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 […]

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.

April 2017 Newsletter

Happy Post-St.-Patrick’s-Day Weekend!  The April Newsletter is attached below for downloading.

Spring is rapidly approaching now, which means we will start shooting outdoors later in April.  A new gate combination will be included in the paper newsletter mailed to members in good standing.  If you do not receive your April newsletter in the mail before the General Meeting on April 3, you either did not pay your dues, pay your work assessment, or your address information needs updating.

Many thanks to member Matt G. who worked very hard to ensure that Ten X won an NRA Development Grant in the amount of $3,000 to fund a junior program.  Matt also was able to secure a monetary donation from Cabella’s to assist the program.  This is why it is important to be a member of the NRA and we would be happy to help renew your membership in NRA or help you join.  Ten X is proud to be an official NRA recruiter club.

As we look to move outdoors, we […]

March 2017 Newsletter

This month’s newsletter starts with our deep appreciation and thanks to all of the members who contributed time in February to get the range ready for the Indoor Pistol Championship.  Special thanks to Tom Florkowski, Tom Wisiorek, Ed Richter, Charles Metler, Tom Petschke, and George Kirkpatrick for helping with the February 18 clean-up.  Thanks also to Ed Richter for his dry-wall repair expertise – the repairs in the upstairs ready room really look good.

The Suburban Pistol League wrapped up last month.  We have the most shooters of any SPL affiliated club, and it shows because of the number of overall matches won.  Thanks to each and every member who came out and fired at least one match!

The NFPL season will wrap up this month.  There are only three weeks left, with the next two matches at home.  There is still time to come out and see what it is all about.

We will have a number of updates at this month’s meeting.  Come out to find out what’s […]

NRA National Indoor Pistol Championships

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 24, 25 & 26, Ten X held the NRA National Indoor Pistol Championship.  We would like to thank all the volunteers that made this event a real success.  Everyone that came out to volunteer for all three days really made this event run very smoothly.  We even had a chance to clean out the closet under the stairs in the downstairs range!

Thanks to everyone for all your hard work (too many to name in this limited space).  However, a big public thank you to our Match Secretary Jim Gerstung for all the paperwork that you manage.

The Preliminary Results of the match are below.  You can download the PDF by clicking here.
