The Member must accompany their guest at all times. 

Range Safety:

During non-supervised shooting hours, every member shall act as Range Safety Officer. If you see something unsafe, you have a responsibility to speak up to that person. If someone points out anything unsafe to you, please do not argue. Always assume that their view of it was correct. If you disagree, you may bring the matter up with staff to clarify.

Eye and ear protection is required of all persons on or near a firing line, whether those persons are shooting or not. All firearms shall be unloaded, both chamber and magazine when not in use.
    

Firearms are not to be handled and nothing on the bench should be touched, while the firing line is safe.
      

All shooters must verify that the firing line is safe when persons are down range and in front of the firing line.
      

Additionally, firearms shall be made safe in the following manners:

Firearms must be on a bench with slides back or actions open, and magazines or other ammunition source removed, or:
