Range use
Only approved targets are allowed. 
• Projectile/bullet containment. It is the 
ultimate responsibility of every shooter to 
ensure that the projectiles fired on their
range are contained within property 
boundaries. Cross-firing at targets, not 
directly in front of the shooter, is unsafe 
and is not permitted.
• Shooting will be permitted at standard 
paper targets only. Shooting at glass 
objects, exploding targets, pyrotechnic 
devices, etc. is prohibited. 
• All targets should be secured on the
 target frames set downrange. 
• Personal target holders/frames are allowed but should be removed by the 
shooter when finished.
• Shooting shotguns at target holders is not allowed. It destroys the target backer
(this is where you tape your targets) and ruins it for the next shooter.

• Uncontrolled rapid fire of any firearms is not permitted
• Clay targets are allowed.
• All shooters must carry out their own refuse. 

• Tannerite and other binary explosives are not allowed. 
• Shooters should remove all targets and litter from the range at the end of their shooting session. This includes all spent shotgun hulls and centerfire casings.

Shooting steel gongs
• Minimum recommended shooting distance with a handgun is 25 yards. It is always better to shoot from farther away and move in closer while checking targets for impact damage. 
• Minimum recommended shooting distance with a rifle is 100 yards. It is always better to shoot from farther away and move in closer while checking targets for impact damage, such as cratering.
• Be extremely cautious when shooting full metal jackets in calibers like 7.62x39 or higher at steel targets.

Random Shots
Help us prevent target holder damage
Front side - the frame is deep with the target holder at the rear.
Backside - the target holder is inside a channel that holds it in place.
​Please do not move target holders.

By moving a target holder away from a safety berm you may create a shooting scenario that is unsafe. Berms are in place to catch bullets.

By placing it the wrong way you can cause damage to the channel that holds the board with the target on it. When the channel is damaged we cannot change targets until it is repaired.

​Thanks for your help.
Be aware of dry conditions. 
If you smoke, make sure you put out your cigarettes. 
Tracer ammunition is not allowed at the range. 
Shooting is not allowed after dark.
