    Didn't know he had passed, last I heard he was recovering from hip surgery and had retired. Bummer.

    I could have sworn I'd seen a post about it but maybe it was the one where his wife had died. Might have been on another forum but I can't find it now so I redacted my post. Fat lotta good it's done ... Lol

    It’s the “drawing a loaded weapon from the holster” that isn’t allowed on the general firing line. Too many ADs.

    Along the same line, we also expect our rifle shooters to pull unloaded firearms from their cases; same idea when it comes to pistols. It is also very difficult to regulate which holsters would be allowed, how they’re worn, etc.

    We are working in a fix, though, for those who wish to practice their draw and presentation. For guys that want to shoot from the bench, we treat it he same as if they’re coming out to shoot a rifle - not loaded when transiting through the building to the firing line.

    Good questions!

    And I’m really pleased that so many of you are asking questions about why we are doing what we’re doing. We’ve been actively taking customer feedback, and when safety permits, we make a few changes.

    Do your range allow shotgun? If not is there any reason why?

    Shots not hitting the point of aim are negligent discharges, and yes they do happen. It’s the ranges responsibility to mitigate those by whatever method is required.

    We do too. Each shooter must attend a training session that requires a walk through by an instructor to not shoot this, while pointing out what one can shoot.
    Interesting thing that happens on our range; on the 100 yd bay, the shooters shot up the target frames, etc.
    on the 300 yd bay, there is not a single bullet hole in the frame. It seems the longer range shooters have more respect?
