The Cowboy Action Scores for June 9th are posted. We had a good turn out of 26 shooters including 3 new shooters along with two helpers and Dodge Bill stuck temporarily in a wheel chair to give his support and coach us on. All went well thanks to a group of many to help put the June shoot together and a special thanks goes out to Arnold Halye for spending his day at the club grounds in the rain roping off the parking area and talking to the IBS shooters about the Cowboy Action event going on the same day.

Cowboy Action Scores for April 14th are posted

Posted by rhunsinger on April 17, 2013 at 3:49 pm

We had a great turn out for the first shot this year with a lot of shooters from the North Mountain Club and it was a little like the North versus the South but it was all in fun. Check out the Cowboy Action Scores for April 14th, 2013 but make sure you got a crying towel handy or maybe for the next shot try bribing the score keeper with a 20 dollar bill ! That 20 dollar bribe didn't work for me the last time I shot at North Mountain, they all were staring at me with their hands on their six shooters !

Posted by csmith on April 13, 2013 at 9:11 am

The long awaited Bulletin Board section of the website is underway. The goal is to provide somewhat of a club members area, including the Bulletin Board / Trading Post content from the old site as well as improved photo galleries to better support the large amounts of photos that we are anticipating. The majority of the new content is still in development, however the improved Photo Galleries are available now. In addition to moving all of the previous photos into the new galleries, approximately 250 Practical Handgun photos have been added in addition to photos of the Clubhouse/Bathroom Remodel progress.

The news feed on the landing page has been shortened to show only the latest 3 news posts. You can find a full list of the news archive by clicking on the All News link located above the news feed on the right side.

Dues Paying Day & Work Day - April 6th

Posted by rhunsinger on April 9, 2013 at 10:29 pm

We had approx. 22 members that showed up to pay their dues and approx. 10 members for the work day. The members for the work day split up into two groups, one group went with Denny Jaskiewicz out to the range with his equipment and did major repairs along with a massive clean up and they were not very happy with the different types of trash the members shot up and left behind. The other group was bullwhipped around inside and outside of the club house cleaning up, removing trash then making a dust cloud sweeping the floor you could not hardly see through with Arnold Halye cracking the whip.
