Hilltop Gun Club activities currently are at a stand still due to the 11″ of snow we received this past weekend. All training has been suspended for the time being. However once it warms back up and the snow pack melts we will be open for members to train again.
Current construction updates for the range will be moving some bullet impact ranges, to fix the nonstop 24/7/365 toe of the back stop water run 0ff for The Slot Range. That area must have cut open a Spring when we made the range. Even after installing 200′ of 4″ PVC drain pipe the area remains soggy at the hill toe. The next project we are working on is clearing out a slice of the forest for our 300+ yard rifle range which will be the only one in the entire S E Ohio area for members to shoot and train. Staff is currently building new target stands, shooting benches and portable benches for the students to place their kit and firearms on while shooting on The Slot range.
In addition staff will be building a NRA designed shooting platform / shelter house for the rifle shooters. This will include a 12′ by 32′ deck with roof, shooting benches, sound abatement items, rifle racks, benches and shade cloth. We assume if all goes well (hahaha) the rifle platform will be ready for use in Mid March.
We will have the 2016 training schedule up soon. Last, the board members of HillTop Gun Club is currently working with the staff of a national woman’s firearms advocacy group called The Well Armed Woman. Their primary mission is education and instruction and shooting. Because HillTop Gun Club has the only private members range we were approached by the local TWAW contact to be able receive training and shooting use of the range. Please check back for more information.
