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.

Match Scores via Practisore.com – click on scores, then go to search scores box, then enter MSC then look for Tombstone.

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.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS – WE NEED YOU!
The club could not operate without our volunteers and we truly appreciate the time our volunteers contribute. Here are just a few of the type of volunteering we need,

> Working our table at the gun shows
> Helping with managing our membership list (Our membership is now 2,000+)
> We need Range “Observers” (see notes below)
> Minor general repair/maintenance work around the club

If you are interested in volunteering a few hours of you time please contact us. If you can help us in being a volunteer please contact any one of us,

George @ 928-753-8038
Doc @ 928-753-7136
Or any of the range safety officers at the club office # 928-753-8038

As a volunteer you will also be generating critical revenue for MSC which helps keep our membership fees some of the lowest in the state.

Range OBSERVERs”.
You’ll have fun, meet a few people who love the sport as much as you do and at the same time be performing a vital role in creating a safe environment for members and guests.
