ALL MEMBERS SHOULD REALIZE THAT BELONGING TO THE

STILLWATER ROD AND GUN CLUB IS A PRIVILEGE THAT MOST

DO NOT HAVE.  YOUR ACTIONS CAN PROTECT IT - OR LOOSE IT.

General Rules-

On all days, there will be NO shooting before 8 AM or after dusk.

No alcohol or drugs are allowed on the range.

For the range, each member is allowed one guest; each guest is allowed one visit.

For hunting on club property, MEMBERS ONLY - no guests.

Eye and ear protection should be worn at all times when shooting is occurring.

Junior shooters must be under adult member supervision at all times.

Range Safety-

Members may be licensed by their home county or New York State to carry concealed and loaded, but when you enter the property of the Stillwater Rod and Gun Club, our rules state that your firearms are to be unloaded.

The first member in the building, on any given day, will be the Range Officer in charge of safety. When that member leaves, another member must take over the duty of Range Officer.

All firearms that are not actually in use on the firing lines must either be stored in a case (unloaded) or stored in the gun rack supplied for that purpose.

All firearms must be unloaded and placed in the gun racks with the actions open BEFORE anyone goes downrange to post, check, or retrieve any targets.

Firearms actually in shooters hands must be kept pointed downrange at all times.

Firearms are to be loaded only when the muzzle is pointed downrange and you are ready to shoot.

Always keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.

Targets MUST be placed in front of dirt berms and use proper targets and backers. NO CEMENT BLOCKS AS BACKERS. NO BOTTLES OR CANS AS TARGETS.

All targets should be NRA approved (paper, clay, or metal).

When posting, checking, or changing targets, all shooters will insure that the range area between the building and the targets is clear of people before firing re-commences.

Only the framed in-ground target stands are acceptable when backed by dirt berms. DO NOT place any targets on or near the backstop cross members. Attach all targets to the fiber panels - well away from frame members.

General Housekeeping-

Keep the range clear of harmful objects that could become projectiles during grass mowing or damage the mowing equipment.  Do not shoot at bottles, any non-biodegradable materials (like cement blocks etc.). 

Pick up after yourself, both inside the range building and outside on the lawns.

Do not bring any furniture into the club building(s) without the President's PRIOR approval. 

Sweep up all loose brass and other shell casings after your shooting is done.

Broom Sweeping will cause dust.  Cleaning the tables and chairs with a dusting cloth would be greatly appreciated.

If you notice a problem, contact a club officer to report the problem.

Any firearms or ammo left at the range building should be immediately reported to the President or another officer (see the LOST and FOUND signs for the number to call to report this or any problems noted).
