FIREARM RANGE STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES

The Firearm Range Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are posted here for your use. They are detailed, and certainly all of that detail will not apply to every shooting session, but the detail is there to be referred to if needed. The level of detail is the result of careful reading and suggestion by a wide cross-section of BISC shooters and NRA guidelines. These SOPs have been approved by the membership and are in effect.  If you have any feedback on these SOPs, send your comments via email to info@BISCwa.org or bring them to any board meeting.

Work Party Safety

If work par­ties are intend­ing to be down range at any time MAKE CERTAIN that the yel­low cords with the “Range Closed” signs are placed across the open­ing to the range.   If there is work to be done on either the pis­tol or rifle range this may neces­si­tate the clo­sure of the trap range as well.  Please refer to Hot News for spe­cial range clo­sures.  Note: Work Party activ­i­ties may pre­empt the reg­u­larly sched­uled hours of oper­a­tion.  Please pay spe­cial note to the cal­en­dar and notices pub­lished in the News tab.

IMPORTANT:  Main­te­nance or con­struc­tion  work may pre­empt reg­u­larly sched­uled range hours and require the can­cel­la­tion of range oper­a­tions, includ­ing classes and gun com­pe­ti­tions and events. This might hap­pen on short notice depend­ing on the needs of the work group, and every effort will be made to avoid conflict.

Spe­cial Events

Spe­cial events on the  pis­tol, rifle, archery  and trap ranges may occur.   The events will be announced in the Newslet­ter  and detailed on our Spe­cial Events page.
