Youth Shooting Program Receives 2017 NRA Foundation Grant

We are happy to announce that the Ten X Youth Shooting Program has received an NRA Foundation grant for the second year in a row.  The NRA Foundation awarded our program with Five Ruger American .22LR rifles with magazines, five Champion’s Choice shooting mats and five offhand stands. The total value of the grant is over $2,600! Combined with our 2016 grant, we now have eight .22LR rifles for our program. This will allow us to grow the program beyond air rifle shooting. This is especially important now that the Section VI high school sports organization has decided to only offer air rifle shooting for those high schools with rifle teams. Ten X will be able to serve as one of the only places in the area where young shooters can continue to improve their shooting of rimfire rifles.

Here is an interesting article that was posted in a local newspaper to get an extension:

Ortt urges delay in pistol recertification deadline Submitted Thu, Jan 4th 2018 05:30 pm On Thursday, New York State Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to delay the NY SAFE Act’s pistol recertification deadline. As outlined in the NY SAFE Act, pistol permitholders who fail to recertify their license by the Jan. 31 deadline will have their license revoked. “Pistol permitholders need to be aware that this deadline is approaching quickly,” Ortt said. “Individuals who are caught with a pistol and an outdated license will be subject to prosecution as outlined by the NY SAFE Act. While […]

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.

Please take a moment to read this month’s newsletter.  You can download it by clicking this link.
