In response to member inquiries, the Executive Committee has decided to allow Range User Course certified members to shoot on Range 10 the same as they do on the lower ranges (R3-R6). Although a long-standing request, the concern has always been that Range 10’s shots can overlap on the end of Range 7 which would risk Range 7 users putting up targets.
In discussion with the Range Master, we will be implementing a process to make sure both ranges coordinate cease fires. This is achievable through the cease fire command from Range 7 and through radios and our video system.
RUC certified-members will be given specific instructions so that we can make this new rule succeed and so that all members can still shoot safely. As always, RUC members MUST sign into ranges so that ROs know who is using them.
There will be no change for non-RUC members wishing to shoot on R10. They will still require direct supervision of a Range Officer.
