New Range Heater UP and RUNNING




Club Meeting Tonight at 7pm




Range Use / Etiquette


Lately rumors have been heard that some long-time members have been rude to other members,

telling them what to do and literally taking over the place. 

Taking the responsibility to be the “Range Master” does not give a member, new or old, the right to be rude or to bully others.


Remember that we were all new members at some time, and at sometime in the past

we all had to learn about how to use the range and our firearms.  

The club now has over 900 members and everyone must be courteous and friendly toward others.


Please be helpful and friendly to all other members. 

If you can help another member improve, whether a Safety Item or a Shooting Technique;

be friendly and explain to them what they might be doing it wrong, and recommend how to do it better.


Observe the 15-minute Rule

When a member(s) come in after you, be sure to work out with them how to enable them to shoot within 15-minutes of their arrival.


Remember, you can bring guests but you need to pay the $2 range fee.   

Only bring one specific guest 3 or 4 times.  Then encourage them to become a member.  


Be sure everyone entering the range signs the entry book at the front door BEFORE entering the range.   

Deposit $2 daily guest fee in the payment slot in the door inside the range.  

Also remember, you can only bring guests 4 days a month.  You get to choose which 4 days, but only 4 days a month.

Bill & Larry Watson






Two Tennessee rednecks were out hunting, and as they walked along they came upon a huge hole in the ground.

They approach it and where amazed at the size of it.

The first hunter says, "Wow, that’s some hole; I can’t even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is?" 

The second hunter says," I don’t know. Let’s throw somethin’ down there, listen and see how long it takes to hit bottom."


The first hunter says, "Hey, there’s an old automobile transmission over there.  Give me a hand, we’ll throw it in and see."


So they pick it up and carry it over and count one, two, three and heave it in the hole. They are standing there listening, looking over the edge,

When they hear a rustling behind them. As they turn around, they see a goat come crashing through the underbrush,

run up to the hole and, without hesitation, jump in headfirst.


While they are standing there staring at each other in amazement, peering into the hole, trying to figure out what that was all about,

an old farmer saunters up.

"Say there," says the farmer, "You fellers didn’t happen to see my goat around here anywhere, did you ?"


The first hunter says,

"Funny you should ask, but we were just standing here a minute ago and

a goat came running out of the bushes doin’ bout a hunnert miles an hour and jumped . . .headfirst into this here hole!!"


The old farmer said, "Naw, that’s impossible . ..

I had him chained to a transmission."
