4. All members must clearly communicate and receive an acknowledgment from others when declaring the range COLD or HOT. The lead person declaring the range cold is responsible for turning the red lights on, signaling that the range is COLD and it is safe to go downrange. That same person remains the lead until everyone is back behind the yellow safety line, the range is declared HOT, and the red light is turned off.
a) Paper or cardboard targets mounted on club target stands, placed at 25, 50, 75, 100, or 200 yards. No cans, bottles, boxes, etc. are permitted.
b) Clay shotgun targets (pigeons) may be used as targets and must be placed on the face of the impact berm, no higher than 48 inches, measured from the ground to the top of the target.
c) Personal target stands made from wood or PVC may be used and must be placed at 25, 50, 75, 100, or 200 yards. Personal target stands MUST be the same height as club target stands so that bullets will die in the impact berm.
d) Steel targets must be placed at the base of the 200-yard impact berm ONLY, for safety reasons (bullet splatter and ricochets), NO EXCEPTIONS. The top of metal swingers may not exceed 48" in height measured from the ground to the top of the metal. ONLY GTGC-APPROVED METAL TARGETS ARE ALLOWED that are made with 3/8” AR550 or 1/2" AR500 steel designed and placed in a manner to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of ricochets.
Note: At Club approved matches, events or training classes, you may see a deviation from the standard range rules. Please do not think that as a general member you can mimic these actions as the Match Directors, Event Coordinator, or Instructor have taken additional safety precautions ensuring that the bullets die in the berm and the participants act in a safe manner whereby a Variance has been granted by the Board of Directors that is specific to that match, event or training class. At no time does this variance apply to the general membership or any other match or event.
