Shooting Range rules are tailored to each individual range with little to no regard whether or not a particular firearm, ammunition type, method of fire is deemed legal by any local, state or federal entity. Range Rules are created to ensure safe operation of the range as the range was initially designed. As new types of firearms, ammunition types and method of fire are introduced over time each range operator must determine whether or not the new firearms, ammunition types and method of fire are able to be used at the existing facility without modifying the facility to accommodate the new firearms, ammunition types and method of fire.
It is our responsibility to ensure the range remains safe for both users of the range and its neighbors. Our range rules, which are specific to the public English Pit Shooting Range not only describes acceptable behaviors but also restricts the use of certain firearms, accessories and techniques that we feel we cannot safely accommodate as the range is currently constructed and located. We understand that the following may be deemed legal, but, our premise is that the range, in its current location and configuration, does not provide an adequate margin of safety to allow them to be used.
We understand the position of some who would believe the following are perfectly safe, that they should be allowed to use them and that we are unreasonable for not allowing them to do so. To them we will say that we are responsible for the safe operations of this shooting range and are managing the risks at the existing facility.
We are considering these new types of firearms, ammunition types and methods of fire as we design a new public range to which the existing English Pit Shooting Range will eventually relocate. This is not to say, suggest or infer that all or any of the following will be allowed at the new range - some will likely not be allowed at the replacement range (sorry Rambo).
The following restrictions of use or outright ban apply to the English Pit Shooting Range
