SHOOTING/BEAN BAG

The Bean Bag throwing will be scored on the position of the ‘velcro’ on the target.

No person under the age of 18 may be in possession of or carry an air pistol unless in the presence of The Chief Range Officer or Firing Point Steward.

Safety flags (safety line can be strimmer cord), must be inserted in all pistols at all times except when the safety flag removal is authorised by the Firing Point Steward. To demonstrate that air guns are unloaded, safety flags (safety lines) must be long enough to extend through the full length of the barrel.

Safety flags must be inserted –

  1. at any time the pistol is unboxed. (Preferably safety flag will be in place when pistol is removed from the box)
  2. when anyone is forward of the firing point. (e.g. changing targets)
  3. upon completion of firing detail. (The pistol is considered safe and ready to be boxed with action open, safety flag in place (to confirm no pellet in the barrel) and confirmed as safe to box by the Firing Point Steward)
  4. anytime instructed to by the Firing Point Steward.

Guns must be kept in boxes until instructed otherwise by the shooting steward.

Protective or prescription glasses are recommended for the Shoot Phase at all levels and are mandatory for Shooting at 7 metres.

Substantial shoes (that do not reach the anklebone but which cover the whole foot – e.g. trainers) must be worn for the Shoot as well as long trousers/track suit bottoms.

Targets can be collected from the Secretary.

Scored targets can be collected from the Secretary by the PC Team Manager These must be checked and signed for before being taken away. No queries can be upheld once targets have been removed. Any targets not removed 1 hour after completion of shooting will be taken as approved.
