Skyway Trap & Skeet Club Range Safety and Club Rules

 

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.


2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

 

4. Keep the action open at all times, until it is your turn to shoot.

 

5. Never load your gun until you are on post and ready to shoot.

 

6. Never load more than one shell (two shells are allowed for Double Trap, Wobble Trap or Skeet).

 

7. Keep action open and gun unloaded when moving between the gun rack and the shooting station or when moving between stations.

 

8. Never walk in front of another shooter when changing posts.

9.  Everyone on property must sign in at front register, parents must sign for minors.

10. Only steel shot allowed, no larger than #7 size. (target loads only)



11. Management must check and approve all shells purchased or re-loaded off-site.  Periodic spot checks will be conducted.

 

12. Always use appropriate eye and ear protection. 

 

13. Alcohol and drugs which impair judgment shall not be consumed prior to or during shooting. 

 

14. Only Management approved designated pullers are allowed to load machines and pull targets for patrons. 

 

15. In the event of weak report or misfire, check your barrel for obstructions. (Barrel sticks are available to clear the barrel.)

 

16. Any threats,  misrepresentation by innuendo or direct contact, verbal or physical abuse, profanity,  aggressive behavior, alcohol or drug use before or during shooting may result in expulsion from club and actions up to and including revocation of membership.

 

17.  Final rounds of the day must begin 30 minutes prior to closing time.
