We will have a 30+ bench rifle shed for 100-400 yard ranges, 2 trap stations and starting with 5 pistol bays. All the ranges are separated from each other with no overlap. Rifle ranges are on schedule to be completed by December 2018 with completion of the pistol bays and trap ranges by spring of 2019. IDPA, USPSA, 3-gun, ATA, high power, small bore and bench rest chair persons are planning events. These events will be slow starting at first because of ongoing construction. Stay tune for developments. We are planning on range improvements and adding new facilities in coming years as we grow. Oh yes, an Archery range is also in the works.

    PCC match at MTSC 12/31

    I plan on being 3 weeks into a new Left knee, otherwise I would make it. New owner of a PCC.
  12. Gallatin Gun Club will host its last indoor match at Sumner Gun and Supply on November 8th. Start time will be 6:00PM, set up at 5:00PM. 70 rounds required. 4 stages, all IDPA rules apply. No match will be held on November 22nd. Steve Murphy will take over for the December 13th match under the Sumner Gun banner. Please give Steve and Doug your same support that you have given me. I want to Thank Sumner Gun for allowing Gallatin Gun IDPA to operate at their range. Gallatin Gun is still looking for land and will most likely reopen as a different Club at an unknown location. I must step down to take care of some health issues for a couple of months. After that I have agreed to take over as match Director over the USPSA matches for MCTS. I will Retire from my job at NES after 38 years on the job on December 1st. I plan on making a full time commitment to the shooting sports sometime next year. Thank you all. https://practiscore.com/gallatin-gun-idpa-at-sumner-gun-8/register

    Gallatin Gun Club Range

    Well. I am back from the lets just listen to one side planning commission. I sat through and listen to several tell their lies and half truths. Even one guy that bragged owning an AR-15 and how much fun it was to cut trees down with it in his back field, then explained how we just cannot have a Gun Range here, where would the bullets go and all that lead, the guy that has a trap range on his lot but having a Professional built range in the area with safety officers is just out of the question. One lady admitted to being an NRA member. or my kids just would not be safe.... or the poor Deer's we hunt. We are thinking about going to the full board and by passing this local group. They had no interest in hearing our response on the issues. We have 500 members needing a range with over 400 on the wait list. I cannot see 12 locals overriding this if we can satisfy all the requirements. End of Rant. for now.
