What (if any) changes to these make to the existing policy. These all seem similar to what we already know.

i wasn't aware that if we lose our rifle card, that we have to retake the class again.

Some of the earlier rifle classes did not stress the part about target needs to be 50ft or further, or the rifle card really is for you and you only. Putting those in clear writing can avoid any future arguments.

i wasn't aware that if we lose our rifle card, that we have to retake the class again.

Since we currently do not implement a system to keep track of your rifle card, we don't know if your card is simply lost, expired, or revoked, thus we now require you to take the class again. If you left the card at our range (where that's usually how people "lost" their card), we usually have that in our lost and found box and you can retrieve it without having to take the class again. As far as I can recall, there were IDs, membership cards, rifle cards, a passport and once upon a time, a green card!:eek:

ALL,

There has been a question by shooters once again -- Why do we get upset when someone other than the rifle card holder shoot the rifle. See attached PDF for the latest reason. Failure to follow the rules will ultimately ruin it for all

Can a lead core bullet do that kind of damage to steal? Or are these green tips? Also do card holders need to qualify or is it just a written test? The folks new to the sport and "gun ho" on firing that new "toy" they just got due to the fear of our current administration banning most everything but really haven't a clue about how to safely operate, just scare me.

I'm not a OnTarget staff, but I will speak from my experience (we host monthly events at OnTarget).

Yes lead core rifle projectiles will cause significant damage to steel. I have seen it happen several times and I'm sure it won't be the last time I see it. A .223 55gr shot out of an AR have caused significant cratering on the hangers. You can guess how much damage a higher caliber round can cause.

Prospective rifles shooters will need to demonstrate safe handling of rifles on the lane and basic markmanship skills in order to qualify for the permit. The shot grouping must be within 2". CWM4A1 is very good about running the class and working with us to get permits into the hands of people who demonstrate that they can use rifles safely around other people.

Hope that helps answer your question.

Late to the party. Even Lead-Core rounds can ding up the hanger easy, and resulting ricochet may take out a light fixture or strings that pulls the trolly and set target to different distance.

As for the part about the class, it's more to address our range specific safety rule and qualification is 15 yards, 3 shot group less than 5". If you have being shooting for a little bit this should be very easy to achieve.

What I have ran into lately was people with no prior experience taking the rifle safety class thinking this is a class teaching them how to shoot rifle. This is really a safety class with proficiency qualification and nothing more. Anyone who wants to learn how to shoot we do offer separate basic rifle class to teach them how to shoot, starting with a .22LR.

I have been a regular at OnTarget for a while now...I really should take the time to do the high power rifle class to get the card. I only got a .243 savage atm, but I am sure it'll come in handy when I get an AR.
