Due to unforseen circumstances, the club is looking for any club member who wishes to join the committee. There will also be the secretary position becoming vacant after the next committee meeting on the 5th of May as the current secretary will be resigning from the post due to a house move.
If anybody is interested in either of the positions please contact a member of the committee or post a letter with your name in the post box at the front of the club house.
The club can run with a quorum of 5 committee members but cannot function without a secretary.
This is to remind all members that J A runs the Pony Club every Monday from 4pm until 6pm. Jack needs 15 minutes before and after to set the range up and dismantle at the end of the shoot. Could all members please ensure that these times are free and that they give themselves plenty of time to have their shoot so as not to encroach on the Pony Club times.
thanks you in advance for your co-operation on this matter.
Annual Club Competition
Apologies from the committee over this years club annual competition. Due to circumstances there will be no competition this year but hopefully there will be one again next year.
“When he called stating he was having accuracy issues he had no idea the rounds had not left the barrel,” said the company on social media. “After receiving his carbine in we discovered the issue, re-barreled his 995TS and sent it back to him. How’s that for customer service?”
The dreaded squib load, where a bullet does not leave the barrel and typically prevents follow-on rounds from exiting, is one of the most dangerous malfunctions a shooter can experience. They often lead to dramatic and unsafe “ka-boom” situations that can result in injury and permanent damage to both life and property.
The post by Hi-Point, a company that catches a lot of shade in the gun community but backs up their products with a famous lifetime warranty, garnered almost 500 comments.
“Dude needs to buy a lotto ticket and probably go to church to say thanks,” said one. “How did he not notice it was 8050 grains or so heavier…” observed another.
And probably the best observation: “Say all you want, but you can’t knock that grouping.”
*This post was updated from the original, which stated the barrel was from a .45ACP 4595TS Carbine, after Hi-Point stealth updated their original post from that to a 9mm 995TS Carbine.
Due to increases in the price of ammunition from our suppliers the committee have decided that the cub will now have to stop selling CCI mini mags as they are now too expensive to buy in but will still have CCI standard, blazer and eley ammunition on sale.
