You are required to have eye protection, ear protection, weapon(s), ammunition and provide your own targets to attach to the stands and cardboard provided at the range or you may use your own stands.

We generally will shoot handguns and/or long guns at Bay 2 (50 yard max.), three sets, check our targets between sets and police our brass before signing out, securing the property and returning to Sun City West. Those individuals shooting long guns in excess of 50 yards can fire at Bay 1 (100 yard max.). 

NRA Range Safety Rules will apply:

UPON THE COMMAND TO “CEASE FIRE” CLEAR THE CHAMBER AND THE WEAPON. STEP AWAY FROM THE FIRING LINE. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR WEAPONS OR ANYTHING IN THE SHOOTING BAY. 

WHEN CONFIRMED THAT ALL IS CLEAR WE MAY GO DOWN RANGE TO CHECK OR REPLACE THE TARGETS. STAY AWAY FROM YOUR WEAPON UNTIL THE COMMAND “THE RANGE IS HOT, COMMENCE FIRE” IS CALLED.
