Shooting is Fun! Be safe on the range. Follow the four simple rules: Remember to always treat every firearm as if it were loaded, keep the gun pointed in a safe direction, always keep your fingers off the trigger until ready to shoot, be sure of your target both in front and beyond it. Additionally, wear eye and ear protection, never use alcohol or over the counter or prescriptive drugs while or before shooting. Please clean up spent casings and trash. If you see something in need of repair or that may be a safety hazard, please report it to a club officer, board member, or committee member.
