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 boundaries. Cross-firing at targets is not acceptable.  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 anfd full auto firing of any firearms is not permitted
• Clay targets are allowed.
• All shooters must carry out their own refuse.

• Range use is limited to daylight hours only
•Shooting after dark is not allowed

• 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 and 100 yards with a rifle.   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.
