American Marksman coming to ERGC!

The Escambia River Gun Club is participating in a nationwide event that is being hosted by American Marksman in conjunction with the Outdoor Channel.

What is American Marksman?  It is a .22 (rifle & pistol) competition that pits amateur shooters of all ages against each other, all competing for the title of The American Marksman.   It is a three-level national tour of target shooting competitions in which competitors begin at the local level and compete to advance to regional and ultimately to the national championship event.  The event begins March 1st and runs through May 31st.

Escambia River Gun Club is one of the local ranges where individuals who want to compete will shoot their qualifier.  At ERGC we have designated Fridays and Saturdays from 9a.m. - 1p.m. for the qualifying times.

If you are an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer and would like to volunteer some time to help out with this event, please contact Jonathan Byrd who will be managing the event for ERGC.  Jonathan can be reached at:  ecubyrdman@gmail.com.

If you haven't made out to the range lately, you've been missing some major construction projects.  Here are a few photos -- http://escambiarivergunclub.org/Galleries/Misc/2013-06%20Construction/index.php.


Intermittent Range Closures

ERGC members, please be advised that we are currently doing range renovations on various ranges at different times through the week.  These renovations sometimes cause the closure of a range, but the closures are typically for a short duration.  If anyone has questions regarding range availability, please call the on-duty range safety office at 1-850-356-6534.  Thanks for your patience during our construction.  We all know that the end result is going to be awesome and well worth the minor inconveniences along the way.
