New Club Record

Martin broke the club’s Steel challenge record (formerly held by Don K) at last nights event. Martin drew from a holster and recorded hits on five out of five steel targets of varying sizes, heights and distances in 3.81 seconds. Wow. Martin is at the outdoor range practicing every Tuesday night should you need some pointers.

August 2700 Preliminary Results

Thank you to all of the competitors and all of our volunteers who came out for Sunday’s NRA Conventional Pistol “2700” tournament. We especially wish to welcome two new competitors. The weather could not have been better for the match.

WE DO STEEL, TOO!

Summer is well under way and that means that so too is Ten X’s very own version of Steel Challenge Shooting . . . we call it Stogies & Steel!

Though the moniker implies that a good cigar is a requirement for participation, most of you will be happy to learn that it is not! Anybody who may legally possess a handgun in the State of New York can join us for an entertaining and educational opportunity to work on some of the fundamental aspects of tactical pistol shooting.

Just know that there will likely be a fair number of decent puros polluting up all the air in Newstead as a good smoke always makes everything better!

Inspired by the Steel Challenge Shooting Association, our Club’s very informal meets provide a safe, supervised environment and a relaxed atmosphere to practice with the gun of your choice. As long as you bring adequate eye and ear protection, you can use any type […]

Ten X to Host CCW Instructor’s Course

Ten X will host an NRA FFL Instructor’s training course on August 23, 24, and 25, 2019. The class runs from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on all three days. On Friday, August 23, and for the classroom portion of the course on Saturday August 24, the course will be held at the indoor range at 853 Ransom Road, while the firing instruction on Saturday and Sunday will be at the outdoor range on Greenbush Road.

The NRA CCW Instructor Certification Course equips firearms trainers with the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to teach others how to safely and responsibly carry a concealed handgun for personal protection. NRA CCW Course builds on the fundamentals taught in the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Course and puts those skills into a defensive context. There are two prerequisites for the CCW instructor class: (1) you must be an NRA-certified pistol instructor, and (2) you must complete the NRA CCW Basic Course. The CCW Basic Course is being held this same weekend […]

Good News for Youth Shooting in New York State

Some good news came out of Albany recently regarding youth shooting programs in the state. A bill up for consideration in the state Assembly and Senate would have effectively ended youth shooting programs for those under age 16. Thankfully the final bill provided an exemption that will allow youth shooting (including programs like ours at Ten X) to continue in the state. Here is an article about the issue: https://www.thedailynewsonline.com/bdn01/supervised-youth-access-to-firearms-safe-under-amended-state-law-20190622

Final Youth Shooting Session of the Season this Friday May 10th!

We’ll be wrapping up another successful season of our Youth Shooting program this Friday, May 10th @ 6:30pm. As always, new shooters please arrive @ 6pm for safety training and orientation. We’ll be having a pizza party following our shooting and Dan DeKruger will be awarding more of the youth shooting achievement awards.

It truly has been a good season. We really feel like we’ve got things set up and running smoothly as we complete our second full year. We’ve also had special sessions for Boy Scout groups, individual sessions for a group from Rochester, and now we’re learning that the Girl Scouts are ready to start to allow their girls to participate in the shooting sports as individual troops. We’re optimistic that starting in the fall we’ll be able to get the Girls Scouts active in our program.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of our instructors, other members who have helped us out, and the Board of Directors for their continued support of the […]
