Range Safety

We at North Buffalo prescribe to the NRA 3 Rules of gun safe handling which are:

1. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction

2. Always keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot

3. Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Apply these rules anytime you come in contact with a firearm. Here at North Buffalo down range is generally a safe direction. UP is never a safe direction because over the trees we have roads and houses and we need to make sure we contain the projectiles on the property.

Some other rules are KNOW your target and what’s beyond it, be sure your gun is safe to operate, wear eye and ear protection as appropriate, and store guns so that they are inaccessible to unauthorized individuals.

Never use alcohol or drugs before or during shooting.

Before moving downrange, make absolutely sure to announce your intentions to others on that range, and be sure they heard and acknowledge what you intend to do.

Targets are restricted to: paper, cardboard, wood, clay birds, tin cans, and soft plastic containers. No items that leave shards or household items.

When shooting is complete, you must clean up and dispose of all shell castings from where ever they land. Remove and dispose of all target materials and debris.
