Policies & Procedures

Range Rules

There are no exceptions to these rules.  Please read the regulations and see your discipline chairman for more information.

We have found a number of cases where some of our steel targets have been damaged by high powered rifle.  In fact rounds shot through the steel, and is costing the Club a considerable amount of money for repairs, not to mention the danger.  AR-15’s, .308’s  and the like, will penetrate most steel targets.  Don’t shoot steel targets with High Powered Rifles. 

If your are caught breaking the rules you may lose all privileges, and billed for repairs.
