2022 Gun Raffle

This year’s raffle includes two great guns that will be awarded. 

 

  • First prize is a Korean era M1 Garand, assembled from unissued military parts by the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) in 2014. A limited number of Special Edition rifles were built with a new CMP stock to make up a brand-new rifle using original 70-year-old parts. General George S Patton said the M-1 Garand was “the greatest battle implement ever devised”. The rifle comes with many accessories, ammunition, and clips.

 

  • Second prize is a new in a hard case Benelli Super 90 Montefeltro 20 ga. Semi-Auto shotgun. The gun features the fine walnut. Crio® System, Benelli cryogenically treated barrel and choke tubes to increase pattern density.  The Inertia-Driven® System shotgun is clean, reliable, and adjustment-free.

Tickets will be available soon

News

  • The MI DNR/USF&WS grant has been awarded to construct a 5 Stand Sporting clays course with most going to the purchase of 5 additional traps. 

         

   The course will be set up between the two trap ranges and will offer an excellent training ground for bird hunters, with 7 traps total throwing different combinations of many different shots a shotgunner experiences in hunting different game birds. For instance, some targets are thrown away from the shooter, some are incoming, and some fly side to side, high and low, and “rabbit” targets that roll along the ground on their edge. The completion of this course is expected to take place this spring with all volunteer work, so please consider helping when asked to keep this club a diverse and growing entity. A good review of this sport is found here:

Damage Caused by Steel Core Ammo

 

The club decided to ban the use of armor-piercing and steel core ammunition at the range. 

There is just no need to shoot this ammunition at the range and so only standard ammo is allowed. 

Our AR500 steel targets have already sustained damage and as we add resettable steel targets, steel core ammunition can quickly make them inoperable and not repairable. 

If you are unsure of your ammo, just use a magnet to check the bullets. 

We also updated the SRSC General Range Rules to address this issue for the future.
