Welcome to our Club!

376877_449650928458700_1672734315_nNext Meeting: Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019

Our club meets on the second Wednesday
of each month  7:30 p.m.


Club Notes

– Finalization and training for the new Indoor Shooting Simulator should culminate soon. If you are interested in being on this committee please contact Tom Harig: harig@roadrunner.com

– The Club is very interested in developing Women’s shooting programs. Trends show that such programs should be led by  female shooting enthusiasts. If you are interested in starting such a program, and especially leading it, please contact Pat Beland, Chairman of the Board of Directors: pbeland206@aol.com

– Shooting steel targets is very popular and our club is one of the few that allow it. A committee is being formed to address club-provided steel targets. Meanwhile, please use common sense and shoot safely at steel targets. Also, DO NOT shoot at the wooden posts adjacent to the steel targets or place other targets on them. That is not their intended purpose. Meanwhile, stay tuned and perhaps come to the next club meeting where steel target shooting is always discussed. 

Engaging and interesting articles as well as news about club events are posted regularly to our  Facebook page.

Basic Pistol Safety and Training Course

Saturday Oct. 19, 2019 – 9:00am – 3:00pm

Dunham’s Bay Fish & Game Club – Ridge Rd. – Queensbury NY

Pre-registration and Pre-Payment is required

This course teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely. The all-day course includes classroom and range time learning to shoot revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. Students learn rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; actual shooting from the bench rest position, and two handed standing positions; and cleaning the pistol.

Because this is a hands-on live-fire handgun shooting course, participants must possess a New York State License to Carry Pistol. The class fee is $130. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. Seating is limited. Photographs and fingerprints are not provided in this class.

Participants will receive a certificate acknowledging their completion of a firearm safety and training course conducted by a certified firearm instructor. This is typically adequate proof of firearm training required for a non-resident firearm license in states like Arizona, Florida, Maine, and Virginia, although we do not guarantee acceptance by any particular state. It is, of course, solely the individual’s responsibility to ensure that they meet the application requirements for each license they seek.

Our Certified Firearms Instructor, Tom Harig, is a nationally known criminologist with 35+ years of professional experience. He has worked in New York State’s criminal justice agencies; has been a national trainer in numerous events for the US Department of Justice; and has been a trainer and consultant to numerous State and local criminal justice agencies across the country. He is a Certified Firearms Instructor by the National Rifle Association, and he is a Certified Concealed Firearms Instructor by the State of Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification.
