General Club News

Summer was a busy time for you MCSA. Many improvements to the club were made by your Board of Directors. Here are a few of the things accomplished between the rain and storms:

The range has a new Range Office with a new classroom. The old vintage RO office is now gone. May it rest in peace. The parking area has been enlarged and cleaned up. This will allow more parking for our members during busy times, orientation for new members, and MCSA shooting events.

Trees and brush around Range 5 and Range 4 berms have been trimmed to improve our new camera system’s performance and reliability.

Work on Range 5 is complete.  It has been given a new drainage system. The 100 yards impact area has been cleaned up and new target holders installed.  The firing line area has been given two high pressure cleanings to remove all sludge around shooting benches and resting benches against back wall. When we say sludge, we mean SLUDGE!!

$20.00 Guest Fee. This policy took effect on August 1. The number of guests a member can bring at one time is limited to 2.  Of course, there may be a special event or time of year that a member would like to bring more guests, such as a family re-union, etc. A simple call ahead to the on-duty Range Officer can usually work this out.

The Club has few MCSA t-shirts and polo shirts left. When you visit the Club just ask the RO about them. We also have a few hats. If there is interest in the Fall, a new order will be placed at the beginning of 2020.


THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! After the January Annual Membership meeting, the planning of all the MCSA improvements began.  Several of your fellow MCSA members stepped up to the plate to work with the Board of Directors to “git ‘er done!!!”.  Our new building required flooring and other items. The Board of Directors would like to thank member Peter Army for his help in getting our new office ready to move into. He also assisted in adding a Finance Office at one end of the old classroom.  Peter is a licensed contractor and made sure all work was done to spec. If you do not know Peter, a photo of him is included below. When you see him, say thanks to Peter.

From the Board
“ Thank you Peter!! "

Steel Shoot is scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of each month at 8:00 a.m. on Range 2.
The Board will be discussing the start of a Bowling Pin Shoot in the near future.


Safety Rules & Reminders


Our range is a safe range. In order to keep the range a safe place to shoot, we will continue to address trends or concerns that Range Officers see and deal with daily.
With the location of the new Range Office AND the signage posted at several locations that remind members to check-in with the on-duty RO, we are seeing many members going past the RO office without checking in. PLEASE check-in when you visit the range. It is for your safety. And the safety of all members.
RO’s have noticed an increase in members not displaying proper muzzle control.  Proper muzzle control is keeping the muzzle pointed downrange at ALL times.
Firearms are to be uncased or cased AT the firing line when the range is HOT.  Uncasing a firearm BEHIND the firing line and bringing the firearm to the firing line is NOT ALLOWED.
Remember to sign-in at Range 5 and Range 6.
MCSA is your range. If you see something that is not safe or not allowed, say something. If you are not comfortable in discussing a situation with a fellow member, contact the on-duty Range Officer and let them deal with it. 
We want to keep our club safe and friendly for everyone.


New Member Orientation

The Orientation Classes for the 4th Quarter are scheduled for October 19th, November 16th, and December 21st at 11:00 a.m.
