BCR Range Rules

Like all established ranges, BCR has adopted a few rules that all range visitors must follow. These rules are in place to enhance your shooting experience while maintaining safe shooting conditions for everyone.

Here's what you need to know when you arrive at BCR: 

1. Upon arrival, drive down the hill, cross Black's Creek and check in with the Range Officer at the main range.
2. Once you've checked in and paid any fees, unload your shooting gear.
3. No alcoholic beverages, intoxicated persons, unattended/unruly children or pets are permitted on the range.
4. Ear protection must be worn within 25 feet of the firing line.
5. Eye protection must be worn on the firing line.
6. Smoking is not permitted within 10 feet of the firing line.
7. Because of the concrete floors, firearm muzzles must be pointed downrange or in the air at all times.
8. All loading of firearms must be done at the firing line (muzzleloaders can load at the back bench, but may cap or prime only at the firing line).
9. When the range is closed, firearms must remain unloaded with actions open or chamber flags inserted.
10. All work on firearms must be done at the firing line and only when the range is open.
11. Notify the Range Officer if you have a malfunction.
12. Unload firearms before removing them from the firing line.
13. Clean your shooting area when finished shooting.
14. No fully automatic rifles or pistols or those having devices that allow full auto operation are allowed at the range.
15. Shotgun patterning is allowed if the shooter provides their own target frame and target.
