    Default Steel City Gun Club - Bethlehem, Pa.

    Trying to start a thread here for current members.
    S. C. G. C. is a relatively unknown but well maintained shooting club that has been around for quite sometime.
    Because of the "old school" philosophy of most of it's leadership and membership, you won't find much content online.
    They don't have a flashy website, regular meetings or advertisements.
    Which is why I'm attempting to reach out to other members in a format that can enable us to communicate anytime, anywhere. Not just once a year at the fire house. This will give us a forum to discuss anything club related.

    I've been a member at Steel City for several years. What's wrong with old school?

    smit308,

    Nothing wrong with "old school" at all. In fact that's what keeps this club flying under the radar, so to speak. It's a "best kept secret" kind of place. I was just attempting to create an online place for members to talk with other members, at their own convenience, about anything from was the range crowded today ?, to who's shooting next weekend ? I'll meet you there, etc. I'm certainly not looking to create a website or advertise. I'm just opening the lines of communication with fellow members.

    PS: It's nice to hear from a fellow member on the PAFOA forums.

    Enjoy.

    RichG,

    You'll probably have to wait until "the annual meeting" which is held in the fall. If this thread amounts to anything, you may be able to get info as the date approaches.

    What a perfect day to be at the range. Shot my R.R.A. Lar-15 for the first time today. Consistantly hit the orange at 100 yards with the iron sights right out of the box. Messed around with the Ruger Single Six for awhile too. It's a fun plinker. Thought I saw a sign on the door of the Steel City fire house about a possible shoot. I only briefly glanced at it while passing by.
    Not sure if it's at the S.C.G.C. or somewhere else.
    If anyone has any details, please share.

    Yeah I too have always wanted to join scgc but could never find out who I need to contact or how to contact someone about joining. Who is in charge of new members?

    Zman111,

    There isn't much in the way of communication. I signed up a few years ago at a meeting. I think they only hold 1 per year. As this thread grows, hopefully more info will be posted about future meetings, etc.

    Spent a few hours at the range today. Tinkered with the AR for about an hour and then fired off about 100 rounds through the .22LR revolver at 25 Feet, 50 feet and 25 yards. It was a scorcher !!! and humid. Beats a day at work though. Talked with Bill for awhile. He was cleaning up the grounds when we got there.
