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 […]

Youth Program Summer 2020 Update

Hi everyone – now that the Governor has announced his plans for reopening schools we have a better idea of what the expectations are in terms of the required set-up of a “learning” environment – be it in school or in a recreational setting.

After a review of those requirements, and our own internal review of our facilities and abilities, we regret to announce that we will not be able to resume our program in September.

It probably won’t come as a surprise to any of you that we simply cannot come up with a way where we can have the standard six feet of separation at our indoor ranges and have any more than two or three shooters on the line at any given […]

NEW “OPEN SHOOT” APPROVED!

ATTENTION fellow Members of Ten X Shooting Club!

Your Board of Directors recently voted, unanimously, to implement a simple yet significant change in how our Outdoor Range Facility at Greenbush Road will now be utilized for the Good of our Club and to promote the Shooting Sports locally.

Effective 7/18/2020 and for the foreseeable future, a segment of time has been designated as an “Open Shoot” which will allow for, exclusively, Tactical Firearms Training and practice of Personal Defense Techniques.

Every Saturday morning from 8AM until 12NOON the Pistol Range at our Greenbush Road Facility will be set aside for all Members and their accompanied guests who wish to practice their pistol skills outside of Bullseye Shooting.

The Rifle Range will be wholly unaffected by this change.

Other than Club-Sponsored Shoots, the Club’s Ranges remain now, as always, “first come, first served” facilities. By specifically allocating this portion of the week to those Members who wish to experiment with alternative forms of shooting, we are providing ample opportunity […]

Youth Shooting Program Update

If you’ve been following the “phases” of reopening in New York state you have probably heard that “youth sports” are falling into phase four. As our program runs from September through May we have a bit of time to determine how we can hopefully start back up in the fall. With guidance from both the government and health officials and with the approval of the Board of Directors, we will make a determination as to how the program could restart. We are also awaiting information as to how the public schools will be operating in September and we’ll consider their plans for operation in our own plans for the program. Obviously, the health and safety of our participants, their families and our instructors is first and foremost in importance. The instructors have all missed working with the kids and are certainly hopeful that we can start again in September. Please continue to check the website for updates.

Indoor Range Summer Projects – 2020

Hello everyone,

There are a number of projects that need to be done to keep the indoor range in good shape. Each member has a work obligation to the club of 6 hours of volunteer time per year.

Members can select one or more tasks to do on their own time, away from other members. By filling out the volunteer work slip, you will get credit for your time.

Any member looking to under take any one or more of the following tasks should contact me first to make sure it isn’t already completed. My email is and phone number are below.
