The PMSC Forum has been updated with new security measures as well as new features that make it much more user friendly.
If you are a member please use the forum as a resource to see what is happening, as well as to add suggestions to improve our club
PMSC has five available trap fields. Trap practice is on Saturdays from 10 am until 1 or 2 pm and is open to the public. Practice is held year round weather permitting (25 degrees and rising and no pouring rain). The cost is $3.50/round of 25 targets. 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 plan to have some items on the schedule such as days to pattern shotguns, perhaps beginner days, and other variations on the standard trap practice. These may include handicap, doubles or various games if there is any interest. So come out to trap practice Saturdays at 10 am and let us know your ideas. Attendance is picking up with the improved weather and we will soon open multiple traps. To hear about any upcoming trap news/events at PMSC, email Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the trap email list.
Members of Pitcairn-Monroeville can obtain keys to open traps on their own. This requires attendance at an orientation to explain the trap machines, safe operation, and payment procedures. Orientations will be held on the first Saturday of the month at 9:15 am. Please email in advance if you plan to attend. Traps 4 and 5 are available for members all year. Trap 3 is also available to members except during the trap league season (April through September). Traps 1 and 2 are reserved for scheduled events and not available for general member use. If you have trouble with one of the traps please email me at email@example.com or Rick Singer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PMSC participates in the Westmoreland Trap League starts April 12 at Shaner. If you are interested all you have to do is show up Tuesdays. It is a 50 bird 16 yard league shooting from 5pm until done and runs until the end of August. It is shot at Pitcairn-Monroeville, Shaner, Herminie and Trafford. For information about joining the league, come to a Saturday practice or email Jack at email@example.com.
The club has purchased a personal voice-release system for members to use on the skeet field. This system allows you to shoot skeet by yourself without needing someone else there to push buttons and throw targets for you. Members wishing to use this system must contact Kenny Riddile at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an orientation.
Matches are held on the last Sunday of the month rain or shine year round but always check here for the latest updates and range conditions before heading out.
Sign in begins at 10:00am and shooting starts at 11:00am. Match fees are $10 for PMSC members and $15 for non members. Setup takes place the Saturday before the match around 2:00pm and continues at 8:00am on Sunday before the match. Anyone who helps with set up or tear down can shoot the match for free and will get work-party hours if they’re a probationary member of PMSC. If you have any further questions, contact Neil Glausier at: email@example.com
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jeff Lipsitz (412-228-9189 or email@example.com). 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.
