April FunShoot, This Saturday the 20th

4/18  Ok, Final details:
We are at 50 shooters, we lost a few to the Colt 3manteam series, so there are slots left open.

This shoot will be open to pistol, shotgun (7/12 shot or smaller, no slugs) and pistol caliber (includes .22) carbines.

Due to lack of interest, I am not planning on doing "official" scoring.  I will issue score sheets so you can keep track of your buddy and shooting order. I will no longer try to keep track of all the various combinations of guns and problem solutions available at the shoot for posting, heck, this is a FunShoot, lets just have some safe fun.

I will present you with 7 stages of "stuff", and instructions on what types of targets can be engaged with what type of gun, the rest is up to you.  Shoot it however you like, with whatever you like, as long as you let the RO know your intent, and you do so safely.

Registration begins at 8, no walk thru, most of you are veterans, nubees will be mentored.  Safety brief and special speech at 8:45, shooting real close to 9am.

Round count is what you make of it, you can shoot as much or as little as you like, and with whatever guns you bring.  I can tell you, there will be about 100 targets available to engage.


Remember, York is a cold range, please have all firearms unloaded and secured when you arrive at the range, including CC permit holders.  Handle firearms only after you register, and receive instructions.




We are up to about 40, first set of confirms will go out Wed evening.

This is not our usual Saturday.  I will be using 3 of the stages from the team shoot yesterday, with a little modification.....

Usual options, single or multiple guns, timed or not, round count it up to you, etc, etc.  I will post more details in a day or so.  The important thing its that signup is open at yorksignup@gmail.com.

I'd love to come...need to find some 9mm ammo, everywhere I look it's sold out :(

I have 10 boxes of steel case Tula 9mm that will be for sale to shooters. I will split it up as evenly as I can if you shoot with us that day, and let me know you need.

I haven't been in a couple weeks but during the height of the panic, Trop out in Elizabethtown had 9mm. Prices were even reasonable. They even had some in bulk boxes. I think at one point they did institute a 2box/person limit. I'd give them a call and then if they have any take a friend.
