Standards of Behavior and Disciplinary Actions

The Capitol City Rifle & Pistol Club Board of Directors recently acted to expel a member from the
club due to a confrontational incident. The Executive Committee of the Board conducted a
thorough review of the incident and determined the appropriate course of action through a
unanimous vote. That course of action was upheld through a vote of the entire Board of

The Executive Committee determined that the member had demonstrated a pattern of
aggressive behavior while attempting to enforce range rules and procedures. While the motive
for enforcing range rules may have been well intended, the methods employed eventually lead
to a serious confrontation with a high potential of becoming violent.

CCRP Club members must always treat other members and guests with courtesy and respect.
We all have a responsibility to politely point out safety issues when we observe them. However,
we cannot escalate a conversation into a confrontation. If a member does not correct a safety
issue, or you feel that the conditions on the range remain unsafe, please leave the range and
submit an Incident Report to the Club Safety Officer. Any incident requiring a Law Enforcement
response or EMS (Emergency Medical Service) must be reported to the Club President
immediately. The Incident Report form can be found on the club web site at
under Forms/Documents. Please provide as much detailed information as possible including
names, license plate numbers, and a complete description of the incident. The Executive
Committee will review and take appropriate action on all Incident Reports. The members of the
Executive Committee are identified on the back page of the Plinker, and can be contacted
through the club web site.
