Anyone participating in firearm related activities at the Club are responsible to read, understand, follow and enforce the Range Operating Instructions, Range Safety Instructions and all other Range Procedures/Safety Procedures as found linked below. The Range Operating Instructions document is filed with the Chief Provincial Firearms Office and is a legal document comprising part of the requirements for the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club’s certification and approval under the firearm legislation. Any breach of the instructions therein can and may be pursued and charges laid under the law.
Our ranges operate basically unsupervised and as such, if more than one person is present, one of the shooters must assume the role of Range Officer to issue commands on the range. Under legislation the Club carries insurance for the facilities and has insurance for its members. Therefore, only members in good standing (dues paid), or guests accompanied by a member in good standing may use the facilities legally. While shooting, guests must be under the immediate and direct supervision (in law means literally at an arms length) of a member in good standing. Guests must pay a $5 daily fee to use the range. It is illegal for non-members to use the range facilities. Prior to using range facilities, all club members must sign a log book as located in the Longbranch or the clubhouse, this includes all guests whom use a separate log book.
