Random thoughts of a cynical webmaster

One day our ‘modern’ firearms will be looked at like antiques.  People will wonder, “what were they thinking setting off mini high pressure explosions next to their heads and hands..lunacy!” They will have the same nostalgia that many people have when looking at old black powder muzzle loader pistols and rifles.

New Steel Targets on the 25yd Range

Steel targets

The new steel targets were added to the 25 yard range today, by Chris Alumbaugh, Daryl Fitzpatrick, and myself, I didn’t do much other than carry it out and shoot at it. However, it was a lot of fun to shoot at and reset the target without walking downrange. The best part was seeing a visitor enjoy a round of fun. He left with a great big smile on his face after knocking them down. This is a great addition to the range we love to shoot at.

As with all things at the club, we ask that if members want to enjoy the fun that can be had, then please treat the target respectfully. If it’s destroyed by carelessness we’re not likely to be able to continue using it.

Thanks to all that were involved in putting the steel targets together, I had a lot of fun using it today.

Help Wanted

The Rickreall Gun Show will be coming up on Saturday and Sunday, December 10 and 11, 2016, at the Polk County Fairgrounds. As usual, the Four Corners Rod and Gun Club will support their gun show efforts by having an information and membership table at the show to make our facilities, programs, and activities know to the people attending the show.

Member volunteers are needed to man the table. Two members are needed at the table for each of four shifts or a total of eight members. Table shifts will run from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturday and 9:00 AM till 12:00 PM and 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Sunday.

Club members manning the table will receive free admission to the gun show. This, of course, is in addition to the reward of being of service to the club, gaining an opportunity to meet and talk with a lot of interesting people, and being able to browse around the show and look at all the goodies.

Members desiring to help will need to sign up for a shift so that their names can be given to show management for name tags and free entry. To sign up for a shift, or if you have questions, please call Tim Brown at 503-390-1922.
