We have multiple closures for maintenance coming up over the next week. Please check the club website for updates before coming to the club to shoot.
Updates will be posted on this page as each maintenance item is completed and the club is re-opened. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to make sure the club is in top condition for your shooting pleasure.
Greetings WSC Members! Everything is going well at the club. We hope you’ve been by recently to shoot. We have several exciting updates for you in the way of events and training.
Our next member event – Girls Night Out will be held Thursday May 28th 6-9 PM. All who attended our March St. Patrick’s Day party know that the member events are a great time! This event will feature shooting and safety instruction geared towards our female members. We’ll have a fun range competition with prizes followed by drinks and food in the lounge. Don’t miss out – space is limited. $40 per person. Click here to RSVP
We have been doing significant work on our Weston Shooters Academy training classes and schedule. We now have an extensive schedule of six different classes, including four brand new offerings that members have been asking for. Our available classes are:
Full descriptions are available on the website via the link below. Our instructors are also available for private lessons if you’d like to work on a particular skill or technique. Please check out the new classes and schedule online, or call Lisa at the Academy directly at 508.808.3532.
We are excited to let you know that our FFL Services are up and running. If you’d like to have a firearm shipped to us for transfer, please call the club or send us an email. Once we give you the OK, have the shipping dealer contact us so we can send them a copy of our FFL. Transfers will be handled by appointment at the club. The fee for transfers is $25.00.
As you may know, ammo is now available for sale at the club. Forms are available in the lounge and locker room that you can fill out and we will deliver to your locker. If you don’t have a locker, we’ll set an appointment for pickup. It is our goal to provide you with unrivaled convenience by having ammo available at the Club. We have set our prices to be competitive with other local shops, and would love to earn your ammo business!
The club has been getting some additional publicity in the past few months. Most recently, Victor, Leo and Becca were featured prominently in a story in the Globe on Monday detailing an uptick in gun permits issued last year. A lot of the increase has to do with the licensing law changes, but WSC was showcased as an example of more people taking interest in the sport of shooting. The article is featured on our Facebook page.
Regarding access to the club – all members are reminded that nobody should be let into the club unless they have a working access card or are guests being escorted by a member. Members having trouble with their access card should call the club phone number (508.343.8972) or email us to set an appointment to fix the card. If someone shows up and wants to see the club, please politely refer them to the website where they can submit a contact request, or they may call the club to schedule a tour. Please do not let anyone in to let them look around.
Lastly, just a friendly reminder to please make sure to sweep up all brass located on the tile when finished shooting. You can leave all brass forward of the firing line in place. While the vast majority of members clean up after themselves, some have forgotten to do so. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping the range a safe and clean place to shoot.
Thank you and safe shooting!
We have a number of updates for you below:
Ammo Now Available
Our first ammo shipment has arrived! We have 9, 38, 40, 45, 223 (not for use at the club), and some 22 available. We are still working on supply for some of the more exotic calibers. The vending machine is fully stocked, and we will be contacting everyone who previously placed orders to arrange locker delivery or pickup. Please keep WSC in mind for your ammo purchases. Our prices are competitive with the local gun shops.
Range Safety Briefings
We have appointed Ralph Bibbo as Chief Range Officer. Ralph will be available at the club periodically to assist members. He will also be scheduling and conducting a series of safety briefings. These will be scheduled for Saturdays in January and February. Due to several instances of gun handling issues, rifle and shotgun shooting, and other rules violations, we are going to require that all members attend one of these safety briefings. By the end of February, any member who has not attended a briefing will have their access to the club temporarily suspended until they attend. We feel that this is in the best interests of all members and the Club, and we appreciate your cooperation. Exact schedule will be available later this week on the events page on the website.
Going into 2015, we have made several changes to the membership structure of the club. We have removed the Gold membership package, and we have increased the annual dues for Platinum and Founder members to $500. Any new member who has applied in 2014 will have until the end of January to complete the membership process with the 2014 packages and pricing. Additionally, all current members of the club as of January 1 will renew in 2015 at current pricing.
If you haven’t completed the membership process yet, please visit the link below to book a New Member Meeting appointment. There are a number of dates available in January.
We have some great Weston Shooters Club clothing available for the cold months… gray and white long sleeve t-shirts and black quarter zip sweatshirts are available for purchase at the club. If you are interested, please email or call. We can place them in your locker or arrange for pickup.
