SIGHT IN RANGE
New rules covering the use of the sight in range are in progress. As soon as completed, the rules will be posted on the WCL website, range bulletin board, and emailed to members with current email addresses. We are in the planning stage of remodeling the interior of the sight in range. If we need to close the range for repairs, an email will be sent to members who have email address on file. Word of caution to members using the range. Check your ammo to ensure you have the correct cartridges for your firearms. There have been mishaps on the range in the past with wrong ammo. Muzzle loading firearms should be checked to ensure they are not loaded prior to coming to the range. Paper targets are the only targets permitted on the range. Clean up the range when done.
