I'm pretty sure that centerfire rifle cartridges are not permitted.. it is a pistol club and they had to pull teeth to get the ability to allow 22rimfire, not sure about 17's..

Would you be so kind as to stop shouting and show me where this rule is written?
I have been a member for years and have never seen it.
It is not written in the club rules or anywhere else I have seen but if it is in fact there I will abide my it.
Otherwise it is hearsay, and rumor.

Please tell me where rule 14 (or any other rule) says anything about not being able to shoot .22 magnum, or says anything about what caliber pistols are allowed on the pistol range.

You're right, pop-gunner, that the range rules published on the club Web site are unclear on this point. I'll raise it with the officers and ask them to clarify the published rules.

Thank you Ragnar.
Not many things bug me more than people imagining rules and stating them as fact.
Especially in this state and the current political climate.
It is pretty clear that other than a .22 rimfire no other rifles are even allowed on the property but I have never seen a thing dictating which caliber pistols are, or are not allowed.
If it's a noise issue it should be pointed out that a .357 Magnum at 164 decibels is louder than a 7.5 inch .223 pistol with a decent break so just imagine the sound from a .44, or .500 magnum.
Sounds like some people don't like a scary looking gun that holds more than 10 bullets.

The way it's been described to me, the issue has more to do with muzzle velocity and the possiblity of a stray round exiting the berms.

I am told that the range rules are being re-written and that a new version will be published soon that will explicitly address the issue of rifle-caliber pistols. I also believe they're looking at large-caliber pistol like .460 and .500.

The only rifle caliber allowed is 22 LR/L/S. 22 magnum and 17 are not, even though people shoot them there.

The rules are really fuzzy and not clearly written. I've told the president and VP they can't enforce rules that are not clearly stated. The range risks losing its waiver from the county by not clearly stating the rules on the Website and on the rules signs posted at the range, because members continue to shoot ammo prohibited by the waiver.
