November 2018 Newsletter

We are returning to our regular meeting format this month and so the November General Membership Meeting will be Monday, November 5, 2018, at 7:30.

As usual, the printable version of this newsletter can be downloaded by clicking this link.

●  Thank you to Barb Mann, Beth Moses and Dianna Voit of the Erie County Medical Center Trauma Department’s Stop The Bleed program who presented at the October 1 meeting.  Members who attended received credit for completing the Bleeding Control Basic Course v. 1.0 (“BCon”) program and a certificate.  Stop The Bleed program is intended to give everyone knowledge on how to be part of the first response to mass casualty incidents like the Las Vegas shooting.  The lessons are also good for every-day situations that you might encounter, like car accidents or cuts in the home or at work.  Overall, the class appeared to be well received and a change from the ordinary meeting format.  If members have topics or ideas for other presentations, please let us know.

Youth Shooting Update – finishing up 2018 and looking forward to 2019

Our youth program started up again the first Friday in September. This year we are shooting all Fridays, with the first and third Fridays being our Instructional Program and the second and fourth Fridays being our Recreational Program (no shooting on the “fifth” Fridays). Both programs are off to a solid start. Fall activities and sports may have kept attendance down a bit more than we had expected and for next year we’re considering delaying the start of the program to October (still to be determined).

For November and December our schedule will vary slightly. In November, the Recreational Program will not shoot on the fourth Friday (due to the Thanksgiving holiday) and in December the Instructional Program will not shoot on Friday December 21st and the Recreational Program will not shoot on Friday December 28th. Starting in January we’ll be back on our regular schedule. Our upcoming shooting days are as follows:

Instructional Program:

November 2nd and 16th December 7th

Recreational Program

November 9th December 14th

There is no […]

Stop The Bleed

On Monday October 1, 2018 Ten X Shooting Club held the Stop The Bleed program at the indoor range. We would like to thank Barb Mann, Beth Moses, and Dianna Volt for taking time out of their busy schedules to teach this class. Around 20+ participants attended this class and received a certificate after the hands on training was completed. This class was held instead of the regular monthly meeting.

Updated Travel Info for Out of State Competitors

We have updated information concerning transporting firearms by out-of-state residents wishing to travel to New York for our registered NRA Tournaments.  While New York State earns its reputation for being anti-gun, and possession of handguns without a New York State pistol permit is generally unlawful, New York makes an exception for out-of-state residents traveling to New York to attend an NRA or CMP approved  competitive pistol match or league.

Information for U.S. Residents:

Residents of neighboring states are always welcome to attend our events.  If you want to attend one of our matches, we recommend that you contact the match director to preregister for the match and request a match registration card or a confirmation email.  The match director’s contact information is always listed in our match programs.  Do bring the match program and your registration confirmation with you.  Do bring your State’s license (CCW, FOID, etc.) with you, if your state issues one.  Transport your firearms in a locked, opaque container.  Transport ammunition in a separate locked opaque container.  […]

2018 Indoor Sectional National Results Published

Ten X was proud to host the 2018 Indoor Sectional Championship match this past March.  The preliminary results of our match were posted here after the match.  We hosted a total of 24 competitors from as far west as Jamestown and as far east as Rochester.

This past week, the NRA Competitions Division posted their preliminary national results.  A copy of the preliminary precision pistol results can be downloaded by clicking here.  We found a couple of interesting data points: there were a total of 1,059 competitors nation-wide.  Our own Club President placed 34th overall, 13th among Master classified shooters.  Boston Valley Conservation Club’s Rick Powers placed 22nd among Master classified shooters, 55th overall.  Twin City’s Chris Thiel placed 24th among Expert classified shooters.  In all, a very strong showing of competitors from New York and New Jersey:  remarkable for states known to have the most restrictive handgun laws.

Only one local team was fielded, which is unfortunate because in years past we were able to host four […]

Youth Shooting Starts September 7th

I’ll skip the stuff about Summer soon ending and Fall being right around the corner. That said, September is just a week away and we’ll be resuming our youth shooting program on Friday, September 7th. Here are the updates and improvements we’re making/adding for this season:

We will shoot every Friday from September through mid-May (with a few Friday’s off for holidays and “fifth” Fridays) Start time is 6:30pm (for new shooters in our Open/Recreational shooting, please arrive @ 6pm for a safety orientation)

 

The second and fourth Fridays (when we shot last year) will be for ALL shooters ages eight and up, and will be our “Open/Recreational” shooting days. This year we’ll be adding in BB guns, along with Pellet Guns. This is for our youngest shooters AND those who are not looking for more detailed instruction. Ten X member Dan DeKruger will be coordinating our Open/Recreational Program this year.

 

This year we’re adding what we’re calling “Instructional” shooting on the first and third Fridays. This will […]
