Merry Christmas Everyone !!!
HANDGUN ADVENTURE TRAIL
We just completed another successful shooting season. As we have always done
though we have now taken down the targets and the range is closed for practice
rounds. We will get the targets back up for practice rounds after all of the hunting
seasons are over in late February.
Just a reminder to get out to the range early to do your own sighting in, the longer you wait the more crowded things get. Members are of course welcome to use the range during our sight-in days but there usually are a lot of shooters on those days. As a member you may bring guests out to the range. There is a $3 range fee for each guest that should be deposited in the cash box BEFORE shooting begins..
Please make certain you are following ALL Range Safety Rules. If there is more than one shooter then one of you should act as the Range Officer to coordinate trips to check targets and to observe cease fires. REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO HANDLING OF ANY FIREARMS WHILE PEOPLE ARE DOWNRANGE DEALING WITH TARGETS.
SAVE OUR BACKSTOPS!!
We still have members who don’t seem to understand the rules for hanging targets on the target boards. All targets should be positioned in the center of the black target boards. The reason behind this is so that the wood cross bars do not get shot up. AT NO TIME SHOULD ANY TARGETS BE PLACED ON TOP OF THE WOOD CROSS BARS OR ATTACHED TO THE UPRIGHT POSTS!!!
Shots hitting the wood posts or cross bars cause extensive damage and raise your cost of maintaining the rifle range.
Likewise, at our pistol range, all targets should be centered on the 2 foot by 2 foot square target boards. This helps avoid shots hitting the cables. THE BOLTS AND WASHERS THAT ARE USED TO HANG THE TARGET BOARDS ARE NOT TARGETS!! Please do not aim for them – prove your shooting skills by hitting the bulls eye on your target.
We have been experiencing some minor problems with shooters here and ask for cooperation.
PLEASE DO NOT RAISE THE TARGETS ABOVE THE LEVEL WHERE THEY ARE SET BY THE RANGE MAINTENANCE CREW. WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE CABLE PROTECTED FROM ERRANT SHOTS AND HAVE RAISED THE CABLE, WE DID NOT LOWER THE TARGETS. DO NOT HANG ANYTHING ELSE FROM THE CABLE AS A TARGET (ONLY PAPER TARGETS PERMITTED) AND PLEASE CENTER YOUR TARGET ON THE BACKBOARD, THIS WILL HELP THEM LAST LONGER.
