The following Range Rules were adopted by the Board of Directors of the Cape Cod Fish & Game Association.

Range Rules


  • Safe firearms practices must be followed at all time.
  • Persons using the ranges, do so at their own risk
  • Loaded Firearms must be pointed down range at all times.
  • Persons using the ranges must comply with all State and Federal regulations.
  • All Firearms on the firing line are to be unloaded if people are downrange setting targets.
  • Firing on the ranges is to be done in a manner that will land the bullet in the bullet traps. – no exceptions. No Ground shooting.
  • There will be no firing into the banks or berms
  • There will be no firing at wooden target supports or wooden bollards at the bullet traps.
  • Shotguns are not be used on the pistol range. Shotguns are not to be used to blow large holes in the homosote backboards. Pattern your shotgun on the trap range. Blowing the homosote target backboards apart does nothing more than increase the cost of our operation.
  • There will be no fully automatic firearms use on any range, by anyone, at any time. Any usage or modification of a firearm to discharge more than once per trigger pull is forbidden. This includes Bump Firing and the use of Slide Fire devices.
  • No use of any type or brand of explosive target is permitted.
  • There will be no shotgun or rifle (larger than 22 caliber) use on the pistol range.
  • There will be no 50 caliber (or larger) rifles used anywhere on the property at any time, except black powder rifles may be used on the rifle range only.
  • Members are responsible for the actions of their invited guests.
  • If you use the ranges, it is expected that you will clean-up after yourself---this means pick up your targets, trash and brass and dispose of properly in the dumpster or brass barrel.
  • Anyone that observes unsafe practices, or malicious damage being done on the range should report it to the Board.
  • Members and their invited guests that do not follow range rules and demonstrate proper gun safety, will be expelled from the club.


We, the members of the Board, believe that these rules should be very clear. If there is any confusion, at all, please feel free to ask any Board member for a clarification. We will not tolerate abuse of the range or unsafe acts on the range.


Your cooperation will be appreciated.
