The NY Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013 changed pistol permits into a renewable license. Renewal and re-certification of a permit holder’s eligibility is now mandatory. If a pistol permit holder were to fail to re-new and re-certify his or her eligibility to possess a pistol license, that permit holder could (probably would) be charged with at least one Class A Misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year of incarceration.
On Tuesday November 18, 2014, the State Police conducted a presentation on the recertification process required under the New York State Safe Act.
A pilot of the recertification process will begin in January of 2015. Three counties will pilot the State Police renewal scheme: Albany, Schenectady and Fulton.
Under the SAFE Act and the State Police renewal process, you will need to verify the following information on your pistol permit to the New York State Police every 5 years: name, DOB, gender, race, residential address, social security number, the firearms possessed, and if you want, your e-mail […]

We received approval from the NRA to host an “1800” pistol match in January and it has been christened the Winter Icebreaker 1800. The Program is attached below.
The match will be held at the indoor range, 853 Ransom Road, Lancaster, NY, on Saturday January 10, 2015, beginning at 9:00 am. Registration begins at 8:00 and mail-in or register-by-email is strongly recommended because we have received surprisingly strong interest.

Please take a few moments to notify any fellow Members you know who may not have an email on file with the Club.
At the November meeting, a heated discussion arose over the future of the Club and what we have to offer our members. The question of where to we (as a sport shooting community) go from here is a question that even the NRA is asking. In the edition of Shooting Sports USA released today, the future of Bullseye was the chief article. Those reading the shooting blogs or who are following national competitors such as Brian Zins will recall a huge argument after Camp Perry over the NRA’s apparently foregone conclusion to replace paper targets with electronic ones. It makes for interesting discussion. Especially where the future of the Club is concerned. The photo of the November Shooting Sports USA edition, below, links you to the article.
That’s So Outdated!!
We recently encountered a couple of members who questioned why the Club is putting renewed emphasis on competition and shooting at little black, round targets. After all, they say, shooters around here are not going to shoot anything farther away than a deer at perhaps 60 to 80 yards. True enough. Maybe.

Thank you to all of our guests and fellow shooters who attended this year’s Robert O. Brundage Memorial Tournament. We had a mini Camp Perry with warm windy weather on Saturday that gave way to wet humid rainy weather on Sunday morning, which cleared up to sunny cool and windy weather by the end of Sundays matches. The preliminary results are posted below. A full .PDF file of the results is linked below the thumbnail picture, below.
Special thanks to Keith Gaylord who kept the statistical office running smoothly, Jim Gerstung who was a wonderful match director, and Dave Schabel and Jim Gerstung for calling the match. We had a host of helpers, too many to name all. A thank you goes out to all of our volunteers also.
Also, we were able to run a Distinguished Revolver match and a CMP Leg Match. Congratulations to Paul Korn who earned a Distinguished Revolver Leg with 261-3x and Lou Pasquino who earned a CMP Leg with a 253-4x score in the […]
