actually shooting.

·         Shoot only proper targets that have been approved by the club/range. At no time shall any member or guest discharge their firearm at target stands or frames, metal cans, glass bottles, or any such material that may cause dangerous debris or bullet ricochets.

·         All metal targets must be reactive (they must move or fall down when hit) and must be positioned at right angles to the firing line.

·         All shooters as well as all spectators within close proximity to the firing line must wear eye and ear protection at all times.

·         Never allow horseplay, careless handling of firearms, or any other distraction  while shooting is in progress.

·         Shooters on ranges 100 metres or longer shall use only target holders erected by the club/range. These shall be placed so that bullets will pass through the target and strike the backstop below midline.

·         Do not fire at any targets directly on the ground. Bullets striking the ground may be deflected over side berms and backstops.

·         No person impaired by alcohol or drugs shall be permitted to handle or discharge firearms on the club property.
