Range Report

The range report was given by Rick Fowler. The range is in good shape. The camera system is still acting up. The contractor has indicated that they are going to need to pull new network cables. It is covered under warranty. The ranges are neat and clean. Brass should not be swept off the apron, but should be swept up and put in the provided containers. A workday is being planned for October 19, 2019. The lawn tractor needs to be serviced before the workday.

 

Old Business

 

Plate Rack: A solution to the splatter problem is stil being worked on.

First Aid Kits: The first aid kits are installed. The containers for the trauma kits have been painted, but need to be labeled.

 

 

Steel Target Shooting: The Executive Committee approved a revision to General Ranges Rules OPS.7 as follows:

 

FROM:

OPS.7 Steel targets on any range shall not be shot with steel core ammunition, shotgun slugs, magnum, +p, or +p+ ammunition, or any ammunition having a muzzle velocity greater than 3250 fps. Steel targets shall be shot only from an "established" firing line (see OPS.3) and shall be placed at least 15 yards from the firing line.

 

TO:

OPS.7 Steel targets on any range shall not be shot with steel core ammunition, shotgun slugs, magnum, +p, or +p+ ammunition, or any ammunition having a muzzle velocity greater than 3250 fps. Steel targets shall be shot only from an "established" firing line (see OPS.3) and shall be placed at least 15 yards from the firing line when using handguns or rimfire rifles or 100 yards when using center fire rifles (any firearm having a barrel length over 10 inches is considered to be a rifle).

 

Target Stands: Only a few of the more than 20 target stands can be located at the range. The Executive Committee approved having Chuck Novak manufacture 20 more. Anyone who inadvertently took a target stand home please return it.

 

New Business

 

Weeds on Fence: Chuck Novak recommended that we spray along the fences with a defoliant. We will need to have that done by a professional. Chuck Novak will get an estimate from a professional.

 

The meeting was adjourned at 7:26 PM.
