October FunShoot

This Saturday, the 22th of September, 2016, we will be hosting a 5 stage falling steel FunShoot. This is the last FunShoot for 2016, we will be back in January.

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 max per stage. Of course you can always shoot the whole thing pistol or carbine only, I will be.....
To us, a pistol caliber carbine is 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 a bit higher than usual, around 150 targets. There will be some movement required of the shooter, but not a ton. All of our special toys will be out for this one.
This is a free form shoot. I will present shooters with targets, 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 a setup for this Friday afternoon, the 21th at some point, and it will be short. Email me if you are interested in helping out, it will take less than 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. There is no carrying of loaded firearms, open or concealed.

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.
