Critical Safety Guidelines:
Hummelstown Field and Stream Association runs a COLD RANGE! Any failure to abide by this rule will result in disqualification. This means DO NOT handle handguns at your vehicles or anywhere else on the grounds except as follows. Only use a Safe Table to case and uncase and/or handle, lube or repair handguns. Please keep your handguns UNLOADED and CASED or holstered upon arrival and at all times on the grounds. No Exceptions! DO NOT HANDLE FIREARMS AT YOUR VEHICLE! If you wish to transition to a holster on the club grounds, please bring your CASED and UNLOADED handgun to the Safe Table which will be located in the clubhouse next to registration. NO AMMO is allowed on a Safe Table! If you do not know where the Safe Table is – PLEASE ASK! Your ammo may be handled and loaded into magazines or speed loaders at any OTHER table or place EXCEPT a Safe Table. Once at a Safe Table you may uncase and holster your UNLOADED firearm. Please keep your magazine out of your handgun, and DO NOT remove your firearm from your bag/box/holster, do not handle it in any way, do not attempt to load it anywhere except on the firing line and then ONLY AFTER you are specifically instructed to do so by the Safety Officer. There will be another Safe Table down at the ranges and the same rules apply there. Handguns in holsters must have the ACTION CLOSED and the hammer down/decocked.
Additional Shoot Information:
All shooters must report and complete their registration at the HF&S clubhouse 60-30 minutes prior to their scheduled relay time! You will receive the shoot documents and sign up for a squad when you check in. The safety briefing will be in the clubhouse and it starts 15 minutes prior to the shoot so please be on time. Note: If there are open slots, we will continue to allow shooters to register and pay at the door. However, in order for this to continue and not require payment up front, we are asking that you DO NOT sign up until you are certain you can make the shoot. Pre-Registering and taking up a spot hurts other shooters and the range, so please don’t sign up unless you fully intend on making the shoot. Persistent no-shows will not be invited back.
Follow the instructions in the shoot advertisement/announcement. If you want to shoot with someone else, please sign-up in the same squad.
Please no children under 10 years of age permitted as spectators or shooters! At some point when we have an established program we hope to offer special event days where children under will be permitted. Please do not bring a minor by yourself and shoot. Minors must be under DIRECT SUPERVISION of a parent or legal guardian at ALL TIMES at HF&S. No junior shooters under age 10. All junior shooters must remain with a parent and must show that they are able to be safe and have good conduct.
In order to participate in this shoot you need to be able to safely operate a handgun. If you are uncomfortable safely operating a handgun you should NOT participate in this shoot. If you are close to being able to doing this, but need additional help, we recommend you come out on a Tuesday night and we can help prepare you for this type of shooting.
