Izaak Walton

One question I get asked an awful lot is "do I have to be a member to shoot the matches?"

No, you don't. All of our matches and fun shoots are open to the public. However, you do have to be either a member or guest to use our ranges, or any other part of the facility at any other time. If you live in the area you may want to consider joining. Izaak Walton is easy to join and really a bargain at $100 a year. You could spend that much in just a couple hours at a private range. We also have an archery range, fishing, picnic grounds, trap fields, and more. Just as important as our club grounds is our mission: The Izaak Walton League is part of a national organization dedicated to pro-gun, pro-hunting, and pro-fishing conservation. We know that conservation means wise use not non-use.

If you're not a member but are interested in joining email me at hkbrt@verizon.net and I'll have you in before you know it.

CED 2011 MASC

Once again Competitive Edge Dynamics has agreed to be the match sponsor for the Mid-Atlantic Section Championship. This year they are selling us a tandem chronograph set up like they use at Nationals and other majors at a nice discount. So be prepared for it.

The match applications are flowing in at an impressive rate. If you want to be sure to get your first choice of shooting times I wouldn't wait until the last minute.

Insanity rules


When I pulled into the range this morning, the therm on my truck said "3". I thought "this is insanity'; interestingly enough, I was accused of that several times this morning...
We had a ball! 18 or 20 folks showed up, we put up some stuff and had fun, some of us brought many guns. It was grand. Sorry to those of you who wimped and missed out.
And the day was not just for the "burly men" among us, 3 ladies showed up to shoot as well, and they weren't "burly" at all...

How does that work for you, fellers.....

Top Shot Season 2

Season 2 of Top Shot starts February 8th. I really enjoyed the show last year, and recognized several of the contestants. This year there are several names you might recognize as fellow USPSA competitors, though there's no one this time whose number is in my phone like last time.

Check out the bios of the shooters when you have time.

Foolishness

If you shot the Topton 3 Man 3 gun last year, you'll understand this for sure. If not, you may still find this link funny.

January match cancelled

I regret to inform you that we will not be holding a USPSA match in January 2011. The weather is still too cold, the ground is frozen, and there are no signs of improvement before our scheduled date of 1/9/2011.

The Fun Shoot is still tentatively scheduled for 1/22 should the weather improve.
