Facility-wide, Critical Match Safety Guidelines:

Please keep your firearm(s) unloaded and cased upon arrival to our ranges and do not handle them at your vehicle.  Once you reach a designated safe area, firearms can be uncased and a chamber flag inserted.  If you are in need of a chamber flag, they are available at PNTC HQ. For handguns, please keep your magazine out and the slide locked back while leaving it in the safe area.  If you plan to keep your handgun holstered during a match, it needs to be free of ammunition and magazine until directed by a PNTC Range Officer.  Safe areas are to be kept free of ammunition at all times.  Firearms are not to be loaded until the shooter is on the firing line or under the direction of a PNTC Range Officer.

Again, DO NOT handle firearms at your vehicles.  Use the “Safe Areas” to case and uncase and/or repair firearms.

No bi-metal, armor piercing, incendiary or tracer rounds allowed. If a magnet sticks to a projectile, it cannot be used.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in a match disqualification.
