REMINDER OF THE MONTH
BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU ARE SHOOTING! We were all taught to check on what is behind our target before shooting. The same applies at the range. There are a lot of holes in the walls separating the shooting bays. When shooting at a target on the return target system, line yourself up so that bullets will not hit a wall after going through your target. Align yourself so that you are facing straight down range. This is especially important when shooting at short distances. Because of the angles, it is easier to hit the side wall if you are not straight on to the target. Thank you.
