Always treat every firearm as though it is ready to fire.
Only point a firearm at things you intend to destroy.
Your safety and the safety of those around you is ultimately your responsibility. These instructions do not encompass all scenarios or situations. You are required to exercise common sense and good decision making skills. If you see an unsafe act, call it out. If you get called out for an unsafe act, correct it.
There are many, many different kinds of firearms each with it’s own unique technical requirements, capabilities, and techniques. It’s impossible to detail them all here. Instead, we’ll focus on the practices that are common to all firearms.
Every range will have a Range Safety Officer (RSO). If the RSO gives any instructions that contradict these instructions, follow the RSO’s instructions. It’s the RSO’s job to make sure that the range is conducted safely.
