PISTOL RANGE STEEL TARGET MIS-USEAGE=DANGEROUS!!!: Someone had turned the targets on the pistol range to face the bench rest area. These targets are made of mild steel not AR plate and REQUIRE A MINIMUM SETTING OF 15 YARDS (the second row of pipe) from the bench. This is a personal frag safety issue and does damage to the targets. These bullets at times bounce off onto our repair shop. There are welding tanks, welders and propane tanks that may blow up. If you are caught doing this, you may be ejected from the club. THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE (1) WARNING ISSUED, you will lose your club membership if you are caught a second time.
STEEL SWINGERS: The steel swingers at the 100-, 200-, and 300-yard lines are ONLY TO HANG ONE WAY AND ONE WAY ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT TURN THESE SWINGER S AROUND. All this does is damage the round stock that holds them up. SO PLEASE DON’T TURN THEM AROUND or we will remove them. I am the one that must repair them.
NEW SIGN: YOU MUST WEAR HEARING AND EYE PROTECTION AT ALL TIMES inside the fence line. Thank you.
CLUB MEETINGS: Are still on the second Wednesday at 6pm, at the DOMINON FIREARMS STORE. From May to September the meetings will be at the range.
ROCKS: We are still finding large rocks that are taken onto the range to hold targets down. If you have the time to take them out there, PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO REMOVE THEM!! If we do not see them when we mow, it tears up the blades on the mower, which cost around 150 bucks to replace them. This applies to anything that you take down range. Thanks.
SHOOTING TIME: Remember that our shooting hours have changed. We can only shoot from 8am to 5:30 pm in the evening. Chuck has had to go out and remind shooters that it is time to STOP SHOOTING. Enjoy and be safe. You will be given one warning about shooting past posted hours, the second time you may lose your membership permanently. On May 1st shooting hours will change to 8am to 6pm and last until Oct. 1st when the hours will go back to 8am to 5:30pm.
2X4 FRAMES AND BASES: I was out replacing the cardboard on the target frames. I noticed that we are still getting bases and frames shot up, remember to PLEASE place your targets in the center of the frames. Some of the bases have holes as big as my thumb that someone shot up. All this costs our club money and time to repair.
SPENT BRASS: We are still finding spent brass on the ground, mostly on the pistol range. We put out buckets, one for brass and one for aluminum and steel cases. We really appreciate you putting them in the right bucket. Thanks, again!
REMINDER: The range is closed while there are any scheduled shoots going on. Also, when Arizona Water is checking or working on the well.
FRNA GRANT: Still no word on our grant, we don’t even know if we will get one this year. But if we do, we will pour the cement on the bench rest area to eliminate some of the mud holes when it rains and picking up spent shell casings will be easier.
RANGE SAFETY RULES: Please obey all safety rules; these are for your safety and others. THIS is a COLD RANGE. Do not be walking around with a loaded gun. We have had to remind several shooters not to do this.
MAIN GATE: Remember if you are the last one to leave the range PLEASE CLOSE AND LOCK IT. ALSO PLEASE CHECK THE WATER VALVE AT THE TOILETS TO BE SURE IT IS OFF. THANKS.
CLUB RENEWALS: About the middle of April membership renewal forms be emailed to those with email and snail mail to those who do not have email. We will have the ability to accept credit/debit cards by phone or in person. The use of credit/debit cards will incur an additional charge of $5.00. Membership rules still apply, New Membership MUST be done in person, renewals may be done in person, by phone via-credit/debit card and e-mailing completed renewal application or by mail.

BASIC PISTOL CLASS: The women’s club is putting on a basic pistol class on Saturday Mar. 20th.
