The proper use of the Rifle Range

The rifle range produces most of the long range noise.

In order to be a good neighbor the Waterford F&G built at our own cost a noise reduction system. In order for it to work, we ask our members to use this range the proper way.

Do not shoot from the left side of the black line drawn in this picture, meaning in front of the tables.

Do NOT move the tables forward into the “No shooting zone”.

Do not shoot in front of the structure.

Please regard the other usage rules of this range regarding the target placement.

Please be aware if there are people visiting the cemetery. Out of respect cease fire until they leave.

In order that there is sufficient light to shoot with open sights the WF&G installed lighting which will be on during operation hours. These lights are LED lights with low electricity usage at a yearly cost of $2.50!

SAFETY FIRST and always be a good neighbor!
