A small bore rifle (.22 cal) and pistol caliber 50-25-foot range is located in the basement. There are four shooting positions, each with an independently controlled target holder that can be brought forward or sent down range by individual shooters as needed by use of control wheels mounted on the wall behind the shooting line. All shooters must wear protective eye wear and hearing protectors when using the range. Additional range rules are listed below.
Range Opening, Use, Guest Policy, and Closing Procedures
Range Operating Hours are no earlier then 8:00 AM and no later then 8:00PM Monday through Friday and weekends including all holidays
You are your own safety officer, the first member to open the range is the Safety Officer, if in a group appoint a member to this position, if you are there with others you do not know, challenge them to ensure they are members or accompanied by a member and inform them you are the Safety Officer (there should be no non-members there unescorted). Should you encounter this situation ask them who authorized them to be there then ask them to leave immediately. Report this information to Fred Gallant. If you depart prior to the remaining shooters, one of the remaining members must accept responsibility for Safety Officer, if not, the range will be closed and cleared before you leave.
Acting Safety Officers control what goes on at the range at all times, their word is final, non-compliance will result in immediate termination of that shooting session and may result in revocation of Club membership and privileges
The Safety Officer will ensure
Members can safely shoot and supervise one guest within the confines of the range. If you have more than one guest one must remain outside the immediate range area i.e. outside the closed range door. Once one guest has fired and the range is safe the guests can exchange places and firing can commence. If there is another member shooting on the range AND they agree to supervise the second guest then two guests plus the host can shoot at the same time. Members are advised to pay strict attention to the actions of minors and inexperienced shooters.
Strict compliance with the above procedures will ensure continued range usage for all, failure to comply will put ALL members’ privileges at risk!!!!
