June 26 2019 - Policy update
STEEL-CORE AMMO is now restricted to the MAIN RANGE, under certain circumstances; to be determined by the range director and range staff.
(full language of the policy is listed below)
------------------------------------------------
Quote
WEST END GUN CLUB POLICY ON THE USE OF STEEL CORE AMMUNITION
Approved on 6-26-2019
Steel core ammunition is only allowed to be fired from any gun, by anyone, on West End Gun
Club (WEGC) property under certain specified conditions as follows: Steel core ammunition
may not be shot at any WEGC approved match without specific board approval. Match
directors will change their match briefing to indicate this restriction. Steel core ammunition
may only be shot at the main range when considered safe by the Range Director or Range
Officer(s) on duty. Criteria used to determine when it is safe will be based on weather
conditions such as wind, Fire Danger Level as determined by the US Forest Service or Cal Fire,
moisture content in vegetation on WEGC property and any other factor that would make it
unsafe to shoot this type of ammunition. Fire season is generally May to November. The
Range Director and Range Officers are required to error on the side of safety in making their
decision. Range Officer and Match Directors will have the authority to check anyone’s
ammunition while on WEGC property for steel core ammunition, by use of a magnet or by
knowledge of known types of ammunition with steel core in the projectile.
Penalty for any member found to be shooting steel core ammunition, at any time or place on
WEGC property, that is not as designated by this policy, will be as follows: The member will be
required to appear before the WEGC Board of Directors and the board will follow the Policy and
Procedure Manual section, Conduct and Discipline, to determine the outcome for the violation.
The member under this section can lose their membership with the board following this
procedure. Non-members, who violate this policy, will be required to appear before the Board
of Directors and can be subject to expulsion from club property.
Two, three foot by three foot signs will be used to post on the main range if it is or is not safe to
shoot steel core ammunition. The signs will also state that the Main Range is the only
designated place to shoot this type of ammunition on WEGC property. One sign or the other
will be posted at all times and may only be changed by the Range Director or Range Officer on
duty. Anyone tampering with the signs will be subject to the same Conduct and Discipline
section of the Policy and Procedure Manual. Safe to shoot or not safe to shoot determination
will also be posted prominently on the first page of the club web site when notified by the
Range Director.
