We'd also like to remind everyone
of two important security issues that have been violated on several
1. The gate must be locked behind
you except during public shooting events which normally occur on
Sundays. If the gate is locked when you get to the club, lock the gate
behind you. If you are leaving the gate open for a public event, make
sure the pin is in place and is locked. Whether closing the gate or
leaving it open, always replace the pin in the receiver and lock it.
2. Please remember that you may not loan your key to
anyone else under any circumstances. This includes loaning keys to
family members. You must be present and accompany all guests at all
times. If you loan your key to another person, including family, your
membership will be revoked.
Nauset Rod and Gun Club opened
with a hail of gunfire beginning the 200-yard shoot of the month. There
were five participants Gerald Costa, Larry Baker, Pete Parker, Chris
Cutter, and Gabe Selfe. They Shot The Color Game with medium poppers.
After sighting in and making absolutely sure everyone was hitting the
steel, the games opened! Six rounds were shot in total with a
friendly, chilly breeze in the air. Every round was a success with zero
safety incidents, but a lot of lead thrown down at the steel. Gerald
Costa was the winner of round one firing all 9 shots, with hits, in
50.45 seconds. Larry Baker was the winner of round two with a score of
51.88 seconds. Gabe Selfe, shooting Larry Bakers brain frying rifle, won
round three. With Pete Parker winning round four, shooting Gabe Selfe’s
rifle. Larry took round five and Gerald took round six for all the
marbles in the bag. After the shoot we all enjoyed Gerald and Chris’s
pistols because we couldn’t resist taking a few shots at the steel.
Anyone interested in shooting
200 yards should contact Gabriel Selfe 774-722-4099. There are club
rifles available and ammo to go with them for a small charge. Hope to
see you all on the first Saturday of the month for the monthly 200-yard

The club has grown
rapidly over the past few years and now stands at over 450 members.
This has had its advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage is that
it is impossible to know everyone and to always recognize who is or who
is not a member. For this reason, it is extremely important, and very
much appreciated, that everyone adheres to these rules and policies.

The club is now
offering a training program for its members on the Fundamentals of
Marksmanship. Learn how to actually hit what you’re aiming at by
attending a class conducted by a professional firearms instructor with
over 35 years firearms training experience. The course is being taught
by Rich Rosenthal, retired chief of the Wellfleet Police Department, who
served as a sergeant and lieutenant in the NYPD’s Firearms and Tactics
Section. Rich conducted, among other things, that department’s Police
Firearms Instructors Training School. The training he will be giving
members for this program will cover:
ØSight Picture: What
should you be focusing on? Which is your master eye and what if your
master eye and your dominate hand are different?
ØTrigger Control: What
happens when you slap, jerk or yank on the trigger? What are some proper
trigger control techniques and how are they mastered?
ØProper Grip: How do
you properly hold your revolver, pistol, either one or both types?
the various shooting stances out there, which is the best for you?
ØBreath Control: Is it
important? Why and when?
Cost for this
training is $100, checks made out to the Nauset Rod and Gun Club. Bring
your handgun. If that’s an issue, let Rich know and he can bring a few
“loaners” (.38 special caliber or .22 long rifle caliber). You’ll also
need some factory ammo (around 100 rounds) plus safety equipment (“eyes
