The Muskogee Gun Club is a NRA Affiliate that was founded to encourage organized pistol and rifle shooting amongst its members.  The aim of these activities is for members to gain knowledge of safe handling and proper care of firearms, as well as improved marksmanship. The club meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm:  Muskogee Public Library, 801 W Okmulgee St.

CANCELLED ZOMBIE SHOOT CANCELLED

Well the workday we had to prepare for the Zombie Shoot was a bust. A big thank you to Dee Page and Mr. Dealy for showing up for work day. We got stuff done ,but not enough to hold the Zombie Shoot. Lack of participation is to blame for the cancellation so sorry about the inconvenience,but there you go. We don’t  have the shooting events we had just a year ago due to the lack of interest of the membership. Hopefully as we slow down for the winter season the next year will bring a new surge of interest in the shooting sports at the club.

Since we have the Youth Sports Shoot on the 2nd of August we need to do a workday to clean and mow in preparation. Saturday July the 26th starting around 7:00 to try to beat the heat. If you have a mower or weed eater and can bring it  we would appreciate it. We will be doing general cleanup we have no major projects at this time to do. There are a few spots left for this shoot so don’t wait to long if you want in.

So with this event we will need volunteers, and range safety officers to help out. If you can help come to the regular monthly meeting on July 21st at the library.

Also this means we need to do a cleanup day July 26th the Saturday before. We have a had a few of these before so you know the drill. This shooting event is for the kids so I would really like to see some real support for this event. If you can’t donate your time and labor maybe you can donate some extra ammo for the kids. The 25.00 dollars they are charging for this won’t cover all the costs of this event, it’s not being done for the money but to give kids a chance to experience different types of firearms and how to handle them correctly. We want them to come away from this with a understanding of firearms and not a fear of them.
