Just a few months ago, PMRPC spent a substantial amount of money replacing all of the steel plates in the plate racks in the Action Area. As you should all know, the plates are constructed of steel that is resistant to pistol fire even at close range. As long as only pistols are used on the racks, and the racks are rotated regularly, they will last a long time. But over the past COUPLE of weeks, members have shot at all three plate racks with rifles, instantly rendering them unsafe to use. The total damage is about $1,460.
All the plates will be removed from the racks immediately. They will be down until new plates can be purchased.
Because we have video cameras on the ranges, we can track down the various culprits and hold them accountable. There is lot of time and effort involved in doing this, so range officials are not inclined to be generous with the offenders.
ANYONE who is caught shooting rifle-caliber cartridges at the plate racks will be held financially responsible for replacing the damaged plates, and may be the subject of further disciplinary action. It doesn't matter if it's a matter of ignorance, carelessness, or willful vandalism.
