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 […]

The remaining “to do” items include finishing the steel gable to the kitchen, putting down a couple of layers of waterproofing to the outdoor turning target mounting boards, and the usual end-of-season maintenance. We will be setting up an outdoor range work date at the September meeting.

If You Have a Pistol Permit, You Must Re-Certify Now

THE RIGHT SIDE BY BUDD SCHROEDER JANUARY 24, 2018

 

IF YOU HAVE A PISTOL PERMIT, YOU MUST RE-CERTIFY  NOW

 

 

You must obey the laws.  This is a simple statement and it is true even when the law is flawed or unjust.  People had to obey the law regarding Prohibition and many did not do that.  However, it was the law during the Roaring Twenties and it caused great confusion, corruption and destruction.

If you made alcohol, transported, sold or possessed it, you committed a federal crime.  It was a constitutional amendment and a serious crime.  The big problem is that a high portion of our population didn’t like the law, didn’t obey it and it made organized crime more profitable.  It was an abject failure and was finally repealed.

It made criminals out of “formerly” honest citizens.  It also provided the funding for corrupting politicians and law enforcement as well as making the bootleggers and criminals rich.  One would think that politicians would have learned […]
