Range Safety Highlights


You MUST wear Safety Glasses AT ALL TIMES WHLILE ON THE RANGE.  This is a range requirement and is non negotiable.  Hearing protection is optional. 

There is a limited supply at the main office for purchase, but no guarantee. Bring your own. 

Your airgun MUST have an Empty Breech Indicator in place at all times your rifle is not shouldered and pointed down range.  We will provide them for you, or you can bring your own.   We take safety VERY seriously here at this range. Infractions may lead to your disqualification.   Unsportsmanlike behavior is absolutely not accepted. You will be asked to leave if you behave in a disruptive manner.  All safety decisions are final that are made by the Match Director.  You are responsible to review the Rio Salado Safety Rules listed in the Terms on the registration form.  You will be held accountable for these rules.   We will discuss this again at all the safety briefings.

For Springer rifles, there are different ways to demonstrate a safe rifle on the range. For break-barrels, cracking the barrel is acceptable.  Casing a rifle is another form of safety indication. For under/side-lever rifles, inserting a wooden dowel or safety cord through the barrel is acceptable. Your rifle is not to be cocked in order to be compliant. 



There will be restrooms located inside the airgun building.


We will have two club air tanks available. We'll fill your tanks for you for free. Make sure they are hydro'ed within 5 years and the tank is not older than 15 years.  


Everyone will get baseball caps! 


Your entry includes catered lunch after the match on Saturday.  We are anticipating BBQ brisket !!
