Filling the ranks of Range Safety Officers is an ongoing project at Redmond Rod and Gun Club.  This is a volunteer position which is required for the Rifle / Pistol venue.

Advantages of becoming an RSO:

Shooting at Rifle / Pistol range free of charge

You receive a key so that you can shoot even when the club is closed

You have a range open within a few miles of town which is safe, clean and a public asset

When you realize the public benefits of the Redmond Rod and Gun Club, how that extends to the entire shooting community, and how you being involved as an RSO enables that to continue, you then realize the biggest advantage to you and our entire community.

People are trained at RRandGC from young to old.  We have Hunter Education, Boy Scouts, 4-H, High School Shooting Teams, and safe weapon handling classes for concealed carry permit applicants.  There is ongoing training for marksmanship, specialized training for handguns, rifles, shotguns and home defense.  Other training at the club includes law enforcement and armed security officer training.   Your training as an RSO plus your experiences and safe handling skills are a valuable commodity and they influence the shooters who come to the club.

The minimum expectation of an RSO time-wise is two shifts per month.  Many of us contribute more through work parties.  Some work only summers, some work 4 shifts then take a month off.  It is a volunteer position, not a lifetime commitment.  

If you are a safety conscious experienced firearms enthusiast, come out and give us a try.  See how you can contribute. 


Thank you for your efforts to keep shooting, as a safe activity.
