Indoor Range 04-26-2013
Please use the green dud box for duds only. There were many shells with just primers installed. Also in the coming weeks on the tables will be .38ís .40ís and .45 caliber rounds and casing in plastic bags for anyone who wishes to use them or reload them. These should be good for members who reload.
Good shooting to all members.
The indoor range has 8 ports for your shooting pleasure. The door from outside to the indoor range now has a card reader, and gives you 24-hour access to the range.
The range has been sound-proofed, and new lighting has been added. A target auto-return system has been added to three of the ports.
The range is normally closed on Monday for the pistol league from October until March. The rest of the year they also practice on Monday night at 7:30 p.m., and request that if you come down on a Monday night, you limit your shooting to .22 caliber only.
Interested in pistol
marksmanship? Have you heard about or tried bullseye pistol shooting (http://www.bullseyepistol.com/)?
Itís a fun competitive individual and team sport.
Matches can include centerfire and/or rimfire pistols, and typically
involves three different courses of shooting fired off-hand from 50 feet:
slow fire (10 shots in 10 minutes), timed fire (10 shots in 40 seconds),
and rapid fire (10 shots in 20 seconds).
The Andover Sportsmenís Club (ASC) has two bullseye pistol teams (Grizzlys and Kodiaks) in the Merrimack Valley Pistol League (MVPL), which includes about 20 local teams from clubs in Tewksbury, Billerica, Lowell, and Dracut. In the MVPL, a rimfire only league, each team has up to 12 shooters on their rosters. In a match, the top 5 individual scores for each team count toward the team total. Presently, the ASC teams practice and compete on Monday evenings. The season runs from October until March. We are always looking for new shooters (beginners to experts). If you would like more information, please feel free to contact one of the captains: Mike Patane (email@example.com), or George Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org).
