Would you consider trading for a Model 34 Remington .22 caliber NRA Target with original Lyman peep target sights. Manufactured approximately in mid 1930s, tube fed, unique shell lifter, great condition for being 83 years old. I am local and can bring it to the range for inspection.

Site Suggestions/Issues / Re: Concealed carry at the range?
« Last post by RStewart on October 15, 2017, 03:06:07 PM »
I have read the range rules and searched the site and have not seen anything about concealed carry.  I have a LA CGP and carry most of the time.  It has never been an issue at other ranges where I have shot although that could be because I don't tell.

With that being said I do practice while carrying concealed.  While shooting my pistol I follow ALL safety rules but when I am finished (usually at the end of the day) I load up, holster and go on my way.  I usually shoot rifle first so I would be armed during that portion of the day.  During that time I do not display my weapon or mention I am armed.  It may print or otherwise become apparent I am armed but no other shooter or range officer has said anything.

So to the point.  What is the Club's opinion on this matter? 

I seek no special treatment in this matter but don't want to get busted or banned before I become a member.  Don't want to make a bad first impression.

"During that time I do not display my weapon or mention I am armed."

If you do this you should be fine.

Welcome!

We have 600 yd matches on the first and second Saturdays of the month. I would come to the F Class and Prone Match on the first Saturday to get a feel for how things are done (watch the firing line and spend some time in the target pits), then bring your rifle and shoot the second Saturday at the Field Precision Rifle match. The FPR match is more geared for new shooters and is a lot of fun.

Welcome to the forum CS!  We have a great bunch of shooters at PA and we always have a good time!
Looking forward to you coming out to a match.  We have several matches every month that cover everything from rim fire to pistol, F/Class and Prone.  Have a look at our match section on the main page for info.

Good morning,

This is my first post so I will tell everyone a little about myself.

I am an NRA Benefactor Life member as well as being a member of GOA and NAGR.
I live in Hammond, LA.  Married 35 years to the same wonderful woman.

I retired last May.
Had my right knee replaced in June and am now doing fine.
I have been active in shooting since the 70's and competed in IPSC Pistol matches in the early days for many years until it became more game than practical.
I am interested in long range shooting which is why I would like to become a member of Palo Alto.
I have built several AR-15 rifles including a DPMS platform .308 with a Shilen match barrel and a CMP Special Garand with which I intent to compete.
I will build a bolt rifle for competition as time and money allow.
I do my own reloading.

I am planning to take classes to become a Range Master through the folks at Honey Island range.

I would like to come to a match as an observer or even to help with targets or spotting.

I guess this covers the basics of who I am and my plans.  The rest you will have to get face to face ;)
