08.08.18 - This weekend's 3Gun (Aug 11th) and Steel Challenge (Aug 12th) matches are cancelled. Due to the amount of rain sustained over the past few weeks, our access road and pit areas are washed out and in need of repair. Please bear with us as we develop a plan to restore the facilities to shoot worthy. Please check with the match directors or this news page for any further developments.

07.15.18 - Sunday's Steel Challenge Gun Match on July 15, 2018 is Cancelled. Due to the number of withdrawal requests and direct messages citing the rain, we are cancelling the match because of a severe front moving through our area and the duration of the predicted rain. We apologize to those shooters willing to share your time with us and hopefully, we will see you in August.

05.11.18 - Saturday's 3 Gun Match on May 12, 2018 is Cancelled. Due to the severe front moving through our area and the duration of the predicted rain, the pit areas will not be ideal/safe to perform the type of movement required for this designed match and its challenges. We would rather err on the side of safety and provide a fun enjoyable match for all. I'd rather make the decision now so that you may make alternative plans for your Saturday. I appreciate you wanting to share your time with us and hopefully, we will see you next month.

03.16.17 CANCELED: KSA Open Trap for March 16. The trap houses are currently buried.

03.15.17 We don't think it will be a surprise to anyone that Saturday's IDPA match has been cancelled due to snowfall. There is just no way we will have accessible shooting bays on Saturday. Our next match is scheduled for April 15th. Hopefully the weather will be a little kinder by then. Please note that IDPA matches will now begin registration at 9:00 with hammer down at 10:00.

03.11.17 We can't seem to catch a break with the weather. Wind chill temps will be between 10 and 13 degrees tomorrow. Trigger control works best when you can feel your fingers and we cannot set up enough portable heat stations to ensure the health and safety of shooters and staff. After consulting today's brave 3Gunners and the match staff, it's in the best interest to CANCEL Sunday's match. This is a disappointment as we have canceled several this winter. We look forward to shooting with everyone in April.

03.10.17The NRA High Power Match is CANCELED due to weather. See you in April.

The thaw and refreezing is only going to make it worse for Sunday. We will try again in March. In the meantime - someone take out that groundhog.

02.18.13 - Dear Pennsylvania NRA Member:
Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and other anti-gun Senators are pushing a proposal that would dramatically expand the current instant background check system by criminalizing private firearm transfers. They are using the misleading label of “universal background checks” to create confusion in order to pass this legislation quickly through the U.S. Senate.
Don’t be fooled. Any system that criminalizes private firearms transfers – whether between a grandfather and granddaughter, father-in-law and son-in-law, or two law-abiding gun owners who have known each other for years – is a direct infringement on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Further, criminals will never submit to such a system so it will have no effect on crime – and the only way to enforce “universal background checks” is to create a national registry of gun owners. Please email, write, AND call your U.S. Senators, Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, and ask them to OPPOSE this gun control scheme in addition to any bill that would reinstate a failed ban on semi-automatic rifles or magazines.
