Rifle Range Briefings




Range Safety Briefings are planned for the 4th Sunday every Month at 9:30am, or contact a Range Officer to fit your schedule.

- When attending the range briefing, you must present your current membership card or a
receipt or phone picture to receive your new key, range badge, and have your gate key fob activated.

- Once you have completed the briefing you will receive your LSA Rifle Range Badge/Lanyard/Key.
A Key-Fob for the range gate may then be purchased from the Club Secretary for $45.

Since we have gone to the electronic Key-Fob system, and the dues increased, they are a few changes, i.e.:
You do not need to trade in your 2023 Badge for a new one - those or new ones will be good "forever."
You do not need to sign into the logbook.
You no not need to pay for the Badge/Lanyard/Key - that is included in your dues.
You do not need to buy a key for the Plate Rack or Texas Stars that is included with your dues.
Also, Public Hours have been eliminated, and the Guest policy is changed to 3 Guests or Family.

The Range Briefing details have been updated to agree with current practice - see link below

LOW TARGETS WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED


where a projectile hits the ground, after passing through a
target or misses the target, before it hits a backstop !!!






Confusion regarding use of STEEL TARGETS



There appears to be some confusion about the use of your own steel targets on the range. You are still
allowed to use your own steel targets on the range as long as the following conditions are met:


1) the target is angled in such a way as to deflect the projectile directly toward the ground

2) OR it's a swinging target

3) AND it's positioned high enough that a missed shot hits either the 50 yd backstop
on the upper range or one of the 50ft, 25yd, 50yd or 100yd backstops on the lower range

4) targets must not be bent or all dented from bullet impact, AR500 steel is preferred

5) the STEEL target must be set up at a minimum distance of 50 feet for handgun cartridges and
100 yards for high power rifle cartridges.

Reminder NO HIGH POWER RIFLES are allowed on the upper range, period.
