My local clubs Rifle and pistol range have been quiet since all the B. S. started. I believe we should continue to shoot,continue to get more people involved,including women and kids. Let them know we are still here and will continue to practice our sport even through this storm. take someone new shooting beni

Our club has picked up more members. People are coming out of everywhere to shoot their new guns. We are a small club and are reaching the top number that should be allowed to be members. Over the last couple of years we have increased from under 600 to over 700. The number jumped a lot recently.

A larger percentage of people are renewing than before. In the past we only got about 30% renewal. A lot of people bought and joined for only 1 year to practice. now the renewal rate is over 50%. The same things happens though. Someone buys a gun and brings the wife and kids out to learn to shoot then starts fishing the next year.

We need more property and more help but we are limited in what we can do by a grandfather permit clause. The property has changed from agriculture to low density residential. That is hurting our growth.

I have plenty of shotshell and still shoot some skeet; however, have not been able to shoot my 45acp because of the ammo shortage.

I have plenty of ammo and the components to load plenty more but haven't felt like shooting anything since November. It's too cold to use outdoor ranges and the indoor club I belong to is crowded much of the time, so I've just stayed home.

But boredom is setting in. I may have to go shooting so the reloading will give me something to do.
