    Our range is in danger of being closed forever! The property owner to the north and west has bullet holes in his grain elevators and a broken pickup windshield. He also reported that while he is plowing, gunfire will be coming from our range and he can see puffs of dirt in the field while he is working. He believes they are bullets. He has stated that if it did not stop, the range will be shut down. And if anyone on his property was injured, he would sue the RRRPC club. It is possible that he could shut our range down for good!

    There has also been a considerable amount of range damage and vandalism costing members thousands of dollars. This is why there will be a vigorous effort to enforce all the rules in the coming year. Read the rules before you shoot. Our goal is to provide a safe and secure range environment.

    Here are some rules that we hope you pay close attention to:

    1.     You can NOT set targets on top of any berm. No exceptions.

    2.     All targets must be shot within the designed impact areas. Read the rules for a detailed explanation.

    3.     Don’t bring your junk to the range for target practice.

    4.     No targets can be placed on the metal silhouette stands left of the road unless approved by the Range Officer.

    5.     Those who shoot bullets off the range or shoot at club property will be prosecuted to fullest extent possible by law. This includes driving on or disfiguring the berms.

    6.     You must wear your current RRRPC badge while at the range.

    7.     You must accompany and supervise your guest.

    8.     You must pick up all trash and debris that you brought with you, shot at or just fell out of your vehicle. Take this trash with you or deposit it properly inside a trash receptacle. If the trash can is full, take it home.
