Fall Cleanup at Outdoor Range

A really “Big” thank you to all that came out to help with getting the outdoor range fixed up and closed up for the winter. We accomplished so much on Saturday. All the old wood at the 25 yard target stands were removed and and new wood was installed. That in itself was a big job! The stat house was cleaned up and straightened up too. The target stands at 50 yards were dug out so now the stands should be a bit easier to put in. Also a few trees were cut down.

Again, thanks to: Don Kwiatkowski, Bill Frears, Charles Metler, Robert Schweers, James Perry, Richard D’Arcy, Tom Wisiorek, Tom Florkowski, Gene Fechter, Kevin Perry, Mark Bergum, Joe Moronski, Ed Richter, Timothy Colf, Andy Maciejewski, Phil Lanoye,  Al Hopkins, Jim Gerstung, Art Young, and of course our fearless leader Mitch Vogel.

Many hands made all the work go very smoothly fast. Well done everyone!!

Outdoor Range

Well this past Saturday we opened the outdoor range. Thank you to all that came out and pitched in to get the place ready for the  season. We were able to clean up the kitchen, stat house and cut down some overgrown trees. With the pistol range under water between 25 yards and 50 yards in some spots, and it being just a bit to cool to do any painting, we were limited to placing the target stands in for now. Painting can be done when the weather warms up a bit. New targets were made for both 25 and 50 yards, and the water was turned on and ready to go. So all and all it was a pretty good day.

FYI – Depending on how much rain we get in the next few days there still may be some standing water around near the 50 yard targets, so just be prepared for some soggy spots. As far as the rifle range goes, well it looks like it will […]

May 2017 Newsletter

The next General Membership meeting will be Monday, May 1, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the Indoor Range.  The old saying is that April showers bring May flowers.  Hopefully, we will soon be done with showers altogether for a while.  Because the outdoor range looks more like Lake Ontario than a shooting range:

With May upon us, we are moving towards the outdoor shooting season and the WNYOPL League.  We had a clean up party on April 22 to help get the outdoor range into shape.  Thank you to Mitch V. for heading up this project.

Speaking of projects, we have accomplished much in a few short weeks.  More on that in this month’s newsletter, but a public thank you needs to be made to the following members:  Al H., Roy S., Dale S., Matt G., Mitch V., Jim M., Jim G., and Bill F., among many others.

Introduction to the NSSF Rimfire Challenge

Designed to introduce new shooters to the shooting sports, Ruger Firearms and the National Shooting Sports Foundation recently created a fun program open to shooters at all experience levels.  Rimfire Challenge courses of fire are designed to be challenging enough to separate the top shooters but easy enough for the first time shooter.  It is family friendly, and not uncommon to find young shooters along side older shooters.  Its something Ten X can try out.  Below are two videos designed as an introduction.
