Trap Range Briefings
Trap Range Safety Briefings are BACK!
First and Third Saturdays of the month, at 9:00 AM. Get the safety briefing, learn how to safely use the throwers, learn the basics of shooting trap, then put that knowledge to good use by joining in a few rounds of trap with your fellow members. Bring your shotgun, bring your ammo, as well as eyes and ears.
We have TWO complete Voice Release Systems now. Setup and use is greatly simplified. Woo Hoo!!
