Anne Arundel Fish & Game Conservation Association
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect
themselves against tyranny in government.”
- Thomas Jefferson
Last Call for
May NRA Basic Pistol Course!
From the President
Hello Fellow Members,
By the time you read this
month’s column we will have
just held our first sanctioned
weekend of the year. The parking
lot and the meadow were full of
vehicles. The Bulls Eye shooters
were holding a 2700, while the
Cowboys had quite a turn out.
I had the pleasure of watching a
part of both matches and enjoyed
it very much.
“You are required to
police all brass
no matter which range
you are on.”
I received a report that someone
was shooting on the action pistol
bays. This is allowed when there
is an AAF&G Range Safety
Officer present at all times
who is not shooting. But please
remember to police your brass
and DO NOT SHOOT any of
the steel targets as their use is for
matches only. Also it seems a lot
of 9mm and .22 brass was found
on action pistol bays 2 and 3. You
are required to police all brass no
matter which range you are on. If
you have any questions about the
rules for any of the ranges, you
can refer to AAF&G range rules
President, continued on Page 6.

T

knowledge, the fundamentals of pistol shooting, firing the first shots, various
shooting positions and pistol sports and activities. In addition, the course
covers pistol cleaning and storage as well as the selection of a pistol based on
your needs.

required.
Currently, we do not have enough participants registered for the class to

this opportunity. Register by email at [email protected] Meg Clarke
A Special Thanks
J
ust wanted to thank each of you for your support for my candidacy
to serve on the NRA Board of Directors. Unfortunately, I came up just a little short this year but fully intend
to stay actively involved with the NRA and will hopefully see some of
you at the convention in St. Louis. Hopefully, I might get another opportunity in the future and will do
a better job in my campaign.
Thanks again for the support………Jeff Crane

Board of Directors Report
N
ow that the shot curtain has been repaired from
February’s windstorm and the modifications of
lowering the sections to the bottom to keep low shot
from leaving the trap range are complete, I’d like to share
some of the behind-the-scene activity that took place to
make that happen. Decisions had to be made regarding
expenditures for the curtain modifications, scheduling for
the repairs, where the club was going to get the money
and specifically, since this was going to be a club expense,
the need for a vote by the Board of Directors. Of course,
all of this took place after our Board meeting. Our club
President, Steve Love, was the main coordinator for these
actions. Along with John Hollingshead, our Stewardship
chair, and input from several board members, he worked
out the details for these actions. This was all done via
email with notes, suggestions, and proposals flying across
the net. The $3,500 cost for the modifications will come
from the 2012 shotgun budget ($2,000) and the AAF&G
general fund ($1,500).
This, I believe, is the first time a vote by your Board
was taken by email. All of the Board members had all
the facts, had the opportunity to offer suggestions and
express opinions and were able to vote on the matter.
Kudos go out to all.
During our May Board meeting we will be discussing
the issue of how best to serve those members who do
not have Internet access in getting the latest copy of our
SCORE newsletter. The costs associated with printing,
collating, and mailing the hard copy versions are rising
and AAF&G may be passing some or all of the expense
on to those members. Stay tuned.
That’s it for now. Read your newsletter for upcoming
events and classes, and enjoy the spring weather.

Fingerprinting Services
N
eed your fingerprints taken for FL, VA or
other CCW permits? Effective at the close of
business on April 13, 2012, the Anne Arundel County
Police Department will no longer be providing civilian
fingerprinting services. This is due to State requirements
that go into effect requiring that all fingerprints submitted
for civilian background checks (gun
permits, job applications, various
license applications, etc.) be submitted
electronically from digitally captured
fingerprints. Ink-rolled fingerprints
are no longer being accepted.
Although the Anne Arundel
County Police Department utilizes
“Livescan” technology to capture
the fingerprints of criminal arrestees,
it is not equipped to capture and
electronically transmit digitally captured fingerprints for
civilian background check purposes. The following link
provides a list of private and State-operated locations that
do provide these services:

