Safety Alert – 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
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
Reminder – there is no using
or other exploding targets on the ranges at the WRGC. Explosions
disturb our neighbors, and we try to be good neighbors.
