Hello Shooters,

Factoryville Sportsmen’s Club (FSC) will have its 6th year of Long Range Day (LRD) in 2018. Dates of the shoots are: April 28, May 26, June 23, July 28, Aug 25, Sept 29,

Shooting starts at 8:00 am, ends at Noon. Come earlier for setting up gear and registration, Come and leave anytime in between.

Fee: $15.00 Club Members / $20.00 Non-Members / Spectators, spotters & curious FREE

There will be 4 “sessions” of fire, with an approximate 15 minute cease fire in between to reset / paint / post targets. Session #1 8:00-8:45, Session #2 9:00-9:45, Session #3 10:00-10:45, Session #4 11:00-12:00.

Various sized Steel targets (KYL style) at multiple distances out to 427Y, shoot for fun or for score.

Bolt action, Semi auto, single shot rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, pistols. No full auto. All muzzle devices welcome. .50 cal OK, but bring your own steel or shoot paper. No steel core, armor piercing, incendiary, or tracers allowed for any caliber or gauge.

To spice up the COF, we will try to employ a 3gunish stage (long gun, pistol, shotgun) sometime this season, perhaps as early as May – the NE Pa. weather delayed the incorporation of it, it’s about 75% in place as of this posting.

For COF, scorecards, general rules, match results, and the latest and greatest info / alerts / discussions - like, join, follow on Facebook LRD group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/986239014763951/

Directions and other information available on the FSC website: http://fscweb.org/

There are 2 parking areas, due to weather and grounds conditions, the upper lot may be closed off and the lower lot may be the only parking available. We will shuttle your stuff up via UTV if need be, along with assisting anyone with physical challenges.

THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS! Hope to see you again and also to make some new friends in 2018.

Just a reminder that this Saturday, 26 May 18, we'll have our second shoot of the season, with shooting starting at 8:00am.

It appears a 3gun style stage isn't going to become a reality due to a few things.

Keep in mind that with the amount of rain we've had, there is a good possiblility that we'll have as much mud as last month, so the upper parking area next to the firing line may be closed off, leaving the bottom parking open. Will shuttle equipment with the UTV as necessary.

There's a possibility of precipitation on Saturday, so prepare for that, in the event of a washout please check the Facebook group the evening before for any cancelation. https://www.facebook.com/groups/986239014763951/

The April LRD shoot had 24 total participants, equaling 19 shooters (11 members, 8 non members) and 5 spotters / spectators. There was 1 Junior and 6 new shooters to the sport, including a woman who had never shot a rifle before that hit 5 out of 5 targets at 427yards.

Hope to see you there, if not have a safe Memorial Day and please remember what the day is for.

Hello shooters,

Just a reminder we'll have a Long Range Day shoot at Factoryville Sportsmen's Club this Saturday 23 Jun 18.

Going hot at 8:00am - Noon. It appears things have finally dried out enough to open the top parking area near the firing line.

For the latest and greatest on any changes please refer to the LRD Facebook group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/986239014763951/

There's also a bit of a survey there and located on the scorecards in order to help with getting momentum for expanding Long Range Day hours / day(s) during the week. Please give it a look if you have a moment.

The May LRD shoot had 15 total participants, breaking out to 14 shooters (7 members, 7 non members) and 1 spotter / spectator. There was 1 Junior and 3 new shooters to the event.

For Club members the Long Range portion of the FSC Club Championship will start around 10:00am, we'll have a bench reserved at that time and specially colored targets for that use.

As a pilot / trial to expand the Long Range hours, there is an additional opening of it on July 25, Aug 23, Sep 27 from 8:00 - 10:00am for club members ....a baby step but one in the right direction
