URCS First Shot Photo Featured in NSSF National AD

It appeared in the Apr/May 2013 issue on page 25. The digital magazine can be viewed on line at: http://www.nssfblog.com/view-the-aprilmay-edition-of-shot-business-magazine/ .

February 7th 2013

Our Annual members meeting and Potluck in December brought some changes to the club. Our new chamber flag rule was debated and voted on to pass by a narrow margin.

Chamber flags will be required any time firearms are set down and the hand is removed.

Newly elected and re-elected officers are James Clark President, David Strannard Vice President, Colleen Warner Secretary, James Cobert Chief Range Officer , and Robert Mitchell Treasurer. We also have three new Range Officers, Tom Stewart, Greg Van Koersel, and William Walker . A lot of volunteers are working behind the scenes to make this Shooting Club work more smoothly, but we can always use another hand or two from time to time. If you are thinking you would like to help this motley crew contact : Newsletter  for more information.


URCS Members should now have current membership cards, be sure to bring your card for discounted admission at the range. Membership has a few benefits from time to time, BBQs, and shooting competitions are the more popular activities. On a trial basis,  we are inviting Members to enter a drawing for some reloading brass. Details are on the Membership area of the URCS webpage. Good luck !

URC Newsletter                                                                       April 2, 2012

 

We give many thanks to “First Shot” for hosting a program to introduce first time shooters to the sport of target shooting. Some of the pictures are on the “Photos” page, I will be switching them every now and then, to try to show them all. Our instructors and range officers did a splendid job coaching out some of the shooters natural talent for excellent groups on their targets. We hope to do something like that again someday.

            In the beginning of March, URC hosted the “Range Officers Dinner” at Iron on Broadway. Oddly, the place was out of Prime rib and chicken, but our fearless eaters managed to devour steaks, salmon and other platters of food in good company. Lets not forget the deserts… without breaking our code of silence (what happens at URC dinners stays at URC) I only have to say.. you guys are nuts, lets do it again .

            The long awaited range repair night will be held on Tuesday, May 15th 2012. 6pm to 9pm. We need volunteers for helping make our range function properly. If you would like more information and can help email  Newsletter  It would help to know about how many people may be helping out so we can organize better.

            Many of you are starting to make your own cartridges, some of you are melting lead to make your own bullets. For those of you that are new to the process, I pass on a bit of advice… Fishing weights can hold water from the high pressures of the depths they reach. In the not so distant past a friend of mine tried to melt a ten pound sinker only to have it explode, spraying molten lead 10 feet in the air… Face shields my friends, and be safe. Oh and you can flux the lead with common sawdust, the carbon turns the tin back into the mix and gets rid of that slag on top.
