This is the official bulletin board of the Mohave Sportsman Club. This is where you’ll find the latest news regarding the club, upcoming events, important announcements, new raffles and winners of raffles plus other current news. Items on the board will not stay published permanently, they will change periodically so the board can stay current. Items will move down the board as new items are added near the top.
FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK
Let me take this opportunity to set the record straight regarding the sale of the Club’s old tractor. There have been one or more individuals spreading the lie that former President Bill McCune and former Range Officer Dan Leininger stole the tractor. This never happened.
The sale of the tractor to Dan was the result of a legal Board motion, discussion, and approval. The lie began soon after the sale, which caused Dan to quit and, ultimately, Bill to resign his post as President. Imagine how you would feel being confronted in a store with the lie of stealing the tractor, knowing you were innocent.
This behavior of damaging innocent members’ reputations is completely unacceptable in our Club. I will be investigating the facts in this case to see if any disciplinary action is warranted — including suspension or removal of those involved. If you have any information that would help my investigation, please share it with me.
President, Mohave Sportsman Club

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

NEW STEEL TARGETS INSTALLED AT THE 1,000yd RANGE
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.
