GUN HANDLING RULES

 

Safe gun handling is a combination of sound logical personal behavior, common sense and courtesy. Adherence to this plan by all members is mandatory and flagrant disregard for these procedures will result in disciplinary action and possible loss of membership privileges. We must be certain that safe conditions prevail so that no person sustains serious injury while at our range. 

 

  1. ALWAYS KEEP GUN POINTED IN SAFE DIRECTION.

  2. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER AND OUTSIDE THE TRIGGER GUARD UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

  3. ALWAYS KEEP THE ACTION OPEN AND THE FIREARM UNLOADED UNTIL READY TO USE

  4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT IS BEYOND. WHEN ON THE SHOOTING RANGE BE MINDFUL OF ADJACENT AREAS AND ACT ACCORDINGLY.

  5. BE SURE THE GUN IS SAFE TO OPERATE.

  6. KNOW HOW TO USE THE GUN SAFELY.

  7. USE ONLY THE CORRECT AMMUNITION FOR YOUR GUN. WHEN AT THE RANGE WITH MORE THAN ONE GUN, USE ONLY ONE AT A TIME AND WHEN FINISHED, STORE THAT FIREARM AND AMMUNITION BEFORE USING THE NEXT ONE.

  8. WEAR EAR AND EYE PROTECTION.

  9. NEVER USE ALCOHOL OR DRUGS BEFORE OR WHILE SHOOTING.

  10.  STORE GUNS SO THEY ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE TO UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS.
