As a member of the Sheboygan Rifle and Pistol Club, the Club’s steel is your steel and you are able to get access to use it on Club property.
To get access to the steel, contact Ryan Linder, Secretary, at 920-750-1799 or SRPClub.firstname.lastname@example.org
at least 48 hours in advance. Please provide your name and date desired in the email, text, or phone message (if it goes to voice mail). Ryan will contact you with a confirmation.
Four rules when using club steel.
- As always safety first: You should always be using eye protection when shooting, especially when shooting steel. Splatter is common when shooting steel so it is an absolute necessity for everyone present: shooting or watching. Not following this rule, will result in Board review.
- The designated firing line is the concrete firing line. To be able to shoot steel you must move the firing line so that the steel targets are right in front of the berms. If another member shows up and wants to shoot at the designated firing line, the firing line must be moved and your steel shooting will be cut short. That is the risk of trying to shoot the club steel.
- Know the distance you must be away from the steel: 30 feet minimum for pistol caliber ammunition (including 22LR) or 100 yards for rifle rounds. Not following this rule, will result in Board review.
- No armor piercing rounds. Check your ammo; if you don’t know, don’t shoot the Club’s steel. If you do put holes in Club steel, let the Board know; it’s better for you instead of the Board finding out after the fact.
Not following any of the above rules will result in Board review.
The day that you are signed up for the steel access, your FOB will be updated to give you access to the clubhouse; confirmation of this will be provided by email or phone call the morning of your reserved date. Make sure you also have Ryan’s phone number available in case you get locked out of the clubhouse and need to get in. There will be additional instructions and a key on how to access the steel by the light switches in the main meeting room.
When you are done, make sure all the steel is returned to its proper place (take a picture with your phone before grabbing any steel) and the steel access key is returned to the clubhouse; a checklist will be provided via email and a copy is in the clubhouse by the light switches in the main meeting room. Please contact Ryan when you are done and your FOB status will return to normal: no longer have clubhouse access.
