Safety at The Fairfax Rod and Gun Club
Safety at the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club is the primary responsibility of every member, family member, and guest. Absolute adherence to our safety rules is expected at all times. Shooting safety is achieved by following the Four Rules of Gun Safety and the rules set forth within the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club's Range Rules.
The Four Rules of Gun Safety:
- All guns are always loaded.
- Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
- Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
- Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Range Safety Orientation Classes:
A key element of safety at the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club is the Range Safety Orientation (RSO) class, held on the first Saturday of every month. The RSO class is required for all club members and is a good idea for everyone else who enjoys our club, in leagues, as family members, or guests. When attending the RSO, wear comfortable shoes, have hearing and eye protection, a notebook and a pen, and bring your full attention!
Safe Shooting and See You on the Range!
