Ammunition Restrictions

It was recently discovered that armor piercing ammunition damaged several steel rifle targets, which will require repair or replacement.  All shooters are reminded to comply with the following ammunition restrictions:

  • NO armor piercing ammunition.
  • NO tracer ammunition.
  • NO rifle caliber ammunition on the pistol range.

Examples of appropriate ammunition for handguns on the pistol range include .22 LR, 9mm, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 10mm and .45 ACP.  Pistol caliber carbines (PCC) are also allowed on the pistol range but limited to 9mm, 40 S&W, 10mm, and .45 ACP calibers.

Rifle caliber ammunition CANNOT be fired on the pistol range.  Examples of rifle caliber ammunition include but are not limited to .223 Remington, 5.45x39mm, 5.56x45mm NATO, 6.5 mm Creedmoor, 7.62x39mm, .308 Winchester, 7.62x51mm NATO, etc.

Please remember that we have an active video system 24 hours a day. Failure to adhere to our range rules can result in restricted range privileges or loss of membership.

These restrictions are in place for the safety of members and guests and to prevent target damage.  Please contact a Club Officer or Board Member for any questions.

REMINDER: Membership Renewals

Time is running out for current members to renew membership by 1/31/2019!

Please do not contact Charlie Compton for questions or membership issues.  He will not be available starting Wednesday due to a medical procedure, so please contact Whitney Adams (Secretary/Treasurer) at 859-404-0576 or one of the other board members.

 

Membership Renewals

All current members can send in the new application now thru Jan 31, 2019 to renew your membership. Starting this year we will no longer have workdays at the club. We have decided to hire the work done. We have increased the dues a small amount to cover this as well as the new law on taxes. Starting last summer some Non-Profit groups have to pay state taxes on income. We are in that category.

Any questions call Whitney Adams (Secretary/Treasurer) at 859-404-0576.

Thanks and look forward to seeing you at the range
