Fun, Friendly, Not Hovering

Our staff are experts at two things… guns and being friendly. If you need help, they will help. If you want to just shoot, they will leave you alone. Their primary mission is to keep everybody safe, and to then make sure you have a great trip to the range.

USPSA Update...............

I spent 3 hrs at the range today spreading gravel on the 5 bays we can shoot tomorrow - jus cause I like you'll and I like to shoot........

So you will (and I will) "not" have to "shoot" in the mud...........

Taping targets will be a different story..........suggest wearing your waterproof foot gear..........

If you are a fair weather shooter.......... I understand your desire to stay home, and stay warm..........

AS for me........ when I subject myself to adversity....... I find out how I perform under adversity........

So - I will be shooting tomorrow........... anyone care to join me.....?? Long under wear recommended.........

9 am registration - 9:30 am first shots..........

Be well...................regards..........Wolf

PS: reduced chance of rain tomorrow......... Note: The Weather Gods have smiled on "us" before...... maybe tomorrow.......?????
