Safety Matters Shooting sports have an excellent safety record - and that is no accident!There is no hiding the fact that firearms can be lethal and yet thousands of people shoot without anyone being injured. There is one simple reason behind this and that is - DISCIPLINE. It is only when the rules get broken that people get hurt.If the golden principles are adhered to, at all time, by everyone, then our sport will remain one of the safety possible pursuits in the country. Only load when you are in a position to shoot and have been cleared to do so.Always keep the muzzle pointed downrange within the 70 mil rule.Only shoot when there is a safe back-stop or fallout zone.If you have a problem, remain calm and keep the muzzle pointed downrange.Only handle firearms when they are unloaded and proven clear.Only proceed forward of any firing point when directed to do so and all firearms have been proven clear.If in doubt ASK!And, lastly - protect your hearing at all times. You don't get used to noise, you go deaf.These principles can be expanded on and are not our range rules, they are the overarching principles by which the CDRPC has maintained its excellent safety record since 1945.At our Club, we pride ourselves on rigorous application of these golden principles thereby assuring all those who participate and those who could be affected, remain safe and well.In short, poor safety will simply not be tolerated at the CDRPC. Therefore whether an existing member, or simply thinking about joining, you can feel safe in the knowledge that behaviour is monitored and where necessary challenged. Our qualified and highly experienced Range Conducting Officers (RCOs) run every detail professionally and WILL take issue with anyone not following best practice. For any shooters wishing to join us, please do not be offended if we monitor you quite closely initially. We mean no disrespect, but we do not know you and your habits. The probationary period for gun clubs was lowered to 3 months. At the CDRPC, we adhere to the older standard of 6 months with the view that for you to join us, we must have the opportunity to observe your safety profile. Only then will an offer of membership be made. Of course anyone being ejected from the Club on safety grounds will be notified immediately to the enforcing authority.CDRPC Chairman

Radio Message Codes
Message codes between butts and firing pointThe following messages should be used for communication between the Firing Point and the Butts. The target number is given followed by the message code.
ACTIONThe combined parts of a firearm that determine how a firearm is loaded, discharged and unloaded. Most handguns are referred to as "single-action" or "double-action." A single-action firearm requires the user to manually pull back the hammer before the firearm allows the user to either manually cock the hammer or simply pull the trigger and allow the firearm to cock and release the hammer on its own.ACTION, AUTOMATICA firearm that loads, fires, and ejects cartridges as long as the trigger is depressed and there are cartridges available in the feeding system (i.e. magazine or other such mechanism). Automatic action firearms are machine guns. Note: Since 1934 it has been unlawful to sell or possess an automatic firearm without special permission and licensing from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, in addition to other measures.ACTION, BOLTA firearm, typically a rifle, that is manually loaded, cocked, and unloaded by pulling a bolt mechanism up and back to eject a spent cartridge and load another. Bolt action firearms are popular for hunting, target shooting, and biathlon events. A bolt action rifle allows the shooter maximum accuracy, but may be too slow or cumbersome for some shooting sports.ACTION, LEVERA firearm, typically a rifle, that is loaded, cocked, and unloaded by an external lever usually located below the receiver. Note: The type of rifle used in most Western movies is a lever-action.ACTION, PUMPA firearm that features a movable forearm that is manually actuated to chamber a round, eject the casing, and put another round in position to fire.ACTION, SEMI-AUTOMATICA firearm in which each pull of the trigger results in a complete firing cycle, from discharge through reloading. It is necessary that the trigger be released and pulled for each cycle. These firearms are also called "autoloaders" or "self-loaders." The discharge and chambering of a round is either blowback operated, recoil operated, or gas operated. Note: An automatic action firearm loads, discharges, and reloads as long as ammunition is available and the trigger is depressed. A semi-automatic firearm only discharges one cartridge with each squeeze of the trigger.AMMUNITIONA loaded cartridge consisting of a primed case, propellant, and a projectile. Among the many types of ammunition are centerfire rifle and pistol, rimfire, shotshells, and reloads.AMMUNITION, SMALL ARMSA military term used to describe ammunition for firearms with bores (the interior of the barrel) not larger than one inch in diameter.ARMS, SMALLAny firearm capable of being carried by a person and fired without additional mechanical support.ARMOR PIERCINGSee BULLET, ARMOR PIERCINGBALLISTICSThe science of studying projectiles. Ballistics can be "interior" (inside the gun), "exterior" (in the air), or "terminal" (at the point of impact). Ballistic comparison is the attempt to microscopically match a bullet or fired cartridge case to a particular firearm.BARRELThat part of a firearm through which a projectile travels. The barrel may be rifled (i.e., with spiral grooves on the interior of the barrel) or smooth bore (i.e., a smooth interior barrel with no grooves).BBSpherical shot