PROCEDURES AND SAFETY
may be carried loaded at all times on and off the course, so long as
the pistol is holstered. Rifles will only be loaded on the command of
a range officer. Rifles will be cleared in and out of each shooting
station. A safety violation (coming into a station with a rifle with
a loaded magazine inserted or a round in the chamber) will result in
your being asked to leave.
— at ranges requiring use of the rifle, you will be given the
command to “Make Ready.” This applies to your rifle, and
NOTHING else. It is not a free rest period, and it is not the place
to admin your gear, your mags, or anything else. “Make Ready,”
means load your rifle, and nothing else. Your ear protection should
already be on, your pistol should have already been prepped, and your
gear is whatever it is. Take care of your administrative tasks BEFORE
you enter a range.
with a loaded rifle
— On some ranges you will need to move with a loaded rifle. It
is a requirement that you put your rifle on safe before you begin
your movement from a firing position. So, before you start to rise
from whatever position you managed to contort yourself into, thumb
the thing to safe.
with a drawn pistol
— On some ranges you will need to move with your pistol in your
hand, which of course, is loaded. Some pistols don’t have
safeties. Don’t be stupid. Use the safety it has one. Keep the
thing safe and pointed down range.
Maximum time allowed at each shooting stage is 2 minutes.
— No shooting sticks, bipods and other shooting supports are
allowed save what nature (Larry) provides within the shooting areas.
will be shot from left to right on all stages unless you are told