May Shotgun!
A
s we get deeper into spring there has been an increase in
shotgun shooting with more and more folks coming to
shoot clays. We now have two trap machines operating, so
as shooting volume increases we can open trap 3, which now
has voice operation functioning. The shotgun fields are open
on Fridays and Saturdays 10am-1pm, so come on out and
dust some clays and have a good time.
As announced last month, the pole-mounted
mechanical trap has been installed to the right of trap 3 at
the 16-yard line. This can be used during center-fire hours
when the trap fields are closed. It requires a minimum of
two people to participate (one working the thrower, and
one person shooting, with as many as 5 shooting). You
can shoot from trap 3, 16 yard line, positions 1 through
5. The thrower can operate with singles or doubles. Clays
can be purchased from local retailers or through AAF&G.
Please do not make any adjustments to the thrower. Eye
and ear protection is required, and no one under the age
of 18 is allowed without adult supervision. Follow all
regulations as outlined for the shotgun field and follow
center-fire hours only.
We still need volunteers to operate the shotgun field, so
please contact Joe Ruzzi at [email protected] to give
us a hand. Shotgun volunteers receive reduced shooting
fees and a few hours helping can be a lot of fun.
There will be a shotgun workday in May. Date and time
will be announced at the May meeting and through email.
Please come out and give us a hand for about two hours.
The Sunday May 20, 2012 shotgun clinic is filling up
fast (only 4 positions left), so please get in contact with
Bob Yurwitz, [email protected] with names and
ages of those who would like to participate. Once all
positions are filled, you will be placed on a standby list.
There will be some classroom discussion starting at 9:00
AM followed by lots of trap shooting. Shells and trap fees
will be included in the clinic price of $50.00 for adults and
$35.00 if under 18. Shotguns will be available for those
who do not have one, but we encourage you to bring your
own if you have one.
Thank you,

Junior Rifle Program
T
he Junior Rifle Orientation Classes for 2012 are May

have a waiting list established for those wishing to take
an Orientation Class. I can’t promise I’ll have room for
everyone to take a class this year. Those that are children
of club members take precedent over those that are not.
We practice most Sundays from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. If you
want information on the Junior Rifle Program, please
email me at [email protected]
I would like to welcome back the following Junior
Team members: Zack Anna, Courtney Cowger, Aaron
Satzberg, Ty Sisk, Chris Morris, Chloe Manuncia and
James Marsh. The junior members returning are: Chris
Ours, Leo Brown, Thomas Derry, Aidan Griffin,

Kimber Custom
Classic 1911 type
1 .45acp. This is
one of the original
Clackamas, Oregon
pistols, very
collectible. The
serial number makes
it one of the first
2000 to be made in
1996.
As a type 1, it has
no firing pin safety giving it one of the best trigger pulls
you can get in a 1911. This one has a Novak adjustable
rear sight and fiber optic front sight as I used it for IDPA.
The original sights are also included along with the
original box, papers and one Kimber-marked magazine.
This gun will shoot one hole ragged groups with a 200
grain SWC bullet and 5.9 grains of Bullseye. It is almost as
tight as the day it was made. $650
SKB 85TSS Over Under Shotgun. This is a Competition
Skeet 28ga, with nickeled receiver, fancy wood, 30 inch
barrels, adjustable comb and Greg Hissum installed
adjustable butt pad. It has ejectors, a Greener cross bolt
lock up and no automatic safety. The barrel selector is
on the trigger guard where it is easy to find. No messing
around with a tang mounted safety/barrel selector.
It comes with the box, papers and extra chokes. It is in
excellent condition and is almost as tight as new. This is an
excellent gun for Sporting Clays! $ 1400
Please contact John Michelli at 410-798-8444 or
[email protected] if interested. If you want me
to bring a gun to the range, give me a heads up on when
you are coming and I will bring it out. Pistol transfers
need to be done at the MSP or by a Class 1 FFL holder. If
you want some pictures, send me an email message.

posted on each range.
A great way to find this information and more is to
attend one of the general meetings. They are held the
second Thursday of the month. Dinner is served at 7pm
and the food is always very good! If you would like to
only attend the meeting it begins at 8pm.
Also during the sanctioned weekend I ran into Meg

On April 7th AAF&G held an IDPA women’s only
clinic for women who would like to know more about
the sport. It was a huge success from everything I have
heard. There was nothing but praise from all involved.
AAF&G will be holding a shotgun clinic on Sunday
May 20th. This will be a great way to either try it for
the first time or if you are looking to improve your
bird count. Now is your chance. I understand we
have received quite a response to this clinic. If you are
interested your best bet is to contact Bob Yurwitz. You
can find his contact information in the SCORE.
I look forward to seeing you at the meetings,

