Guiding Principles: 

Weapons are to be pointed up, down, or downrange.

Keep your finger above the trigger and on the side of the gun unless you are ready to shoot.

Keep your weapon on safety unless you are shooting.

Load when you are ready to use your weapon, and load it appropriately for your purpose. 

We’re here to shoot, to have fun, to learn, to practice, and to challenge and help each other be better. Winning against others is not the principle goal. 

Holsters must securely fasten the pistol to your body, and cover the trigger. 

You and your gear are gonna get wet, dirty, and scratched. 

Help set up, clean up, tape targets, and reset stages. 

We shoot rain or shine. 

We start together with set up and briefing. We end together with debrief and cleanup. 

You can use any gun, optics, and accessories, so long as they are safe to use. 

Use the time from 9am to 10am to zero your weapons. 

In martial spirit, you should always attempt to seek cover and to stay low. 

Make friends and shout encouragement!

It’s okay to be slow.

If someone is struggling, help him or her improve. Maybe let them try your gear. That’s how we do things here. 

If you are new, do not fret. We’ll pair you up with an experienced shooter who can coach and mentor you. 

Bring snacks to share. 🙂

Camping is welcome. 

Dogs, families, and spectators are welcome. 

We regularly shoot in the dark. Prepare accordingly. 

Clean and put back weapons or magazines that you borrow.
