The shoot program for the April Registered Shoot taking place on April 5th and 6th is now posted. Please click on the "Registered Shoot Info" tab above to see all of the details.

Also, the 2014 Spring League is fast approaching as well! General information about the Spring League including the sign up dates, fees, registration form, etc is now available by clicking on the "Spring League" tab above. Don't forget that space is limited and squads tend to fill up fast!


Congratulations to our new Club President, Jay Wright, our new Club Vice President, Karl Alger, and two new members of the Board of Directors, Chuck Patterson and Don Tatti.

We'd also like to welcome back our newly re-elected Club Treasurer, Robert Terry, Club Secretary, Harriet Satterburg, and Board Member Kurt Berry.

Combined with our Board Members who still have one year left on their term (Bill Hammerstron, Jim Terry, and Brian Wright) and our Past President, Scot Hopson, the KGC is in good hands and looking forward to yet another great year of shooting, boating, and of course supporting local charities and other community organizations.

Please join us in thanking Scot Hopson for his dedication to the KGC during his term as the Club's President and continued participation on the Board of Directors as the Past President. With his change in roles, that also means that we must say goodbye to Dan Boucher in his role on the Board as Past President. Both of these men have spent countless hours making the KGC the Club it is today and we thank them for that.


Coming up in April.....

Interested in becoming a member?

The Kingsburg Gun Club bylaws currently limit the number of active, paid memberships at 150 members.   It is common for a waiting list of prospective members to be in place when a membership becomes available.
Prospective members must be sponsored by an existing member and complete an application for membership.  Upon acceptance as a member of KGC an initiation fee and the dues for the current calendar year are due and payable.  

The first year of membership is considered a probationary year and the new member will be expected to fulfill the requirements of membership as outlined in the bylaws.
If a prospective member does not personally know any current members for sponsorship they are encouraged to attend and participate in club workdays and events as listed on the club calendar.   Any hours volunteered prior to becoming a member should be logged in the club work binder and will be taken in to consideration when there’s an opening available.

For more specific questions regarding membership, you can email the Membership Chairperson.

Trapshooting Etiquette:

Make sure you understand where your assigned trap field is located. Be sure you are behind the field well in advance of your turn to shoot.

Be ready to shoot when your squad is called, and when it’s your turn to shoot in the squad.

Do not lean over each time to pick a shell out of a box on the ground or to pick up empties. Have your shells where you don’t have to stoop to get them.

Do not raise your gun until the shooter ahead of you fires.

Remain on your post, standing facing the trap quietly, until the fifth person has fired their fifth shot, and then move to the next post. At the end of the round, remain still on your post facing the trap until the last person has fired the last shot. If you are leadoff, do not fire until you have checked and ensured that all members of the squad are on their posts and ready.

Never load your gun before changing positions. When going from post 5 to post 1 turn to the right to avoid bumping guns with the shooter coming from post 4. When moving from post 5 to post 1, always walk behind the other shooters.

Load only one shell at a time, except when shooting doubles. If a delay occurs, remove the shell(s) from the chamber. Close your gun only when you are on the post and facing the trap. Close it only when you are preparing to shoot, and avoid disturbing other shooters when doing so.

Do not allow ejected shells from your gun to hit or annoy other shooters.

Do no unnecessary talking on the line. Keep your voice down when you are around other squads who are shooting.

Time your shooting to establish a rhythm in the squad. Call for your target in a clear voice; do not call in such a loud voice so as to trip the voice release on the adjacent fields. Likewise, do not call with such a quiet voice so that the release does not trip.

Be a sportsman at all times. If you are shooting well, others will be aware of it. You don’t need to brag unnecessarily. By the same token, if you are having a bad day, accept it without complaint or displays of anger.

Observe all safety rules. Ear and eye protection are mandatory. Do not point your gun at another person, even if you think it’s unloaded. Always keep your gun pointed toward the ground or the trap house. Off the firing line keep your action open at all times.

Shooters are almost always happy to have you look at their gun if you ask permission first. Do not pick up another shooter’s gun from the rack and handle it without asking.

Place your shooting bag on the ground. Benches are for bodies.

Read the ATA Rule Book and be familiar with the regulations.

Above all,  HAVE FUN!!!
