GENERAL RANGE RULES:
The following general rules apply to all persons who are on Robb Jeffrey Distinguished Range (1000 Plus LLC) property for any purpose, and at all times. There are additional rules specific to each of the ranges, and all persons must be familiar with and observe those range specific rules as well.
1. Treat ALL firearms as though they are loaded and ready to fire until YOU have ascertained otherwise. Never point any firearm at anything that you do NOT want to shoot.
2. All firearms in a car must be unloaded and safely cased.
3. When uncasing a firearm for moving it to the firing line ACTIONS MUST BE OPENED and the arm carried with the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, normally straight up. Some ranges or events require that a yellow or orange safety indicator be inserted into the open action. Muzzle loading arms are excepted from the actions open rule but must be unloaded.
4. Away from the firing line handguns may not be carried in holsters, except for law enforcement personnel in uniform or persons holding valid concealed carry permits. “QUICK DRAW” handgun practice or shooting IS NOT PERMITTED on Robb Jeffrey Distinguished Range (1000 Plus LLC) property.

12. Be extremely careful with fire. Do not burn trash or drive through dry grass because the heat of car exhausts may start fires.
13. The nearest emergency fire and medical responders are in Lexington and it will take at least half an hour for assistance to arrive at the range.
