NO SHOOTING AFTER 8:00PM!!!

The ranges close at 8:00pm (Range Rule #1).  There is no shooting allowed after 8:00pm on any of the ranges.  The board members get calls from the neighbors every time someone continues shooting past 8:00pm.  We have regular security patrols at the range that will be stepped up around closing time.  Personnel will be asked to observe and report any live fire activities after 8:00pm.  Your membership may be revoked without refund for breaking any of the range rules.

The September Newsletter has been completed:

The downloadable file prints out to 5 pages, including the calendar page.


Note: A large part of the September newsletter is quoted text from a recent Ceasefire Oregon blog posting.  Please be assured, the views represented by Ceasefire Oregon are NOT the views of Big Timber Rifle and Pistol Club.  The information quoted from Ceasefire Oregon is in effort to make you more aware of what we are up against in our ongoing battle to keep our Second Amendment rights in Oregon, which has become a battleground state on this issue.

LINCOLN COUNTY S.A.P. ORDINANCE MAKES THE BALLOT!
The Lincoln County Second Amendment Preservation (S.A.P.) Ordinance has been certified and will be on the November 6, 2018 general election ballot.  Please be sure to vote “Yes” to pass this measure and protect our Second Amendment rights in Lincoln County, Oregon.  A “Yes” vote on the Lincoln County Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance will be a vote telling our county government and law enforcement that we will not stand for efforts to restrict our gun rights and will not allow them to use our money for enforcement of such laws.  (updated September 2, 2018)

RIFLE RANGE ROOF COMPLETE
Work on the rifle range roof is now complete.  Remember that all live fire activities must end by 8:00pm.  Here are some pictures taken during the work.  (updated September 1, 2018)

TIME TO GO ON THE OFFENSIVE
THE COMMON FIREARMS ACT MOVES TO NEXT STAGE

A firearms protection ballot measure has recently been filed with the Oregon Secretary of State's office to put a measure on the November 2020 general election ballot that we're calling, “The Common Firearms Act.”  The measure is a Constitutional Amendment designed to help thwart the kinds of hateful attacks we saw with the now defeated Measures 43 and 44.  To read the measure, click here.

The Chief Petitioners have gathered the first 1,000 signatures needed to move this petition to the ballot titling stage and do not need anymore signatures at this point.  After the expected legal challenges, signature gathering will begin in earnest to get this Oregon Constitutional Amendment on the November 2020 general election ballot.  For more information about this effort, please visit their website, The Common Firearms Act.  (updated August 14, 2018)

RANGE LOCK-INS
The range gate lock was changed promptly on July 1st when the new membership year began.  If you have not paid your dues and received your new key, don't use the range.  Also, YOU are responsible for making sure your new key works in the lock.  DO NOT follow another member into the range without making sure your new key works.  If you do get yourself locked-in at the range, no one is obligated to come let you out…  You could be stuck there for a while…  And we all know how poor cell phone reception is there to boot!  Do not attempt to dismantle any locking or blocking devices.  Damages done will be billed to you and your membership could be revoked.  Please, be responsible, pay your dues, and test your new key the first time you use it.  (July 15, 2018)
