Anyone wishing to use the Club's ranges must first attend a range safety class. Please contact the range director for the next available class -- firstname.lastname@example.org.
NRA Range Safety Officer Class (RSO)
SCSC will be having a Range Safety Officer instructional class November 23. Anyone interested in becoming an RSO please contact Ron Ayres 609-502-9760 or email@example.com. Fee for the class will be $75.
We will be pouring concrete for the firing line along with the wheelchair access ramps this week. The Rifle range will be closed starting Friday 11/22 and will reopen on Wednesday 11/27. Anyone with questions can contact Ron Ayres at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also please remember to shoot the target backer that lines up with the bench/shooting position you are firing from. If you want to shoot at 40 yards please don’t sit at the 75 or 100yards benches. This cross lane shooting can be dangerous and is not going to be tolerated. Anyone seen doing this will be subject to loss of range privileges and/or membership. Please keep our ranges safe for everyone at the club by following the range rules. If you are not sure of the rules please contact us and we can arrange a refresher course for you or have you attend the next range badge class.
Our skeet range is open all year round on Sundays from 8am-12. We are still shooting on Wednesday nights at 4pm for as long as the shooters continue to show up. Cost per round is still $3 for members and $4 for non-members.
Since the trap shooters are done shooting for the season we will try to get the much needed concrete renovation done. This will include redoing all the concrete shooting stations with the addition of a wheelchair ramp. We hope to have this done before the weather gets too bad.
The completion of the 7-yard range has brought out many shooters to the range so SCSC would like to start a 6-8 week friendly pistol competition. It would be open to all members regardless of your level of expertise. This most likely would take place in the Spring due to the weather. However, to see if there is enough interest in pursuing the idea we are asking those wishing to participate contact Ron Ayres – email@example.com or Kim Baker – firstname.lastname@example.org If enough people are interested we may have different classes. Maybe even a Women’s Only class if enough shooters express interest. We are in the early stages of putting this together so any help or ideas will be welcome.
Also please remember to clean up your brass and deposit in the buckets provided. All paper targets are to be removed and thrown in trash cans.
Range Badge Class
The next range badge class will be scheduled on an as needed basis. Anyone wishing to get on the list for the next class should contact Ron Ayres - email@example.com
A range badge is REQUIRED to shoot on the clubs ranges along with safety glasses and hearing protection.
U.S. Law Shield Seminar
All attendees will receive the U.S. Law Shield publication (When Can I Legally Shoot? Knowing The Law Of Deadly Force,) a $9.95 value, FREE for registrants. This publication explains the ins-and-outs of the law of the deadly force in plain language, helping you understand when you are legally allowed to pull the trigger.
We have noticed several range violations over the summer and would like to remind those who use the ranges to obey the rules. Anyone caught in violation of the rules could lose their membership or at the very least have to attend a range safety meeting prior to using the ranges again. Range badges must be worn at all times when you are on the ranges. Guests are limited to 2 per member. Hearing and eye protection are required by everyone on the range regardless of whether or not you are shooting. No handling of firearms is allowed when another shooter is down range. This includes loading and unloading magazines or your range bag upon arrival. If you have questions regarding the range rules please ask before using them. We will be happy to answer any questions. If you are the first to arrive at one of the ranges please turn on the RED light. If you are the last shooter check other ranges before turning out the light. If the YELLOW/AMBER light is on, it is possible that maintenance is being performed at that time so please ASK prior to getting your firearm out of your vehicle whether the range is open or not. Shooting holes in anything other than paper targets is strictly prohibited. This includes the roof and the benches. Care should be taken when handling a loaded firearm to prevent unintentional discharges.
Please remember to follow the rules of SAFETY at the range. Treat all of your firearms as if they are loaded and keep them pointed in a safe direction at all times. Never put your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot at the intended target. Please avoid being distracted while handling firearms also. Small children should not be on the range unless they are under your immediate supervision. Multiple children need to be kept back from the range and under someone else’s care while shooting on the ranges. Please be considerate to your fellow shooters and pick up all of your brass and dispose of used targets before leaving the range. Buckets are provided for the disposal of the brass only. All used targets and shotgun shells are to be disposed of in the trash can. The bucket contents are available to those who wish to reload only. Under no circumstances is the brass to be taken from club property to be sold for scrap. Anyone caught doing so faces disciplinary action by the Club.
Anyone wishing to donate targets or ammunition for the upcoming events, please contact Ron Ayres - 609-502-9760.
We need .22lr and with .410, 20, & 12 gauge shotgun shells along with .177 pellets. Targets needed are the shoot-n-c type. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
