Gun Show Volunteers

Looking for a way to get your volunteer hours somewhat painlessly? Volunteer to work at a gun show and get to meet prospective members and talk to them about the things you enjoy about the club and why you find it a worthwhile investment. You will also have the opportunity to walk the show and meet other exhibitors, find good deals on guns, ammunition, and paraphernalia. There are 7 shows every year. Four at the Hampton Convention Center, January, March, September, and November and three at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, February, April, and October. They are held on a weekend so it would be for a Saturday or Sunday. If this sounds like something that you would be willing to do. Send an email to Gary Wyse ( and ask to be placed on the Gun Show volunteer list. You will receive an email advising everyone on the list of the next upcoming show. Respond quickly as it is based on a first come, first served basis. All efforts are made to allow people who have not worked previously to be offered the first choice.

There are several shows in the Richmond area every year that the club would like to participate in, but we need a volunteer to be responsible for maintaining the show gear and helping with setup and tear down before and after each show. If this is something you might be interested in, please contact Gary Wyse ( for more information.

New shooting benches for the 25/50

A huge thanks to Braden Willis, Boys Scouts Troop 16, and his father, David, for building and donating new shooting benches, rifle racks, sitting benches and a scorers chair to the club for his Eagle Scout project. All the shooting benches were placed at the 25 and 50. A couple rifle racks and benches were also placed at the 50 and the rest along with the scorers chair were placed at the shotgun range.


Gate locking procedure changed.

The locking procedure to secure the main gate has changed to a much simpler process. When it is time to secure the gate we no longer place both locks together. We just wrap our portion around the gate and secure the chain only on the gate. The Centers lock is secured to the main post and locked to the chain. Please continue to zero out the lock when you open the lock though. If you have any question please reach out to me the MO, the President or the Provost for guidance.


Important AED has been moved

The AED has been temporarily moved into the men’s restroom. This will ensure that we don’t cold soak the battery and shorten its life expectancy. Signage has been placed at all the key places to advise that the AED is in the men’s restroom.

March 2nd Work Party / Calling all Pinheads to build new tables

March 2nd, at 9am, will be a chance to get your service hours complete before the renewal period starts.

We will be having a work party to build replacement frames for the ranges and to build the pin tables for the upcoming bowling pin season commencing in April. You Pinheads know who you are that shot up all the tables. Also, general range cleanup will be accomplished. We will need leaf blowers, power saws(table saw and/or miter saw), power drills and general hand tools for the projects. We will also need some extension cords to run from the building as power is currently limited at the SRB/50. A bonus would be a power washer to cleanup the concrete at the range and the bathrooms and also the doors on the building. There will be some other small jobs planned if time allows.

If you have any questions or have specific skills or tools please reach out to me.

Rimfire Steel Challenge – Sunday, Feb 18th!

Folks, our first steel challenge for Rimfire was a huge success last month and with the increasing member requests we just had to give it another try for this month. The Rimfire Steel Challenge will challenge even the best of our members on this Sunday, February 18th.

The Steel Challenge is a speed shooting competition consisting of several modified stages using five to eight steel targets with one being the red stop plate. Competitors are scored solely by the time it takes to complete each stage.  The course of fire is designed to be completed by even the most inexperienced shooter using one 10-round magazine without the need to reload “on the clock.”  Suggest 22LR semi-auto pistols or rifles with 2 to 5 magazines, but bring what you have and we will make it an enjoyable event. There will be some firearms and ammunition available if you want to just come out and give it a try.

Members – $5.00 & Guests – $10.00.  The range set up at 7:00 am, Safety Meeting 8:00-8:30 am, the safety meeting is mandatory to shoot the match. Match starts promptly at 9:00am.  Contact Match Director: Tom Sanford, email at The SRB/25 & 50m Range is reserved for this next Modified Rimfire Steel Challenge.

Another defensive shooting match in the books

Another defensive shooting match in the books we had a record setting day with a grand total of 24 shooters the most we’ve ever had thus far I would like to thank everyone that came out and joined us

Going forward in an effort to condense things down a little bit we will be combining a few categories predominantly all handguns including 22 Rimfire and revolvers will be under the pistols category with the semi-automatic pistols so going forward there will only be four categories pistols rifles shotguns two guns additionally shooting the same category multiple times with different firearms will be listed on the official scores not marked not for score as it would have been in the past


The next defensive shooting match will be March 2nd 8:00 a.m. set up 8:30 Shooters brief if you plan on attending please send me an email letting me know at so that I can get an idea of how many people to expect


The shooting scores are in the attached PDF hear —->Defensive shooting scores<—–


For any questions please contact me at


Additionally someone had loaned a leather single magazine pouch to a fellow competitor and left before that competitor was able to give it back it has been placed in the Shack on the rifle range for the individual that loaned it to get it back

Calling all Bowling Pin Shooters Pin Pickup Next Tuesday

Gentle Shooters,

We need your help. We will be buying our annual 100 cases of used bowling pins next Tuesday, February 13th at 7PM. They are heavy and bulky and they don’t fit in our Corvettes very well at all. We need able bodied shooters to assist with moving the pins from the bowling alleys to the warehouse where there are stored until that wonderful first Saturday of the month. Trucks and SUV’s are very helpful as well. We will be going to two bowling alleys and then to a storage facility in Virginia Beach to unload. Hopefully we will have enough people that we can go to both alleys at once and just meet at the warehouse. Please email me at if you can help. Once I see how many people can help, I will tell you where to meet up.
