Congratulations – Angelo Porco Shoots 1st 25 in Skeet!

Angelo is a member of the TDSC Elite Clay Dusters along with 11 other students
learning to shoot skeet on Thursday evenings. They range in age from 11 to 18
years old. The team is part of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), a youth
development program in which adult coaches and other volunteers use shooting
sports to teach and demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, honesty, integrity,
teamwork, and other positive life skills.

Watch Angelo break low 8 twice to complete his first perfect round in skeet.

Watch Angelo’s hat get destroyed as is the tradition after shooting your first perfect round.

If anyone knows a student interested in joining the team, contact Will Kmetz, administrator, and organizer at will.kmetz@gmail.com.

Pistol Indoor Range News 10-22-2023

The TDSC Pistol Team will be using the indoor range every Wednesday from 6PM till 9PM starting November 1, 2023. Club members will not have access to the range during this time. If you are interested in the matches, come out and see how one is fired. Our team competes against other teams in the Pittsburgh area. This past summer the team placed 2nd in the .22 Cal. category and placed 1st in the Center Fire category.

Skeet and Pistol&Rifle Range Rules

After using Skeet fields, Refresh both traps with targets, Pick up hulls around stations and don’t forget station 8, make sure its safe and no one is shooting on other fields. When finished place empty target boxes in the burn bin, if no one else is using the field after you close garage doors, lock up and turn lights off in both skeet houses.

After using pistol and rifle ranges pick up all fired brass and pull ropes for the falling plates, please coil up all ropes and place them on the rack.

Range Brass Steel and Aluminum Rule

Because of changes at our local scrap facility, we ask that you separate your fired empties into three different groups. You will notice there will be buckets at the indoor, outdoor pistol, and rifle ranges marked BRASS, STEEL AND ALUMINUM. Please deposit your empties into the correct bucket. This will save a tremendous amount of work when the empties are taken to the scrap yard. NOTE: Spent primers are steel.

Outdoor Pistol Range Changes

There has been a change to the Outdoor pistol range. We now have a new method of posting targets. There are 5 wooden target holders leaning against the great wall. You can use the clothes pins to attach your targets to the plastic fencing. We have PVC pipe placed at 7 yds., 15 yds., and 20 yds. Each piece of pipe has a cap on it so it doesn’t fill with grass and weeds. The pipes are placed so that when you remove two caps you can lower the target legs into the pipe. The pipes are placed 32 inches apart to accept the target posts. Because the pipes were placed in the ground a shot time ago they are a little loose. Please be careful when removing a cap and placing the target posts into the pipes. When you are finished shooting, please carefully remove the target frame and place it against the wall and replace the cap. Do not push down hard on the cap or the next shooter will have a problem removing the cap.
On a separate note, it seems shooters are leaving the indoor pistol range lights and also the safety lights on after exiting the range. Please make sure all lights are turned off when you are finished shooting.
