8-11-15 > We removed the steel knockdown targets from the pistol range on August 31st for the months of Sept and Oct. This is something we do every year at this time to protect them from being shot by high powered rifles during sight in season. We will be putting them back on the range on Nov 1st. See Help Projects above if you wish to help with this.
Check the calendar below. Please check the calendar for range use before going up,
some bays are reserved for training or club events.
Take a few minutes and refresh yourself with the Gem County Rod and Gun Club Safety Rules. These are a few of the rules that you need to keep in mind when using the range:
NO pets on range out of vehicle
NO Beer or any Alcohol on the range
NO unattended children under 12
No steel core bullets are to be used at the range during the timeframe of April 30 to November 1.
*** Use eye protection! Use of safety glasses is especially important if the steel knock down targets are being used as targets. Fragments from the bullet can and do ricochet off of steel going in all directions. Protect your eyes and the eyes of those in your group, whether or not they are shooting.
*** Use Hearing protection!
*** Downrange: No one should be handling an uncased firearm when others are downrange of them.
*** 180 Rule: Never break the 180 degree rule by pointing your firearm to the side or behind you when at the firing line.
*** Loading Safety: Load or re-load your pistol only when on the firing line.
*** Earth Berms: No one is to be on the berms, this is an unsafe area.
Please close and lock the gate when entering the range unless it is for a scheduled event.
