Training Coordinator Resignation

Posted January 13, 2017


I am resigning from the position of Training Coordinator due to health and mobility issues from multiple sclerosis (MS). I don’t know who is going to take over. If you are interested in getting firearms training I suggest you come to either the Executive Board or General Membership meetings and express your desires.

Happy New Year!

Posted December 28, 2016



As a firing range, first and foremost on our list of activities is shooting. When we use the term “We’re Open” it means bring your guns and your ammunition and come shoot. We're open, our public hours in the Winter run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.



We will be closed to all shooting activity on New Year’s Day. This includes afterhours shooting. We may close early on New Year’s Eve.


Have a Happy New Year!

The time has come to shut down the Thursday evening trap and 5 stand for the season. The weather has turned cold and some of our equipment does not respond well in the lower temperatures. We have had a good year since we started this last April and we will be back in the Spring.

Note from the Nominating Committee Chairman

Posted November 21, 2016


The Vision of the Club is “Provide our Members and the Community with a safe and responsible location to practice shooting sports and training”. I’ve watched the same group of 20-30 behind-the-scenes volunteers plus another 25 or so range officers keep the Club open, operational, and safe.


Although we are a Club, the reality is...[read more]


25 Years Ago at the PSC – November 1991

Posted November 5, 2016


Discovered among some old work items were seven slides taken of the PSC rifle and pistol ranges in November 1991. The slides were scanned. The place looked different back then. Note the gravel parking lot complete with mud puddles and pot holes. No baffles, no concrete range divider walls, no enclosed shooting covers, tires for range divider walls, and no range office or buildings or storage sheds.


Range fees were collected on the honor system, deposit the money in a container on a post at the front gate. These pictures were taken shortly after completion of a range reconfiguration spearheaded by Bill Price. The reconfiguration cut the width of the 50 yard shooting line in half and tripled the width of the 100/200 yard rifle lines by moving half of the 50 yard berm out to 100 yards. The old 50 yard line width extended to the end of the concrete pad you can see at 25 yards on page 1 of 7. The pictures, in one PDF file can be found here.


The November 1991 newsletter was available so it was scanned and is provided here. You do not know what you have got until it is gone.


If you have any old pictures, slides, or club items you would like to share, let me know and I will help get them on the web page.
