  2.  Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

  3.  Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

  4.  Guns are kept in a safe condition until you are ready to address the target.

  1.  To change a target or post a new one  —  request that the line be made safe.

  2.  Let your fellow shooter finish his current “string” of shots before attempting to make the line safe.

  3.  Once your gun is safe, move an arm’s length back from it and the bench.

  4.  Verify that the line is safe.

  5.  Let all shooters go forward to repair or replace targets.

  6.  Remind those staying on the firing line that they can not touch their guns while anyone is down range.

  7.  Verify that everyone is back on the firing line.

  8.  To resume firing  —  “Make the line hot.”
