Volunteers Needed – September 28th

On Saturday September 28th our club has the opportunity to be a part of the Elma Conservation Club’s annual National Hunting & Fishing Day event. We have the opportunity to man their 50 foot outdoor rifle shooting range and give kids who are attending the chance to take a few shots at a target. The hope is that this will generate some interest in our program and help to grow our attendance. It will also be a good opportunity for us to promote the club as a whole.

Mark Martzolf, who is also a member @ Elma, is coordinating this. He is in need of some additional volunteers to help out that day. It runs from 9am to 4pm. If we could get people to take two hour shifts, it would be a huge help. If you can help please reach out to him. His e-mail is mtmartzolf@hotmail.com

Youth Shooting 2019 / 2020 Season

As the calendar turns from August to September our youth shooting program will be getting under way. Our instructors met twice over the summer, discussing ideas on how to fine-tune our program and making sure all our equipment is ready for the new season.

Our first indoor session will be Friday, September 27th (all sessions are on the website calendar.) While we have a great group of instructors we do need additional help. If you can commit to be a part of the team on a regular basis, great. If you can come a few times, that would be helpful too. It’s a great way to get in your required work hours, but even more it’s truly a rewarding experience, seeing kids learn to shoot safely and accurately while coming to appreciate the sport as much as we all do.

This year we’ll be adding some “reaction” targets where the kids can shoot at targets other than paper. We also plan to increase use of the BB guns, […]

● BACK TO SCHOOL, BACK TO THE RANGE. Thank you to all our volunteers who put in time over the summer. We had some challenges this summer with the tractor at the outdoor range and some challenges with staffing matches, but more people are using the range than last year, which we like to […]

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
