May Kansas Concealed Carry Class

8 HOURS MAY 3, 20148AM to 6PM


April USPSA Match

At long last we’ll get to shoot USPSA this Sunday April 6th!  The forecast is for sunshine and 60 degrees.


As always we’ll begin set up at 8:00 AM and go hot at 10:00 AM.  Please be there and registered by 9:30 so our most excellent stats guy Dave has time to set up squadding.

March Club Meeting

Bone Creek Sport and Gun Club meeting this Thursday (3/13) at 7pm at Napoli’s in Pittsburg. Come early and enjoy some great food!

March Pistol Match

We’re on for the first pistol match of the year at Bone Creek Gun Club Sunday March 2nd (weather dependent).

As always we’ll begin set up at 8:00 AM and go hot at 10:00 AM.  Please be there and registered by 9:30 so our most excellent stats guy Dave has time to set up squadding.

Bad weather exception – The weather forecast is for freezing rain/snow and a high of 25.  If it is just cold we will shoot.  If it’s cold and wet we will postpone to April 2nd.  A simple rule of thumb is if you need to use your windshield wipers or roads are icy we won’t shoot and if things are dry we will.

If you have any question of whether the match is on or not Sunday morning just send a text to me at 620-249-0037.



Appleseed banner
Saturday Sep 28th & Sunday Sep 29th
Two locations to choose from for a great weekend of shooting!
Learn the American heritage of rifle marksmanship and Revolutionary War history!
Learning our heritage

On the line


Appleseed founder Fred will be our lead instructor in Pittsburg!
Longtime Appleseed instructor Daniel Hensch will run Tulsa.
Enjoy a fun filled weekend of top notch riflery and learn stories of Revolutionary War heroes you’ve never heard in school.



Register online today – Under 21 shoots for $20, Ladies $40 and
Men $80 for two days of world class instruction. Less if just one day.
LEO’s, all military and elected officials shoot free! Spread the word.
(registering in advance gets you a t-shirt and helps us bring enough gear)



Who can shoot – Anyone who can safely handle a rifle. Shooters as young as 5 and over 70 have taken part. Kids and adults, moms & dads and youth organizations are welcome.
Scouts – This is not a scouting program but the skills you learn will make merit badge qualification a walk in the park. This is a rare chance
to learn rifle shooting skills far beyond the average shooter.
Military and Law Enforcement – This class is much more than the Basic Rifle Marksmanship taught to all service members and teaches skills closer to the Squad Designated Marksman. The course is well suited to a beginner but allows a skilled shooter to advance to a much higher level.


Shooting is done on miniature targets at 25 yards that represent shots of 100 – 400 yards. Any kind of rifle is welcome but semi-autos with peep sights or scopes and removable magazines work best.

The short distance makes rimfires like Ruger’s 10/22 an excellent training rifle.

Centerfire rifles like the AR, M14, FAL, etc. are welcome if you can afford to feed them!
There may be a chance to shoot to 200+ yards on the second day if you shoot centerfire.
