RSO Class – September 30, 2017
Posted: September 15, 2017 at 12:52 pm by Nick Wagner

The Range Safety Officer (RSO) is a person who chooses to give to others an opportunity to practice their firearm skills in a safe and helpful environment. This course is designed to prepare experienced shooters for the basic duties of a RSO, including: roles and responsibilities, range standard operating procedures, range inspection and range rules, how to respond to firearm stoppages and malfunctions, and how to take immediate action when circumstances require. Weather permitting, we will demonstrate and practice these skills on the range, so please bring your pistol and 50 rounds of ammunition. Individuals who successfully complete the course will receive certification as NRA Range Safety Officers.

Lunch will be provided.

Contact Steve, or call (269) 352-1052, to sign up for the class.

Volunteers Needed for the Ladies SIG Shoots
Posted: July 19, 2017 at 6:10 pm by Nick Wagner

Our Ladies’ Day shoots are becoming quite popular, enough so that I need to set up RSOs for the rest of the summer. Though we are in the pit, we do not need to have pit RSOs because we are not doing live action shooting.  We have both complete beginners, and those who have recently gotten their feet wet. So you may have to help teach a lady the basics of firearm safety.

To retain our return shooters, I need to make sure we have something interesting for them to do each month.  To do that, we need at least 6-8 RSOs on the 4th Saturday of each month. Our scheduled shoots for the rest of the summer are: July 22, August 26, September 23, and October 28.

Please email me smgcwomen@gmail.com to volunteer. Help us get more women interested in the shooting sports!

If you see errors or things that look bizarre, please contact me with a detailed description of what section of the forums and where on the layout you saw the issue.
