“Nowhere else in the Constitution does a 'right' attributed to 'the people' refer to anything other than an individual right.  What is more, in all six other provisions of the Constitution that mention 'the people,' the term unambiguously refers to all members of the political community, not an unspecified subset…  The Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms…  The very text of the Second Amendment implicitly recognizes the pre-existence of the right and declares only that it ‘shall not be infringed.'”

~ Antonin Scalia, U.S. Supreme Court Justice

REST IN PEACE
Wayne Hodges, BTRPC Vice-President, passed away Friday, March 22nd after an extended illness.  Read more in the April newsletter.  (April 2, 2019)


The one and only Wayne Hodges, we will miss you.

BENCHREST MATCHES - THIRD SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH
Got an accurate rifle?  Come out to the Steel Gong Benchrest Matches on the third Saturday of May, June and July.  200, 300, 385 and 500 meter gongs of around 2 minute size will challenge your skill.  10 shots at each range with sighters.  $5.00 entry fee, starts at 9:00am.

In August, we will return to the Military Rifle Match format, which is also a benchrest shoot.  Bring out those old Springfield, Mauser, Enfield and other military rifles and have some fun.  Shoot at the regular silhouettes (chicken, pig, turkey and ram) at 100, 200, 300 and 385 meters for iron sights, and out to 500 meters for vintage sniper rifles.  40 shots for record with sighters.  $5.00 entry fee, starts at 9:00am.  (March 19, 2019)

GUN RIGHTS BY STATE
Here is an interesting map that shows which states have the most “freedom” in different categories as determined by the CATO Institute… The category shown is gun rights.  Click here to be taken to the website where you can see other categories.  Oregon's Democratically controlled 2019 Legislative Session could have our once great state dropping all the way down to #50 on this map.


LOST & FOUND
There have been several items found at the range lately.  If any of these items are yours, please call Wesley's Trading Post at (541) 265-4556 and provide a full, accurate description of your items to claim.  (December 16, 2018)
