Sometimes, it takes time

The most frequent complaints heard at the club is “I’ll never be that good”.  This past monday, a fellow bullseye pistol competitor (and Ohio resident) John Bickar sent along a lesson that sometimes, good things take time… and persistence… and practice:

More State Gun Control on the Horizon

The following is passed to us from the Shooters Committee on Political Education (“SCOPE”) and we are forwarding it to  our members without editing.  If you are so inclined, you can and should do your part to write your legislators and let them know how you feel about these proposals.  You should all be prepared for whats coming over the horizon.  Members interest in joining SCOPE can click this link for more information.

 

What’s On the Horizon for 2019

Albany Legislation: This is a general overview of what we expect in terms of gun legislation coming out of Albany when the legislature convenes in January. Of course, the legislative season is fluid and this list isn’t necessarily complete and can change as circumstances evolve. Given the 2 to 1 majority Democrats have in both houses, turning back anti-gun legislation this year will be formidable, if not impossible to say the least.

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 […]

September marks the start of our regular monthly Membership meetings.  Due to the Labor Day holiday the next General Meeting is September 10, 2018 at 7:30 PM

● Labor Day means that we are headed back to the indoor range, the leagues, and our junior program. Thank you to all our volunteers who put in time over the summer. 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.
