  19. On the rifle range, set your target height so that the bullet impact is 200 yards or more. On the pistol bays, set your targets accordingly so that no projectile or shot will leave the range. Do not shoot over any berms.
  20. When multiple users are on the rifle range, coordinate line breaks among yourselves. Request a Cease Fire, at which time all shooters will leave firearms unloaded with actions open and step away from the benches. Once all shooters are away from the benches, call Range is Clear. Do not approach the benches or handle any firearms during this period. At this time shooters may proceed down range. Once finished downrange and it is confirmed everyone has returned from down range, call Range is Hot. Shooters may then proceed back to their shooting bench and resume shooting.

Subsequently, you may contact a Board Member and request a Board Review of the event if you are in disagreement of the range official’s decision.
