Anyone using the 200 yard target, PLEASE NO DRIVING a vehicle past the 100 yard target area. The club members have been making a walkway with stone to keep everyone from having to walk through mud & water to place targets. Vehicles are destroying what we're trying to fix out there. Thanks.
As we get closer to the hunting season, many of you will come out to shoot and zero in. When you finish, please clean up shell casings on the rifle range. It should be easy as the tools are there to do so and the concrete floor helps. It not only looks untidy, it could be a safety hazard causing falls or muscle strains.
An indoor pistol 22LR "TACK SHOOT" will be held on Sundays twice a month starting at 1PM. Dates are 11/19, 12/3, and 12/17.
Shooting times- The ranges will be open from 8 AM to Sunset Monday through Saturday and 12 noon to Sunset on Sunday. Not sure of Sunset?...check your weather station/news station, your PA Hunting and Trapping Digest, or online. Its not when it gets dark!!
Indoor 3 gun zombie shoot starting October 5th and will be held at 5 PM on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays. 22LR pistols, rifles and/or revolvers only. Conact Ralph Weaver at 412-610-2388 for more information.
Range Safety Rules - After a lot of consideration and thought, your board has come up with "Range Safety Rules". This should eliminate any lack of guidelines or confusion on what is expected. Get your copy by clicking on Range Safety Rules or asking one of our officers.
Please use your guns on proper ranges. Pistols and rim fire 22 rifles only on the pistol ranges. Rifles on the rifle range. Shotguns on the new shotgun range (on the right of the rifle range) and if shooting trap on the silhoutte range,please shoot from center to right only. Please pick up your shells on the rifle range. Don't leave them for someone to slip and fall.
Membership in ISA is an important venture. The ability to shoot rifles, pistols, muzzle loaders, shotguns, and/or arrows to sharpen your skills and to give you the satisfaction of being "On Target" is valuable. Your membership includes the right of your "significant other" and/or ANY child under 18 years of age to participate with member present. Other family members and guests have to become members. We do have several events that are open to the public, and for these events, invite those not included in your membership and plan ahead for a good time.

What's Broken? - Anyone noting something that needs fixing or attention please let Kevin Kennelty or one of our officers know. We want to make sure our facility stays viable, respectable, and usable.
Safety/Accidents - Please report any safety violations or accidents to one of our principal officers. The officers and board members need to review and have correct facts to respond to media, members, and public questions. Rumors travel fast and can be distorted. We are not looking for scapegoats or reasons to act against any members. Accidents happen, we all have done our share. If something can be done reasonably to correct a problem, be assured it will be done. Thank you.
