Safety Note:

I would like to say thank you to our safety director Phillip Mason for the job he does with our safety rules. We have had minimum infractions over the last couple of years due to his and the safety committee’s continuous tenacity. I would also like to acknowledge our membership for following these rules and their help enforcing and contributions to keeping our club safe.

In the Know:

A note for the club members that PCSC will have a booth at the Fort Worth gun show on August 1 st and 2 nd and August 22 nd and 23 rd So come out and say hello.
If you have not been for a PCSC match, you are missing the fun. Jon Kitts has some fun surprises for future matches, So come join us the second Saturday of the month. Bring plenty of water July is generally pretty warm.

Ryan is working with a designer to build an online renewal. By next month he will have a thorough report and this will give the designer time to get a product out and the bugs worked out. We look forward !
 
Thank You,

Whitney Scott McGuffie
09/10/1969 - 04/18/2020

Scot McGuffie, age 50, husband of Tahnya Walker of Springtown, Tx. Passed away on Saturday, April 18th 2020 in his home due to congestive heart failure. Born on September 10th 1969 in Heidelberg, Germany of the late Kay Clark and Ricky Lee McGuffie, he was raised in The Colony by his adoptive father, Jerry Walker.
        As a boy growing up in the suburbs of North Texas, he was a prankster and a pesterer of his two beloved sisters Ashley and Christy, then with the fair guidance and love of his true father, Jerry Walker, he grew into a strong, smart, talented young man, who then met the love of his life, Tahnya Kay It was ever his wish that “she live a thousand years and I a thousand less a day”, so that he would never live a day without her.
        Scott loved music, mainly rock ‘n roll, sound design, cinematography and special effects, literature, architecture, and, later in life, gunsmithing and reloading. His life’s work was in construction, and is seen in many of the more pristine buildings and hospitals in downtown Ft. Worth as well as the beautiful Denver airport. He began construction as a teenager doing drywall and through years of hard work became a foreman and later a superintendent with the KHK group with the goal of running his own business.
        He is survived by his two daughters Kalyn Linden and Kristen Monroe as well as his beloved wife Tahnya Walker, his sister Ashley Walker, her children Mikayla Amburn, Nykole Chasteen, Christian Bailey, and his Grandson Aidan Linden who looks just like his Pawpaw.
        His memorial service will be held at Parker County Sportsman Club, June 27th 2020 10 AM, we look forward to reminiscing and storytelling with his friends and work family.
Safety is Important

Reporting rule violations

     The main way we police our range is when our members reporting rule violations. This happened on May 31st that someone shot up the bullet retention boards on the east side of A. They also shot up the target frames and left a pile of 5.56 & 308 brass and a damage live round. This was intentional or rapid firing in an uncontrolled manner.
      The boards are aging but the person that did this force us to close the east two lanes because of the damage. Remember this your property and your club.
      Please report violations by text or email to:
 Phillip Mason – Director and chair of safety committee
 phillip_mason@msn.com 817-360-4800

Safety is important and it's easy -
when yellow flag is up
take a rest !!!
bring your full attention to the members downrange.

That is your job during that time.

Nothing else is as important as those people downrange.

Nothing !


Right here in Lake Worth, TX !
From the sales staff, to gunsmiths to owners, Scott was well known and liked. We give them mention because they did have a special relationship with Scott. They help promote the GoFundMe that we have set up for Scott's Memory and his Family. When you are in Trinity Ordnance, be sure and thank Richard Dennis and the staff for their KIND and GENEROUS support of Scott and Parker County Sportsman Club.

Notes from Secretary Daniel Barnes:

1. We have had several requests to renew late from existing members. They may pay the yearly fee but avoid the $100 initiation fee by attending an Orientation.
 
2. Range B gutter installation is complete, and the sagging beam on Range G has been re-positioned and reinforced.
 
3. A member suggested repair/replacement of the stools on Range B that are in rough shape. Adjustable-height feature is desirable. Jon K. looking into this and will report back to the Board.
 
4. Planning for the new Combat Pistol Range continues, with placement and design specifications firming up. Keith Eberly has requested a turnkey quote from an engineering firm and will present results to the Board.
 
5. Range A baffle replacement - samples of ballistic material in 2' x 2' sheets of thicknesses from .25 to 1.00 inches have been ordered by Ryan for testing by the Safety team and interested members. Testing dates will be communicated to participating parties. Contact Phillip or Ryan for more information.
 
6. Safety Team - Phillip reported the incident on Range A that destroyed a portion of the baffle and resulted in closure of the two firing lanes on the east end of the benches. Also, copies of range-specific rules have been placed in bins at the respective ranges for member use. See the article from Phillip in this Newsletter.
 
7. All 4-H youth activities on hold for now due to strict COVID-19 rules that cannot be met.
 
8. All Rifle matches are cancelled until September. Plans for matches in September, October, and November are still on, and dates will be confirmed in future issues of the Newsletter.
 
9. Pistol matches are on schedule, and plans for moving targets are being finalized. The Board authorized $300 for building targets that move and pop up to make the matches more challenging.
 
10. Shotgun - Supply of clays being nearly exhausted, $16,600 was approved to purchase a resupply shipment. Also approved were funds to replace the aging and maintenance-intensive machines for Trap on field 1 and both houses for Skeet on field 2. Manpower will be needed when the clays and new machines arrive for installation, so contact Ruben S. to volunteer your muscles!
 
11. Annual membership dues will remain the same for 2021.

Thank you Mr. Barnes !

By Alex Zielinski

It's FRIDAY !!! Thinking about making a trip out to the range this weekend? Do you have a plan for a weekend workout? I always struggle with what to bring, what skills to work on, and do I really want to expend the ammo when we are still suffering a market shortage. My answer, come with a plan. I'm going to post some simple practice drills each month in our Facebook Group that you can do on range days.  Read More...
Work Shop Fun !

Jon, Alex and Don are hard at it keeping target frames and backer boards fresh. You folks can really mess up some detailed mill work...LoL A good ol time was had in the work shop and you know Jon enjoys every minute of it. Keep up putting holes in the backer board but PLEASE leave the target frames alone ! LOL !
Parting Shots-

Fellow members, You might remember last month parting shot of the gun that Scott built. Well, Scott has been with me since and with Marilyn this time to score the winning hog - at 225 lbs - in the recent BBC, Big Boar Contest we entered at PKHC.

I told Marilyn they are usually bigger in the scope than actual, she agreed, but this one was different. "Party color" I said and mercy we said...he IS a big one !

Thanks Scott for your friendship, thoughtfulness and gunsmith talents !

Thanks Marilyn for best hunting companion !

Don't miss out on a good fishing boat... Call Ryan at 817 271 0467

The old equipment on this workhorse of a bass boat worked fine but, Scott upfitted her with more modern trolling motor and two state of art fish finders, front and rear. He and Kirsten got to take it out and fish together !

With times like they are, the estate needs to sell the boat. This 1987 AstroGlass 17.5 ft workhorse is powered by an oil injected 115 Suzuki outboard. Those are dependable. Lower unit has been professionally resealed. Large built in fuel tank. Front and rear fish finders, Powerful 24 volt trolling motor. She is wide and heavy - rides good on big water.

Boat is for sale special pricing !
