CDWA and CPA Members are strongly encouraged to display their Membership Cards at the Range either on their person or with their shooting gear at the benches. Having a membership ensures you have the required insurance for range use. When signing in at the range, using your first name with your membership card number is acceptable.
This approved shooting range facility is for use by current members of the Castlegar and District Wildlife Association executive (and up to one guest supervised). Except for approved, alternate groups (by arrangement with the CDWA, such as law enforcement personnel) ALL OTHERS ARE TRESPASSING.
Safety and a clean, well-kept range are everyone's duty and responsibility. PLEASE clean up after shooting: remove all targets and pick up empty cases and live rounds.
EXPLODING TARGETS ARE FORBIDDEN FOR USE AT THE RANGE.
EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION ARE REQUIRED TO BE WORN BY EVERYONE ON THIS RANGE WHILE TARGET SHOOTING OR ACCOMPANYING SOMEONE SHOOTING.
. When entering the range, activate the warning sign on the driveway and ensure it is deactivated when the last shooter leaves the range.
. When more than one member is on the range, those present will designate A RANGE OFFICER who will be responsible for coordinating the shooting activities and by giving the commands "commence firing" and "cease fire and unload and show clear." The range officer will also be responsible for ensuring that all firearms are unloaded (actions open) when shooting ceases and that no firearm be handled when anyone is down range.
. Always treat every firearm as if it were loaded even when you think it is not.
. Keep the action of the firearm open except when actually shooting or storing the firearm.
. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
. When coming to and from the firing line, firearms are to be unloaded and clear of ammunition, and they are not to be uncased or cased or prepared for firing except at the firing line or at the designated "safe area."
. Your finger is always to be kept off the trigger until ready to shoot.
. After shooting never handle a firearm (except in the designated safety area NO AMMUNITION!) when someone is down range.
. Only the forward benches are to be used for bench-rest shooting. No shooting from the raised platform.
