1. TREAT ALL FIREARM AS IF THEY ARE LOADED
2. NEVER POINT THE MUZZLE AT ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO SHOOT AND/ OR DESTROY
3. KNOW YOUR TARGET, BACKDROP, AND BEYOND
4. KEEP YOUR FINGER STRAIGHT AND OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOU ARE ON THE DESIGNATED TARGET AND HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO SHOOT.
RANGE SAFETY RULES:
- Safe muzzle direction.
- Unload only at designated location and times.
- Do not handle firearm on the line until range commands are given. Load only on command and only on the firing line.
- Do not anticipate commands, and never move forward of the line until all clear has been given and told to do so by the RSO (Range Safety Officer). In case of misfire of hang fire, keep gun pointed in a safe direction and raise support hand until RSO takes over.
- Do not attempt to conduct clearing techniques until further training has been given.
If a safety hazard is observed raise support hand or call cease fire, everyone regardless of training or experience is a safety observer and has the authority to stop an unsafe practice or observation.
- Do not break the 180 degree rule (Never turn toward another person on the line 90 degrees left or right.) Firearms shall be pointed downrange at all times, NEVER give a loaded weapon to a safety officer or other student. If the transfer of a firearm from one person to another is to happen it will be done as follows; pointed down range, unload and show that it is clear, leave the slide locked to the rear. Both visually and physically inspect the chamber and magazine well for rounds or magazine (3 times at least). Once the shooter is sure the weapon is safe, the person receiving the weapon will do the same steps all while pointing in a safe direction.
While on the range, all present will have approved eye and ear protection in accordance with OSHA regulation. It is recommended all shooters will wear long pants, long sleeve shirt and a hat (the bill of the hat will stop hot brass from becoming lodged between the shooter’s glasses and face/eyes) and a belt with a holster for safe handling on the range.
If a student has shown repeated willful negligence to the range safety rules and regulations they will be removed from the range. If a student is disruptive to the point it creates and unsafe environment the student will be removed. If a negligent discharge occurs the student will be removed.
If a student fails to follow critical range commands and instructions they will be removed. (All grounds for removal will be given to the students and signed prior to beginning the class.)
No refund will be given to a student removed for safety violations and a signature advising of such standards will be obtained prior to beginning the class.
