Range Security

It has been reported that some members are not “spinning” the numbers on the lock after entering or leaving the range. Please take the time to spin the numbers so that unauthorized people do not have access to the range. This is a security as well as a safety matter and all members should help keep our facility safe and secure. Thanks for your cooperation and use the range often and safely.

Range Work

The work to repair the damage caused by the flooding this spring has been completed. The road and parking area have been improved and culverts have been added to help future water flow.  Anyone using the rifle range access road, please keep your vehicles on the road and do not drive across the grass. Thanks very much for your co-operation.

A range work/cleanup day will be scheduled for this fall. Details will follow as soon as the schedule is finalized so members can plan to participate in the work day. Stay tuned.

Thanks to all members for cleaning up after themselves when finished using the range. I have noticed fewer targets left up and much cleaner ranges. This simple courtesy makes it much nicer for the next member using the range.

Thanks again for everyone’s co-operation and use your range frequently and safely.

Range Rules

This is a reminder that the Range Rules state that fully automatic weapons are prohibited at the range. There are no exceptions to this rule. No member or guest, law enforcement or not, may fire a fully automatic weapon at the range at any time. The Range Rules are posted at the top of the hill as you descend into the range area and at the top of this page, 3rd item from the left. Please read them and abide by them.  Do your part to keep the range safe for you and your family. Thanks very much for your cooperation and enjoy your range.

President’s Message

I would like to extend a welcome to all members and hope you will come to the Monthly Membership Meetings and help us make JCSSA an enjoyable to place to practice our sport and get the whole family involved in the shooting sports.

JCSSA started out several decades ago by a very small group of men who just wanted a place to safely shoot. They bought the land with a small amount paid each month from each member. We have now grown to 400 members and have a lengthy waiting list for membership.

As reminder, there are some things we need to pay attention to:

  1. ALWAYS spin the numbers on the gate lock
  2. Protect the number and do not share it with anyone
  3. The full fledged member is the ONLY one who should know the number
  4. Sharing the number with non members is a serious matter and could possibly cost you a membership.
  5. With so many members we SHOULD wear our membership badges when on the range. We are hearing that non members are gaining access to the range and we need to curtail this.
  6. Safety is a primary concern at the range always practice safe gun handling and report unsafe conduct to any board member.
  7. Your elected officers are at all times interested in doing a better job. Our mission is to make JCSSA a safe enjoyable place to bring the family and enjoy the shooting sports. If we can help please contact us.

Thanks again for your membership, dedication and support to JCSSA.
