Pistol Range Day This Sat July 14th!
If you love your guns and love to shoot, this Saturday at 9AM will be a day you will not want to
miss. The North Bench Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting its first PISTOL RANGE
DAY fund raiser with shooting events for all levels and abilities. It doesn’t matter if you are an
accomplished professional shooter or an amateur “pistolero”, it’s sure to be a fun day for
everyone while supporting the volunteer fire fighters in our community.
Some of the exciting events you can try your skill and luck on are steel plate racks and steel
dueling trees. There will be two dueling trees as well as two plate racks; one of each for center
fire pistols (9mm, 40S&W and 45ACP) and one of each for 22LR ammunition.
If you’re tired of punching paper and want to shoot some reactive steel targets like you’ve seen
on TV and the internet, this is your chance. On the dueling tree game, the goal is to shoot each
of the six plates around to your opponent’s side before he gets all six of them onto your side.
You’ll each have seven shots and fire at the same time, so make every shot count! With the plate
rack game, your goal is to knock down as many plates as you can in less time than your opponent
with each firing up to 8 shots.
Invite your friends and challenge them to a friendly shoot off! Each match is only a $3.00
donation for single tickets or you can get 10 match tickets for $25. The winner of each match
will receive a “Winners Ticket” which can be accumulated or “cashed in” individually for a
variety of great prizes of your choice at the on-site prize booth.
If you need a little more excitement, you can SHOOT A REAL MACHINE GUN. You’ve seen
the classics in all the movies, now it’s your turn to give it a try. For a $25 donation, you can
shoot your choice of a full auto HK MP5, UZI, or a WW2 Thompson M1A1 machine gun which
INCLUDES 25 rounds of ammo and the gun rental. Bring some cash and your camera, this is a
rare opportunity you will not want to miss.
All shooters will need eye and ear protection. You can bring your own ammunition and safety
gear and ammo and “eyes and ears” will also be available for sale at the Pistol Range Day event.
If your significant other is not a shooter, there will also be live bingo with the opportunity to win
the same great prizes as the shooters. There will also be vendors for your shopping pleasure and
of course GREAT FOOD. (Are you a vendor of anything? It doesn’t matter if it’s gun related.
You can still jump in! Call Lynda at 208-597-3663 NOW).
If you have not already seen the Tactical Innovations ELITE22 custom 22LR rifle built in a red,
white and blue “America” theme that is on display at Woody’s Pawn Shop on Main St. in
Bonners Ferry, it will also be on display at the Pistol Range Day event this Saturday. Raffle
tickets are $2.00 each or 3 tickets for only $5.00. Winner will be drawn at the Boundary County
Fair and must meet federal eligibility requirements. Winner need not be present to win.
Admission to the Pistol Range Day event is a $2 donation. However, if you throw down a $10
bill for a shot at the “America” red, white and blue rifle at the event gate, you’ll get in for FREE
and have a good shot at winning the rifle while supporting the North Bench Fire Department.
This first of its kind of event is your chance to support the North Bench Volunteer Fire
Department and have a lot of fun at the same time. Let’s make this Saturday a huge success so
we can make it an annual event that we can all look forward to. This is a day you DO NOT
WANT TO MISS. See you at the Kootenai Valley Rifle & Pistol Club gun range on Hwy 2 on
Saturday the 14th at 9AM!
