End of First Quarter

Hello and Happy Easter.

It is my hope that this season of Easter brings a sense of reflection and peace.

Well, the first quarter is behind us in a couple of days and I wanted to reach out to you all and let you know that the club is doing very well.

We’ve seen an increased attendance at our General Membership Meetings as well as our Youth Shoot nights.

We’ve also seen an increase in membership applications being requested. That’s a great thing.

Thank you for your continued support of Ten X Shooting Club and hats off to the Youth Shoot team for a successful season.

As you all know, we are expecting the Solar Eclipse to pass directly over Western New York on Monday April 8th. Please make sure you have the proper glasses if you intend to view this “once in a lifetime” event. Glasses can be obtained at any local library from what I’m being told.

Our next General Membership Meeting is Monday April 1st at […]

Ten X Youth Shooting Program

The Ten X Youth Shooting Program is set to begin its 8th season on Friday September 15th. A huge Thank You to Matt Giansante for his leadership and perseverance getting this successful program up and running. Also Thank You to the many volunteers that have participated along the way.

The Instructional Marksmanship Program is for youths ages 12 to 20 and utilizes .22LR rimfire rifles or the recent addition of air pistols. Both programs are intended to teach the proper and safe handling and shooting of guns. Shooting takes place on the First and Third Friday from mid-September to mid-May at the 853 Ransom Road Lancaster, NY Indoor Range. First time shooters should arrive at 6:00 PM for brief safety instructions. Shooting begins at 6:30 PM and ends approximately 9:00 PM. Cost per shooter is $5.00. Membership in the Ten X Shooting Club is encouraged but not required.

Ten X Youth Shooting Program – Buffalo News article

The Ten X Youth Shooting Program received a great write-up in yesterday’s Buffalo News, courtesy of Bill Hilts, Jr., their outdoor writer who has been very supportive of our program.

Supreme Court Holds the Sullivan Law Unconstitutional; New York Doubles Down

Last week the United States Supreme Court issued the long-anticipated decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs. Bruen. The decision is already being considered a landmark ruling. There are many articles online that explain the decision and, more importantly, how the lawsuit came to be. We will post links to some of the best writings below. If we can distill the ruling down to its essential holding, the Court held that the right to self defense applies outside the home as well as inside the home, and, further, the discretionary “may issue” permitting scheme set forth in New York Penal Law Section 400 was arbitrary.

Instead of taking the drubbing with grace, which California (!) did, New York has doubled down with the Democrat Party controlled State Assembly and State Senate passing an even more draconian scheme. The new law makes permits renewable every three years, designates nearly every public space a “sensitive area” where concealed carrying is prohibited, and requires permit […]
