EVERYONE, PLEASE READ THE SAFETY 1st BULLET POINTS BELOW...
What do I need to know and bring?
All BGSL and Pistol Pit rules (click here for link) are in effect, unless under the direct one-on-one supervision of your Range Officer (R.O.). Everyone is expected to know these!
This is a COLD RANGE, you should never have ammo and/or magazine in a firearm at the match unless you are under the direct one-on-one supervision of an R.O. and shooting a stage.
Empty Chamber Indicators (ECI) are required for long guns. You may purchase one for $1each.
All long guns should be carried with muzzle pointing straight up in the air, with ECI in place.
Pistols should always remain in holster unless in safe area or under the direct one-on-one supervision of an R.O. while shooting a stage.
While loading and unloading (under the direct one-on-one supervision of the R.O.), keep muzzle pointed at the middle of the berm! DO NOT point muzzle at gravel/ground or over berm while loading/unloading.
Any safety questions or situations should be immediately notify the R.O. and match director. It is always better to ask than to guess!
Ammo. No magnum, steel (duck loads) or turkey loaded shot shells! It is hard on our targets and more expensive for you. Not to mention LOUD! :) Cheap stuff works great if it runs in your gun.
What to Bring?
1st things 1st, bring some water (cooler?) and a snack or two.
Bring some work gloves for helping before and after the match. Volunteer sport! No one is getting paid out here! Match director will be there at 8am, please come help set up before 8:30am (if you can't make it before 8:30, get here when you can). Everyone is required tear down 2 stages, or just your last stage, if all the other stages are already tore down. We all what to get home A.S.A.P. on a Saturday after the blasting is done! It takes 20min if everyone pitches in!
Usually less but experienced shooters bring...100 rds pistol, 100 rds rifle 75 rds shot and 10 rds slugs. Always bring extra, sometimes you may have to re-shoot a stage.
A pistol - min 3 magazines with 2 or 3 mag pouches, secure belt and secure side holster (you will be moving with a loaded pistol in your belt, "dropsy's" of a loaded pistol is auto disqualification and you go home.
A shotgun - with some type of ammo carrier (belt shell carrier, sidesaddle, ammo belt, arm belt, or combo (I recommend belt ammo carrier or chest/waist "two loader" rig).... or you can use your pockets...not too fast though). Empty Chamber Indicator (ECI).
A rifle - min 2 magazines (usually 30rd). Rifle mag holders are nice (not required). ECI.
3 Gun Etiquette and Expectations of the Participates
Help reduce the non-shooting time for everyone at a match. Some stages require more re-set than others, especially 3 GUN. Don't stand around while others are re-setting. Etiquette is that the 2 Range Officers and the scorekeeper are scoring the stage and handling firearms, the shooter is reviewing their scores, the shooter on deck is rehearsing, and the last shooter is reloading his mags/belt ammo holders, everyone else should be pasting, resetting movers/steel, and picking up brass. One person not doing their part on a smaller squad can back up the whole match.
Be aware of who is shooting next and try not to distract them from getting ready to shoot. You should know the shooting order. Be ready to shoot. Have your mags/belt loaded and be mentally ready to go. If you for some reason you are not ready let the RO know, and ask to be skipped. This is OK every now and then (the shooter behind you may not be ready because they were expecting you to shoot)
If you get Disqualified for the 180 or unsafe firearm handling. Stay and help out with re-set and tear down (unless you shot someone (just kidding!)). We all get DQ'd if you shoot long enough. It's embarrassing but not the end of the world.
