Range Etiquette

  • Handguns to be brought to the firing line in a case.

  • No handling of firearms when there are people downrange or the Range is Clear command has been given.

  • Firearm unloaded, and action open. In the case of handguns, they are holstered if you are wearing such.

  • Muzzle direction downrange at all times.

  • Do not place targets over support poles.

  • If using portable target stands return them to the hangers under the bay cover.

  • Remove targets from stands when finished shooting. Clean up any debris that is downrange.

  • If long guns are not cased when you arrive at range, and if others are present, have range officer call for a “Cease-fire” and call “Range Clear” while you take up a shooting position.

  • Do not handle anyone else’s firearm without their approval.

  • If you bring along pets, keep them on leashes or under control at all times. Give careful consideration to bringing a pet to a shooting range. Remember that shooting may hurt your pet’s hearing the same way it may hurt yours. Pets that scavenge (eat things that may or may not be food) should not come to a shooting range with you. Be aware that pets unused to gunfire might panic on a range.

Range Commands

  • Cease fire – Cease firing and await further instructions

  • Unload show clear – Unload firearm, remove magazine, open action with firearm laying on its side on bench or in its case. Move away from firearm.

  • Range is clear – At this time if a new shooter is taking up a position, it is safe to do so. Or shooters can then proceed down range to check and patch or replace targets.

  • Range is active – At this time firing can commence.
