April FunShoot

This Saturday, the 16th of April, 2016, we will be hosting a 5 stage FunShoot.

Last months experiment worked very well, so this month, we do more of the same. You can run any one or combination of two of the following guns, standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine or shotgun (7 1/2 shot lead or smaller only please). There will not be a 3 gun option.

This one will be carbine friendly, I will be probably be running mine almost exclusively. Shotguns will have some fun too, so don't discount that. We have a new stage treat, we get to use a prop many of you have been looking at and wishing for.......
and there will be the option of a little more movement than usual, but it will NOT be mandatory.

As a reminder, pistol caliber carbine means any standard velocity pistol caliber, in a small rifle platform; .22LR, 9mm, .357, .40, .45 and 300 BO subsonic and the like.  No high power.

Target count will be 100+, mostly steel.

Final setup and registration at 8am, safety brief at 8:45, shooting close to 9am.
Cost is $20 for adults, $5 for those lucky enough to be under 18 years.

There will be a setup for this Friday afternoon, email me if you are interested in helping out. This usually takes about an hour to put the final touches on, so if you have to take off work or travel far, please do not put yourself out.

As always, York is a cold range, all firearms will remain unloaded until the shooter is at the firing line and directed to do so.

Conceal carry is forbidden at this event.

That being said, you can carry your unloaded firearm around the range holstered, boxed, bagged, carted or in a sock.  Long guns require a chamber flag, and they will be for sale. You can load magazines and carry them just don't put them in the gun.

Bring family and friends, we are very new shooter and kid friendly. Spectators are welcome!

Everyone on the range MUST wear eye and ear protection. We will be shooting steel, and it creates shrapnel, little flying bits of metal that can hit you on occasion.
