NOTE: Seal Team Six trains at Dam Neck Annex of the Oceana Naval Air Station, just south of Virginia Beach, NOT at the Braintree Rifle & Pistol Club. Shoot accordingly.
SHOTGUN SHOOTING
Shotguns with shot shell can be used on the rifle range for sighting in purposes ONLY at the designated shotgun target. Shotguns with slugs can be sighted in using the 50 yard targets.
RANGE OFFICERS NEEDED
The range officer program is paramount to insure that members shoot from designated positions, use guns appropriate and allowed on the ranges, and shoot appropriately so that bullets hit the target area/backstops/berms and not the baffles. While all our ranges are designed to prevent bullets from leaving the property, costly damage can occur to our baffles and/or increased maintenance costs. As a nonprofit volunteer organization, we rely upon members to run and operate the club. Range officers are needed.
Please contact the club through the club web site at
https://brp.org/contact-brpc
if interested in becoming a range officer.
TRACTOR PURCHASE
The club is contemplating trading in our John Deere tractor and purchasing a new, slightly larger tractor for use at the club. We are looking for members with experience with heavy equipment who can assist in our selection process. We are also looking for persons who are licensed to assist in the operation of the tractor. Please e-mail the club via our web site if you can assist.

Wait - is face camo allowed or not?
I'm not throwing mine away just yet - plus it matches my Condor cross-draw vest.

I mean, if I'm going to sit in an old plastic chair and shoot my AR, I at least want to look cool AF doing it.

The notice made a comment about Navy Seals, so I guess the was a problem with someone negligently discharging into the baffles doing something the ROs or Fudds were itching to have an excuse to ban, "Please be certain that bullets are hitting the target area and not the baffles."

The club is overcrowded at time with the size of the membership and the outdoor ranges need to be expanded.

I also don't get why at least one of those heated/cooled parking attendant booths hasn't been provided for the RO's to warm up or cool off. The original clubhouse (why the road bends going into the ranges and there's some brick septic structure) before the current two was next to the outdoor ranges and it never made sense to me why the ROs didn't have a booth if not a shack with a room to warm up in and a single occupancy toilet.

Last I was at BR&P (2 yrs ago), we had a heated/A/C shack next to the rifle range. The town refused to allow the club to put a porta-potty up at the range. We mostly used the area behind the target shack anyway.

I have to be blind.

Not sure how the changes to the rifle range positions will stop people from hitting the baffles. Can’t fix stupid...
This is another case of BRP imposing a rule that punishes everyone else rather than kicking out dummies. There are valid concerns about people getting above the berms, but a rule isn't going to fix stupid. They could eventually build concrete no sky baffles. But that's a significant investment and the ranges would be down for awhile to put those systems up.

Does anyone know if Braintree is still running their CMP matches on 3rd Saturdays. It's not on the club calendar, but it's not unheard of things to slip through the cracks when it comes to the website. Not sure if they are doing them this year during covid.

Best to contact Ross or Zoo (CRO) and ask. IIRC the CMP matches usually weren't on the calendar. Being such a strange year, one can't assume that things on the calendar are happening either.

Anyone know if BRP is accepting new members or if still on hold?

Their site has been saying on hold since May, and I’ve sent an email with no response.

Pretty sure that's still the case. Indoor club space is still capacity restricted due to covid.
