March Archery

On 3/13/2015 the Wyoming Antelope Club was honored to host an archery fun shoot for Dr. Jeff Sourbeer of Turley Family Health Center and the group of interns. Archery Discipline Leaders Dave Fessenden and Rick Clemens oversaw the shoot and assisted with advice and instructions in the archery discipline and were very pleased to see the amount of interest shown in the sport that they hold dear to them.

We hope they will come join us again soon

GS Custom moves to bigger facility

GS Custom Guns & Ammo, owned and operated by Gary Skiba – a long time member and sponsor of WAC – has recently expanded his operation. The facility has grown from 1,200 sq. ft. to over 6,000 sq. ft. and has greatly increased production capacity. Established in 1992, it is located at the same street address in a business complex, but 150 feet from its old location. It is like moving in the same hotel to a bigger, better room. It is located directly behind the 7­Eleven store on the corner of 66th Street N and 118 St. just south of Ulmerton Road.

The updated GS Custom website, gscustomammo.com, describes all of the products and services offered including remanufactured ammo, custom firearms, gunsmithing, NRA certified instruction, consignment gun sales, and FFL transfers. There is a virtual tour on the website as well as web exclusive special promotions.

GS Custom continues to offer significant discounts to WAC competitive shooters. Stop in for a real tour and to discuss your firearms related needs.

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
