The outdoor range is located at: 17906 State Rd #60
Borden, IN 47106 United States This is a view from the 300 yard line during a CMP Vintage Sniper match.
There is a creek to cross.It is usually very shallow, in the neighborhood of 4-6 inches deep, but it can rise quickly during a heavy rain event. If you cannot see the bottom all of the way across, you should carefully consider NOT trying to cross. Latest dated picture on home page.
Use careful judgment before crossing!
Outdoor Range Rules:
The Southern Indiana Rifle and Pistol Club is organized for the purpose of promoting and supporting competitive shooting. The club not only supports competitive, rifle and pistol shooting, but also makes its facilities available to the club membership for non-competitive shooting as well. The club does this by having its facilities available for club member use when they are not being used for organized competition or other club sponsored activity.
General range rules: Safety…Safety…Safety!
- No shooting is allowed when anyone is forward of the firing line. When multiple ranges are in use at the outdoor facility, all ranges must be made safe before anyone can go forward of any range firing line. This makes cooperation and communication between the various ranges a necessity. Anyone not following this rule will be subject to club discipline ranging from a reprimand to expulsion from the club.
- All firearms on all ranges must be in a safe condition before anyone proceeds downrange. A safe condition is described as follows. Bolts open on rifles, slides back on pistols, cylinders out on revolvers and an empty chamber indicator in the chamber. Magazines are to be out of the rifle or pistol; cartridges are to be removed from the cylinder of a revolver. All firearms are to be on the bench or ground. No firearm is to be handled in any way or for any reason while the range is in a safe condition.
- When all persons have returned behind the firing line or lines, the range officer or person in charge may declare the line hot. Then firearms may be handled in a safe manner.
- No shooting from a holster.
- No running or walking with a loaded firearm.
- No firearm is to be in a firing condition unless it is on the firing line and the command to load has been given. This includes all firearms! All actions must be open except when the firearm is on the line ready to be fired.
- No ammunition…using tracer, incendiary, or exploding bullets are to be used on any of the ranges.
- Nofiring of a firearm toward the firing line is permitted.
- Club members should clean up the area when shooting is completed. Members should take their trash with them off the range. Members should bring their own targets and target holders to the range when practicing, the club may have target holders available and they may be used. When using your own target holders place them so that your bullets will not damage any of the range property such as the target number boards at two hundred yards. The dirt protects the turning target system on the pistol range. The storage shed is not a back stop either! No glass of any kind is to be used as targets on any of the ranges!
Range courtesy and good sportsmanship is to be used at all times.
