Rifle Range Rules and Regulations


  1. All General SRGC Rules will apply and must be observed.
  2. Our main rifle range has shooting points for 50, 100, 200 & 300 yard rifle practice 
  3. A range monitor must be present at all times when rifle practice is allowed!  Please schedule your appointments at least 24 hours in advance by emailing the Gun Club Manager at mars45@comcast.net .  300 yard practice is allowable only by prior appointment and if there is no one shooting on the shorter distance points.  Again, check with the Gun Club Manager to schedule appointments and questions.

  4. To maintain a safe environment, Range Monitor and Range Staff must be obeyed always!
  5. Range Monitor and Range Staff have the right to inspect all firearms, ammunition, and equipment.
  6. All basic safety rules set forth by the NRA, etc. are to be followed--this also applies to the handling of rifles where malfunctions, hang-fires, etc. occurs and are addressed in the NRA HP Rules.
  7. NRA High Power Practice is allowable on the 200 and 300 yard lines.  NRA High Power shooters may set up on the 200 yard line in front of the shooting benches when there are no other members shooting from the benches.  The Gun Club Manager will handle this issue during appointments to ensure that no conflicts occur.
  8. If any problem should occur with your weapon while on the firing line, leave the jammed or malfunctioning firearm pointed down range on the bench in the firing station and immediately contact the Range Monitor.
  9. Shooters are responsible for any and all damage to our range that comes from reckless, negligent, or careless shooting!
  10. Cross lane firing is strictly prohibited!  Shoot only at your own target within your designated lane always.
  11. Explicit permission from the Range Monitor is required to go forward of the firing line (e.g.,for brass pickup, to put up/take down targets, police trash, etc.
  12. Be sure you are using the correct ammo for your gun always!  Shotguns are allowed with slugs only.
  13. No one will be permitted on the range if they are under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any other intoxicating substances.
  14. Shooters under the age of 18 must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or legal guardian at all times.
  15. Only one loaded firearm is permitted at a single time by a single shooter.  No other gun handling is allowed behind the firing line.
  16. Immediately notify the Range Monitor of any unsafe practices on the Range.
  17. All Class III suppressed weapons must be checked in with the Range Monitor with the required federal stamp.  Suppressor use is permitted with the federal stamp. No full automatic fire is allowed, under the General Rules.
  18. If black powder weapons are used, never shoot anything else from your gun than black powder (or a "work-alike" such as Triple 7 or Pyrodex).  You are responsible for correct and safe use of your black powder weapon while on our property.
  19. Firearms brought onto the property must be unloaded and in a secure case/range bag prior to entering the facility.
  20. It is the shooter's responsibility to understand how to operate their firearms safely and ensure that they are in proper working order, as well as understanding all safety features prior to shooting.
  21. Upon the "CEASE FIRE" command from the Range Monitor, all shooters must stop shooting immediately, clear their weapon, put down the firearm facing toward the target, and step back from the firing line.  Shooters may return to the firing line only after the "ALL CLEAR" signal has been given.
  22. The Range Monitor reserves the right to prohibit any target that is deemed inappropriate or unsafe in their sole opinion.
  23. Always check with the Range Monitor if unsure if your firearm or ammunition is permitted.
  24. The Range Monitor reserves the right to reject or refuse service to anyone who inappropriately handles a firearm or would potentially endanger the safety of our patrons or staff.
  25. Please ask the Range Monitor for clarification if you have any questions on the Range Rules and Regulations.
  26. When going down range during a "cold" line condition, all guns must have their actions open, laid down on the shooting bench, and not handled until the range has been declared "hot" again by the Range Monitor.  Any violation of this rule will result in the member/their guest being asked to leave the range for the day.
  27. All weapons must be handled in such a way as to not point or "sweep" other persons or the Range Monitor with their weapon.  Violation of the rule is grounds for being asked to leave the rifle range!
  28. The rifle areas are fixed distance, paper target only areas!  Therefore, no cans, bottles, rocks, etc., may be used as targets.  Firing may only be done at a fixed distance of the range!
  29. Target frames and backers are provided for each berm.  Targets may ONLY be affixed to these by stapling ONE target to the center of the backer.  DO NOT slide any other apparatus over these frames.
  30. Every member is responsible for cleaning up their targets, etc. from these frames and their brass and shell casings after use.  Do not just leave your trash in the frames or on the ground!  There are trash cans provided for this purpose!  Your membership does not include the right to leave your trash for others to pick up!  Failure to observe this rule will result in a warning the first time and suspension of your membership for future infractions.
  31. Targets must be set to ensure that all bullets impact in such a way as to ensure that they stay on the property and cause no safety problem.  This requires that targets be set so that the top of the target is below the top of the berm which must be immediately behind the target.  Again, do not shoot "cross range", only down range and perpendicular to the firing line.  
  32. No vehicles are allowed on the Range unless the member has prior approval from the Gun Club Manager.
  33. Schedule activities have priority over all practice shooting!  This will be handled, for your convenience, when you email the Gun Club Manager regarding appointments to use the rifle range.
  34. Failure to comply with these rules of South River Gun Club is grounds for revoking range use privileges and/or membership!
