Every Rule Exists for Reason...

As stated in the WRRC Safety and Orientation Class, the range rules posted here (and at every range) exist to keep our club running safely and smoothly. As members you are held to a high standard of safety and range etiquette. Please behave accordingly. BEFORE BRINGING GUESTS TO THE RANGE GO OVER THESE RULES WITH THEM. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF YOUR GUESTS!





Members shall obey all Range Rules as posted and must follow the directions of Range Safety Officers (RSO's). Failure to follow RSO direction or violating Range rules shall lead to removal from range or complete removal from club membership.

  • Know your target and what lies beyond it.

Range Rules:

  • Follow the four firearm safety rules at all times while handling a firearm and wear ear protection and eye protection at all times while on the firing line.
