REMEMBER:

4. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER AND OUT OF THE TRIGGER GUARD UNTIL YOU ARE ON TARGET AND READY TO FIRE.


Safety Rules
The Board of Directors will carry out this policy by adopting and enforcing range rules which are adequate, reasonable and enforceable. These rules replace and supersede all previous range rules. The Board of Directors may revise and further define these rules in the future.

Discipline and Enforcement
Membership is a privilege with a responsibility. Shooting is also a privilege with a responsibility. Every member has a responsibility to be familiar with, understand, follow and help enforce these rules. Willful or negligent disregard for any of these rules will result in disciplinary action up to and including expulsion from the Club and possible civil penalties. THESE RULES WILL BE ENFORCED.

Certification to Shoot on the General Outdoor Range
Before any member is permitted to shoot, he or she must be certified to shoot. That involves reviewing this safety policy and range rules with someone designated by the BOD, as well as demonstrating the safety rules listed at the end of this booklet. When the designated member is confident the uncertified member understands and intends to obey the rules, he or she certifies that member to shoot.

Certification to Shoot Automatic Firearms
No firearm may be fired on BCC&GC club property in a fully automatic mode.
