Remembering 9/11

This Tuesday is the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and UA Flight 93. We encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the life lost as well as the bravery and sacrifice of the first responders that day. Additionally, please do the same for the servicemen and women who participated in the conflicts that developed after the attack. We appreciate all that you give for your fellow Americans. Thank you.

This Saturday, September 16th, the MRGC will be hosting the GOAL Range Seminar training course. The course covers topics critical to managing and operating outdoor firearm ranges. The R&P committee encourages all available and interested members to attend - these ranges are the responsibility of all of us! For more details and to sign up, please go to the GOAL website (click here).


Last Saturday, 11 shooters gathered to participate in our monthly casual competitive shoot. This month, participants paired up at the firing line and competed to shoot down 5 empty cans then a final full can of of soda; which causes quite a pop! Everyone used a handgun of their choice with a maximum of ten shots. First shooter to finish all the cans ended the round. If the full can was not hit last or if multiple cans fell in one shot (i.g. a shot hitting the board), that shooter automatically got a zero for that round. The schedule was: three rounds of shooting for points to earn bye(s) for the upcoming rounds, three rounds of elimination, and a final round with all full plastic water bottles. Congrats to come-back winner Bud, who went home with a $50 gift card to Great Road Firearms in Stow, MA. See Pics and a short video of the event below!

Wall of SHAME!

We do not take pleasure in suspending our members from our ranges, but it is critical that the rules be followed! Deviating, even slightly, from the range rules puts yourself, your fellow members/guests, our community, and our club in general at risk. If you see someone breaking the rules or engaging in unsafe activities, contact us here ASAP. If you feel it is safe to do so, please politely identify the unsafe activity to the person. If you do not feel safe to do so or they refuse to correct the unsafe behavior; pack up your firearm and leave! Do not pick up your shell casings or take down your targets, transport yourself and your firearm in the safest way possible! Once in a safe location, contact us immediately here!
