Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Wink Re: 1000 yard ranges?

Years ago there used to be one at Wellsboro PA. Don't know if it is still there or not. Marcellus may have run over t. Shame if it did.

About 15-20 minutes north of Williamsport there is a 1000 yard range/club.

http://www.pa1000yard.com/

Only $35 a year to be a member.

Very nice club house.

Check the site out and you will find people come from all over the country to shoot here.

Many keep campers right on site (all year round I believe) so they have a place to stay right there.

They appear to welcome anybody there.

We took a motorcycle ride up one day when they were just finishing up for and got a chance to talk to some of the members.

I hope that helps!!

God bless!!

+1 on Ridgway Rifle Club. Silhouettes from 300 meters to 1000 yards, lots of fun. (But it's a pretty long hike from York).
