OREGON POLITICAL TAX CREDIT:
Every Oregon taxpayer has a tax credit available to them on their state taxes for making a donation to a Political Action Committee (PAC).  Single taxpayers may receive a credit up to $50 while married taxpayers may receive a credit up to $100.  This program is unique to Oregon and is an opportunity for you to have a say where the government spends your money.  Donations for 2017 need to be made by December 31st to qualify for a 2017 tax credit.  There are many worthy PACs, and one suggestion is the Oregon Firearms Federation PAC (OFF-PAC) which stands as a watchdog for local and state gun rights issues.  For more information on the Oregon Political Tax Credit visit: www.oregontaxcredit.com, and for more information on the Oregon Firearms Federation and OFF-PAC visit: www.oregonfirearms.org.  (12/17/2017)

ANNUAL TURKEY SHOOT NEXT SATURDAY!
Saturday, November 18th at 9:00am we "officially" kick off the Holiday Season at the Annual BTRPC Turkey Shoot!   The cost is $6 per gun for each round of competition and there will be three rounds: scoped rifles at 200 meters, open sight rifles at 100 meters and handguns at 50 meters.  Everyone who hits a target will receive their choice of a turkey or ham until supplies run out.  The public is welcome and children are allowed to shoot from the bench.  There'll be a fire burning in the stove to warm up cold trigger fingers between rounds, come on out and join in the fun. (11/11/2017)

OHA ANNUAL FAMILY DAY
On Saturday, August 5th, in conjunction with the Lincoln County Chapter of the Oregon Hunter's Association and the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, we welcomed youth and families to the range in a fun filled day of shooting. Altogether, participants moved through four stages including shotguns, centerfire rifles, rimfire rifles and archery, in this annual shooting skills clinic. Some participants were pulling the trigger for the first time and others were there to improve upon skills learned in prior seasons, but all went away with smiles on their faces, a free lunch and some free swag!  (8/7/2017)

MEMBERSHIP DUES REMINDER
The 2017-18 membership year has begun and the gate lock has been changed.  If you have not yet paid your dues and completed your orientation, please do so. (7/5/2017)

RANGE SAFETY ORIENTATIONS FOR 2017-18 MEMBERSHIP YEAR
Please read the March 2017 Newsletter for additional information about recent range safety violations that highlight the need to bring back Range Safety Orientations for ALL MEMBERS beginning with the 2017-18 Membership Year this July.  All members, new and old alike, will receive their new gate keys at their Range Safety Orientation.  Further information and a schedule is forthcoming.  FYI: These are not the lengthy, day long range orientations as are required by many shooting ranges.  Ours can be conducted in a matter of about 15 minutes for small groups.  We are requiring them to be sure you understand the full scope of the range operating procedures and rules.  Please contact John Way for options if you will have difficulty getting to the range for an orientation.  (updated 5/21/2017)

2017 OREGON LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY IS IN SESSION
Quoted from the Oregon Firearms Federation website:

  • “The Obama regime is over.  We are on the road to reversing many decades of damage to our Constitution if the Republicans don’t cave. Meanwhile Oregon is still controlled by rights hating leftists.  This is no time to relax.  Please sign up for our legislative alerts to stay informed about gun rights in Oregon.”

Here's the link to sign up for the O.F.F. Legislative Alerts, and be aware, there are a number of anti-gun bills that have already been filed this session.  These include HB 2237 which would eliminate the safeguard that allows a firearm’s transfer to take place after 3 business days have elapsed if the Oregon State Police do not complete a background check.  Read more about this in the most recent O.F.F. Legislative Alert.  (2/4/2017)

WE STARTED THE YEAR WITH A BANG!

Shooting Fire Extinguishers on New Year's Day! - 1/1/2017

N.S.S.F. RIMFIRE CHALLENGE
The N.S.S.F. Rimfire Challenge Shoots were a great success this past year, so much so that we're going to start them back up in January instead of waiting until April!  Put it on your calendar, the 2017 season begins in January and runs through September with shoots on the second Saturday of each month.  We've got more fun planned with some new shooting scenarios, and as always, participants under 18 years of age get to shoot the club's ammunition.  Mark your calendars now and clean those .22s, we start shootin' 'em again on January 14th!  The January and February N.S.S.F. Rimfire Challenges will be held on the rifle range so we can stay warm by the stove!  (updated 12/29/2016)

WTF!
I'm really at a loss for words over this picture…  Any words that I'd be proud to utter in front of my wife and children that is.  If the perpetrator of this crime is caught, you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  More in the January Newsletter.  (12/22/2016)

SERIOUS RANGE VIOLATION!
I don’t believe I’m reporting this, but…  It was recently reported to the Club President that someone was seen driving out of the range with a recently shot deer in the back of their truck, which wasn’t there when they went into the range.  SHOOTING ANY ANIMALS or BIRDS ON THE RANGE IS FORBIDDEN!

NOTICE! - BTRPC will use whatever resources, Law Enforcement and Civil, required to see that anyone caught shooting an animal or bird on any BTRPC property is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, criminal and civil.  The civil part means BTRPC will sue the violator to the maximum extent possible.  (11/30/2016)
