Ladies Concealed carry basics class

Concealed Carry Basics- For Women Only – Saturday April 19, 2015 9am to 5pm This fundamental handgun class will teach you what you want to know about shooting, selection, and more!
Ladies: Do you want to learn how to shoot a handgun but don’t know where to go to learn? Does your husband/boyfriend/significant other have a firearm or pistol in the home that you do not know how to use? Do you want to see how much fun the shooting sports can be? Come train with the area’s first and most successful Ladies Only training team. There are other places out there that have “Ladies or Women’s only” type classes, but you should come and see why our instructors have that certain approach that makes us the top trainers and educators in the area.
We all know that there are certain things that spouses or significant others should not teach each other or discuss, right? They usually include: driving lessons, politics, wallpapering or painting, and firearms. Why not come out and learn from some easy-going, approachable, competent, friendly, and non-testosterone charged instructors? Learning to handle a pistol is one of the most satisfying, empowering things that you can do.

For this class, you will need the following items:

A NY State Pistol Permit (not mandatory in this class!)
A working firearm (we can bring some)
100 rounds of ammunition (we will have some for you to purchase and use)
Eye and ear protection
Weather-appropriate clothing
A notebook
Water and snacks and a lunch
High necked shirts and comfortable shoes (no sandals or flip-flop)

If you do not have any of the above items or have questions about anything, please contact us before registering The cost is only 80.00.

2015 Winter Skeet League

Welcome back to most of you – and a special invitation and welcome to new shooters! Come and enjoy Sunday breakfast with a side of clays starting January 4th and continuing each week for 13 weeks. The 13th week – March 29th – is the shoot-off and steak bake.

This year’s league will feature a new format available to all who post 12 scores. Instead of receiving hats, those shooting the maximum 12 will be entered into a blind draw two shooter team format that will include extra prize money for the top scoring team at the shoot-off. More details will be available later this season.

Also this year, only your 8 best scores will be used to determine your class for the shoot-off, allowing most of us a few mulligans. Remember, you must post 8 scores to participate in the shoot-off for individual competition and 12 for the two shooter team competition. As in the past, shooters will be able to make up for missed weeks in order to get the minimum scores.

See ya at the club!
