Trap orientations are still held on the first Saturday of each month. Starting with November's orientation, a $3 charge will be introduced to cover the cost of making the trap keys that are given out following the orientation. As always, contact Don Newton at email@example.com prior to attending an orientation.
Participation on the Trap Team in the Tuesday night league has been great this year. From not having enough people show up to compete last year to 21 shooters this year, we climbed our way up from fourth to third place for the first time in seven years. Many of our team had not shot in a league before and some are quite new to trap. With a little more practice we can aim higher next year. The post-season shoot will be at PMSC on September 15, 2013 with sign up from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This event is league members only, but you can come out to see some good shooting and cheer us on. Food will be available. We welcome new additions to the trap team for next year.
Lipstick and Lead is a BRAND NEW ladies group established by women for women and is intended to introduce the prettier of the genders to the world of personal protection and shooting sports. Activities are designed to meet new and beginning shooters at their current skill level, and to equip them with solid fundamentals to build on in a non-intimidating and fun environment. Lipstick and Lead will provide the experienced shooter with opportunities for continued development, and will encourage them to use their experience in a peer mentorship with a new shooter.
PMSC has some of the best trap facilities in the area including a new shelter between Traps 2 and 3. Trap participation is growing, so come out and join us. Trap practice is at 10am Saturday (weather permitting) and is open to the public. These practices are low-key, and all shooters from beginners to the experienced are welcome. All you need is a shotgun (modified or full choke recommended), shells with 7-1/2 or 8 shot, and eye/ear protection. If you don't have a shotgun, bring some factory shells (12 gauge, 7-1/2 or 8 shot) and someone will loan you a gun or you can use a club gun (small cleaning fee). We also participate in the Tuesday evening Westmoreland Trap League with Trafford, Shaner, and Herminie which lasts for twenty weeks through the summer. PMSC permits members who have had an orientation from the Trap Commander to open a trap field for practice any day from 9am to 9pm, except for special event conflicts. Trap orientation is held at 9:15am on the first Saturday of the month (email Don at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance if you plan to attend an orientation).
There will be no orientation on Thursday, July 4th.
To use the indoor pistol range you must first take an orientation class offered by either Steve Davidson (412-720-7609 or email@example.com) or Jeff Lipsitz (412-228-9189 or firstname.lastname@example.org). These brief courses are offered on the first and third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. by Steve Davidson by appointment only and on the first and third Saturday of each month at noon by Jeff Lipsitz by appointment only. After you take the orientation class your access card will be coded into the reader for the indoor range. If you have any questions or encounter any problems on the indoor pistol range contact Steve.
It's starting to warm up and the daylight is lasting longer, so I wanted to remind everyone that skeet night is every Thursday night 6:30pm-9pm on the skeet field (weather permitting). You'll need your own ammo (#7.5 shot or smaller). If you don't have your own shotgun, there's usually someone willing to share a gun with a first-timer, and the club also has 12ga shotguns available in exchange for a small cleaning fee (only factory ammo allowed in club guns). The cost is $3.50 per round. Also, if you're a member who would like to be able to shoot skeet at your convenience, come on a Thursday night, and I will give you a short orientation on the operation of the skeet field. For more information, contact Kenny Riddile at email@example.com
