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:
- Basic Firearms Safety
- Semi-Automatic Pistols: Beyond the Basics
- Ruger 10/22 Rifle: Beyond the Basics
- Your Glock: Beyond the Basics
- Basic Wound Management
- Introduction to the AR-15
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!