having a diameter of .180" used in shotshell loads. The term is also used to designate steel or lead air rifle shot of .175" diameter.BENCHRESTA table specifically designed to eliminate as much human error as possible by supporting a rifle for competitive shooting or sighting-in purposes.BIG BOREIn America , any firearm using a centerfire cartridge with a bullet .30" in diameter or larger.BIRDSHOTSmall lead or steel pellets used in shotshells ranging in size from #12 (less than the diameter of a pencil point) to #4 (about .10" in diameter) used for short-range bird and small game hunting.BOREThe interior barrel forward of the chamber.BORE DIAMETEROn rifled barrels, the interior diameter of the barrel from the tops of the lands (the highest point of the grooves). On a smooth barrel, the interior dimension of the barrel forward of the chamber (not including the chose on the shotgun barrels).BUCKSHOTLarge lead pellets ranging in size from .20" to .36" diameter normally loaded in shotshells used for deer hunting.BULLETA non spherical projectile for use in a rifled barrel.BULLET, ARMOR PIERCINGA projectile or projectile core that may be used in a handgun intended to pierce steel armor that is constructed entirely, or has a core constructed, from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, depleted uranium, or a fully jacketed projectile larger than 22 caliber intended for use in a handgun whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile. The term does not include shotgun shot or projectiles intended for sporting purposes. Note: The Gun Control Act of 1968 (18 U.S.C. Sec. 922 (a) (7)) prohibits the manufacture of sale of armor piercing ammunition, except for use by law enforcement and the military.BULLET, DUMDUMA British military bullet developed in India 's Dum-Dum Arsenal in 1897-98. It was a jacketed .303 caliber rifle bullet with the jacket most left open to expose the lead core in hopes of greater effectiveness. Further development of the bullet was not pursued because the Hague Convention of 1899 outlawed and such bullets for warfare.BULLET ENGRAVINGThe grooves cut into a bullet by barrel rifling. Note: When a bullet travels down the barrel, the grooves (or rifling) leave an imprint on the bullet. The matching of the marks on a bullet to the rifling of a particular firearm is an important tool for law enforcement in determining whether a bullet was fired from a particular firearm.BULLET, FULL METAL JACKETA projectile in which the bullet jacket (a metallic cover over the core of a bullet) encloses most of the core with the exception of the base. They are used mostly for target shooting and military use.BULLET, HOLLOW POINTA bullet with a cavity in the nose, exposing the lead core, to facilitate expansion upon impact. Hollow point cartridges are used for hunting, self-defense, police use, and other situations to avoid over penetration.BULLET, WADCUTTERA generally cylindrical bullet design having a sharp shouldered nose intended to cut paper targets cleanly to facilitate easy and accurate shooting.BUTTOn handguns, it is the bottom part of the grip. On long guns, it is the rear or shoulder end of the stock.CALIBERA term used to designate the specific cartridges for which a firearm is chambered. It is the approximate diameter of the circle formed by the tops of the lands of a rifled barrel. It is the numerical term included in the cartridge name to indicate a rough approximation of the bullet diameter (i.e. .30 caliber- .308" diameter bullet).CARBINEA rifle of short length and light weight originally designed for horse-mounted troops.CARTRIDGEA single round of ammunition consisting of the case, primer, propellant, powder, and one or more projectiles.CARTRIDGE, CENTERFIREAny cartridge intended for use in rifle, pistols, and revolvers that it has its primer central to the axis at the head of the case. Note: Most cartridges, including shotshells, are centerfire with the exception of 22 caliber rimfire ammunition. If you were to look at the bottom of a centerfire cartridge, you would see a small circle in the middle of the base, hence, "centerfire." There are a few rimfire ammunition calibers besides the 22, but they are rare and not widely available.CARTRIDGE, MAGNUMAny cartridge or shotshell that is larger, contains more shot, or produces a high 46 velocity than standard cartridges or shotshells of a given caliber or gauge.CARTRIDGE, RIMFIREA cartridge containing the priming mixture in the rim of the base, usually a 22.CARTRIDGE, SMALL BOREA general term that refers to rimfire cartridges. Normally 22 caliber ammunition used for target shooting, plinking, and small game hunting.CHAMBERIn a rifle, pistol, or shotgun, it is the part of a barrel that accepts the ammunition. In a revolver, it refers to the holes in the cylinder where the cartridges are loaded.CHOKEAn interior tube at the end of a shotgun barrel that controls shot dispersion. Chokes typically come in cylinder, improved cylinder, modified, improve modified, and full. Note: A cylinder choke produces a very wide shot dispersion, whereas a full chose will provide a much tighter shot pattern. Different chokes are used for skeet, trap, and sporting clays. In hunting, the type of game and conditions will determine choke type.CLIPSee MAGAZINE.COCKTo place the hammer, or striker, in position for firing by pulling it back fully.CYLINDERThe round, rotatable part of a revolver that contains the cartridge chambers.DERRINGERA generic term referring to many variations of pocket-sized pistols. The name comes from the pistol's original designer, Henry Derringer. Note: According to the American Derringer Company, Henry Deringer's name is spelled with one 'R.' The proper spelling of Derringer