Free Safety Class Logo
Pueblo Municipal Shooters, Inc Board of Directors approved on Monday night a proposal by Chief Range Safety Officer,  Rick Sindeband to have the Free Gun Safety Classes required for all new members starting January 2014. The gun safety program covers range specific rules,gun safety rules,proper gun handling, and general topics that all safe shooters need to understand. Also approved at that time was permission to ask offenders of major rules to attend the class and become trained in the range specific rules and general safety rules that we all should be handling firearms with. In the past each new member was given a summary of the rules during new member orientation, but this was found to be inadequate and needed to be improved. Class takes 2.5-3 hours and will be held several times each month. There is no cost for this program for members and non-members alike. RSO’s (Range Safety Officers) and PMS Certified Instructors will be instructing these classes that do not qualify the attendee for a concealed handgun permit.

Several events have happened this week and I thought maybe a quick review would be in order of some of the safety rules that we have in place at Pueblo Municipal Shooters Inc.

pistol in slide lock

  • First one is the gun out of the holster or gun case anywhere in the building except in the shooting booth. This is a big safety violation. You can not have a naked gun (one that is out of a holster or gun case) anywhere except in the shooting booth. There are no exceptions to this rule. YOU CAN NOT PASS A GUN BETWEEN BOOTHS, or WALK FROM THE BACK BENCH TO THE BOOTH WITH AN UN-CASED OR UN-HOLSTERED GUN.  This includes .22 cal rifles, they must be un-cased in the shooting booth.
  • Second one is muzzle always pointed down range  this one is a problem all the time. People tend to hold semi-auto pistols directions other than down range when loading and unloading. Remember to load and unload with the pistol pointing down range. Some find it easy to turn sideways point the pistol down range and load or unload. Remember when not shooting to have your pistol in slide lock with the ejection port up on the bench. Revolvers should have the cylinder open or in the case of a single action revolver the loading gate should be open. These guns on the bench should always be pointing down range, not left and right.
  • This one may seem simple but you can not go down range to retrieve any brass or targets at any time. Even if the range is empty and no one else is there. We have brooms and rakes if you can not reach with these tools leave the items down range.
  • The last one is an administrative item. If you bring a guest you must fill out a guest form in the wavier book. Do no put them in the sign in rooster for members.
Help keep our range a great place to shoot and remind those around around you of these simple rules.
