Only one or two (forgot which) of the pits is authorized for long gun use. Check the sign at each pit and stick to handguns on the pits without signs.Thinking about joining on Monday. Wanted to get into 3 gun and my current club doesnt have the ranges for it. I see theres regular ISPSA practice, could you do some 3 gun practice in the sand pits?

I urge you to get into a one gun game (USPSA, IDPA ect.) before you try out 3 gun.Thinking about joining on Monday. Wanted to get into 3 gun and my current club doesnt have the ranges for it. I see theres regular ISPSA practice, could you do some 3 gun practice in the sand pits?
The skeet gate is opened Sunday 8:30-13:30; Tuesday 17:30-21:30 and Thursday 9:00-12:00 for scheduled skeet events.I don't think I've swiped in to open the main gate once in the past 3 months. I usually go in the mornings, usually Friday and Saturday. I always check the calendar and even if there are no events scheduled, the gate's always been open.
What's up with that?
Motion sensors were part of the grand reshitterization. Notice the lack of light switches on the walls.I couldn't make tonight's general meeting. Can anyone PM me anything interesting that came up? I like to keep up on current/future initiatives - you know, interesting stuff like motion sensors on the bathroom lights so they can't be left on when nobody's there.
I'm looking at the calendar for April. Which ones are public shoots?It's a great club! I'd recommend you go to a couple of the public shoots and introduce yourself, they are all listed on the calendar. I highly doubt anyone will just blindly sponsor you as we need to vouch for you. Members are also limited to 2 sponsor-ships per year.

USPSA practices on Weds evenings.
Probably a few more. Basically opportunities for you to spend some time with club members and show off your safe firearm handling skills
Then join someone on a bay in use. There is no rule or policy that allows an in-duh-vidual sole tenancy on a bay.Membership has swelled to the point that getting range time on the pistol bays on warm weekends is nearly impossible unless you show up early or get lucky.
Outside of organized events like indoor steel and .22 Pistol league you will mostly have a private range. I lived in Mass for two years and even though I don't live there anymore I remain a member. Its a great club with mostly great people and no stupid rules. You can load to capacity and you are responsible for your shots. I don't think you can shoot from holster indoors because I recall the steel shoots are low ready. I did it on the outdoor range all the time but I never considered it may not have been allowed, an officer probably needs to answer that one.I'm looking for an indoor pistol range. Looking for a place, week nights in the winter I can shoot indoors. Hows the typical lane availability? Shooting from the holster allowed? Thanks
