Two More Youth Shooters Achieve A Major Accomplishment!!

At the June 2017 General Membership meeting, two more fine young gentlemen were recognized for achieving a major accomplishment. Greg and Daniel Gauntlet, after a lot of hard work and perseverance, both met all of the qualification requirements for NRA / Winchester Smallbore Distinguished Expert, the highest qualification one can achieve.

The young men were recognized at the LPRGC General Membership Meeting by Jim Bartlett (Junior Rifle Coach) and their awards presented to them by Bill Cassidy (President, LPRGC).

Big congratulations to both of these guys on making Distinguished Expert and being an example to the rest of the Smallbore shooters both young and old alike.

 


The Rifle Brass Has Been Sorted!!

A huge thank you to those that came out to help sort all of the brass that had been collected from the 100yd range for awhile now.  We had about 6-7 people show up with their sorting hats on and ready to sort through about six 5-gallon buckets full of brass…..by Hand!  

There were some tasty meatball sandwiches for the crew to eat and beer (“real” and the “root” variety) to quench our thirst.  The amount of brass sorted was huge.  After the sorting process, the brass was measured and bagged for sale …… All of the proceeds will be donated to the Youth Rifle Program

Below are the end result from the sorting, bagging and pricing process.  

Please remember that all of the money raised from the sale of this rifle brass will be given to the LPRGC Youth Rifle Program to help meet the needs of the program and the kids involved….which is always a worthy cause to support!

Revere’s Riders Class (Basic Rifle)

The first Revere’s Riders class has come to an end and as expected, it was a great time.  A big Thank You goes out to all of the Instructors who taught and assisted students with the class.  From facilitating the class, providing range commands, helping students with problem areas, providing a great history lesson, explaining the intricacies when sighting in a rifle for those not as experienced, to making sure the teaching environment was kept safe for all students, the Instructors made it all possible!!
Here are some pictures from the class:
