Lawton Ft. Sill Rifle and Pistol Club to Host Sighting In Day
Fall is finally here which means hunting season is just around the corner. Deer and elk season will start next month in October and run through mid-January 2022 for all the various methods of harvesting. There are of course separate seasons for archery, primitive/muzzleloader, and gun for youth and adults. For all the details visit the ODWC (Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation). If you're planning to be a part of the gun deer or elk season you'll need to get your rifle sighted in and ready for the season.
Coming up on Saturday, October 9th 2021 (10-09-21) the Lawton, Fort Sill Rifle and Pistol Club will be hosting a free "Sighting-In-Day" at their gun range. You're invited to come out and zero in your rifle, everyone is welcomed and you don't have to be a member of the Lawton, Fort Sill Rifle and Pistol Club to participate. They're doing this as a public service to all local and area hunters to prepare for the 2021 hunting season.
The club will provide targets posted at 100 yards. Shooters should provide their own rifle and ammunition, as well as hearing and vision protection. Shooters may also provide rifle rests and spotting scopes for their own use. There will be no charge to shooters for this event, but pre-registration is required. Pre-registration will prevent disappointment on Sighting-In Day. Shooters who arrive at the range without Pre-registration will be allowed to shoot only if time remains after the pre-registered shooters have finished.
To register, send your first and last name, email address, and date of birth to firstname.lastname@example.org. Loaded firearms are not permitted on the range except on the firing line. Firearms should be brought to the range cased and unloaded. Upon arrival, shooters will be directed to the parking area. Shooters will receive a short briefing on firearms safety and range protocol. The range will be under the supervision of NRA (National Rifle Association) certified RSOs (Range Safety Officers) at all times. Shooters are asked to cooperate with the RSOs to ensure a safe shooting experience for everyone involved.
