Live fire warning signs


August 12, 2008, 05:11 PM
Does anyone have the URL of a good but cheap live fire warning sign? I have those hard plastic POSTED signs but i also want a live fire warning sign because we often shoot in our own back yard. There are a few sites that let you make your own sign but those are often more expensive. The preferred material is hard plastic.

We have a reliable backstop but you never know what might happen. Better safe than sorry. Besides the sign would definatly make someone think twice before trespassing!

I've never heard of them, let alone seen them anywhere but military test ranges. And i saw them in pictures.

I don't know where to buy them but there is one every fifty feet or so all along the fence at the Barry M. Goldwater missile testing range between Gila Bend and Ajo in AZ. The fence goes on for miles.

This thread needs images...

I know. I'm not helping. I did find this while looking though.

The NRA sells them.

I don't know about the quality, but they say they are "virtually weatherproof" and at 5 for $13, you're not out much if they aren't.

That's a good one, EShell. I knew I'd seen some on some specialty sign sites, but couldn't find any earlier.

Here's a few more for abrink:
A cheap plastic version:
A cheap aluminum one:

A few signs, and a red flag raised on a flagpole high overhead would be just the thing.

lol. Well most LE ranges use the standardized RED FLAG which they adopted from the military. If you want to - you could just make one yourself "Warning" Live Fire etc.

I think i'm gonna get this one:

That should encourage people to take their afternoon walk elsewhere. It should also cover my butt if someone's dumb enough to come on my property and we happen to be shooting at the time.

Thanks everyone. Your help, as always, is appreciated.

I have always liked those "Danger, Artillery or rockets overhead" sign posted on the side of the roads on army bases. What am I going to do? Drive faster? Duck down a bit in my car?
