RIFLE RANGE RULES
Rifle Range Rules:
- The RED and GREEN light system on the rifle range must be observed. A verbal response shall be given by each shooter to acknowledge the intent of clearing the firing line. No one is permitted beyond the firing line until the firing line has been confirmed clear and the light has turned green (cold).
- CLEAR = all guns shall have their actions visibly open in such a manner that any prudent person could tell the weapon is safe. Magazines shall be removed or emptied (when removing is not an option).
- Likewise, the firing line shall remain green (cold) until all person(s) are behind the firing line and have verbally communicated that they are ready to go Red (Hot). Once the Red (Hot) light has been established firearms may be loaded.
- Shooters shall grant new arrivals access to place their targets within a reasonable amount of time. When necessary shooters shall relinquish their place on the firing line every 30 minutes to accommodate other waiting members.
- Only paper targets and frangible objects such as clay birds, along with soda cans and plastic drink bottles may be shot on the rifle range. ALL targets and any debris created by those targets must be removed upon completion of shooting. No steel target other than those provided by the CVWC.
- Hearing protection is required while the rifle range is “Hot”. Eye protection is suggested.
- Always keep muzzle pointed in a safe direction – no exceptions!
- Do not crossfire (including the steel plate). Engagement of the steel targets shall be at 90 deg.
- Do not place any targets on the ground or the protective berms.
- No parking behind the range house. This area is for loading and unloading gear into and out of member vehicles.
- Rifle Range color code by sections: Your firing position color code must correspond with your target and your target holder frame number must correspond with your bench number. If you are firing from bench 9 your target frame must be adjacent to the #9 on the frame holder.
