    • Check-out the NEW Rules proposed by the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) for the National Service Pistol Matches (Click Here)

    • Important SAFETY Measures!...
      • It is important that when using the lower range; that you post your targets on the stands in front of the back stops!!!
      • If you set targets up close to the shooting benches your bullets will ricochet off the flat ground; going who knows where!  “SAFETY IS A MUST”
    • Please!!! NO shooting of bottleneck rounds (including .223 rounds) on the UPPER Range!!
    • Please remember to PICK UP ALL of your Rounds and casings..  NO rifle-bottle neck round on the pistol range!  Leave the area cleaner that the way you found it!
    • Please:  NO "midnight shooting"  The ranges are open from sunup to sunset.  No shooting using car headlights etc.  (Late night Fishing is OK for members).

    • All RANGE are for MEMBERS and immediate family members ONLY.  The lower Range is open as long as there is NO activity on the farm field.  Please use caution;  Remember, NO glass, Cinder blocks, shooting at picnic tables, or Trash... pick up ALL trash (not just yours) before you leave.  It is everyone's duty to keep it clean.
    • Pond: The pond is catch and release only. We pay to have this pond stocked! THANKS!

    • Range SAFETY:  Common sense and Safety!  No Glass, concrete block, cylinder blocks, etc.  If you see trash on the range, clean it up.
      (MEMBERS and immediate family members ONLY!)
    •  Gun Safety must be practiced on the range:
      •  A gun is always treated as if it were loaded. 
      •  The gun is always pointed down range. 
      •  Finger off the trigger until clearance to shoot.
      •  Keep the action OPEN when pausing or going down range to set up targets.
      •  No Horseplay!
    • CHL / CCW Classes offered by Dean Henry, John Weslow, and Craig Robbins, on a regular basis.                   
        • John Weslow see http://www.safetypromises.com/ for CCW class details.
        • Dean Henry - deanhenry@bright.net/(419)448-4575  (See Deans legal updates page.... and the Ohio laws compared to other states)  CCW cleanup legislation is moving thru OH legislature at lightning speed; it is a good thing; Don't need to have a CCW license to have a concealed hand gun in one's home.  With the increasing break-ins, gun sales are brisk.  "Shooting classes" are disparately needed for the general public.
