Safety on our range

The first thing you must do when you arrive is to unload your firearms at the unloading bay by the gate. Even if you know that a firearm is unloaded use the unloading bay to double check.

All members and guests are expected to follow our range safety rules while using our facilities. These rules are in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of everyone who comes onto our range. In addition to the rules everyone on the range must follow the instructions of range officers and notices posted on signs.

Here are some guidelines to enjoy our facilities safely:

  • Keep your firearms unloaded while on the premises. If you arrive with a loaded firearm you must unload it at the unloading bay by the gate. A range officer will give you the oppurtunity to load your firearm before shooting and will ensure that it is unloaded after shooting. You must never load a firearm at the designated safe area. If a malfunction occurs that prevents you from unloading a firearm immediately seek the instruction of a range officer.
  • Firearms must be carried in a suitable holster, bag or case. A firearm must not be removed from its holster, bag or case unless at the designated safe area or on the instruction of a range officer. When you are on the firing line you must wait for the range officer to give you the instruction to handle a firearm.
  • When you do handle a firearm always be mindful of where you are pointing the muzzle. You must never point the muzzle at any part of your body or that of anybody else. Never point the muzzle above the back stop or side walls. This includes when shooting, loading, unloading, clearing malfunctions or otherwise any other time you handle a firearm.
  • Do not arrive intoxicated or otherwise impaired by alcohol, narcotics or medication. No alcohol may be consumed on the premises while shooting is in progress.
  • Always use eye and hearing protection.