Please remember to clean up your shooting station when finished. Police brass located in the tiled area. Any brass in front of the firing line should be left – for safety reasons, members are not allowed down range. Please discard used targets, ammo boxes, staples, etc and leave the range clean. Management and your fellow members appreciate it.
We thank you for joining Weston Shooters Club! We appreciate your support in 2014, and look forward to 2015 being a great year for WSC. We wish you all a safe and prosperous new year (with plenty of trigger time)!
We have a lot of updates for you today.
Ammo is now available for ordering at the club. We have partnered with a commercial supplier and will have ammo in stock very soon. Ammo will be available to you in three ways:
Place orders via the link you received in your email.
We’ve had great feedback from our Basic Firearms Safety and Basic Wound Management class attendees. If you have friends or family looking to get started shooting and possibly apply for their licenses, the BFS class is a great way to start. It covers everything needed to get your license, and includes live fire range time. The Basic Wound Management class teaches the skills necessary to treat penetrating wounds until emergency services arrive. Full class descriptions and schedules are available on the website:
We are still accepting applications. We have four new member meeting dates scheduled between now and the end of January, including Saturday, January 10th for new members that have trouble making the evening meetings. If you have applied for membership, but have not attended a new member meeting, or if you need to pick up your access card, please sign up on the website to attend an upcoming meeting:
We have posted new rules signs in the clubhouse and range. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the basic rules upon your next visit to the club. Please take special care to note the rules regarding firearms handling. We’ve had a number of instances of members handling firearms in the clubhouse in the past few weeks. Loaded firearms may only be handled on the firing line. Unloaded firearms may be handled at the gun cleaning table upstairs or in the conference room. No ammo is allowed in these areas while handling firearms. Firearms must be cased or holstered and concealed in the clubhouse and when going to/from the locker room and range.
We are continuing to work on the range. We anticipate that the bench will be installed behind the firing line in the next week or two. We are also still waiting on completion of a new gas main that goes through the building and out to Route 20. Once this is complete, we will have heat in the range. We apologize for the delays on this – we’re doing our best to complete this project despite problems and delays that have been out of our control.
Thank you and happy shooting!
We have exciting news to share! Weston Shooters Club is now able to offer concierge ammo service to our members! We have established a factory-direct relationship allowing us to obtain a virtually unlimited supply of high-quality ammunition. Ammo will be priced competitively with local retailers, but we plan to offer you an added level of service and convenience.
Ammo will be available to you, our valued members, in three ways:
With these convenient ways to purchase ammo at competitive prices, our goal is to become your “one stop shop” for shooting and ammo purchases. Please keep in mind this is virtually the only source of income for the club outside of membership. The more ammo we can supply the fewer members we will have to allow in to keep the bills paid. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this service.
If you placed a pre-order at a new member meeting, we’d still like you to order now so that we know you’re still interested. Complete pricing is available at the link you received in your email. If you’re interested in any caliber that isn’t mentioned above, please contact us. The initial order will be placed later this week, so please act now!
Thank you for your support of Weston Shooters Club!
Thanks to everyone who attended Bill’s Basic Wound Management class this weekend! Due to high demand, Bill has added an additional class Sunday 11/23 at 10:00 am. He promises to have you home in time for the 1:00 Patriots kickoff.
Please register on the training page.
We wanted to share a new training class that the club will have available – Basic Wound Management. This class is being taught by Bill Carlo, an Iraq War Veteran and Massachusetts EMT.
This class will teach you the basic skills to treat penetrating wounds until Emergency services arrive. and will cover:
The class is approximately two hours long consisting of video instruction and hands on training. Instructions will be provided for self-aid as well as the aid of others. Some of the videos in the class do contain graphic images.
Medical kits have been placed at the Shooters club in case of emergency. Individual kits will be available for purchase from the Weston Shooters Club.
The first class is this Saturday 11/15 from 3-5pm. If you’d like to register for this class, please visit the training page.
Please note that the range will be closed on Tuesday 11/11 through Friday 11/14 between the hours of 6:00am and 3:00pm so that we can complete some ventilation and soundproofing work in and above the range. The range will be open after 3:00pm on those days. Thank you!
We have made the determination to open the range on Tuesday morning at 9:00. The ventilation in the range is now working, but the automatic on/off feature still needs some work on Monday. Additionally, at some point later next week, the range will be closed for half of a day while additional speed controls are added to the ventilation system. Presently, there is too much air flowing and we need to get everything balanced out.
Please check the website to make sure the range is open before making the trip to the club.
