18JUN - Thanks to the 51 guns that came out today for our July Tactical Carbine Match.  It was another hot day with the heat index pushing triple digits.  There were 5 “Maytag normal” stages and in honor of Thunder being at the match we used our Thunder Mountain prop.  Welcome to our newest shooters Robert L., Chris P. Joe D., and our newest junior shooter, The Smaller Navar.

Thank you to our Valley gang of shooters who made the long trek north.  It’s always a pleasure to have you at our match. Thank you to Rusty Fickes for coming out on Saturday to give Maytag and Hal9000 a hand with setup and picking up the ice for the match. A big thanks to those who stayed to take the stages down and put things away after the match.

We did experience a prop malfunction at the end of the day.  Turns out it was a blown fuse.  Maytag has picked up our 4 additional motors for the props so should this happen again we can do a quick change out.

Texas Carbine is now a recruiting club member of the NRA and TSRA.  We will have membership applications available at our matches.  If you have any questions about membership contact HAL9000.  Texas Carbine is a proud supporter of our 2nd amendment rights.

Texas Carbine Associate Member Cards are now available. If you paid your TC Associate Member dues your card will be available for pickup at the match.  If you also participate in the Starry Gun Range membership program, you will need to show your TC member card as you check in and prior to using the club bays.  Billy and Richard will be enforcing this check in policy.  As a reminder you are not allowed to bring any guests and you can only shoot those guns you would use in competition, i.e. no bolt rifles downrange.  If you would like to become a TC Associate Member, the forms are available on our webpage or we will have them at the signup table during matches.

The TC core group got together after the last match and have come to the decision that the following “HOT MONTH” rules will be enforced.

  1. Squad size will be limited to 12 guns, 5 Squads maximum.  This will allow us to accommodate 60 guns.  Squading requests will be honored on a first pre-registered basis. There will be no wait lists for squads.
  2. We will accommodate all requests to shoot a 2nd gun, however the 2nd gun will cost $20. If you are a TC Associate member, the 2nd gun will cost $15.  We will bump 2nd guns to accommodate allowing more shooters.

Our next match is TC Steel on July 24th.

Our thoughts are prayers are with the LEO community as they are viciously being attacked from all sides.  Stay safe and cover your six.

Again thanks to everyone who joined us today and we hope to see you again soon.

26 JUN - Thanks to the 37 guns that came out today for our June TC Steel Match.  It was another hot day with the heat index pushing triple digits.  There were 4 “Maytag normal” stages and 1 “SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE” stage, said in my best Gomer Pyle voice.  The surprise stage was awesome with lots of positive comments received.  Welcome to our newest shooters Nan W, and Ron W.  Thanks to those who stayed to take down the stages and put things away after the match.

Texas Carbine is working on becoming an NRA Gold Medal Club.  To accomplish this, we need to meet specific criteria so at our next couple of matches we are going to ask you to let us know if you are an NRA or TSRA member or both.  Texas Carbine is now a recruiting club member of the NRA and TSRA.  We will have membership applications available at our matches.  If you have any questions about membership contact HAL9000.  Texas Carbine is a proud supporter of our 2nd amendment rights.

13 JUN - Thanks to the 53 guns that came out today for our June Carbine Match. Five fun stages and lots of new shooters. Welcome Ray R., Bill B., Jim L., Jimmy L., Cody L., Lonnie M., and Jim M.  Thanks to EOD John, Billy Carbine, El Whitemore guy, Rusty F. and Ryan O., who came out to set up on Saturday.  Thanks to those who stayed to take the stages and put things away after the match. 

This match we started providing Ice Water for those who didn’t bring any or enough.  We will continue this practice throughout the hot months. 

On another matter our thought and prayers go out the victims and families of the shooting this weekend in Orlando.  Evil has come to our shores once again, and anyone can be in the wrong place at the right time and become a potential victim.  If you are licensed to carry please always do, if you don’t have your license then get one and carry to protect yourself and your family. 

Our next match is TC Steel on June 26th.  This match will have one blind/surprise stage. 

After today’s late finish the Core Group will be reviewing our squading policies to help even things out so we all finish close to the same time.  If you have any suggestions, please let us know. 

Again thanks to everyone who joined us today and we hope to see you again soon. 

24 MAY - Great day very fun stages with 38 guns coming out for some steel shooting.  The only down thing today was or I should say things is the firkin mosquitoes. OMG they were bad. It is nice to see our members enjoying the match and we welcome 3 new shooters to the TC family, Ryan O, Matt C., and Dustin A.  We sincerely hope you had a good time and will be back for the next match.

We are saying farewell to Aram C., his bride and new baby as they have been transferred to the east coast.  We are also saying so long for a while to Duane M. who is off to Colorado for the summer.

A big thanks to Justin Credible who came out early on Saturday and got all of the targets out and on the stages before anyone else got there.

Saturday, May 21st was Armed Forces Day and Monday, May 30th is Memorial day and with that we want to thank all of our active duty and veterans as we remember all those who have sacrificed to make this the greatest country that has ever been.

We will not be holding a match on May 29th, (5th Sunday of May).  Our next match will be our normal monthly Tactical Carbine Match on June 12th.   Hal9000 might even break out the much talked about but never brought out 22TCM pistol.  The stages will be posted to our forum in a week or so.   Thanks to everyone who came out today and we hope to see you again real soon.
