Ten X will be hosting an official NRA Instructor class next month. Students completing the class will become official NRA Pistol Instructors and will be authorized to host their own basic handgun safety class for people looking to obtain their pistol permits. The course will be taught by NRA Board member Budd Schroeder.
The classes will be held on September 26 and October 3, 2015, from 9:00 am to approximately 5:00 pm at our indoor range at 853 Ransom Road. Students must attend both sessions and pass an exam to get their certification. The course costs $150.00 per pupil. Please bring a check to the first class. Class size is limited to 10 or 12 students and we have about 5 or 6 pre- registrations as of today.
People wishing to sign up must email the president at p.vasilion at gmail.com to pre- register.
Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and competitors who came out on June 7 to participate in out first tournament of the season!

What is High Power rifle? It refers to centerfire rifle competition modeled after a course of fire once given to U.S. soldiers. It is a 50-shot match course fired from the standing and sitting positions at 200 yards and the prone position at 300 and 600 yards.
Any standard issue American service rifle, such as an M1 Garand, Springfield M1A (civilian M-14), or AR-15 are acceptable. Modified bolt action target rifles with micrometer peep sights are also used
This year’s schedule of local NRA Highpower rifle tournaments has been released.
Well we had an awesome turnout today for the spring cleanup at the Ten X Outdoor Range. A lot got accomplished in a short time. The stat house was cleaned out, the kitchen is all ready. The bathrooms are all nice and clean. All the uprights for the targets are in place and many old branches were taken down and the leaves were raked, and the sound system is up and working. So all in all the place looks great.
Many thanks go out to the following members that attended: Ray Buchner, Bob Schweers, Mark Bergum, Eric Redmill, Tom Jankowski, Brian Mackey, Carl Jay, Ron Marriott, Chris Mornelli, Gail Fechter, Joe Moronski, Mitch Vogel, Bruce Matthies (Life Member), Jim Gerstung, and Gene Fechter. I would also like to thank the three Clarence Shooting Club members that came out to help too: Ward Paulter (Clarence’s Secretary), Tom Thoman, and John Dworak (Clarence’s President).
I sure hope that I got everyone, but if I didn’t, a big THANKS to all […]

Checks and NRA points will be mailed out at the end of before May 1. The medals for the open awards will be presented at the Combined SPL / NFPL awards banquet on May 2 at Kotecki’s Grove, West Seneca.
Two things from our stat office:
1. As always, we invite your comments and feedback about out match because we are interested in making shooting tournaments an enjoyable experience. We want to do better.
2. We want to encourage and assist to the greatest extent possible the development of new competitors. Lets face facts: we as a community are growing old and grey. The cost of equipment, guns, ammo doubled almost overnight in reaction to the SAFE Act. More and more people are dropping out because of cost, and fear that law enforcement will be watching us due to the SAFE Act. […]
