December 2018

To all of our members: I would like to thank everyone for the support of our club. This club survives because of you the members. We have done a lot this year, and we have a lot on the schedule for next year. I hope all of you and your families have a great holiday season.

Grab a friend that may be new to shooting and bring them out to show them what a great place the club is. Our Sporting Clays course is open and running.

1 Dec.  Steel Shoot. Steel shooting offers a port of entry to the shooting sports that is far less intimidating than practical shooting. Steel provides an excellent starting place for young or beginning shooters. Steel offers the most diversified shooting sport out there, making it appealing to youth and seniors, novice and experts. Any practical handgun, including 22 rimfires (both handgun and rifle). Sign up starts at 9AM. Cost for monthly club level matches are $10 for Pinetucky Club Members and $15 for non-members.

15 Dec. USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) Pistol Match: Practical Shooting measures the shooter’s ability to shoot rapidly and accurately through obstacle-laden courses. The shooter moves, negotiates, runs, covers, and speed reloads through the stage as fast as their skill will allow. If this fast paced shooting sounds like fun, come out and give it a try. Show up with an unloaded centerfire pistol in .38, 9mm, .40, or .45 in an enclosed case and ask a match official where the safe area is so you can holster your gun safely. Also bring a rigid holster, magazines, and mag pouches capable of holding at least 32 rounds. Overall match round counts are usually between 100 and 150 rounds. Specific division requirements can be found at http://uspsa.org. Starts at 9:30 AM and cost will be $20 ($15 for Pinetucky members, active duty military, police, and fire).

15 & 16 Dec. Club Skeet Shoot. We will hold the Club Skeet Shoot. This will be 50 Targets in each event. You can come out anytime during the weekend to shoot.

29 Dec. Target Pistol Matches include time-plus scoring, NRA-style tombstone targets, and involve shooting from a stationary position(s). Stages present competitors with ‘short course’ complexity and are designed to entertain and challenge new and experienced shooters alike. Centerfire pistols are allowed, no pistol caliber carbine. Match Fee $15.

Note: When shooting on rifle and pistol ranges, please be aware of where you place any target on the backer when the target is larger than the plastic part of the backer. We had just made some new backer frames, and someone placed a USPSA target on the backer so that the frame was positioned behind the head of the target. 

Reminder: Club annual dues are due in January.
