At Crowland Gun Club we have a strict code of conduct that all shooters must adhere to – it is there for your safety and the safety of others. Plus we have a short list of other rules too, to help the smooth running of the club…
- Never point a gun, loaded or not, at anyone.
- All guns should be broken unless it is the shooter’s turn to shoot. All semi-automatic guns should be carried with the barrel pointing safely (either skywards or towards the ground).
- If the whistle blows, shooting ceases immediately.
- Do not insert cartridges in to your gun unless it is your turn to shoot.
- If farmers are working their adjacent fields or dog walkers pass by, shooting must halt until it is safe to do so.
- In the event of a cartridge misfiring on not firing, it must be left in the barrel, pointing down range until it is safe to be removed from the gun and discarded safely.
- Do not walk in front of any traps at any time.
- When loading traps, make sure it is switched off and uncocked first.
- All unbroken clays and spent cartridges must be collected at the end of each shoot.
- Cigarette ends and litter must be placed in the bins provided.
- Cartridges must have a maximum load of 28g and maximum shot size 6.
- Either fibre or plastic wads may be used.
- Safety glasses and ear protection must be worn at all times.
