Range time is important for all members of the Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club. There is one member who is testing some new loads for his hunting rifle. There are a couple of friends who have been on the bench rest area for some target practice for an hour or more. Most of the benches are currently occupied. You arrive and while the range area is active take your firearm to a bench and get ready to shoot. You wait patiently for a few minutes watching the other shooters to gauge when they might take a little break so that you can go and set up a target. They seem to be pretty intent on their shooting and don’t seem to even notice your arrival. How long do you wait for a cease-fire?
Do you have good manners on the firing line? Are you aware that other shooters have arrived and would like an opportunity to set up a target? If you have been shooting for a while and all the benches are occupied, do you offer your space to the member who just arrived?
Introduce yourself. Welcome the new member. Share the firing line.
