No explosive, armor piercing, or incendiary ammunition (i.e. tracer ammo) is to be used on Chapter property.
If your Firearm is not holstered the firearm action must be in the opened position and barrel pointed in a safe direction. Example: When a handgun, rifle or shotgun are not in use and placed on the bench in a staging area.

At the 100-yard Rifle bay and the 4 pistol bays, shoot only from inside berm. No berm, no shoot. At the Trap and Skeet Range, no pistol or rifle shooting is allowed (no berms).
As you enter the grounds, the Pioneer Village is on the left. Absolutely no discharges of firearms are permitted in this area. Also during Pioneer Events there will be no OPEN CARRY on Horry WLA Property. Concealed carry is acceptable.
Persons under age 18 must have adult (Parent or Guardian) supervision.
All range users are personally responsible for their actions and that of their guests.
Shoot into back stops only. All targets must be placed at least one (1) foot from edges on all wood backboards.
No unauthorized targets ( example: cans, bottles, or exploding targets, etc.) No shooting at target frames.
After shooting please remove used targets, empty bottles and any other trash in the Pistol or Rifle Range area. Even if you did not leave a mess, please check the area and correct any deficiency.
Authorized targets are any paper targets which are generally used for target practice. For example: a target downloaded from the internet from an NRA site, silhouette targets, paper plates, or your own metal targets which you remove after shooting. The examples given above are only a partial listing, If you are unsure of a target you wish to use, contact the current President or a Board Member for clarification. Remember remove your used targets from the range upon completion of your target practice and police your used brass.
The Steel Targets (when set up) in Bays 1-2-3 are the property of SASS (Cowboy Action) and are not to be used by anyone else. SASS reserves the listed Bays and pays a fee for their use. If you are shooting in one of those Bays on the day designated for SASS activity SASS has the right to ask you to stop shooting and move to another open Bay not used by SASS. You may bring your own steel targets for practice and take them with you when you are finished shooting.
