The Four Fundamental Rules of Firearm Safety

  1. ​​ALWAYS treat all firearms as if they are loaded.
  2. ALWAYS keep the muzzle (the end of the barrel) pointed in a safe direction.
  3. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger and outside of the trigger guard until ready to fire.
  4. ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings especially what is in front and behind your target.

Visitors to the range must wear both eye and ear protection (you will not be able to participate without these items.)


Clay pigeon targets and any other target that results in debris is not allowed on the Range.
  • Range Safety Rules are posted at each of the shooting ranges. Familiarize yourself with these rules. 

  • Eye and hearing protection are required for all persons within range areas. 

  • Directions given by an RSO must be followed by all members and others present on the range. 

  • Firing shall be directed downrange into the impact berm. No diagonal or cross-firing is allowed. 

  • No shooting is allowed at ground targets (balls, rocks, cans, etc.). 

  • No shooting at any animals on the range. It is against state law. 

  • Owners of Federally Licensed Class III firearms may fire on the range. They are asked to be courteous of other shooters and separate themselves from an appropriate distance for others. 

  • Remove everything you bring to the range. Permission is required to donate to the range. 

  • Dogs are welcome to the range. Maintain control or leash them. Clean up after them. 

  • Any youth under 18-years of age requires adult supervision. That means that when they are shooting there is an adult supervising them and not shooting at the same time. One adult per youth under 18 – or only one youth at a time shooting per adult supervising. 

  • Open bolt/empty chamber indicators are required to be used at any time requested by an RSO.  Typically this is on the Main/Public Range on Saturdays and at certain match events, but applies whenever requested by an RSO. 

  • All shooters are required to pick-up their debris (brass) and remove their targets. 

  • No shooting at thrown or aerial targets is allowed. 

  • The shooting of shotguns is allowed but is not allowed at TRSC provided cardboard backers.  If you are going to pattern a shotgun bring your own cardboard target. 

  • Clay pigeon targets and any other target that results in debris is not allowed on the range.
  • No Tannerite or explosive targets, projecting launches, flares or grenades are allowed.


It is always Fire Season at the Range. Fire supplies are distributed throughout the Range area. If you see a fire – Dial 911 immediately – then work to contain the spread. If you are the last one at the range – take your time leaving.

No Armor Piercing, Tracer, Incendiary, Steel Core, or other ammunition that can potentially cause a spark is allowed on the Range.

Tonto National Forest Smoking Rules apply on the Range.

No Alcohol permitted on the Range.  Violation of this rule will result in termination of membership.
