The next Workday is Saturday November 30th. Work will begin at 9AM. As always, all ranges will remain CLOSED until work is completed. We will be replacing target boards, removing trash and debris, and getting the Club ready for winter. There are several dead trees to be removed, for which we need chainsaws. Pistol berms need to be trimmed, requiring brush blades and string trimmers. The back wall in the Utility pit will be rebuilt. We need shovels, rakes and wheelbarrows.Workdays are always held on the 5th Saturday of the month if there are 5 Saturdays in the month. This generally works out to 4 workdays per year. Members should try to participate in at least one workday each year.

There has also been a change in the intersection of the main driveway and the drive to the “Bullet Side” of the Club. Instead of a traffic triangle, the wider roads now come together in a “T”.
Safety is our number one concern. This is your club. Use it and enjoy it. Do your part to serve it. If you are the last person to leave the Club, or think you might be, please take the time to drive to each range to check, then lock the gate on your way out.

44 states have constitutional provisions protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
More than half of the states have enacted a Castle Doctrine law that protects the right to self-defense, including deadly force, anywhere a person has a legal right to be.
A historic grassroots effort by voters in Colorado’s Senate Districts 11 and 3 has resulted in the recall of Colorado Senate President John Morse (D) and Senator Angela Giron (D). The people of Colorado Springs and Pueblo sent a clear message to their elected officials that their primary job is to defend our rights and freedoms and that they are accountable to their constituents – not the dollars or social engineering agendas of anti-gun billionaires.
FAIRFAX, Va. – PoliceOne.com released today the results of an extensive survey of about 15,000 active and retired law enforcement officers of all ranks and from departments ranging in size from less than 25 to more than 1,000.
These results strongly show that law enforcement officers do not support President Obama’s gun control agenda. They do, however, strongly support the Right-to-Carry by law-abiding Americans. The survey respondents are united in their desire for politicians to focus on keeping firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill and to reject unconstitutional gun control measures that infringe on Second Amendment rights.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. Four million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
NRA Response to Mr. Obama's Gun Control Proposals
its history, the National Rifle Association has led efforts to promote
safety and responsible gun ownership. Keeping our children and society
safe remains our top priority.
The NRA will continue to focus on keeping our children safe and securing our schools, fixing our broken mental health system, and prosecuting violent criminals to the fullest extent of the law. We look forward to working with Congress on a bi-partisan basis to find real solutions to protecting America's most valuable asset — our children.
Attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy.
