We are really pleased to have Randy Cain of Cumberland Tactics returning to HTC in March to teach another 3 day Tactical Handgun 101 course.

March 10-12. If you or someone you know has never taken a formal class teaching the fundamentals of shooting a handgun, Randy is considered by many to be one of the finest instructors in the US.

You can reserve your place in this class by using this link to his website.

Most of you have noticed by now the clocks have changed and it is now getting darker in the afternoons. If this isn’t bad enough, our days are getting increasingly shorter so we have changed our hours to the following effective immediately.

M-Su  8:00am-4:30pm
Last Check-in at 3:45pm

Now some of you might be sad to see this however there is light at the end of the tunnel.

NIGHT SHOOTS

Yes that is correct. All you instructors and other qualified organizations may now book ranges for evenings. BYOL. (bring your own lights) .

That’s right. Those of you who have succumbed to the marketing glut of tactical flashlights out there may now bring them out for a bone fide night shoot to see if you are able to see anything when things get real.

Ask your favorite instructor or coordinator to book a range for a night shoot.

A few policy announcements

Posted on Leave a comment

We recently updated our range policy to reflect necessary changes in our operations to increase safety for our staff and customers customers visiting our facility. These changes were made necessary after our staff have discovered repeated instances that now warrant restrictions on our customers activities.

Here is a run down of the highlights:

1) Exploding targets on the public ranges are discontinued.

2) We are going to charge you a repair fee for negligently or deliberately damaging range equipment and props. This includes shooting target stands, shooting steel targets with rounds that damage the targets, Bianchi barricades and other wood barriers designed as shooting positions that were being used to conceal targets. Wear and tear is one thing. We have a pattern that indicates gross negligence. One good thing, we will be happy to store your new props.

3) We are restricting shot angles on the Action shooting bays (with wood walls) to disallow any shots at angles greater than 30 degrees. These ranges are not intended to be 270 degree bays. Shots directly into the walls at close distance produces spall that returns uprange and other potential safety hazards.  We have created a template for shooters to gauge whether they are OK. It can be obtained from the range office.
