The instructional clinic is designed to teach you firearm safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, giving you the confidence you need to safely handle and operate a firearm. It's a safe and friendly environment whether you're picking up a gun for the first time or just brushing off some dust and need a refresher. You'll immediately feel at ease at our clinic and will be provided with hands-on one of a kind experience with several of our certified instructors. No experience or equipment is necessary to participate. This clinic is only for those over the age of 18.
We need about 25 certified Instructors to help out. Please contact Ron Ayres if you are an instructor who is able to help with this event.

The archery range is undergoing some major renovations. While this is taking place it will require it to be closed at times. We are not allowing the use of broadhead arrows on any of the targets at this time while those target blocks are removed. Your patience is requested while the work is being done. I’m sure if you are an archer you will be pleased with the end results. If you are unsure of the range status please contact Ron Ayres or John Spiewak. REMEMBER NO BROADHEADS AT THIS TIME
We will be working on pistol range installing the pockets for the 25yd backers. This will allow for 12 or more lanes of shooting at that distance. This is all in preparation for our upcoming pistol shoot which will be scheduled as soon as the range work is complete. We hope to have the same number of lanes installed at 15yds as well. Again we ask for your patience as the work being done as it will require the range to be closed for short periods of time. It is difficult to inform everyone of when these closures will take place since it’s based on volunteer schedules and the weather as well. Anyone planning on using the pistol range is asked to contact Ron Ayres before heading down to make sure it is open for shooting. All work shall be completed as soon as possible and an announcement will be made at that time. Those wishing to help are asked to contact Ron Ayres so we can get it done as quickly as possible.

Members must have a valid SCSC Range Badge to use the ranges and must be visible at all times to other shooters on the ranges.
A member is only allowed 2 guests on the range at once. Others must remain off the firing line. A member is the Club member, not the member's spouse (which is counted as one of the guests).
When shooting the new reactive targets on the pistol range Absolutely no HOLLOW POINT ammunition is to be used.
Anyone caught using hollow point ammunition on these targets will lose their range privileges and possibly their club membership.
Hollow points destroy the targets and this is considered destruction of club property and will not be tolerated. Pictures show the damage caused by using the wrong ammunition. Only round nosed bullets are allowed to be used on these targets.
Please pick up all your brass and deposit in the buckets. Remove your targets and place in the trash cans.
