NSC Dirt Update

NSC received 83 truck loads of FREE dirt this week that will finish new pistol range that will be designated Range # 2 when finished early June. Additional berm work to improve safety on range # 2 100 yard berm for Action Pistol Range and right side of the Police Range. The remaining piles of dirt will be stored for future re-furbishing exisiting berms.

Range # 2 and Range # 4 update

While dismantling the 50 yard roof, the roof fell on the bench tables and crushed the tops and block. Their was a nest of snakes living in the concrete block so the rest block was removed. Sorry for the mishap and loss of Range # 4 - 50 yard benches, the benches will be rebuilt early May. The 100 yard range is fine and those members needing a 50 yard range can use Range # 2.

Range # 2 - 100 yard berm is target frame is down and will be erected soon, the 25 and 50 yard berms on Range # 2 are open for shooting.
