Any rifle brought to the range must come; unloaded, removable magazines must be removed, bolt/action must be open, and ECIs (empty chamber indicators) must be inserted. The rifle must remain in this condition at all times except when under the direction of a Range Official.
Rifles may not be handled until on the firing line and under the direction of a Range Officer. After the Range Officer begins the preparation period shooters may; handle their rifle, move into the firing position, remove the ECI and dry fire the rifle. No live rounds may be loaded in the rifle, tube or magazine during the preparation period.
