– The Skeet division reports finding fired 00 Buckshot shotshells on
the skeet ranges. Also, a new shooter arrived at the skeet range with a
box of 00 buckshot shells to shoot a round of skeet. The shells were
replaced with suitable shotshells, and the shooter was allowed to shoot
a round of skeet. The concern is that some members may be using 00
buckshot to shoot arial targets with their own handheld or machine
launched targets. This is a dangerous practice as the buckshot could
travel off the club property and endanger the trailer park or kids camp
which border the club’s property.
All members are advised to use bird shot NO LARGER than 71/2 when
shooting at ariel targets to reduce the chance of shot falling off
the club’s property
– there is no using Tannerite or other exploding
targets on the ranges at the WRGC. Explosions disturb our neighbors,
and we try to be good neighbors.
