    A club for women who share an aim

    A club for women who share an aim - On Friday night at the venerable Iroquois Rod and Gun Club, the targets hanging in the shooting range were pink, and one of the shooters wore a tiara. It was the monthly meeting of the Schenectady chapter of The Well Armed Woman, a national organization founded in 2012 by an Arizona woman put off by the sexism she encountered when she looked into buying a gun. There are now more than 200 chapters of The Well Armed Woman in 44 states.


    Girls take aim at shooting contest

    Girls take aim at shooting contest - Shooting is often perceived as a male sport, but that perception is changing.  Girls from across the country have joined their respective teams to participate in the 29th Youth Hunter Education Challenge sponsored by the National Rifle Association this week at Mill Cove Environmental Area outside of Mansfield.  A total of 16 teams from across the country, with 300 competitors, are at the competition.


    Skeet shooting competition helps fund high school scholarships

    Skeet shooting competition helps fund high school scholarships - A line of men wearing protective ear wear stood getting direction from a firearms instructor. Holding shotguns, they were standing on a skeet-shooting range waiting for the clay pigeons to fly.  “Pull,” the shooters shouted in turn, blasting away at the neon orange discs. When one man called “pull” but the pigeon flew out shattered from the thrower, the instructor called for a time-out. It was a matter of etiquette.  When the bird flies out of the launcher shattered, a shooter gets a second chance, he explained.  All of the clay pigeon shooters at the New Paltz Rod & Gun Club on Saturday, May 10 — the ones getting instructions on sporting clay etiquette — were there for a special reason. They were there to help the Freemasons raise money for local high schoolers.
