Lost & Found
Posted: August 3, 2017 at 7:01 pm by Nick Wagner

Did you notice something missing from your range bag recently?  Have you found something at the range recently that was from someone else’s range bag?


Really, you should, because there’s already something posted there about something someone left and someone else picked up!

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!
