"Shooters, Mecklenburg Wildlife Club and Mecklenburg Defensive Shooters, has spent a great deal of time and money to build a SAFE AREA for the back pistol berms. This new area is now ready and we will begin to use it this month at our IDPA match. This new area is close to the first conex box and behind the sign-in shack.
This is now the only SAFE AREA to be used before, during, and after our matches. Please bring your weapon, in its container, bag, rug, box, glove, etc. along with your holster to the SAFE AREA. When you are facing into the SAFE AREA then you may un-bag, check, draw, dry-fire, holster, and otherwise prepare, for the match.
As always there is to be NO ammunition in the SAFE AREA when you are handling you weapon.!!!!! Again, THAT IS NO AMMO IN THE SAFE AREA WHEN YOU ARE MANIPULATING ANY WEAPON.
Backs of cars/trucks, sides of berms, etc., are no longer considered SAFE AREAS. Therefore, anyone violating this policy may be disqualified from the local match. Remember folks, Mecklenburg is a COLD RANGE, and the only place that you may handle any weapon is on the firing line under the supervision of the Safety Officer or in the SAFE AREA. We all greatly appreciate your help in this matter so that we may keep our range safe and operating as it has for many, many years.
