The following range policy

has been approved by the board of directors. 
Any violators may be dismissed from the membership of the club.

1.  ALL members must display their membership cards when using the ranges, except for the Trap and Skeet ranges and target matches.  This is to insure that only current members are using the facilities.  Members are encouraged to check any person on the ranges who is not displaying their card and report any violators to the officers or members of the board of directors of the club.

2.  The firing line for the 200 yard rifle/pistol range is the edge of the concrete floor on the overhead garage door side of the building.  The firing line extends laterally outward from the building on both sides of the building. The firing line for the rim fire/archery range is in line with the down range side of the concrete shooting benches along the edge of the black top.  All shooters should discharge their firearms from a close proximity to the rear of the firing line.  If you desire to change the range to your target, move the target, not your position on the line. When discharging firearms from inside the 200 yard range building, the muzzle of the firearm should be outside the building if at all possible to reduce the noise.

3.  When the range is in use, prior to anyone going down range from the firing line to post or remove targets or for any other reason, all firearms are to be unloaded, with the actions open and the safeties on.  Firearms should not be handled while someone is down range.

4.  All targets, should be placed so that bullets passing through the targets are directed toward the earth berms.  After shooting, all targets, backers and any other objects used to support the targets or target frames, should be removed from the range. No glass bottles are allowed to be used for targets.   Targets should be placed so that bullets do not strike the concrete or blacktop pads down range.

5.  At the completion of shooting, all trash ( used targets, target backers, cartridge boxes, coffee cups, paper bags, soft drink cans, etc. ) should be removed from the range and the range building and taken home.  Fired cartridge cases should be swept from the range building.  Any unwanted brass cartridge cases may be left in the cans provided at the ranges for sale by the club.  No aluminum or steel cases, or shotshells should be placed in the range cans.  The doors and windows on the 200 yard range building should be closed prior to leaving the range, unless the range is being used by other members.

6.  Targets are not to be posted on any telephone pole, fence post, fence, building or other such object on the club property.  No firearms targets are to be posted on the hay bales at the archery range.  Members are encouraged to bring a portable target holder to the range for their own use and remove it when departing the range area.

7.  No center fire firearms are to be used on the rimfire/archery range.  This is the range near the clubhouse with the concrete tower.

8.  No photographs, movies or photo recordings may be made of any member on the range without that members permission.  No person will take such photos or photo recordings by being forward of the firing line under any circumstances.
