TOMBSTONE PISTOL SHOOT

The First Sunday of the month on Bay 3

Setup & signup starts at 8:00am. Signup closes at 9:00am and safety briefing begins which you must attend to precipitate in the event.

This is a pistol shooting event using tombstone paper targets and steel targets.  This is not a “run & gun” event, you shoot from a single position.  Three stages of fire; you shoot 3-4 times for each stage for time and score.  The stages are easy to understand and will be the same each month.  You can see how you improve each month.  The event is more about shooting skill than equipment.  You can also practice shooting at MSC for this event.

 What you need to participate in the event: Ear and eye protection, a centerfire semi auto-pistol in 9mm-45 caliber with iron sights fiber front okay (with no optics sights or ported/comp barrels), Pistol bag/case, the case/box it came in or outside the waist band hip holster, 4 minimum, 5 best, 10 round magazines (if you don’t have 5 mags we can work around it till you have them) you will only be loading 10 rounds per mag at a time, so hi cap mags are fine, but not necessary, a minimum of 100 rounds (best to bring 50 extra rounds) of target ammunition, no hollow points.  A willingness to help is a must for one person cannot do everything i.e.: setting 13 targets, resetting targets, taping targets, scoring and being an RO.

Fees: $5.00 members, $20.00 non-members

Match Information and upcoming event information is available via e-mail if you sign up for it with the match director.

Newsletter

November 2020

From the President

Ballots for voting for the Club President and for Bylaw revisions have been mailed.  It appears that the printer may have made some mistakes, so, if you didn’t receive any information or receive a ballot ask for either at the Range Office.

Votes will be counted and the results announced at the Board Meeting on Dec. 10th.

We continue to upgrade our facility; adding cameras, buying a new tractor, and generally improving things to make shooting here more fun and safer.

We added a new employee, Kirk Sears who will be living out at the Trap/skeet range and doing maintenance and odd jobs for us.

A new raffle will be starting soon.  We will be raffling off, a spotting scope and a new Glock 9mm.

Let’s take a moment and talk about the range.  Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak and all the restrictions, when I was out with friends, I would listen to them talk about, golf courses, movies, places to eat, places they would go to gamble and such.  Never have I heard anyone talk about going to the range and participating in some match with friends.  How odd.  Today with so many things shut down, one of the few places we can meet, shoot, and enjoy friends is the range.  I always talk about our range, how nice it is, how many different activities are offered, having fun with the group I shoot with.  With all the new gun owners about this would be a good time to spread the word.  

A reminder that the holidays are coming soon, a gift certificate, a raffle ticket or even a membership would make a very, nice gift for someone.

I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Respectfully,

Doc

NEW STEEL TARGETS INSTALLED AT THE 1,000yd RANGE

Gentleman,
Today was a BIG day at the 1000 yard range. We had 3 volunteers today to assist me with the tasks. Justin Copeland Chuck Smith and Mike Adam.
I delivered 29 pieces of 1″ thick Hardox steel targets. We had to do an little modification to the original m&m target hangers but that was accomplished easily by the certified welder Mike Adam’s.  
We hung 5 large steel targets at the back berm and will be welding 5/8 cold roll onto the supports next month and will hang the other 5 smaller steel targets in March.
I am submitting photos of the work done today.  A total of 12 volunteer hours was registered in the books.  
Any questions please contact me.
