Scout Troops To Be Hosted in April and May

On April 19, 2018, and May 15, 2018, we will be hosting a special youth shooting night for a pair of local Scout Troops.  On the 19th, the UPSTAIRS indoor range will be restricted to the youth shooting event and the Girl Scouts.  The downstairs range will be open for the regular Thursday evening open shooting.

On Tuesday, May 15th we will be hosting a special youth shooting night for a local Boy Scout Troop. Open shooting will be unavailable to the general membership that evening.

Our Youth Shooting program continues to grow and these special sessions are another way we are introducing the youth of our community to shooting in a safe and educated environment. Our goal is that shooters who attend these sessions will return to participate in both our open youth shooting program and even consider our newly established Competitive Team.

If You Have a Pistol Permit, You Must Re-Certify Now

THE RIGHT SIDE BY BUDD SCHROEDER JANUARY 24, 2018

 

IF YOU HAVE A PISTOL PERMIT, YOU MUST RE-CERTIFY  NOW

 

 

You must obey the laws.  This is a simple statement and it is true even when the law is flawed or unjust.  People had to obey the law regarding Prohibition and many did not do that.  However, it was the law during the Roaring Twenties and it caused great confusion, corruption and destruction.

If you made alcohol, transported, sold or possessed it, you committed a federal crime.  It was a constitutional amendment and a serious crime.  The big problem is that a high portion of our population didn’t like the law, didn’t obey it and it made organized crime more profitable.  It was an abject failure and was finally repealed.

It made criminals out of “formerly” honest citizens.  It also provided the funding for corrupting politicians and law enforcement as well as making the bootleggers and criminals rich.  One would think that politicians would have learned […]

Youth Shooting Program Receives 2017 NRA Foundation Grant

We are happy to announce that the Ten X Youth Shooting Program has received an NRA Foundation grant for the second year in a row.  The NRA Foundation awarded our program with Five Ruger American .22LR rifles with magazines, five Champion’s Choice shooting mats and five offhand stands. The total value of the grant is over $2,600! Combined with our 2016 grant, we now have eight .22LR rifles for our program. This will allow us to grow the program beyond air rifle shooting. This is especially important now that the Section VI high school sports organization has decided to only offer air rifle shooting for those high schools with rifle teams. Ten X will be able to serve as one of the only places in the area where young shooters can continue to improve their shooting of rimfire rifles.

Here is an interesting article that was posted in a local newspaper to get an extension:

Ortt urges delay in pistol recertification deadline Submitted Thu, Jan 4th 2018 05:30 pm On Thursday, New York State Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to delay the NY SAFE Act’s pistol recertification deadline. As outlined in the NY SAFE Act, pistol permitholders who fail to recertify their license by the Jan. 31 deadline will have their license revoked. “Pistol permitholders need to be aware that this deadline is approaching quickly,” Ortt said. “Individuals who are caught with a pistol and an outdated license will be subject to prosecution as outlined by the NY SAFE Act.
