Securing the Range
Please adjust the locks when leaving the range as displayed in the picture. The lock positions should all be in the zero (0000) position. It is mandatory that all shooters when leaving the range make sure they are in this position. Make sure not to lock the locks to the chain. The locks must be in this position for the oil well people to access the range when they need to. Not doing this prevents them from entering the range.
800 and 900 Yard Firing Lines
When practicing or competing in a Palma match from the 800 and 900 yard firing lines, do not drive your vehicle off the road leading to the oil well. Please carry your equipment to the firing line from your vehicle parked on the road. The firing lines have drain tile installed just below the surface to drain the standing water and driving over the drain tile will crush it. This drain tile extends across the entire depth of the firing lines and the area behind them. Your vehicle tires could also create ruts in the area behind the firing line. This applies at all times of the year whether the ground is firm or not. Please park on the oil well road only, do not drive or park off the road.
Bore Sighting Procedure
If you are unsure of your sight elevations you must declare this at the time of event squadding. We will assist in you confirming elevation zeros. It is everyones responsibility to keep fired rounds in designated impact areas. Whether you are a member, or guest it is your responsibility to insure that you and your equipment are capable of doing so. It is the policy of the Alliance Rifle Club to provide a sighting target and assistance to help you confirm your elevation zero during scheduled events (i.e. mid-rang/long range events). A person will have five (5) rounds in which to strike a sighting target in order to participate in the days events. During the sighting phase of match if a competitor scores five (5) consecutive misses you will be disqualified, and must cease firing in that match.
The 1,000 yard bore sight procedure includes “EVERYONE” even during a practice or a non-match day.
