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 It was an abject failure and was finally repealed.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 […]

Junior Program Announcement

Ten X Youth Shooting Program

We are planning to soft launch our Youth Shooting program at the end of August, with an official launch in September. The group will shoot on the second and fourth Fridays of each month, starting at 6:30pm and running until 8:00pm, give or take, based on attendance. In order for this very important initiative to be successful we are going to need several instructors, as well as range officers and other volunteers to make the program work. If you have experience as a three-position shooter, or if you are an NRA Certified Rifle Instructor, we most definitely need your help. We also need certified NRA Range Safety Officers whose only responsibility will be to run/monitor the range. If you aren’t a certified instructor or you are not a certified range officer, we still need your help. Members can help to get the range set up, help the young shooters to set up and break down, etc.

 

There will be an initial meeting of […]

March 2016 Newsletter

Looks like March will be coming in like a lion this year. I’d like to use this as a metaphor to encourage theMembership to renew their interest in the shooting sports and the Club. This month, we will be hosting the NRA Conventional Pistol Sectional (March 4, 5 and 6) which is a great opportunity to explore National Match level competitive shooting.

Thoughts on youth programs

Last year, one of my goals as the Club’s president was to begin creating a development program for young shooters. Step one was to re-connect Ten X to the Niagara Rifle League and qualify some of our members as certified instructors. Solid buildings require solid foundations, and Ten X successfully qualified a number of members as new pistol and rifle instructors. A huge “thank you!” must be extended to member Matt G. for coordination and NRA Board member Budd Schroeder for teaching those classes.

Our range renovation projects are the second leg necessary for a solid youth development program. We recently signed a $5,000 contract with a local architectural and engineering firm to come up with a plan to achieve new ventilation, heating, and containment options. Stay tuned for updates.

Author and highpower coach Glen Zediker wrote a lengthy piece for the NRA’s Shooting Sports magazine and his blog. It is worth reading. Members who have their own ideas and inspirations should comment or pass on those ideas to the […]
