Somehow our email listing has been captured by evil persons. I used the bcc option when listing your emails, which is supposed to be somewhat secure. Famous last words.
In trying to maintain some security our ISA email has been changed. I have deleted the old one, firstname.lastname@example.org, and taken out the new one, email@example.com. Please delete any emails from firstname.lastname@example.org as I will not be using that email Actually since I deleted that old account, they should not be sending any more from that address. Thanks.

IRWIN SPORTSMEN’S RANGE SAFETY RULES
ALWAYS keep gun pointed in a safe direction.
ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
ALWAYS keep gun unloaded until ready to use.
KNOW your target and what is beyond.
Each range has a firing line. Use it.
Only special shoots may change the firing line.
DO NOT move closer to the targets. Move the targets closer to the firing line.
Keep gun unloaded, pointing up or down, action open, empty or in a gun case when approaching the firing line or benches.
Guns are to be unloaded, open and/or safety flags inserted and NOT handled when targets are being replaced.
DO NOT SWEEP people with your muzzle.
When someone is downrange, do not handle your gun until everyone is behind the firing line.
DO NOT use your scopes to see if someone is down range.
Use the safety flag at the rifle range when changing targets and the last shooter brings the flag back to the firing line so that everyone is accounted.
Use the proper firearm for the range that is being used.
ALWAYS make sure that you are shooting into the back stops and not the ground or in the air.
Do not throw live ammo in the burn barrels, they explode when burned scaring the hell out of people if not the possibility of a bullet penetrating someone.
Shoot safely and have fun!
