SAFETY is #1 at ISA
MEMBERSHIP: Includes spouse, significant others, and child/children under age 18. Paying members must accompany any of the above. On a child’s 18th birthday, to continue with the club they must become a paying member at the cost of $30, as the initiation fee of $30 is waved in this case.
No alcohol is allowed on site. The only exception is when the club house and outside covered picnic area is rented, alcohol may be consumed only in those areas.
Do not give out the gate code to anyone. Immediate loss of membership will result.
Indoor range in the club house is for .22 caliber only. Do not shoot the red lines or above the red lines. Do not shoot from the front room. Turn on the shooting lamp so as to warn those entering through the equipment room.
WORK PARTIES: Three work party credit is required. A $20 fee for each work party not credited up to three. Check out the web page for ways of getting credit for work parties. Work parties start in April and continue through October. A work party is held each Wednesday from 5 to 7 PM and each second Wednesday of the month from 9-11 AM. Some special work parties will be held and are advertised at meetings and on our web page. If you have special conditions such as health problems or disabilities, work parties may be waived after making a request in writing to one of the officers. This will be considered on a case by case basis. Remember to sign the work party sheet to get credit. All ranges are closed during work parties and the first day of rifle deer season (some members hunt on ISA property).
On the archery range use practice arrows on the hay bales and broad head arrows on the sand pit.
Silhouette range can use only straight wall shells, like .22, .357, or .44. Do not use bottleneck shells. Clays can be used on this range. Please pick up empty shells and place all trash in the burn barrels. When shooting at clays, locate between the center and right houses and shoot center to right. This will prevent interfering with the pistol range.
Upper pistol range is located between the club house and the rifle range. There are 7 and 25 yard targets. All firing line positions are covered and the black curtains form shell catchers. Any pistol caliper can be used with straight wall shells.
Lower pistol range located to the left down the hill from the rifle range has one covered shooting bench and a 20 yard target. Any pistol caliper can be used with straight wall shells.
Rifle range has 25, 50, 100 and 200 yard targets. Shooting benches are covered and have a concrete floor for shooting prone and easier clean up of shells. Please pick up all empty shell casings to reduce clutter and prevent slips or falls. Use paper targets only. Do not use any tin or glass targets, bouncing targets, explosive targets, green tip or tracer ammo. Use shooting benches that line up with your target. No cross shooting. No shooting from the parking areas. All caliber ammo is permitted. When setting up to shoot make sure your gun is unloaded and at least have the action open or in a carry case. The range flag should be on the firing line when everyone is clear in front of the firing line and should be placed at least 10 feet in front of the firing line if anyone is down range affixing targets, etc. It is requested that you notify others if you are going to fire or you need to go downrange for any reason. It is also requested that you notify anyone on the upper pistol range if you are going to add/change targets or shoot the 200 yard target.
All ranges require shooting only at the shooting line when individual shooting is occurring. Only under group shooting controlled by accredited supervision can shooting occur at other locations. Specifically no tactical shooting can be permitted by an individual.
Many shoots are open to the public and will be announced. Most will have a minimum fee to cover costs. They will be posted on the web site and newsletter and are on the calendar in the club house.
The Junior Rifle Team practices year round in the club house on Monday and Tuesday starting at 6 PM.
When leaving the facility and you are the last one out, please assure the entry gate is locked. If you used the club house make sure all lights are out and entry doors locked. If there are others on the club grounds, the entry gate remains open for emergency purposes.
Practicing weapon safety is #1 at ISA. Please be a responsible member as you enjoy the sport of shooting.
