This is just a friendly reminder that at the last board of directors meeting a decision was made about shooting hours for Sundays and special holidays:
Please be advised that Sunday shooting hours are now 10 AM to dusk (or 9 PM).
This was established for the sake of our neighbors who have expressed concerns about the noise early on Sundays. In addition to the Sunday change, please be advised on New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving day, and on Christmas day the hours for all ranges will be 12 PM to 4 PM.
Please note that shooting of steel targets is also strictly prohibited after 7:00PM everyday.
We ask that each and every member adhere to these changes.
ACCESS THROUGH THE MAIN GATE TO THE RANGES BEGINS AT 9:05 AM – ENDS AT 9:00 PM
Any earlier and your FOB will not work. Also, make sure you are out of the ranges before 9:00 PM as your key fob will cease to operate the gate at that time.
Normal shooting hours are from 9 AM until DUSK daily.
Please adhere to this schedule in consideration of our neighbors.
Due to increasing costs of doing business the Board of Directors have approved increases in the club dues for all members. The annual work fee has been incorporated in the annual dues.
The following dues schedule is in effect as of April 1st, 2017:
Single-Member Dues will be $85.00
Family-Member Dues will be $110.00
Senior-Member Dues will be $35.00
Junior-Member Dues will remain at $20.00
Benefactor member dues will increase to 850.00.
“DC loss for gun control puts New York City’s laws at risk.” by Seth Lipisky, New York Post,
The latest fight over gun control in Washington, DC, looks like one for New York to watch. It’s on the question of whether the District of Columbia can require residents applying for pistol permits to show “good reason.”
Short work was made of the question this week by US District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. He struck down DC’s requirement that gun-permit applicants provide a “good reason” to own a firearm. And he set an aggressive schedule to speedily resolve the granting of a permit to plaintiffs.
It’s not yet clear whether DC and its police chief, Cathy Lanier, are going to appeal the district court ruling. It is clear, though, that the case will echo in New York and other cities that require a showing of need to carry a pistol.
And no wonder. Continue reading
