Youth Shooting Program Update – March 2nd, 2021

While we’re all pleased to see the decline in overall cases, hospitalizations, and of course deaths related to Covid, we are still unable to restart the program with the current social distancing restrictions that are in place. And while we are aware that there is a strong possibility that those distancing restrictions may be reduced or even eliminated in the coming weeks, we also are at a point in the year where restarting the program for this season would really be impractical. Our program always ends on the 2nd Friday of May – by the time we could get started we would likely only get a couple or three sessions in – and that doesn’t factor in the Easter break, a time when our attendance is historically light. With all of that in mind, our very strong expectation is that we will resume the regular Friday evening program in September – specifically, September 24th. We always start the fourth Friday in September and end on the second Friday in […]

The next general membership meeting isMarch 1, 2021 at 7:30 PM at 853 Ransom Road

● One year ago, we had the last normal membership meeting. The world rapidly changed after March 4 and we wound up cancelling meeting after meeting because no one understood COVID. But, Ten X survived. And our membership survived. We are not aware that any of our members passing away, and more importantly, no member or guest became infected from using our Club, even with the shoulder-to-shoulder pistol leagues resuming this past October. As your Club President, I want to thank each of our members who stuck with us and who used the range with attention and care for your fellow shooters. […]

Facebook Muzzles NYSRPA

Late today, we received word that Facebook shut down the official NYSRPA Facebook account and the personal accounts of NYSRPA President Tom King and NYSRPA Bullet publisher, Carl Gottstein. Unfortunately, this appears par for the course lately. And, these events potentially have implications for Ten X and all other gun clubs or Second Amendment organizations who maintain a social media presence. We hope that you would be sufficiently outraged to write your state and federal elected representatives. There is so much at stake. Ten X needs you to stay connected and grow our membership.

Attached below is the email bulletin from NYSRPA President King. Subscribing to the NYSRPA and Ten X websites might be a good idea to help keep you informed of important events that affect your gun rights.

Fellow Gun Owners, The NYSRPA is happy to announce a new email alert list that will bring you the latest information regarding your Second Amendment rights as well as any other pertinent […]

DEC Proposes Special Christmastime Deer Season

The New York DEC recently issued a proposed change to its agency rules that would establish a special bow and muzzleloader deer season in the Southern Zone in December. If approved, the season would run during the Christmas and New Year holiday week. The proposed regulations also run the regular deer season for 23 days beginning on the 3rd Saturday in November.

This rulemaking will provide additional opportunity for New York deer hunters and their families by creating a second portion of the late bow and muzzleloading deer seasons in the Southern Zone, adding the holiday week of December 26 through January 1.

DEC, in support of its rule change, noted that during the Christmas to New Year holiday week families gather, many people are off from work, and students are on school break. This provides time for families to hunt together, share memories and make new ones, and gather venison for the next year. This new opportunity is consistent with the department’s efforts to recruit, retain, and reactivate […]

SCOPE-NY’s State Senate Warning

The following is a message from the Shooters Committee on Political Education. We are reprinting it here because the article correctly, clearly and factually lays out the recent history concerning the control of the New York State Senate and how redistricting could affect our members and their rights. Both SCOPE and the 1791 Society PAC, as well as, SAF, GOA, CCRKBA, NYSRPA and NRA are all welcome in their defense our our Member’s rights to enjoy the shooting sports. Ten X does not endorse any particular gun-rights organization or any particular political candidate.

New York State Senate

Prior to 2018, Republicans usually had control of the New York State Senate. This somewhat offset the heavily New York City based gun grabbers in the Assembly and the Governor’s office. Republicans were the only defense against the gun grabbing left and when they lost the Senate majority, in a landslide in 2018, the gun grabbers came out in force.

In October, when SCOPE reviewed […]
