You MUST read and follow all range safety rules before/while using either range; You must respect these rules and use them while on RVSSA property. SAFETY ON ANY SHOOTING RANGE BEGINS AND ENDS WITH YOU.
You must have the attention and a confirmation of each shooter in your designated range before walking past the firing line and entering the firing area.
To do this, each shooter must yell "CLEAR" *BEFORE* walking out to set up target(s) and have confirmation from every shooter in your range. If a shooter has his/her earplugs in and can't hear for any reason, signal those next to this person to get their attention. It may seem like common sense that if someone walks out onto the firing area that you stop shooting, put your firearm on safe, and set it down, but ACCIDENTS AND STUPIDITY DOES AND WILL HAPPEN WHEN RULES ARE IGNORED OR FORGOTTEN. It has happened to me personally. Placing a target out and a shooter began firing! Even worse, it was a person being "trained" by someone! I am fortunate to be alive after that situation and I am NOT shy about confirming CLEAR and HOT with every single shooter so I know they're aware of what is going on. Clearly I did not confirm that the so called "instructor" nor their trainee heard me. Very stupid of me, deadly stupid. These two shooters also were NOT paying attention to their surroundings and checking fellow shooters every so often.
To prevent injury or death on any range in this instance DO NOT walk past the firing line onto the firing area UNTIL EVERY SINGLE SHOOTER HAS CONFIRMED "CLEAR", SETS THEIR FIREARMS DOWN WITH THE BOLT / SLIDE OPEN, AND ALL HANDS ARE OFF AND AWAY FROM ALL FIREARMS.
Before even touching your firearm each shooter must yell and confirm "HOT" with EVERY other shooter in your area. Only after EVERY SHOOTER has confirmed "HOT" may you touch your firearm and safely fire down range.
