The Trap Range is open to all members and the public at 5 PM each Tuesday evening. Last sign-up is 8 PM and all shooting ends by 9 PM. Squads are formed on a "first come, first served" basis or as mutually agreed.
GUN SAFETY IS ALL IMPORTANT!
Actions must be open and unloaded until the shooter is on the line. Chambers may be loaded when the squad begins firing but muzzles must stay pointed downrange. Actions may be closed only when the previous shooter has fired and it is YOUR turn.
When all shooters have fired 5 shots, the scorer will give the command for all to move to the next position. The shooter in the #1 position will check the line and announce "Ready on 1". The first shooter on the squad will then call for his bird.
The "first shooter" always begins the round regardless of his/her position in the firing line. The "first shooter" is the person who began the round at station 1.
Do not pick up empty hulls or move foward of the line until
the round (all shooters have fired 25 rounds) is over, all firearms are on "SAFE", and actions are open!
