Eye and Ear protection is REQUIRED
The Rimfire Range is clearly marked with a large sign outlining the club rules for its use. Rimfire gets its name because the firing pin strikes the rim of the base. Examples include .17, .22 short, and .22 long. Rimfire cartridges are limited to low pressure calibers because they require a thin case so that the firing pin can crush the rim and ignite the primer.
BB and air guns ARE allowed on the Rimfire Range.
.22 magnum and .17 rimfire weapons may be fired on the larger Rimfire Benchrest Range and also on the Centerfire Rifle Range from the bench firing line.
You may NOT shoot any centerfire guns on the Rimfire Range. This means NO centerfire rifles, pistols, shotguns, or black powder guns. The Utility Pit (Pistol Pit #4) was constructed to accommodate all of these centerfire guns with the exception of shotguns. Anyone shooting centerfire guns or shotguns on the Rimfire Range is subject to suspension or expulsion from RCGC.
