Beginners Practical Pistol Class:
February class is full. Look for more classes in coming months.
We have scheduled another beginners practical pistol class for Saturday February 27, 2016 at 9 AM. The class will last until approximately 12:30 to 1 PM. We have had excellent feedback for our previous classes with the participants learning and enjoying their introduction to pistol craft. We have a limit of 8 people for this class so sign up early. To enroll just drop us an e-mail at email@example.com and let us know you would like to attend. You will need to bring your pistol, ear and eye protection, and ammunition for your gun. We recommend at least 50 rounds but 100 is better. Instructors always bring a variety of guns so you can also put various guns in your hand and see what fits you and you shoot well.
Winchester/NRA Qualifier Shoots:
Again this winter we will be offering the Winchester/NRA Qualification shoots. This year we will be shooting Defensive Pistol I and we may start Defensive Pistol II if time permits. Def. Pistol I will have a round count of a minimum of 200 rounds for the entire program. This is defensive pistol so centerfire guns will be the preferred firearm. You will need your gun and at least 2 magazines or a revolver and 2 speedloaders. We will be shooting every other Monday, dates of the shoots are 2/15/, 2/29, 3/14, and 3/28. Shoots will start at 6 PM each day. Targets will be D-1 (also known as Bianchi) targets at 21 feet. Cost to shoot will be $5 for the season. If you plan to shoot these qualifiers please drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We would like to have some idea of how many people are interested. You will sign up and pay the first night of shooting. If you wish to get the Distinguished Expert qualification you will need to be an NRA member. All other qualifications do not require membership. Hope to see lots of our members there.
Sign In Log Book
There is a sign in log book on the desk when you enter the club. Please be sure to sign the book whenever you are at the club, have any guests sign in too. The log is not just for when using the range, you should sign it when you are there for any reason whatsoever.
Please take the time to check the “Range Procedures” page. This has been put up so members will know the proper procedures to safely use both the indoor and the outdoor range. It also explains what targets are appropriate.
Found: We have found a knife at the club that someone left behind. If you lost a knife contact us with a description through the “Contact Us” link on this site and we will make arrangements to get it back to you.
Pistol Permit Safety Class:
We are pleased to announce that we will now have the class that is needed to obtain your Oneida County pistol permit paperwork. Ron Sutphin will be teaching the classes at the club. Classes run from 9 to 5 on scheduled Sundays or 5 to 9 for two nights during the week. If you, a friend, or a family member wish to take one of the classes you will need to preregister by calling Ron at 225-1813. Ron is offering these classes each month for our members, family, and friends. Check the Calendar page for dates. Cost of the class is $35 per person.
Please be aware that the club ranges will be closed during the times these classes are held.
Under no circumstances should you ever loan your door key card to a nonmember of the club. We have had an incident where a nonmember used a card to enter the club and use the indoor range with a second person. If you are caught loaning your card to a nonmember, you will lose your membership in the club.
