2. Keep finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

3. Before walking down range to check your target, firing line must be safe. All firearms are checked to insure that the safety is on, the action open, no bullet in the chamber, clips and magazines are removed, and the cylinder is open and unloaded. Always interact with range companions so that everyone is aware of what is taking place.

4. All fire shall be deliberate, and controlled. Any observed practice which could be considered unsafe may result in immediate suspension of range privileges.

Shotgun Patterning Board:

We have erected a steel plate shotgun patterning board at the club in front of the old Turkey Shoot backstop.  A can of orange landscape paint is located in the shed to refresh the pattern board after a shot. Orange landscape paint is located on the right hand side wall of the shed. Please use ONLY this paint. Lead shot only (#4 & up.)

PLEASE  DO NOT SHOOT AT THIS STEEL WITH ANYTHING BUT A SHOTGUN WITH LEAD SHOT ( NO SLUGS EITHER ) PLEASE – SHOTGUN ONLY It is a patterning board — not a target