O
ne of the best marksmen in the FBI was passing
through a small town. Everywhere he saw evidences
of the most amazing shooting. On trees, on walls, and
on fences there were numerous bull's-eyes with the
bullet hole in dead center. The FBI man asked one of the
townsmen if he could meet the person responsible for this
wonderful marksmanship. The man turned out to be the
village dimwit.
“This is the best marksmanship I have ever seen.” said
theFBI man. “How in the world do you do it?”
“Nothing to it,” said the dimwit. “I shoot first and draw
the circles afterward.”

Vintage Rifle –April 14, 2012. We had twelve semiauto rifle shooters, mostly members with only two non-members for the April Vintage Rifle match. This month we saw 6 M1 Garands, 4 M1 Carbines, an M1A, and a Yugo
SKS. Not quite the variety that one can see at a bolt action match, but the variety of pre-1964 semiauto rifles just
isn’t as wide, either. Roy H. was overall high scorer with a 275/4X and was high scorer in the Prone Slowfire phase
with a 98/2X. Steve A. and Andrew B. share the honors for high scorer in the Prone rapid-fire phase with 94/2X

Next month many of the AR15 and Vintage Rifle shooters will be at Camp Butner for the Eastern Regional CMP
Games Matches and will be shooting M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, Springfield M1903/1903A3, and other vintage military
bolt action rifles. It is to be hoped that the CMP-style matches are providing ample practice for that event. Good luck to
all. Bring glory to AAF&G!

Cowboy Action
I
t was a beautiful day for a shoot
- we couldn’t have asked for
better. We had a great turnout
with 26 shooters. The day began
with the usual safety-brief
followed by the pledge
and a prayer. Shooters
were assigned their
respective possies and
after a final equipment
check, shooting began.
When bangin n’
clangin was done, the range
was cleaned and we retired to our favorite
watering hole for some clinkin n’ drinkin.
Top shooters for the day were:
Blue Ridge Burt - 147.04
Durango Dude – 152.61
Wicklow Wrangler - 183.57
Unfortunately, there were no clean matches for the
day, but all had a great time.
Next match will be: Saturday, May 19, 2012.
Just a reminder, The June and September matches
will be on the second Saturday; June 9 and September
8.
Adios for now and may the Good Lord take a

up. There are only three hours in which to shoot center
fire and shooters want to make the most off it.
• DO notice how clean the range is when you get there.
• DO other shooters a favor and clean up after
yourselves.
• DO bring a set of 1 inch furring strips with you to
ensure you have something to staple your cardboard to.
• DON’T leave your old shot up cardboard or targets
on the range. The next shooter doesn’t want it so just
throw it in the trash or recycling when you are finished.
• DO keep an eye on one another when shooting.
Remember, the range rules require one shooter to act as
Safety Officer, whether they are a range RSO or not.
• DON’T shoot close to the roof supports and don’t
place targets so high so that a miss can hit the baffles.
• DO the most you can to make your range day an
enjoyable one.
See you at the range,

BULLSEYE PISTOL REPORT
T
he NRA outdoor conventional pistol competitive shooting season
has started at AAF&G. Since the last SCORE, two NRA sanctioned
tournaments were held at the bullseye pistol range. The tournaments included some of the best
BE pistol competitors in the Mid-Atlantic region, and a good number of AAF&G shooters. The
high points of the tournaments were as follows:
The first AAF&G NRA Tournament for 2012 was held March 31. It was a sanctioned NRA
Approved 1800. An approved match is the lowest sanctioning level provided by the NRA. Scores fired in these matches
do not qualify for establishing National Records. Matches filed in Registered, Regional, State Championship, and the
National Championship can be considered for national records. Firing an 1800, which is two 900 aggregates, one fired
with a .22 pistol and one fired with a center fire pistol, allows us to conduct a NRA sanctioned event on an AAF&G
non-sanctioned weekend. This is because we fire it on Saturday and finish before 1:00pm. A total of 23 shooters
competed in the 1800. An overview of the top finishers with each aggregate score for .22 and center fire, with the “x”
count and the individual two gun grand aggregate is as follows:
