Shooting Range To Do List:

Environmental Practices
  • Grant funding may be available to improve the backstop to contain spent ammunition and attenuate noise levels.
  • Berm can be made to funnel lead into a containment area from which it can be removed.
  • Fill could be added if necessary.
Safety Improvements
  • A range hot flag and it's use should be implemented.
  • An established firing line should be established (rope, logs, chalk, spray paint, etc).
  • Additional table space or racks should be created to store guns while not in use.

Gun Safety Guidelines

The 12 Golden rules for Safe Gun Handling
  • Always treat the gun as loaded.
  • Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
  • Always keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  • Always keep the gun unloaded until you are ready to use it.
  • Never point the gun at anything you don't intend to destroy.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
  • Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the gun you are using.
  • Always use proper Ammunition.
  • Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before loading and shooting.
  • If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, hold your shooting position for several seconds; then with the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, carefully unload the gun.
  • Don't rely on the gun's safety to keep it from firing.
  • Be aware of your surroundings when handling guns so you don't trip or lose your balance and accidentally point and/or fire the gun at anyone or anything.
Range Safety
  • Follow the 12 golden rules.
  • Know and follow all the rules of the Shooting Range.
