NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO) Course – The minimum age to become a credentialed NRA RSO is 21, and you must provide a valid and current NRA membership number on the day of the course, or it will hold up submission of a training report until received.  After the instructor submits the training report, applicants will be able to complete the credentialing process online (nrainstructors.org).  This NRA RSO course is limited to the first 10 LSA Club Members, 21 years of age or older, who register for this course and agree to actively participate as an RSO at the Club in some capacity (i.e., for any event/match held on LSA property where RSOs are needed, during youth training or events/matches, or during a busy weekend on any of our ranges), and the $75 per student fee will be covered by LSA – the Member is only required to pay for the cost of credentialing through the nrainstructors.org website.

The cost of a 2-year credential for NRA members is $35 & is $60 for non-NRA members.  If you are not already an NRA member and would like to become one prior to taking this course, it is recommended you call the NRA rather than join online.  If you are a prior, but not current NRA member, NRA Training still needs your old member number – call them if you don’t know it.  If participants do not have a valid NRA number in time for this course, it will complicate the credentialing process.  NRA members will use their membership number to create an account to complete the credentialing process online (nrainstructors.org).  Non-NRA members will receive an email with a number to use.

Registration for this course is required by June 4th, 2022 – Visit www.NRApistolinstructor.com and use the Contact form; please provide your full name including middle initial, date of birth, course date, course selection (NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO) Course at Lee Sportsmen’s Association with date), address, telephone, and email contact information, or contact Rob McDermott at 413-232-7700 or robmcdermott@verizon.net.

Weekly on Saturdays through the month of July 2022, the Rifle Range is proud to again offer member appreciation steel target shooting on the Rifle Range from 9am until about 12noon.  Steel targets will be setup at the 50 and 100-yard berms under the supervision of LSA Range Safety Officers (RSOs).  Cost is just your regular range fee: $3 for Members and $7 for Guests.  Dates: July 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th

Please join us on Saturday, July 23rd, 2022, from 8:30am until 1:30pm for the Massachusetts Pistol License Course (LTC-020), which qualifies participants to apply for a Massachusetts FID or LTC, plus pistol licenses in Connecticut, Florida, etc.  This comprehensive one-day course includes information for federal and state firearm laws, operation and safe handling of firearms, shooting fundamentals, care and cleaning, concealed carry methods, a live fire session on the LSA Indoor Pistol Range, and much more.

Course fee is $160 due in cash on the day of the course. State license application fees and processing are not included. Participants will receive a course certificate, application forms, other resources and supporting documents.  Participants will also receive new Walker’s earmuffs and safety glasses that are theirs to keep.  Club membership applications will be available at the course.
