Range Rules Reminder PDF Print E-mail

RANGE RULE REMINDER - RANGE 2S is NOT FOR BLACKPOWDER RIFLES-

I have been asked twice in the last week about using Black Powder rifles on Range 2s. This is absolutely prohibited under normal conditions, ONLY shotguns can be used on range 2S. All Rifles, Black Power Rifles or Rifles firing pistol rounds (i.e. JR Carbine etc) must be used on Range 2. Of course we must work together not to overly inconvenience other shooters but with a little cooperation it can all be worked out with some compromise.

If there is enough interest in setting aside a regular time for the exclusive use of black powder rifle shooters to use Range 2 it is possible to book a range time for such a program. If you are interested in helping set up this or any other program please contact me, Scott at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will work with the Range Operator to work it out. We have a very diverse group of shooters in our membership and it is VERY important that they all feel they have access to our fantastic facilities to practice their sport.

** I just want to add on to this that pistols are not allowed on Range 2 regardless of caliber. They must be used on Ranges designated for pistol use such as Ranges 4 & 5

All the Range Rules can be found here: http://www.lfga.org/working/range
