VANDALISM at the VERANDALISM
 

June 28/2022 - Vandalism at the Vermilion Gun Range !

The Board of Directors of the Vermilion Gun Club would like to call attention to a recent incident of Vandalism at the gun range facilities and remind both club members and their guests that this type of behavior and lack of respect for Vermilion Gun Club property will not be tolerated.  This type of vandalism also poses the risk of the gun range being shut down upon a CFO Inspection. All rounds being placed down range must be placed within the target berm perimeters.

Recently the signage identifying the 25 yard berm was replaced due to being shot up and a new sign was installed. It was put up last Wednesday or Thursday and by this past Sunday the new sign was shot up. The new sign lasted no more than three days. The new sign was placed well to the left on the main target area and is not backed by a berm which makes it an unsafe target situation. Signage identifying the yardage of the various berms are not to be considered approved targets and should never be used as a target. 

As a result of this and other previous similar incidents of vandalism the VGC Board of Directors is advising all VGC members that any member found to have committed this offence or similar vandalism offences will have their VGC membership permanently revoked. If a guest of a member committed any act of vandalism similar to this incident the hosting member will have his or her membership revoked.

A reminder to all VGC members that you are responsible for the actions of any guests that you bring to the Vermilion Gun Club range and facilities. Failure to properly supervise or instruct your guests on VGC rules and safety protocols will not be tolerated. Failure as a member to follow posted range signage and range safety rules will not be tolerated.

June 28/ 2022 - VGC Range Firing Line Safety Procedures

In order to promote the safest environment possible at the Vermilion Gun Range the VGC Board of Directors would like to clarify the proper use of the Red Flag and Green Flag system adopted several years ago.

1. Red Flag Flying
 When the Red Flags are flying it is safe to shoot,  to uncase and stage firearms and to move between 
the Red Firing Line ( the red line on the concrete pad) and the Yellow Dotted Line (running down the     center of the shooting area/shed.
At no time may anyone move forward (downrange) of the Red Firing Line when the Red Flag is flying.
When a Cease Fire is called the Red Flag is removed and the Green Flag is flown
.
2. Green Flag Flying
 When the Green Flags are flying ALL INDIVIDUALS must unload and leave actions open. 
The range is then declared SAFE.
It is now safe to go downrange and either put up targets, check targets or remove targets. 
When the Green Flags are flying all other individuals NOT GOING DOWNRANGE are to move       behind the YELLOW DOTTED LINE and to the SAFE AREA. 
No firearms or ammunition  may be handled until the Red Flag is again raised. Firearms may not be moved, cased or touched in any manner when the Green Flags are flying
.

New signage clarifying these procedures will soon be installed at the gun range. For further information regarding the Vermilion Gun Club Range Rules and Procedures please refer to the Range Rules section of this website.
