May FunShoot

This Saturday, the 28th of May, 2016, we will be hosting a 5 stage falling steel FunShoot.

On any stage, you can run any one or combination of two of the following guns; standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine or shotgun. You can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns per stage max please.

We have another new target treat, I'm sure you will love it....brahahah..... It is close to pure evil.

There will be no movement required of the shooter.

 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.
Please limit shotshells to 71/2 shot, lead or smaller.

Target count will be 100+.

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, the 27th, email me if you are interested in helping out. This one will probably take about 2 hours.

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.

For questions, please feel free to comment here, or email me at ghswope@gmail.com

May 3 Gun match at York

The May 3 gun match is full.  Took 17 minutes and we actually went over a little.  I have already replied "You're in" to everyone who got into the match.  Remember if you can't make it to let me know asap so we can take someone off the waiting list.  I am starting a waiting list.

Important:  Please note that any sign-ups received before 6:00 PM Sunday will not be accepted.  The countdown timer to the right tells you when it is OK to sign up.  I am posting this now so everyone has the information ahead of time.  If you are unable to email the correct address Sunday at 6:00 perhaps you can find someone to do it for you.

We will be hosting our May action match on Sunday, May 15th.  It will be 6 stages and all 3 guns will be used.  We will be using slugs, rifle and shotgun slings this match, and we do expect to use most of, if not all, of the 200 yards available on the rifle range.  The match fee will be $30.
The match day schedule is as follows:
7:30 finish set up (help is always appreciated)
8:00 registration begins
8:30 registration ends (anyone arriving after 8:30 is a spectator)
8:45 mandatory match briefing
9:00 shooting begins
To sign up for this match email us at yorksignup@gmail.com with your name, division, and squad requests.  You should receive a confirmation within a day or two. 

Don't take too long to sign up.  We do have a maximum number of shooters we will take for each of our matches and we do expect the matches to fill quickly.  Conversely, don't sign up if you don't intend to shoot, and if something comes up and you're not going to make it please let us know as soon as possible.  Cancelling after midnight Thursday night will still count as a no show.  At that point it's too late to fill your spot in most cases and the Nooks will be loaded.  People who persist in not showing up after signing up will not be invited back.  We want to benefit as many shooters as possible this year.
