Black Powder December Update

The black powder shooters recently held their monthly shoot at the Bullseye range. Since it is still muzzleloader season, many regular shooters were out of town on hunting trips which resulted in fewer shooters than normal. Since we always have a relaxed, fun shoot with no time limits it made for fun shooting with some decent scores posted. Recently we have had 2 new shooters join us, Pat Rogers and Joe Chrin and both seemed to enjoy the shooting and the assistance rendered by more experienced shooters. Please feel free to join us on the the 4th Sunday of the Month, which this December will be on the 28th. Even if you have limited or no experience with black powder shooting, you will find our event and enjoyable way to participate in this sometimes challenging discipline. We have some fun events planned for the future, such as our springtime “rendezvous” which has lots of fun targets and prizes so come join the fun.

Range officer schedule changes

We had to take this measure to keep people of the internet from randomly signing up for duties. If you do not have a log in, simply create one and we will approve it to get you going. Thanks for understanding!

Sept Black Powder Match

We held our monthly match on 9/28/2014 and despite the recent heavy rains that resulted in high humidity making the shooting a little uncomfortable, muddy and may have limited turnout, another great shoot was held. This month’s match was won by Bill Forshay with a score of 230 out of 250, followed by Dave Crede at 200 and Rick Crede at 184.

Come join the Wyoming Antelope Club black powder shooters for fun, competition and a chance to learn more about this entertaining and challenging discipline. We meet the 4th at 8:30 AM on the Bullseye Range. We have a 30 minute session prior to the start of our matches to practice, adjust sights and generally “warm-up”. This is a relaxed, informal match, with emphasis on safe shooting with plenty of good competition. We welcome new shooters, or even those who don’t have a black powder rifle but are interesting in learning about this type of shooting. There are no time limits so if you need a little help, there are always plenty of experienced shooters willing and able to help you out with any problems. Many shooters have an old CVA, Thompson Center or similar rifle that they may have played with at one time but now sits unused on the rack. Well, dust her off, (the gun that is) and bring her out to join us for a good time. We fire at a variety of targets every month, from double bullseye buffalos to the ever challenging inverted “V” which will test your confidence in your shooting.

Click and Bang, the Art of the Deal in Online Firearm Sales

It’s no secret that the internet has changed how we buy things, from books and music to food and commodities. Nowhere is this more true than in firearm sales. I remember buying guns back in the mid 90s, when I was old enough to buy a long gun on my own and would make the trek to the local gun store (or Walmart!), pick out the one I wanted and would have something fun to go shoot with.  There was very little store to store comparison, no internet full of fan boys and armchair snipers with videos talking about the pros and cons of each platform or pricing engines that ensured you always found the best deal. Along with it, I had never heard of an FFL transfer until I had to do one in the early 2000s from a little known company I found on the internet named Bud’s. Continue reading
