We have had too many reports over the last few months of unsafe acts and near-misses (unintended discharges) at PCGC. As a consequence, ALL renewals will require an on-the-range safety briefing. The gate combination will not change until the beginning of August 2013 to give us time to cycle all of our members through. Please be aware, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE the new combination for the gate without recertifying at the range. Our membership has tripled since October 2012, we have many new members, and when ammo is more readily available, we will have too much opportunity for problems.
Please bear with the Officers and RSO’s who will be conducting the recerts. We will post here and by email and US mail the info needed. There will be 2 Saturdays, 2 Sundays, and the PCGC picnic (June 23) to recert.
Remember even if you pay your renewal fee, you will not get the new combination until you have the new Safety Orientation at the range.
Mac McMillian, PCGC President

If you have joined the website in the past 24 hours and are having issues logging in then please register again.
If you conduct training at PCGC, you MUST be registered with the Club as an instructor…PERIOD.
Send an email to email@example.com with your name, PCGC membership badge number, and classes that you are certified to teach.
We have an excess of instructors, and classes are beginning to interfere with “regular” club members access to ranges. Now that the PCGC membership is over 800 families, and the weather/ammo availability is getting better, conflicts will occur, and PCGC wishes to prevent conflict.
Those not registered as Instructors will NOT be using PCGC ranges for classes.
The INSTRUCTOR MUST BE A PCGC MEMBER, not a guest of a member.
Who are our PCGC Range Safety Officers?
If you are a NRA certified RSO, or a SASS Certified RSO we need to know it… Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and list yourself as a RSO and include your certification organization.
We will be conducting update training (free) for PCGC RSOs. RSOs will be conducting range safety orientations in the very near future.

Please be a good citizen, and do not track in the mud on the pistol range. Do not lay down boards or cardboard to walk out on the pistol range when it is muddy. Your poor manners (tracking mud everywhere) is causing work for others. Every time the range has to be seeded it runs $2K. This range will be beautiful once we have a few good weeks of Spring weather. If the range is muddy please use one of the other ranges at PCGC. Signs will be posted at the pistol range in the next few days.
Before leaving the range make sure to clean up after yourself. Trash such as plastic bottles, paper, and targets should be place in trash cans. Cardboard you bring to the range should leave with you and not be left in the target shed, range, or in the trash cans. Food items should not be place in trash cans but should be taken home with you to keep the animals from raiding the cans and getting trash all over the range.
