  • LICENSED AND UNLICENSED GUESTS

NO EXCEPTIONS

     

    Unlicensed guest should not be given a fully loaded magazine, they should be shown to load one bullet at a time.  Unlicensed guests are not permitted to rapid fire or double tap under any circumstances. At all times the PAL holder must be within arms reach of the unlicensed guest, this means that the member or licensed PAL holder may not shoot, step to the next bench, load magazines or be distracted in any manner while the unlicensed person is shooting.  In addition to your total attention on your unlicensed guest/family, you will NOT pass a loaded firearm at any time.  It is your responsibility for your guests’ safety and understanding of range rules
