Rimfire Winter Indoor Shooting Schedule

Posted on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 in .22 Rimfire, Announcements, Handgun

**** CANCELLATION – Sunday December 17/2017 , there will be no indoor shoot this day****

2017 – 2018 Season ** STARTING November 19th 10AM – Noon **

It’s that time of year again folks! We are shooting .22 indoors 10AM-12PM every second Sunday. Special note would be that I will stay 1 hr (until 11AM) and if no-one shows up or makes arrangements with me prior for a later arrival, I won’t guarantee that I will be there past 11:00.

If you are looking to use a club supplied firearm make sure you give me enough notice, I do not bring them unless prior arrangements have been made. We do have targets available for purchase at the club. Also a reminder that we will supply the ammunition (.22lr) for junior shooters but if you are going to take advantage of this offer, please try to give me a heads up so I know how many kids will be there needing ammunition.
