A second safety/firearms training class is required for Pistol Certification. The pistol class is restricted to ages 12 to 18.
Instructors will be available on a scheduled basis. Participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants are encouraged to furnish their own firearms, however range rifles and pistols will be available for use. Participants are required to furnish ammo. Ammo will be available at the range for purchase at a reduced price.
Metal Madness puts safety first! The only time a firearm is loaded and charged is when the player is shooting. No firearm can be loaded until every player is in place on the firing line and the command to make your firearm ready is given.
When the firearm is made ready the player can not handle the firearm until it is their turn to shoot. When the player finishes shooting their lane or changes lanes: the firearm is unloaded, flagged (a small bright plastic piece that shows the firearm is unloaded), and placed on the deck pointing downrange in their lane, or pointed up while changing lanes.
The Four Rules:
Treat all guns as if they are always loaded.
Never point the firearm at something you are not prepared to destroy.
Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot.
Be sure of your target and what is behind it.
