OK, I’ll bite.
Yes to all the RSD / RAM parameters.
We are talking about an indoor 5.5 air rifle range here, not a field firing area. The Army (SSC) clearly see all single shot bolt-action rifles as a wpns of war, hence they work to over-controlled / over-specified requirements. This is especially so for air rifle.
Typically, we run most CLF shooting on a parade evening; the first aid / ammo orderly requirements could easily be relaxed. As with any range, as long as as the first aid person is readily available (for example in a staff office 5m away from our hall), then that is permissible - & that person could then be productive for a parade evening.
A huge faff is having to have someone available to issue INERT lead pellets. No-one can say that is not an exercise in futility! Who is going to steal lead pellets from the “ammo table” should the RCO (heresy, heresy) be approved to put out ammunition??
Flexibility - unlike the Army where the SPO would normally be available, this is not always the case for CFAV SPOs who generally have a full-time job to run; I might not know about lack of staff availability until about 15 mins before shooting is planned on an evening. I certainly cannot get hold of the SPO at that short notice. Shooting cancelled.
Similarly, if an activity cannot go ahead at very short notice, I could get a range ready to rock in 15 mins, but there is no way i can submit an RSD for "wet signature / get it returned / action Bader SMS approval / get final Wg approval (normally SPO of course) within 3 days as a bare minimum - & that assumes full availability in the approval chain (& of course, my availability to cobble together the admin faff). Realistically, I try to allow a week. Flexibility here = zero. The other option is to pre-submit all the nause for EVERY parade evening in case the range is required; guess what the SPO would say to that?
All this for air rifle - the Scouts manage with an A4 page of guidance; I don’t recall reading in the media about Scouts being decimated on their air rifle ranges…
Why do we make things so difficult?? This could easily be made simpler, less restrictive but still stay safe. A “standing” RSD for say a 3 month period for basic air rifle CLF would really help, but hey, let’s keep things as obstructive as possible.
