New Handgun Range Rules: With the recent expansion of the Handgun Range several members have questioned what firearms are allowed to be used on this range, especially with the growing popularity of Pistol Caliber Carbines and AR Pistols with arm braces which can be mounted and fired from the shoulder. After considerable deliberation and discussion the Officers and Trustees, with special concern for the safety of all shooters using the Handgun Range, have enacted the following rule, effective immediately: Firearms allowed on the Handgun Range are limited to handguns only, in handgun calibers only. No shoulder fired firearms are allowed, including rimfire rifles, pistol caliber carbines, nor AR Style pistols in rifle calibers such as .223/5.56×45, .300BLK, etc.   AR Style pistols in handgun calibers only are allowed and attached arm braces may only be used as designed for bracing, but they cannot be used as a buttstock and fired from the shoulder mounted position. Single Shot style handguns such as the T/C Contender and Encore may only be used on the Handgun Range if chambered in pistol calibers, not rifle calibers. The delineation of handgun versus rifle calibers can be found on the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) website, www.saami.org. All those firearms noted above not allowed on the Handgun Range can be used on any of the Rifle Ranges, but not the Shotgun Patterning Range. Enhancements to the Rifle Ranges, including the possible addition of reactive targets, are under consideration now by the Officers and Trustees.

New Member Applications: Our By-Laws require that all new prospective members be approved for admission by the Voting Members of the Club at a regular Monthly Meeting. We are accepting 2021 New Member applications and upon receipt they will be voted upon at the next Monthly Meeting, if a quorum of Voting Members is in attendance at that meeting.

Guest Pass Reminder: Guest privileges are only available to members at time of annual membership renewal. After paying the Guest Pass fee along with your membership renewal, your membership card will be stamped allowing you to bring guests according to the restrictions noted in the Guest Pass Policy. Guests MUST complete and sign the Liability Waiver and display the bottom section with their host member’s membership card on the corresponding range board clips when shooting. Liability Waiver forms and more details about the Guest Pass Policy can be found on this website in the Membership section.

Member reminder: ALL Members MUST display their membership card on the corresponding range board clips whenever shooting, not on a lanyard around your neck or pinned on a hat.
