Hey cowboy shooters. I have 2 boxes of these and a bunch of .38 special brass. PM me if you are interested.
I'm grateful for the club in joining the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program)... Just got my bucket list item today!
Heads up Bellaire people, if you've visited three places stay home
I'm looking to purchase a used compound bow. I'm 5'10" If anyone knows of one that may be for sale please send me a PM. I'm looking for a quality first bow and some of the extras that I'd need to get started. I may hunt with it eventually, for now its just to get into the sport without an immediate need to upgrade. I know nothing of brands but to put it in comparison to something I do know I'm looking for the Mossberg 500 or Glock 19 of bows ;)
Is there a long range rifle range in the future? 300, 500 and 600 yards?

Operating as usual

Terry Drinkwine Outdoors!

From your fellow club member Terry Drinkwine -
Like most of us, I'm tired of this bubble we're all in and along with the yearly cabin fever syndrome, I'm just plain bored.
So, I'm offering to hold a few fly tying classes at the BCC clubhouse leading up to the opening day of trout season.

I have the vices, etc., and materials required for intro classes. There would be no cost.
We will hold them on Sundays for about an hour or two beginning March 7th at 2 PM. A Sunday afternoon -
on a bi-weekly basis through April 24.

Covid protocols will be followed including mask.

So here’s the plan. The first 6 members to contact Eldon - or if more than 6 - we will draw names from my hat.
Then for the next session – the second 6 will go to the class.

All you will need is your glasses for close up work and learning!

Thanks! Eldon & Terry
