On 15 July, the Crusader 4-H Shooting Team held a Rimfire Sporter match, with 14 shooters turning out for the event. They also shot a sporting clays match on the same day. For those that don't know, the team is using CZ 452 rifles on loan from the DEGS inventory. Below are a few photos of the event. The match winners are pictured in the photos, and are (from left to right) K. Alligood shotgun winner, S. Vosburgh rimfire O-Class winner, and A. Waters rimfire T-Class winner. 

Looks like the weather is not our friend this weekend. Due to a chance of steady rain hovering around 80 to 90 percent all morning, we're going to have to cancel tomorrow's match.

Our next match will be held on 8 April (the 2nd Saturday of the month instead of the usual 3rd Saturday) to avoid any possible conflict with Easter weekend. Hope to see you there!

Remember, if you're interested in one of those gorgeous, personalized insulated mugs, drop us a line and we will set you up with one.

We kicked off our 2017 shooting season last week with our Garand clinic, and what a great clinic it was! We started out at the Pig Palace, which served as our classroom. There we covered the basics of the shooting positions, sight alignment, how to operate the Garand and much more. If you have never been to the Palace before, it's located a couple of miles up the road from the range and is a beautiful spot with more than enough room for our class.

Great news: we have secured the Pig Palace as the location for the classroom portion of the clinic. We will open the doors there at 7:30 to begin registration, and the class will kick off at 8am. We will spend about two hours in the classroom before moving over to the range for about two hours of live fire. 

The Pig Palace is only about a mile up the road from the range, and is located here.

The clinic will be this Saturday, 18 February, and there is still time to sign up. Contact us if you are interested!

We have now published our 2017 Match and Clinic calendar! 

On 18 February, our certified master instructor Clint Randles will hold a Garand clinic that will cover the basics of match shooting, marksmanship, and the Civilian Marksmanship Program. It will include classroom time and also live fire time on the range. 

Our first match will be held in March, and we will hold one every month through December. Matches are usually on the 3rd Saturday of the month, except where noted. 

Also, DEGS will have a table at the S&D Gun Show in Greenville on the weekend of Feb 11-12 2017. If you are in the area, drop by and say hello!
