INTERLAKE SPORTING ASSOCIATION
A GUN & ARCHERY RANGE IN REDMOND, WASHINGTON
The purpose of the Safe Handling Exam is not to require that all members of ISA be expert marksman. It is our intention to verify that a prospective (or current) member can both keep all rounds on paper as well as demonstrate sufficiently competent gun handling and muzzle awareness that it be reasonable for them to have access to the facility and shooting ranges unsupervised.
We recognize that the pressure of shooting in an evaluation does add stress that may influence someone’s aim thus our primary concern is keeping all rounds in the impact surface and not proficiency. However, in terms of safe gun handling there are no exceptions and failure to any degree will be considered a fail.
Because we have a variety of members that may either only own a pistol or a rifle, the Safe Handling Exam will be administered on the applicant's choice of platform. The approved target for the Interlake Safe Handling Exam is a 17”x11” sheet of plain paper (two 8.5x11 sheets of paper taped together).
In the case of Archery the Safe Handling Exam is slightly different and will be administered as described in a later section.
The RSO administering the Safe Handling Exam will record individually if the applicant met the standard for safe handling and rounds/arrows into the impact surface, and also log an overall pass or fail on the Safe Handling Exam Results sheet located following the course of fire description.
