Ten X Youth Shooting Program

The Ten X Youth Shooting Program is set to begin its 8th season on Friday September 15th. A huge Thank You to Matt Giansante for his leadership and perseverance getting this successful program up and running. Also Thank You to the many volunteers that have participated along the way. The Recreational Marksmanship Program is for youths ages 9 through 20 and utilizes air rifles (pellet). The Instructional Marksmanship Program is for youths ages 12 to 20 and utilizes .22LR rimfire rifles or the recent addition of air pistols. Both programs are intended to teach the proper and safe handling and shooting of guns. Shooting takes place on the First and Third Friday from mid-September to mid-May at the 853 Ransom Road Lancaster, NY Indoor Range. First time shooters should arrive at 6:00 PM for brief safety instructions. Shooting begins at 6:30 PM and ends approximately 9:00 PM. Cost per shooter is $5.00. Membership in the Ten X Shooting Club is encouraged but not required.

Last week the United States Supreme Court issued the long-anticipated decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs. Bruen. The decision is already being considered a landmark ruling. There are many articles online that explain the decision and, more importantly, how the lawsuit came to be. We will post links to some of the best writings below. If we can distill the ruling down to its essential holding, the Court held that the right to self defense applies outside the home as well as inside the home, and, further, the discretionary “may issue” permitting scheme set forth in New York Penal Law Section 400 was arbitrary.

Instead of taking the drubbing with grace, which California (!) did, New York has doubled down with the Democrat Party controlled State Assembly and State Senate passing an even more draconian scheme.

As long as range standards and rule standards are uniformly enforced, it does not matter whether the record score was fired at Camp Perry or the local range because the conditions are supposed to be the same regardless of the location.
