News and Upcoming Events
Paradise Sporting Goods now has fishing licenses for sale and hunting licenses will be available when released by the state.
Members interested in attaining NRA Chief Range Safety Officer level should contact Forrest Holnbach at 530-872-9457 to arrange training.
NRA training and certification classes are now available from our Chief Range Safety Officer, Forrest Holnbach. Forrest is an NRA certified training counselor/instructor and offers the following classes: Certified Home Firearms Safety, Metallic Cartridge Reloading, Shotgun Shell Reloading, Certified Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun. As far as we know, Forrest is the only training instructor in Butte County, and one of very few in Northern California. What this means to you is that travel to central California is no longer required to participate in these classes, so costs are greatly reduced. Call Forrest at 530-872-9457 for information.
RSO CLASS SET FOR SEPTEMBER
The first step in becoming a Paradise Rod and Gun Club approved RSO starts with RSO traing. The next training session has been scheduled for Monday Sept 9th 6-10pm and Saturday Sept 14th from 8am until finished with the NRA exam. The training site is located at the Paradise Airport on lower Clark Rd. Call Forrest at 530-872-9457 for information.
NRA RSO training classes are also available from Caleb Chinn at Flying Brass LLC at either 530-877-2161 or Flying Brass, LLC.
HONE YOUR SHOOTING SKILLS...EARN A PATCH!
The Paradise Rod and Gun Club, Inc. is starting the "NRA Qualification Program" at our range. This program is open to all club members regardless of age. NRA qualifications achieved while shooting under the clubs' control, will be rewarded with the corresponding award for the discipline fired. This will be a patch and rockers for Pro-Marksman through Expert, and the full packet for distinguished-expert. These awards will be presented by the club.
This is a chance for all of us to be able to shoot with our friends on our range and have one heck of a good time doing it. Shooting will be done on Sunday's (weather permitting) with show up times of 8:30 A.M. for safety and range instructions and shooting from 9:00 A.M. until finished. Targets and record keeping will be provided by the club. There will be a $5.00 charge per shoot, but this also allows you to shoot the rest of the day.
This is a NRA Qualification shoot, not a competition. It gives all of us a chance to go out and shoot, and to be acknowledged and rewarded for our skills achieved. With our current range facilities, we have offered these NRA qualification shoots in the past:
As interest develops, we can offer additional NRA qualification shoots in the following disciplines:
Pretty much if it is safe and shoots, we can have a NRA Qualification for it. This could be a great opportunity to dust off those Garands we have setting around and put them back to use shooting.
