3-Gun – New Shooter Information

New shooters are always welcome and we encourage you to come join us! Whether you are shooting or you just want to watch, safe shooters are always welcome!If you are a new shooter shooting your first match, you need to arrive at the range no later that 8:30 — and quickly identify yourself as a “New Shooter” so we can run you through our new shooter safety briefing in a timely manner.It’s also important that you realize WHSC is a non-profit organization and its activities depend completely on volunteer effort — there is no paid staff. All participants are required to help where they can at each shooting event so that it can run smoothly and start & finish on time. Subject to physical limitations and experience, all shooters are needed to do their fair share of target-taping, helping to set up, and safety-check stages, and restoring the bays to their pre-match condition after the match is over.After some shooting experience and training, shooters are also expected to serve as a Scorekeepers and Safety Officers, and are strongly encouraged to serve as Match Directors. Your cooperation and participation will be appreciated by all who enjoy the activity. We can’t run safe, enjoyable shooting events without able-bodied helpers. Shooters who wish only to “show up, shoot, and leave early” should look for another club.We run a “cold” range during matches (guns unloaded, magazine out, and hammer down except while firing), and we enforce a 180-degree rule. The muzzle of your gun must remain pointed down-range into the berm at all times, and cannot cross an imaginary line drawn straight across the range parallel to the backstop.
