NSSA Pistol Chairman
All spots for the upcoming JOAD season have been filled. We apologize to those who we could not be accommodated, there are strict Archer to Coach ratio limits to ensure the proper level of instruction may be provided.
Improvements for the Rifle Range pavilion are coming this fall. The first upgrade scheduled is the replacement of the broken concrete pad. Work will start Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 2017. This will require shutting down the range during work hours, 8 AM until about 3:30 or 4 PM all week. We will move the shooting benches into the grass and establish a new firing line there so that members may shoot each day after the workers finish. All range rules will remain the same as before. Shooters are still required to sign in as always, but will not be charged to shoot, as the cash box will be unavailable. The pistol range will not be affected by this work, and will remain open.
On Saturday, September 9 the workers are planning to pour the concrete. After that shooting out on the grass should be available every day all day, until we are told we can use the pad and bring the benches back under the pavilion. The F Class CMP shoot will occur on Sunday, September 10, weather permitting.
Defense Training International is offering a 2 day “ARMED RESPONSE TO A TERRORIST ATTACK” course at NSSA on July 29-30 2017.
Visit http://defense-training.com to register. Read on for the course outline.
ARMED RESPONSE TO A TERRORIST ATTACK
This course is designed to prepare armed citizens against the threat of terrorist violence and other active-shooter events.
Current events indicate a steady increase in terror-related attacks against westerners. Violent extremists and other savages are actively targeting LEOs, Military servicemen and women–as well as their families–to be butchered in public. In addition to LE/MIL individuals and families, we see a rise in these types of attacks on virtually any target of opportunity. Even members of their own culture/faith/ideology are martyred for their depraved cause! This trend will likely continue for the foreseeable future.
For that reason, we have seen the need to develop this specialized firearms course with a focus on armed response to these unique dangers in our modern world. Classroom instruction will cover practical options and tactics intended to give individual operators the life-saving mindset and skill sets for prevailing against such attacks.
