Safety Check Dates 2020

    (No safety checks currently scheduled while ranges are closed)

 

Safety checks are held on a cold range, so please leave your loaded carry guns in your car or at home.  All weapons must be cased until you are called to the firing line.

For the safety check, you will need to bring a center fire pistol, pistol case, 2 magazines, one box of ammo, eye protection and ear protection.  (For safety, no .45 FMJ ammo is permitted)

All competitions are done from the low ready or gun on table starting positions, so no holsters are permitted.

The league will follow the following schedule for:

If we are lucky enough to have a 5th Wednesday in a month, we will do something special (bowling pins, 3 Gun, head to head, or other).

A few reminders:

  • Please be aware of posted signs and instructions on using the range. They are posted for your safety. If you do not know what a squib is, please look it up or ask someone. A squib can happen with any caliber, including .22. Always keep you gun pointed down range and remember that ALL guns should be considered loaded at ALL times.

  • Please clean up your brass and put it in the brass baskets. Any live ammo including misfires should be put in the orange bucket. Also clean up your trash.

  • Please return the target stands to where they are stored and PULL your stables from the up rights.

 

Remember, safety first, have fun, and enjoy the summer. 

 

Please, if you use the outdoor pistol ranges be courteous. This means:

  • Pull your staples from the wooden target stands
