From the President's Corner

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

*** 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.


Keeping the Gate Closed and Locked

Please close and lock the gate when entering the range unless it is for a scheduled event.
Club members do not always close and lock the gate when entering or leaving the range. Leaving the gate unlocked permits non-members to enter the range. Non-members then get locked in and either calls a member for the combination or a member has to go to the range and unlock the gate. Or the non-member takes the fence down to drive out; then a member has to fix the fence. It may be an inconvenience to close and lock the gate when entering or leaving, but it's also an inconvenience to others when they have to take care of the resulting problems. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.


If you have any questions, please make sure to call, e-mail, or show up at monthly meeting which is every second Monday of the month currently at the ESE gun store here in Emmett (365-4272).
