Wheel Burners members are entitled to use our ranges and equipment at any time, but if you come and shoot you are obligated to pay the daily use fee just like our club does for our matches. If you shoot on a non-match day, please stop at the rifle range and sign the "Private Club" sheet and leave the $10 per shooter in the drawer. Before leaving the Wheel Burners range, please return all targets back to their original location and lay steel down flat. Steel targets that are left standing can become a tempting target to rifle shooters outside our range. Once punctured or dented by a rifle caliber, the steel can't be used for handgun events. Remember, no centerfire rifles are allowed on the Wheel Burners range because we face south toward Route 126. We are now required by our range lease to be proactive in raking up expended brass and lead to prevent migration to the creek bed. Buckets are being provided to collect range brass for recycling. Please place all empty water bottles and other trash in a container, or better yet, take it away from the range because if you leave it, then someone else has to handle it.
