Follow all NRA Range Safety Rules. All shooters must wear proper eye protection. All persons present must wear proper hearing protection. Alcohol is prohibited on all Conservation Club Ranges. No shooting is allowed before 8:00 a.m. All shooting must stop at sunset. (Night firing is allowed only for law enforcement agencies conducting training/qualification).

Shooters must shoot only at paper targets. All firing must be downrange with great care taken to assure any projectile is stopped by the range backstop.

Shooters (except law enforcement personnel) must not discharge a firearm using full automatic fire. No tracer, armor-piercing, or incendiary rounds can be used.

NO SHOOTING AT AERIAL TARGETS. Shooting at clay targets is allowed only in the field northeast of the clubhouse (no shot larger than size 6 is permitted there). No shooting is allowed there during events at the clubhouse. No glass or other forms of breakable targets can be used.

Clean up cases/brass and put in cans provided or take home. Shooters must dispose of (transport away) any target material or holder they use. If you haul it in, haul it out. Small trash items can be placed in barrels. Do NOT stack items on the ground around the barrels. Clean up the range building and grounds before leaving.
