Entrance Gate:

Spring, summer, and even winter storms can disrupt electricity at the gate and the club in general.  The gate is on a different line from West Penn Power than the rest of the club.  Please listen for beeps and LED indication when you enter your gate number to let you know that the gate has electricity.

Please do not try to fix it yourself if you think that there is a problem with the gate.  There is a phone number posted at the gate to use for gate emergencies.

​And please remember to WAIT until the gate closes completely after entering and leaving through the gate.

​​

Range Sign In Sheets:

It has come to our attention that some members are not using the Sign in Sheets at the ranges.  Failure to do so will result in members being banned from the club.

Membership to the NRA:

It has come to our attention that some club members are NOT renewing their membership to the NRA.  If your membership to the NRA has expired or is due to expire, you will be receiving an email from us reminding you to rejoin.

You can renew or join online by following this link.

From the EMSC application for membership:

"YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE NRA TO JOIN EMSC AND CONTINUE TO BE A MEMBER OF THE NRA TO REMAIN IN GOOD STANDING AS A MEMBER OF EMSC."

Ranges:

On the Pistol Range, please try to shoot into the Gravel Bunkers instead of hitting the grass.  The Gravel Bunkers to the right of Rifle Range are to be reserved for the NRA Silhouette Shoots that take place every third Saturday during the summer months.

The Gravel Road going out to the rifle targets was made possible in part via a Grant that the club received from the NRA.  When looking at the sliding pictures above, the newest pictures appear first followed by the older ones.  You can see what the ranges looked like before and after all of the recent improvements. 

​Members Personal Information:
