    Changes To Rules At Ben Avery


    For immediate release, June 16, 2008

    Shooting range expands safety requirements for users

    PHOENIX — Effective July 1, target shooters heading out to the Ben Avery Shooting Facility need to remember to include a couple basic safety items before hitting the road.

    The following two policy changes will take effect at the facility’s Main Range:

    All firearms must be in a case or properly holstered to enter the main range. (Gun socks and scabbards will no longer be allowed as a substitute.)
    Eye protection must be worn by shooters and spectators while on the main range. (Sunglasses and prescription eyewear are acceptable substitutes.)
    “Both policy changes are being driven solely for the safety of our customers and staff members working at the range,” says Ben Avery Shooting Facility Range Manager Marty Herrera Sr. “This also reinforces safety awareness with customers when handling or transporting firearms - even when they are away from the facility.”

    For your convenience, these items are available for purchase in the Shooting Sports Store.

    Shooters are also reminded that summer hours are now in effect allowing evening shooting under lights, but with some mid-day closures during peak temperatures. For more information about visiting the Ben Avery shooting Facility, go to www.azgfd.gov/basf.
