    Range question of the week: Can we shoot tin cans and junk at our ranges?

    Answer: NO

    To the person who thought it was a good idea to shoot at the fence above the pistol range: WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? Do you have any idea where those rounds went after they went thru the fence? Did you even think where they might go? Do you even care?

    If you see stupid stuff like this going on at our ranges, please try to get the person’s name, membership number, or license plate number and call the office at 330 832 2411.

    One stupid act like this could cost us the whole place.

    Please shoot safely. We are always only one trigger click away from a disaster.

    And by the way, if you don’t have a white membership card sorry you won’t have the new gate combination.

    Range question of the week; can I shoot a weapon with a binary trigger, forced return trigger or a bump stock at the NLFGC ranges?

    Answer; Yes you can shoot a weapon equipped with one of the above mentioned devices if;

    1, The device is considered legal under the rules and regulations of the ATF.

    2, You MUST follow range rule Section 2 Firearms safety rules subsection B) You must follow the 5 second rule between shots. Automatic or bump firing is prohibited.

    It is my understanding that bump stocks are still prohibited by the ATF at this time.

    Glock switches. As I understand the function of the Glock switch once the trigger is pulled one time the firearm will continue to fire until all the rounds in the magazine are fired. Since the rate of fire of this weapon cannot be controlled to one round every 5 seconds these are prohibited at our ranges.

    Yes, buzzkill but our ranges are designed to be target ranges not a place to come and dump rounds down range indiscriminately. There is too much chance of ricochets when they do not impact the limestone backstop.

    Please shoot safely. We are always only one trigger click away from a disaster.

    Thank you for your support.

    And by the way, if you don’t have a white membership card sorry you won’t have the new gate combination.

    Rifle and pistol range. When shooting at the rifle range select a shooting bench that is in a straight line down range with the target board you want to post your targets on. No cross firing between target boards. For example, do not take a position at the 50 yard bench and shoot across the range at the 100 yard target board. All bullets MUST impact the gray limestone backstop.

    Same at the pistol range. Select a shooting position then place your target stand at your desired distance in a straight line out from your shooting position. All bullets must impact the limestone backstop and not the earthen side walls.

    The only time out of position firing is allowed is during competitions such as Steel Challenge and USPSA events.

    Please shoot safely. We are always only one trigger click away from a disaster.

    Thank you for your support.

Many thanks to all who helped out and all the participants. Special thanks to Mike and Lisa Heaberlin for a great job.

    Traders Day side note:

    A lucky gentleman purchased a sweet A5 Browning Light 20 gauge. I believe the box for that gun is still at the Clubhouse. Let me know if you want it. 330 832 2411.

    Veterans Service Commission Seminar:

    There will be a Veterans Service Commission seminar at the Club on March 16. The purpose of this seminar is to inform vets of their benefits under the Pact Act. Details on the website soon.

Dues can always be paid by mail. Please get your dues payments in as soon as possible. The gate combination will be changed soon.

    Trap Range Closure:

    The trap range is closed for the season. When the weather does change, we will need more help to reopen the range. We would need help on Tuesday evenings and also on Sunday afternoons. You should be in good enough physical condition to lift about 30 pounds and be able to climb in and out of a trap house. We can teach you everything else. Please contact the Club office if you can help out. 330 832 2411.

    Indoor Archery and Air Rifle Programs:

    The indoor Archery and air rifle programs will be open every Sunday from 11 am until 3 pm. The last shoot will be Sunday, March 24th.

    Euchre Night:

    Euchre every Friday evening at 7 pm. Plenty of room for more tables and players. Call Joe for details at 330 353 0337.

    Raffle Information:

    The next raffle will be for $500.00 in cash or your choice of a field can of 30.06 or 30 Carbine ammo. Your choice. Same deal. $10.00 per ticket, only 200 tickets sold. Stop by the Clubhouse during open hours to purchase tickets.

    Dues Reminder:

    We would like to thank the over 400 members who have paid their 2024 dues. There are still over 100 members who have not yet paid. If you are one of those, you will soon lose your range and lake privileges when the gate combination is changed. You can still pay by mail or stop by the office on Sunday from noon until 2. We are not assessing any late fees.

    Range Etiquette:

    On a sad note, I was informed by one of our members that someone left about 100 shotgun hulls lying on the ground in the event range. His young son picked them up and disposed of them. Unless your mother is here with you, clean up after yourself. Also, the plastic barrels are not targets or target stands. Don’t shoot at them.

    Another incident involved someone leaning a 55-gallon drum lid against the post at one of our target boards, then shooting it full of holes and leaving it there because he was too lazy to walk out and retrieve it. What were you thinking? Do you think shooting the post did it any good? Also, every round you fired dug into the ground and could possibly have ricocheted out of the range. The target boards are set at specific heights so that bullets will impact the limestone backstop.

    Range Safety:

    Remember to sign into the logbook upon arriving at the range. If you bring a guest, they must sign in also and pay the fee upon arrival. You are responsible for the actions of your guest. Wear your white 2024 membership card. If you have questions on the safe use of the range, call 330 832-2411. I will be happy to answer your question. Frank.

    Thank you for your support.
