I'm nervous about breaking a rule on video that is a rule but not something that is unsafe, for example reaching down and picking up a live round that simply feel off the bench while the range is hot is considered a violation of the rules and will result in a 1 year ban from the range. The proper procedure is to call a cease fire and then pick up the round.

I'm hoping that the rules are very very strict in writing and common sense is applied in practice but I won't know until I start using it.

I think it all comes as better judgment. Stop insulting our intelligence. That sort of thing.

Every range has sop that will be different than the range across town. Find a range you are comfortable with.

Safety First And Foremost. Nothing else matters.

Some comments about the RSO program not doing anything, being a rip off. I hope I never experience anyone with your attitude while I am at a range.

I've been going to the range for several months. I have yet to see anyone else when I am there. That makes things a bit easier because I only have to be responsible for myself but it also makes the rules seem insane.

In my dropped round example here is what I need to do when I am by myself.

Round falls off table.
I verbally announce cease fire.
I safe my gun.
I stand up, walk 20 feet away to a light system and change the light colors.
I walk back over to where I dropped the round and pick it up.
I walk back over and change the light colors again.
I verbally announce the range is hot.
I walk back over to my bench and continue shooting.

Ok...That does sound like a bit much.
