Range Safety Officers (RSO)

This is to inform you of some changes to the RSO program. If you have not sent me a copy of your up to date RSO certification, you will be removed from the RSO group for the club. You need to go to the NRA instructor portal to renew your certification. Certification needs to be renewed every two years You can be easily added back to the RSO list after your renewal. For RSO guest vouchers, you need to do 4hrs of RSO duty to be eligible Please remember, to be eligible for the dues discount you will need to complete 8hrs of volunteer time. If you any questions about this please contact me. The Chapter is updating the Range Regulations. Once completed and approved, all RSO's will be required to review the new regulation and take a 3-question annual RSO test before pulling RSO duty. This will help RSO's understand the new regulation and ensure its compliance.

Range Safety Officers (RSO) are appointed by the Chapter Executive Committee supervise range operations during training, when inexperienced individuals may need a more formal safety education, supervision, or competition, for organized group activities, and for the monthly member sponsored guest weekends.

RSOs are trained and qualified IAW NRA RSO course. If you are already qualified as an NRA RSO, then you will need to audit one of our NRA RSO courses to become familiar with our ranges and procedures.

Occasionally some new members ask if their military or police range experience would allow them to help as RSO. For background information, the NRA provides the insurance for shooting sports in this country not the Federal or local governments. So we have to have our RSO's trained and qualified in accordance with the NRA training syllabus.

Once trained as an RSO, serving qualifies one for our dues discount and the privilege to bring guests on to the Rifle and Pistol Ranges at time of their choosing and not limited to the Guest First Sunday.
