Forest Lake Sportsmen’s Club operates as a “COLD RANGE“. This means that all firearms are to remain unloaded until under the direction of a Range Safety Officer. When in the parking lot do not handle your guns. Do not let your buddies handle you guns.
Handguns are to remain cased and only uncased and holstered at the designated SAFETY AREA. Do not get out of your car with your competition gun already in its holster. If you arrive with a ‘hot’ carry gun find someone in charge and have them assist with clearing the gun.
Long guns need to be carried with actions open and safety on. Chamber flags can be used. If you have a cart, uncase your long guns at the car and immediately place them in your cart racks. Any and all manipulation and maintenance can be done at the SAFETY AREA.
There is no handling of ammunition at the SAFETY AREAS.
If you are uncertain how to proceed please ask, Action Shooting has a great history of safety for a good reason.
HANDLE YOUR FIREARMS ONLY UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE RANGE OFFICER.
Failure to follow these and general will be grounds for a DISQUALIFICATION.
