    President’s Corner

    Here are a few highlights from the annual membership meeting for those that could not

    attend. In an effort to get a little more participation during the summer months, a relaxed dress

    code, which allows shorts and t-shirts was implemented and a fair number took advantage. In an

    effort to get a younger crowd interested in our sport, the Columbus Area 4H Shooting Sports Club

    will be using part of the range for their activities and the Katy Boy Scout troop will also have one

    of their outings at the range. Let’s hope a few of those youngsters get curious and come join our

    fun. We will also be hosting the 2019 TSRA Texas State Championship in May. I’m looking for-

    ward to that event!

    Speaking of new shooters, we had 3 visitors shoot with us. Two brand new, Pecos River Bob

    and Revenant Roy. I believe Revenant Roy has Texas roots, but Pecos River Bob came all the way

    from Florida. The other was a friend we hadn’t seen in quite a while, Capt. Buffalo came in from

    San Antonio way to spend the day with us. Glad to have you gentlemen with us and hope you

    had a good time.

    As always, tell everyone what you like about THSS and tell me or one of the board members

    what you don’t like and we’ll work on it.

    On Target

    By THSS™ Range Master, Texas Billy Since hunting season is only a few weeks away, I thought I’d review some gun safety rules for hunting. Some of us do shoot at other times other than CAS. The TSRA new brief last week was linked to the NRA Fami- ly article, “7 gun safety rules you must follow in the field”. They did such a good job highlighting the rules that I’ll just provide an overview of this article, giving both TSRA and the NRA the entire credit.

    1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction; ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot; ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

    2. Be positive of your target's identity before shooting. When in doubt, don't shoot.

    3. Take time to fire a safe shot. If you're not sure of what's on the other side of the game animal...don't do it.

    4. If you fall... a. If you fall, try to control where the muzzle of your gun points. b. After a fall, check your gun for dirt and damage, and make sure the barrel is free of obstructions.

    5. Scopes are not binoculars. Never use a riflescope as a substitute for binoculars.

    6. Know how to cross a fence. a. When you are alone and must cross a fence, unload your firearm and place it under the fence

    with the muzzle pointed away from where you are crossing. b When hunting with others, unload the gun and keep the action open. Have one of your compan-

    ions hold the gun while you cross. When over the fence, take your gun and your companion's unloaded gun, so that he or she may cross safely.

    7. Know when to unload. When finished hunting, unload your firearm before returning to camp.

    Please share these helpful rules with others you hunt with. We want them to be safe in the field as well. Thanks for stopping by and remember… Always keep you’re the muzzle pointed in a safe direction and keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to get “ON TARGET”. Texas Billy
