No one may do any type of shooting that extends beyound basic zeroing into any informal 'competition' territory, as certified & registered ROs are not present. So no just having a go against your friends!


Really...you guys don't realise how lucky you are>Cherish & protect those rights!
Come on up and lets shoot! Over 1000 acres to choose from and no one will bother us. As a matter of fact, I will probably go do some shooting a bit later today. Cheers mate!

My range allows rapid fire. You just need to inform the Range Office and allow him to observe while you do it. He'll explain before you start that IF all your rounds are on target, you'll be allowed to continue, IF there not on target, you'll be restricted to slow fire.

Seems reasonable and works for me...

That's the way they should all be, sounds reasonable to me as well

Pretty much a definition of heaven, heh. Please, shred some targets for me by all means

When you say rapid fire you are referring to quick, successive trigger pulls right, not some yocal with his thumb in his beltloop trying to bump an AR to full auto. Have seen that and it always looks like uncontrolled fire, even worse with a handgun.

Yes, quick, successive trigger pulls. No Belt loop bump fire.

My son showed me a video of this bump fire stuff on your tube. I told him if he tried it with my guns it would be the last time he shot them.

Reading all this just makes me realize how fortunate I am to frequent a range that has no safety officers or even (many) other shooters to bother me during my "fun time". There is enough space that everyone usually has their own berm, if not we just show respect to the other shooters.

But of course rapid fire is permitted and encouraged as the purpose of the ranges here are solely for the development of skill, which includes rapid engagement.

Where I shoot indoors, there always seems to be someone next to me firing a cannon. The range doesn't care about rapid fire. .223 rifles are ok. Shotguns are ok as long as you don't shoot bird shot. There is often someone shooting full auto. That doesn't take too long because the range makes them by ammo from the range. It goes fast. I usually just step back and wait until they have their fun. Okay, are you finished making noise? Now I'll shoot.
