WHEIA Trailers

 

WHEIA presently has three instructor trailers. Two of these trailers are stocked and available for youth shooting events by WHEIA members.

A third trailer is presently being worked on which we hope to complete by the end of 2014.

The original WHEIA trailer has been retired.

As an organization we have the goal to place at least one of these trailers fully stocked in each of our regions.

WHEIA Pellet Range

 

Prior to the use and set up of the pellet range, instructors must visit and work with members using the range to note how various components are connected and organized.

When not at a WHEIA fund raising event, WHEIA has a $50 fee for member organizations to use the range equipment solely to cover operation costs to refill the air tanks, replenish pellets, and to maintain the air guns.

All three trailers have an operable pellet range. Users need to have a WHEIA member knowledgeable on how to set up the range, manifolds, and pellet rifles on hand when first using the range.

The manifolds may be set up for ether 2 or 3 rifles that may be connected at any one time. Shooting rests, tables, chairs, targets, and misc support items are in the trailer in addition to a pellet wooden pellet trap. Cardboard behind the felt should be replaced by the users as it becomes shot out.

All trailers have a 10 x 20 canopy. Indoors, the end section of the canopy supports a doubled felt curtain to stop pellets that may miss the trap. The shooting tables and rests should be set up no closer than 12 feet from the trap.


NO steel resettable targets are to be used! SAFETY GLASSES MUST BE WORN BY SHOOTERS AND INSTRUCTORS!

From experience, a minimum of three individuals are needed to run the range:

Coach (one per shooter)
Loader (reloads pellet clips and controls shooters)
Range Safety Officer.

The Range Safety Officer should maintain control of the operation at all times.
