Welcome to Our Club: We appreciate the attention our members are paying to being safe on the range, both with firearms (as always) and with COVID-19 practices. We are currently not holding monthly meetings but will notify the membership via email about meeting status.  

The latest from the club…

Guest Policy:
Guests are now welcome at the club. Please be safe and follow social distancing guidelines.

Club Hours:
Typically, the range closes at one half hour before sunset each day. However, as fall progresses and sunset occurs sooner each day, the range remains open until sunset through the big game hunting seasons. This gives hunters a little more daylight to sight in their hunting rifles and pattern their shotguns.

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


Turkey Hunting Shotgun Patterning Session

When: Thursday, April 15, 2021 – 5pm to 7pm

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!!

Spring turkey season is coming and it’s important to get those turkey shotguns patterned, especially with the youth turkey hunting weekend just ahead. During the above hours the rifle range will be exclusively set aside for the purpose of patterning a shotgun. This involves firing one shot, then going downrange to examine and exchange your target. Then it’s back to firing line and the process is repeated until you are satisfied with your results. Safety is the priority so each round will be coordinated and all shooters will go down-range at the same time.

What to bring: Turkey hunting shotgun, ammo, eye and ear protection. Dunhams Bay will provide targets and backdrops but please bring extras if you have them. A target stand, cardboard/newspaper (pizza boxes work great) are suggested, but not necessary.

Let’s have some fun getting ready for turkey season! 

NOTE: The rifle range will not closed at this time, but please expect interruptions from turkey gunners.  


Statement from NYSRPA on being de-platformed from social media


Fellow Gun Owners,
The NYSRPA is happy to announce a new email alert list that will bring you the latest information regarding your Second Amendment rights as well as any other pertinent information of interest to our community.
The email alert system has evolved out of necessity. The social media giants who control the platforms familiar to all of us have chosen to declare that my Facebook page as well as Carl Gottstein’s does not conform to their community standards; therefore they de- platformed both of us. More importantly this loss of our personal accounts makes it impossible for either of us to post on the NYSRPA Facebook page, essentially muzzling our voices of reason during these turbulent time.
Because of these draconian moves of the social media censors we decided to go old school. We are going to use the resources we control like our website, podcasts and this alert list. We are also experimenting with the social media newcomer MeWe please check us out on that site.
Finally, Please pass this email to all your friends and contacts. Help us help you with all of the latest information in our world. Visit our website to either sign up or see the latest court cases. Most of all don’t give up the fight we can win if we all pull together
Sincerely,
Tom King
Cogito ergo armatum sum

Let’s shoot some steel!

If you’ve visited the rifle range in the past few months, you’ll notice we have steel targets for your shooting pleasure. This comes as the direct request of many members. Here are a few notes about shooting steel.

•Please use the club’s steel as opposed to bringing your own.
•Stay in the shooting/bench area directly in front of the steel targets. Do not shoot at them from off angles
•Shoot only pistol and .22 rimfire rifle at the 25 yard steel targets.
•When you leave, please pull the ropes on the 25-yard targets out of the snow. Just tie them to the benches (see photos, below).
•Have fun and shoot safely.

The Warren County Pistol License Safety Class (www.safet-course.com)
As we enter the New Year we would like to provide you with our 2020 Schedule of Classes and invite you to encourage family and friends to obtain their New York State Pistol License.About Us
Southern Adirondack Firearms Education and Training, Inc. (SAFE-T, Inc.) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation created solely for thepurpose of providing firearm safety instruction to local applicants for a New York State pistol license. That’s all we do. We have been the premier provider of pistol safety instruction in Warren County since 1975. That’s 45+ years of training over 8,000 applicants… and counting! We must be doing something right…

Our Program
Warren County requires that you complete a pistol safety course before a license can be issued. Our course, developed with Judge John G. Dier in 1975, continued with Judge G. Thomas Moynihan, and currently approved and accepted by Judge John S. Hall, satisfies that requirement. At the present time, our class is limited to only Warren County license applicants.

What We Do
We will provide you with the basic safety course that Warren County requires to get your New York State pistol license. We teach about state and local laws and permit holder’s responsibilities, the various types of handguns and ammunition you may encounter, safe handling of handguns, cleaning of firearms, and home firearm safety. Our class includes personalized hands-on instruction from our cadre of 20+ of the most experienced firearm instructors in the region. You won’t find a more qualified group of instructors!

What We Charge
Unlike commercial businesses that offer pistol license training, we are not in this to make money. Our fee simply covers our expenses. We charge $35 per person to take our class. That’s all!

What You Get
Your $35 fee allows you to attend our class and get a certificate of completion. We will notify the Warren County Pistol Permit Bureau that you have completed the training requirement. We will provide you with a copy of the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting book, a $35 value, as well as safety publications and materials from various sources. We will work to help you succeed! Our class is generally accepted by the County for a period of three years after completion. However, we strongly encourage participants to follow through with their pistol license application in a timely manner.

How to Register for Class
We require pre-registration and pre-payment for our classes. On-line registration is available at www.safet-course.com. The class fee of $35 must be paid upon registration. Our website uses PayPal to process payments and most major credit cards are accepted. (You do not need a PayPal account to pay with a credit card, just follow the online instructions). Classes are limited to 25 people on a “firstcome-first served” basis so early registration is strongly encouraged. If you register and are unable to attend, you must notify us at least 24 hours before the scheduled class. Fees are non-refundable, but we will attempt to place you in an upcoming class on a space- available basis. Please note that a Photo ID is required for entrance into class.

Online registration is really the way to go! But for those without online access we can accept class registrations by US Mail. Using this method, we can’t guarantee your choice date, but we’ll try. Send us your payment of $35 by personal check or US Postal Money Order (no cash!). Payment must be received at least one week before class. Be sure to include:
