Steel Target Repair Station

As promised we have installed a steel target repair station by shooting bench 10. The ammo box has tools and hardware. There are long and short straps hanging on the roof supports. The ammo box can be lifted off of the bench so it can be carried down to the targets. Everyone now has the means to repair the steel targets. Please repair anything that you shoot up.

Range Mowing Schedule

The task of mowing grass at the club has always been somewhat loosely scheduled. Our mowing crew has always been made up of member volunteers and they worked when they were available.

The members that make up the current mowing crew have been able to establish a pretty predictable schedule this year and want to share it so it's less likely that you will show up to shoot and find the mowers working.

Keep in mind that the schedule may be changed due to the weather.

Wednesday Afternoon:

- Pistol Range

- 50 Yard Range

- 100 Yard Range

- Trap Field 

Friday Morning:

2018, 33rd Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference

If you are interested being one of the movers and shakers of Second Amendment rights in Illinois and the nation this is where you want to be. The Second Amendment Foundation sponsors this event each year. This year it's being held at The Hyatt Regency O’Hare on September 21, 22, & 23rd in Chicago.

Legislative Update HB4855

"Soon, the first of the 10-year FOID cards will start renewing and this is likely to swamp the Illinois State Police (ISP).  With that in mind, on August 17th, Governor Rauner signed HB 4855 into law.  HB 4855 allows gun owners a 60-day grace period to keep their FOID card active while their renewal application is being processed, even if the processing period extends beyond the FOID card’s expiration date.  Your renewal should not be submitted more than 60 days before your expiration date.  This new law also clarifies the definition of a patient so hospitals have a better idea of how to report the status of a patient to the ISP.  For years, the ISRA has had to deal with cases in which people who were admitted to a hospital were put into an empty mental ward because the ward they should have been admitted to was filled.  These were usually people who should have been placed in either a medical ward or maternity ward.  Because they were in a mental facility, they lost their FOID card.  It takes years to straighten these cases out.  Meanwhile, the person is denied their rights.  Hospitals were not helpful."

New Camera System

The club's security camera system has been upgraded with new HD cameras and recorder. An additional upgrade to the new system is the ability for the club's elected and appointed officers to access the live camera feeds and playback search function without having to physically be at the club. 

So there is no confusion, this means that while you are at the club it is possible that you could be viewed by a club officer if one happens to be accessing a live camera feed while you are there. This is not meant to be intimidating, just think of it as having a remote officer on duty at any given time.
