It probably depends a lot on the type of outdoor ranges (bunker/berm style, lanes etc). Our range is set up like a lot of indoor ranges, it’s just outside (so shooting lanes right next two each other).
Please make sure your ECIs are visible when cease fires are called so the RSOs can quickly assess the safety/status of everyone’s weapon and get everyone back to shooting on the line in a timely manner.
If you’re shooting next to someone, please use a brass catcher, we have them there for a reason. Nothing more distracting to the shooter on the right than brass flying at you.
We ask that you police the brass into buckets off the cement walk/shooting areas (brass hounds often police brass from the gravel area forward of the shooting stations during cease fires which we’re fine with, but it’s not required. )
Set up multiple targets downrange so you’re not needing a cease fire/cold range called every couple magazines.
Yes we’re outdoors, but conversations carry, if you and your buddy’s are chatting it up fine but do be respectful of other members trying to shoot.
It’s a family range so when kid’s are about, please watch your language.
From an RSO perspective, it’s mostly making sure we’re not doing some maintenance task while shooters are on the line (e.g. leaf blowing, shoveling snow, collecting brass from buckets) unless they say it’s ok.
