July FunShoot

This Saturday, the 23rd of July, 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 (7 1/2 shot or smaller). You may bring all 3 to the shoot, and you can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns per stage max.

Pistol caliber carbine means any standard velocity pistol caliber, in a small rifle platform; .22LR, 9mm, .357, .40, .45, 300 BO subsonic and the like.

Target count will be 100-125 ish. There will be little movement required of the shooter. This is a free form shoot, meaning I will present shooters with targets, but it is up to the shooter to decide how best to engage them, as long as it is done in a safe manner.

Registration is from 8-8:30am, safety brief at 8:45, shooting close to 9am, we should be done by 1pm-ish
Cost is $20 for adults, $5 for kids under 18. There will be no food or drink available, so bring plenty to stay hydrated and fed.

There will be a setup for this Friday afternoon, the 22nd around 2-3pm, email me if you are interested in helping out. This one will probably take about an hour.

York is a cold range. Unloaded firearms are carried around the range holstered, boxed, bagged, carted or in a sock.  Long guns require a chamber flag, and they will be for sale.

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

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


Once again, we will be selling raffle tickets to support 31 Heroes,  www.31heroes.org.  This is an exceptional organization that supports veterans that suffer from TBI and PTSD.   What makes this one better than the rest is that 100% of the money goes to the cause, there are no administrative costs. This is a volunteer organization, run by some of the best in our sport.

The raffle tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20 and the prize is a very special Sig Sauer 226 MK25 with 31 Heroes markings and the SEAL anchor.  The MK25 is the pistol carried by SEALS and has special features, including a longer barrel, and light rail.  Only 31 of these special edition pistols were made for 31 Heroes.

We are honored to have one to raffle off and we want to really make some money for this group and the people they can help.  The pistol will be on display Saturday.  Please be generous.  The pistol is cool, but it's really about making a difference for veterans who deserve our help.
