Courtesy and common sense, along with the basic rules of safe gun handling, should prevail.
In the indoor range the target carrier shall be in the holder at the backstop when you shoot. If practicing defensive shooting and wishing to shoot at short range, you have to move the target all the way down and move forward of the booths to shoot. The wall is marked at various distances, especially 7 yards (21 feet) a normal defensive range.
All shooters shall be at the same distance. If multiple shooters are using the range and some want to shoot at 50 feet, everyone shall be shooting from the 50 foot booths.
If the targets are not run to the backstop, the bullet impact will be on the floor or the beams at the base of the curtain. This can cause ricochets and serious damage or injury. Stay in line with the position you are shooting as the backstop only covers the back wall, and if shooting sideways, the bullets will damage the wall and the turning target counterweights.
The ballistic curtain is tough and low velocity rounds sometimes do not penetrate. This can be worse in the area of repairs where the curtain is doubled. Low target velocity 38 specials and air rifle and BB gun shots can be ricochet back at the shooter like a slingshot. If one hears a thud after shooting, it is possible the curtain has fired back. Shoot those rounds outdoors and load more powder next time. This is the reason air rifles are not allowed in the range. Shooting glasses shall always be worn for protection from split or ejected hot casings.
The 4 switches on the left in the range control the booth and target lights. If there are only 2 or 3 shooters, please to use only the lights on one side of the range
Ventilation \ Heat
To operate the ventilation system, Turn the timer to the desired time. If you need the range warm, flip the switch to WINTER. If heat is not needed flip the switch to SUMMER. If there are only a couple shooting have the switch turned to low, If many are shooting, or the range is Smokey, flip the switch to high.
DO NOT TOUCH THE TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENTS
Failure to follow the rules could lead to higher membership fees
