Safety at Mosman-Neutral Bay Rifle Club

Safety is the watchword, and no-one is allowed to shoot until they have completed a safety course AND demonstrated that they can carry on in a safe manner at all times. Rifles must be disabled by removing the bolt until placed on the firing point just before shooting starts, and must be disabled again before being removed from the firing point after shooting is complete. A second person must check that a rifle has been disabled after a shoot by looking through the barrel to ensure that the bolt is out, the breech is empty, and there are no obstructions in the barrel itself. Only then can the rifle be removed from the firing point.