firearms is with two 'R's.DISCHARGETo cause a firearm to fire.DOUBLE BARRELTwo barrels on a firearm mounted to one frame. The barrels can be vertically (over-under) or horizontally (side-by-side) aligned.DUMDUMSee BULLET; DUMDUMFIREARMAn assembly of a barrel and action from which is projectile is propelled as a result of combustion.FIRING PINThe part of a firearm that strikes the primer cartridge to start the ignition of the primer.FLASH SUPPRESSORAn attachment to the muzzle designed to reduce muzzle flash. Note: A flash suppressor is not a silencer.FULL COCKThe position of the hammer when the firearm is ready to fire.GAUGEA term used to identify most shotgun bores, with the exception of the .410 shotgun. It relates to the number of bore diameter lead balls weighing one pound. Note: the .410 shotgun is a caliber. The .410 refers to the diameter of the barrel.10 gauge - .775 inch12 gauge - .730 inch16 gauge - .670 inch20 gauge - .615 inch28 gauge - .550 inch67 gauge - .410 inchGROUPA series of shots fired at the target used to adjust the sights or determine the accuracy of a firearm.HALF COCKThe position of the hammer about half retracted and intended to prevent release of the hammer by a normal pull of the trigger.HAMMERThe part of the firing mechanism that strikes the firing pin, which, in turn, strikes the primer.HAMMERLESSA firearm having an internal hammer or striker.JACKETThe envelope enclosing the lead core of a bullet.JAMA malfunction that prevents the action from operating. Jams may be caused by faulty or altered parts, ammunition, poor maintenance of the firearm, or improper use of the firearm.JUMPThe upward and rearward recoil of a firearm when it is fired. It is commonly called recoil or "kick."LANDSThe uncut surface of the bore of a rifled barrel.LOADThe combination of components used to assemble a cartridge or shotshell. The term also refers to the act of putting ammunition into a firearmMACHINE GUNSee ACTION, AUTOMATIC.MAGAZINEA receptacle on a firearm that holds several cartridges or shells for feeding into the chamber. Magazines take many forms, such as box, drum, rotary, or tubular and may be fixed or removable. Note: The 1994 crime bill banned the manufacture and importation of magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds.MAGNUMSee CARTRIDGE, MAGNUMMISFIREA failure of the cartridge to fire after the primer has been struck by the firing pin.MUZZLEThe front end of a firearm barrel from which the bullet or shot emerges.MUZZLE FLASHThe illumination (flash) resulting from the expanding gases from the burning propellant particles emerging from the barrel behind the projectile and uniting with oxygen in the air.MUZZLE LOADERAny firearm loaded through the muzzle.

See ACTION, SEMI-AUTOMATIC for a description of how these pistols operate.PISTOL, DOUBLE ACTIONA pistol mechanism in which a single pull of the trigger cocks and releases the hammer.PISTOL, SINGLE ACTIONA pistol mechanism that requires the manual cocking of the hammer before the trigger releases the firing mechanism.PLINKINGThe informal shooting at inanimate objects at indefinite points. Note: Plinking typically refers to casual shooting at pine cones, tin cans, or other such objects for fun and practice.POWDERCommonly used term for the propellant in a cartridge or shotshell. See also PROPELLANT.POWDER, BLACKThe earliest type of propellant, allegedly made by the Chinese or Hindus. First used for firearms in the 13th century, it is a mechanical mixture of potassium or sodium nitrate, charcoal, and sulfur. It makes a large cloud of smoke when fired.POWDER, SMOKELESSA modern propellant containing mainly nitrocellulose or both nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin. Relatively little smoke is created when fired.PRESSUREThe force developed by the expanding gases generated by the combustion of the propellant.PRIMERThe ignition component consisting of brass or gilding metal cup, priming mixture, anvil, and foiling disc. It creates a spark when hit by a firing pin, igniting the propellant powder.PROPELLANTThe chemical composition which, when ignited by a primer, generate gas. The gas propels the projectile. See also POWDERRECEIVERThe basic unit of a firearm which houses the firing mechanism and to which the barrel and stock are assembled. In revolvers, pistols and break-open firearms, it is called the frame.RECOILThe rearward movement of a firearm resulting from firing a cartridge or shell.RECOIL PADA butt plate, usually made of rubber, to reduce the recoil or "kick" of shoulder firearms.RELOADA round of ammunition that has been assembled using fired cases. Note: Reloading is very popular among recreational target shooters, competitive shooters, and hunters. In addition to being cost-effective, reloading enables shooters to develop ammunition specifically designed for particular shooting disciplines or games.REVOLVERA firearm with a cylinder having several chambers so arranged as to rotate around an axis and be discharged successively by the same firing mechanism. A semi-automatic pistol is not a revolver because it does not have a revolving cylinder.RIFLEA firearm having spiral grooves in the bore and designed to be fired from the shoulder.

Note: Hair triggers are frequently used on a competitive target rifles and pistols for increased accuracy. The reduced force needed to pull the trigger allows the shooter's firearm to remain steady.TRIGGER LOCKAn accessory for blocking a firearm from unauthorized use. Most trigger lock manufacturers advise against the use of a trigger lock on a loaded firearm, as shifting the lock against the trigger could fire the gun.TRIGGER PULLThe average force which must be applied to the trigger to cause the firearm to fire.
